Do you mean like the 'tasks' folder of evolution?
At this stage I've just written a flat HTML calendar page. I can
what needs to be done on any PC on the network, and years later I'll be
able to *easily* check up on who had what done for them on what date.
There are several ways of running any X program from any machine,
but if you really want a trouble-ticket sort of tracker for
multiple users/groups you might like RT. It is overkill for a
to-do list, but the price is right:
I've tried using calendar functions in various mail programs, but
only work on the local client. Not to mention that you need to
continuously run a behemoth program to check on what you should be doing
(for reminders about multiple activities during the day).
Yes, but the same program also checks for email which you
need to do anyway - and note that if your own terminal doesn't
have the capacity to run the programs you need you can run
it remotely on a more powerful machine that could be serving
many users. In fact if you have such a machine you might be
better off running your own desktop as a thin client.
