A simple task manager for OpenOffice.org

Filed under
OOo

If you spend most of your time in OpenOffice.org, you might want to be able to manage to-do lists and tasks without leaving the comfort of the office suite. Since Writer doesn't have such a feature, you can create your own no-frills task tool and at the same time sharpen your OOoBasic skills.

In a previous article, we covered how to build a handy basket tool. You can use the same techniques when creating a simple task manager. The one we'll build offers only three basic commands: add a task, view all tasks, and purge tasks.

This tool is part of Google's Writer's Tools extension, released under GPL. If you don't feel like building a tasks manager from scratch, grab the extension and start experimenting.
