Remember The Milk (RTM) is a task- and time-management web application. It allows users to manage tasks from any computer as well as offline.
Remember the Milk allows users to create multiple task lists. Added tasks can be edited to include (or not) various fields. Locations can be added, and an integrated Google Maps feature allows users to save commonly used locations. Tasks can also be organised by tags. Tasks can be postponed and Remember the Milk will inform users of the number of times that that task has been postponed.
Remember the Milk features the capability to manage tasks while offline. This feature is built upon the Gears software (formerly Google Gears). When a user reconnects to the internet their Remember the Milk account is updated to include offline changes. Events are stored online, so in the case of a user’s hard drive failure, no data is lost. The application supports publishing one’s tasks as an RSS news feed. It can export iCalendar files (.ics). Multiple task categories can be added and shared, allowing various levels of permissions for the users. This enables collaboration and sharing of schedules between groups or families.
