After more than one year using CheckVist, I decided to quit and return to my former Outliner 8 (PC Software) that I used for almost 8 years.
I consider CheckVist to be one (or THE) best outliner to be used in a browser. And this is the reason why I wanted to use it for my personnal life, while I kept using my other outliner Software at work.
But I just realised that :
- I have not the same Task-managing Speed that I have on PC, with a software.
- Having to play with differents lists instead of having one big Outline with only filter option is time-consuming and make me lost the overview
- I have tried a lot to play with CSS in order to get “Eyes-easy-to-read” list, but somehow didn’t manage it.
- Not having a fully functional android app to use on the go was a big lack for me (I like to use 10 minutes of free time in the bus to sort and move my tasks on my phone)
What could partially explain this experience, is the fact that I used a Outliner Software before, during 8 years… So of course there is a kind of a habit.
But on the other side, I didn’t try it for only 1 month and gave up after, I really transferred my 5500 tasks into Checkvist, and really used it for more than 1 year. I was active on the forum, and have tried every tricks to get the best of it.
But at the end, the “little more effort” I add to manage my personal Task in Checkvist, pushed me to not open it, and to rather do professional projects that I could better handle in the other tool.
Nevertheless, I still consider Checkvist as one of the best “online” outliner. I also like the community, and responsiveness regarding question/trouble we may have.
Take care ! And stay productive !
