There's no shortage of to-do managers and organisers on the web, but Sandglaz, a new web app that combines the best things from a day planner and a calendar together into an easy-to-use web app, really stands out.
Adding to-dos, reordering them and browsing your next actions are all easy operations that don't take a long tutorial to figure out. Sandglaz manages to be powerful and customisable without being difficult to use.
Regardless of the productivity system you use, Sandglaz has tools that work the way you work. If you're a GTD fan, the daily view shows you what you have on your plate right now, what your next actions are, and what you have to do later. If you're a fan of Covey's "four quadrant" approach to important and urgent to-dos, you'll appreciate the ability to organise your to-dos in groups called "grids" that show you your work in terms of what's urgent and important, what's important but not urgent, urgent but not important, or neither. If you'd rather just use Sandglaz as a day planner, you can do that as well with Sandglaz Infinity, the web app's premium service, which lets you organise your to-dos by urgency and when they need to be done at the same time.
Once you have some to-dos added to Sandglaz, you can reorder them by dragging and dropping them, mark them complete by checking them, set due dates and add additional details that you need to complete the task, or even share them with someone else on your team right from the checklist screen.
Basic accounts at Sandglaz are free and allow you to create unlimited grids and to-dos and share your to-dos with as many people as you want. Sandglaz Infinity adds weekly grids, to-do tagging, priority support and removes the ads. Infinity is free during beta so you can get a feel for all of Sandglaz's features, but when it launches it'll set you back $US6/month if you want to continue using it.
