Nothing else in its class

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Vorteile:

I started using a Palm Pilot back when they were first released by US Robotics, and I used Palm PDAs up through the TX. When I finally switched to an Android phone -- which I use far more as a PDA than a phone -- I was disappointed to be unable to find an app similar to iAmbic Agendus, which combined calendar, addressbook, notes, and to-do list functionality _and_ synced with a companion Windows application ... until I found EssentialPIM. It's exactly what I was looking for.

Nachteile:

Nothing, really. It's updated frequently, each time fixing glitches and adding functionality. Tech support is responsive.

Essential PIM review

5,0 letzten Monat Neu

Kommentare: Words cannot describe how Essential PIM made my life easier, from Managing emails, notes, passwords, contacts, everything. This on top of how the Devs handle support stuff like bugs, and how they cater to the needs of their users.

Vorteile:

I like EPIMs customizability and ease of use in general.. How this single application does everything I need. Store attachments, inter link the different modules, how flexible the Email Modules' Message Rules is that even when handling multiple accounts all at once (I have setup 12 different active email accounts in EPIM), messages from any or all accounts are segregated, filtered, and managed properly

Nachteile:

Having used EPIM since v3.74 (used to pay annually, then changed to lifetime), Most if not all cons I had in earlier versions had since been fixed and significantly improved.

Good but Still Needs Constant Attention

3,0 vor 4 Wochen Neu

Kommentare: Well after all these years I'm still using it because it's the answer to most of my problems... But I never feel like I can fully rely on it... There's always surprises that catch me off guard and cost me business

Vorteile:

All the calendar management that it provides and promises is exactly when I need to manage my workflow

Nachteile:

There are still a few design issues that are counterintuitive... And some failsafe calendar management protections that are missing... And periodic syncing catastrophes

A great and reliable personal management tool

4,0 vor 2 Monaten

Kommentare: I have tried many tools before using EssentialPIM and I have yet to find an application that even comes close to the core functions. Above all, I love the local synchronization of my data via WLAN with my various devices. I have been using the PRO version with multiple lifetime license for many years and have never had any major problems with the modules I use. The application also constantly saves backups, which fortunately I have only needed once so far, due to a user error. To this day, EssentialPIM is an important, constant and above all, reliable companion in my everyday life.

Vorteile:

- excellent and stable applications for Windows and Android (iOS version not used so far) - easy-to-use and reliable synchronization via WLAN - my data belongs to me, no cloud constraint - regular software updates - very user-friendly price policy (I have purchased several lifetime licenses and I think the price is absolutely fair) - dark mode support

Nachteile:

- no macOS client so far - the Windows client looks a little old-fashioned in terms of UI/UX functionality but is still absolutely useful

Windows and Android use

5,0 vor 7 Monaten

Kommentare: Over the years that I've had it I think it's a great program especially the help you receive if you have a problem. Always fast with their replys to my questions.

Vorteile:

The all in one funtionality of EssentialPIM.

Nachteile:

Not being able to add change a funtion that I don't use. Like I use Passwords to enter my Home Inventory. Would like to add an icon on left just for that or something else.

Everything together - calendar, tasks, contacts, appointments, notes

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I needed to have several different email templates that I could easily send to different types of leads, and then be able to manage the contacts. There is a lot I need to remember about my contacts, and the fact that I can add my own custom fields to the contacts made this exponentially easier to do. I've owned this product for a few years, and at the beginning it was having some issues with syncing to my phone, but over time, of course, it's grown and gotten better at everything. And the price was outstanding, making it a very good buy.

Vorteile:

I was struggling to manage my various appointments with potential and booked clients, but EssentialPIM solved all the problems and some I didn't even know I had. I was able to easily communicate with leads, manage appointments, and make sure I didn't miss any important events. Missing a wedding when you're the one who is performing the ceremony would be a pretty big problem, so I needed to be able to depend on my software. But the reason I most love it is because I can add custom fields to my contacts which I desperately needed.

Nachteile:

The worst part is simply the setup, not because the software makes it difficult though. It's just a process that you'd have to go through with any other software of this type. Just be prepared to do a little learning and a bit of setup to make sure it's all synced to everything and you have it all working your way.

Easy all-in Personal Information Manager

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: When i start my working day, EssentialPIM starts on my computer. It stays open the entire workday, and i use it for everything beside my invoice program. When i shut EPIM down, it still receives all incoming email and displays them next time i open the program.It really is a digital personal assistant on which i rely very much in my daily business operations. Never let me down for a single moment.

Vorteile:

No matter how small or large your business is, EssentialPIM fits like a glove around your daily business. Email, calendar, passwords, appointments, alerts, and notes: you have everything in one program.Settings are easy to do, and the program works with the user, not the other way around.Easy for a single user, or with a database in the cloud, for many users.Updates are frequent, multi-language interface.

Nachteile:

There are no minuses for this program. Just buy the PRO-version for life, and you are set for life.A small investment with very large positive impact and it will set you and your business up in no time, and as your business grows, EssentialPIM grows with you.

Buon software per la pianificazione delle attività

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Ho utilizzato il software per stabilire per un team aziendale delle scadenze periodiche e non che andavano rispettate regolarmente. Senza l'utilizzo di una funzione calendario vi era il rischio di dimenticare o lasciare indietro appuntamenti.

Vorteile:

EssentialPIM è un software molto semplice da utilizzare, è possibile esportare i calendari, rubrica ed altre informazioni in diversi formati, tra cui html, ed è sincronizzabile con altri sistemi. Semplice l'installazione e l'interfaccia altamente intuitiva. Ottima la funzione di ripetizione degli eventi, anche fino a data di termine impostata, utile per pianificazioni a lungo termine

Nachteile:

Le funzionalità nella versione freeware sono limitate, è necessario aggiornamento alla versione pro per un software completo.

Helps Organize Multiple Jobs

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Outstanding! I usually use a program for a year or two, get bored and then find something else. I've been using EPIM since version 5 or 6 and have no plans on changing my PIM program.

Vorteile:

The thing that I like the most about EssentialPIM is that so many of the functions are thoughfully integrated into the software. For instance, when I look at my task lists in a table view and I notice that I didn't add a category to a task, I can click in the Category filed and select one while still in table view. I don't have to open the actual task, edit it and then save it again. It doesn't sound like a big deal but it is appreciated. There are so many instances of conveniences like that throughout the software!

Nachteile:

The only suggestion for improvement that I can think of is, it would be great if the user databases were smaller so it took less time to upload and download. That's the only reason I don't use EPIM for my email; I don't want the database to get to be too big! With that said, I'n not a programmer and couldn't even begin to tell you how to reduce the database size.

Satisfied user.

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

EssentialPIM offered an interface close to the one I have used for nearly 30 years with an integration to a portable device that offers a comprehensive synchronization package. I make extensive use of linking related entries which makes finding what needs to be found much easier.

Nachteile:

It does not have a quote of the day feature, that I came to enjoy with the Franklin Planner. I still have the Franklin Planner software installed, so I can restart the module for the current day quote if desired.

My experience with EssentialPIM

5,0 letztes Jahr

Kommentare: I chose this software after a thorough review of everything offered on the market and I am convinced that I made a good selection. Customer service is taken very responsibly and the constant updates indicate a serious commitment to keep up to date and continuously improve the product.

Vorteile:

I liked everything about EssentialPIM as a complete organization and management program. I recently had the opportunity to use it as a kind of personal assistant in the task of renewing all the complex documentation of a company to qualify for Accreditation. Without the possibility of ordering so much information within the tree structure with its links to the cloud or to the hard drive that the Notes Module provides, I would not have made it.

Nachteile:

I don't get the impression that something is wrong.

EPIM Is my go to app

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

Everything in one application. Easy to use and the ability to sync with phone. Auto backups of the database. Not a day goes by where I don't use either the Windows app or the Android app. The low cost option for Lifetime support & upgrades. The support team release several updates a year with improvements & new features.

Nachteile:

No tables support in the Android app. I would love to have a relational database module solely because I use another app for that.

Its Called "Essential" for a reason

Vorteile:

This application is the "Swiss Army Knife" of all Personal Information Managers. I have had them all over the past years and this software covers all the bases. It is the best solution on the market at the best price point.

Nachteile:

I wish you could run multiple calendars and have them with color coded tabs.

EssentialPIM: your one stop shop to taking back control of your contacts and calendar

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Great support for an intuitive product that is consistently developed. A model software house

Vorteile:

Love the portable version I can have on a USB stick, which then syncs with my calendar and ensures that I have a single central consistent set of information. In this era of remote websites, its wonderful to be able to take back control and know that it is safe

Nachteile:

Mult-calendar support which I think is coming in a release shortly. This will allow me to bring my CalDAV and google calendars together

Essential Pim in y business - Keith Jones

Kommentare: The general program works well, it has areas that are not flexible enough and areas that work well, for the price I make do with what it offers.

Vorteile:

Essential has the ability to track all my email accounts in one place

Nachteile:

The lack of service and help with problems, it is all very basic preset help, no human contact and being able to talk one on one for help.

Best alternative for Microsoft Outlook

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall, I am very satisfied with EPIM for many years now.

Vorteile:

EPIM offers all the features of Outlook, but is easier and faster to install and less prone to errors. Also the backup and transfer to other computers is very easy. The handling is very easy. With the lifetime license there are also no follow-up costs.

Nachteile:

I miss a "transfer format" icon, because sometimes the format changes unintentionally to the standard "Times New Roman" format when writing e-mails. After some updates incoming mails are not displayed correctly (thin horizontal white lines appear).

Top notepad + task manager !!!

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Using it more than 2years already, and used to it. Very good helper in my daily life.

Vorteile:

Notes, really helpful, use it daily to store different kinds of information from simple notes, guides to full web pages & pdf documents. Tasks - using them to track project progress.

Nachteile:

Impossible to make a periodic backup to cloud server (like google, onedrive etc.) for whole DB file. There is a built in support for dropbox, but it's mechanism to save DB every time when you open/close app is very bad, coz it takes a lot of time to sync & upload my DB, coz its not a smallest one...

No frills Swiss pocket knife for personal information management.

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Sometimes you need a PIM that does _not_ synchronise in 20 different places, privacy, encryption. For this EssentialPIM does a great job as it gives you full control over what and what not you want to synchronise and where.

Vorteile:

Stable piece of software that does what it promises and without glitches. Also personal enough to listen to its clients and users. I have many different parts of the PIM I use in interactions, e.g. dates, notes, contacts and all integrates smoothly.

Nachteile:

The regular software update check makes it a tad slower in starting up sometimes. An acceptable bad side as it means that there's an update with new features and improvements.

My thoughts on EPIM

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Since retiring I use this mainly for this software for personal use. Daily appointments, scheduling, tasks, notes and now as a journal.

Vorteile:

Integration of Email, Calendar, Tasks and Notes in one location.

Nachteile:

Android phone application can use some revamp in the notes section and implementing a Email client would the icing on the cake.
