I’ve always been big on both note taking and creating lists for myself. I’ve never found a good web app that actually did a good job of combining these things. I wanted a to do list with notes, that featured robust list-making abilities, but also with pretty good note-taking ability. I didn’t just want notes related to the specific tasks in my to do list, I wanted to keep larger lists and notes independent of those tasks.
My Organizational Needs
Often times I just want to create a collection of things related to projects I’m working on. This may include lists, notes, images, and bookmarks. I just want them together so I have everything I need to be productive all in one place. I was tired of bouncing from a to do list app, to a notes app, and something else where I kept inspiring images, or pictures for reference.
Vimsio was born out of this desire. I’ve created my own system where I can create pages for my various projects that hose lists, notes, and photos. What I’ve found works really well for me is that posts can appear in multiple collections as well. I can have collections for my various projects, but I can also pull in things to other collections. For instance, I have collections for each client website that I’m working on, and each to do list for each of the projects I’ve also tagged to another view, so I can see all of the to do lists for my various projects in one place as well. This really helps keep me on track so I can see all of my tasks in one view, but when I’m ready to focus on a single project, I can just view everything related to that single project.
I’ve been using Vimsio on my own for years, slowly working on it over time. It is now a pretty robust tool that helps keep me on track and productive. I’m looking forward to adding in more features over time. I would love to add the ability to share collections and posts, add in a schedule to help complement my todo list, and even add messaging and chat functionality. But for now, I should get back to some real work and stay focused on my to do list.
