Need a software program that is comparable to Lotus Agenda


My boss is asking me to research a software program that is comparable to Lotus Agenda. Specifically he wants to be able to cross reference notes and calendar, to put the same note into multiple places specified by a header he creates…..

If I type “Call Gary about Cole Schotz lease”, it automatically places that same entry in
1) Tenants view, (Gary is recognized as a tenant)
2) Lawyers view ,(Cole Schotz is recognized as a lawyer)
3) Calls view
4) Calendar under Wednesday

If you ever used Lotus Agenda back ‘in the day’ he also really liked the simple keyboard strokes to change the to do date.

Any info you could provide would be greatly appreciated! Tks!

Hi & Welcome to LQ.

If your looking for a personal information manager for Linux try Evolution or Chandler.
Evolution will run on Linux, Unix, Windows and Gnome; it's under the GPL license.

Sorry I can't help you with Windows. I haven't ran Windows in about 6 years.

Hello and welcome to LQ.

I'd assume that you could still get the microsoft version to run on linux under either wine or dosbox.

Lotus Agenda never reached Windows: it was only DOS. The current equivalent for Linux would seem to be this

Hi.

I saw this thread awhile back but did not add to try searching or adding here: ...linuxquestions.../what-programs-would-you-like-to-see-ported-to-linux-105955
or your package manager and for needed features?

Dunno. That's a "Windows thing".

Back to our "Sponsor"...
Microsoft Onenote came close. And I do like that software. Scapbooking for nerds?
kbaskets I looked at.... meh.
zim-wiki is ok.

Chandler, RedNoteBook, and CherryTree are out there. Dunno nothing about them.
Installed, never spent any time using them.

Have a Great Day.
