"I've tried every To Do List on the market and found the To Do List by XLAutomation ticks all the boxes for me.

 

It let's me arrange my different streams of activity at work and home into the same workbook and then quickly and easily see what remains to be actioned and where I should next focus.

 

Since starting with To Do List I have improved my efficiency, I no longer worry about the unorganised list of things I need to get done. To Do List has that sorted and I can rely on it letting me know what to do next."

"To Do List was recommended to me by someone at school, I was so busy at work and home running between marking student papers, taking the kids to and from various sporting events and other activities. I never seemed to have any time for myself.

 

With To Do List I was able to organise the things that needed to get done on specific days of the week at times when I would not be distracted. This was the key for me as it let me focus on the activity at the right time.

 

I would recommend To Do List for anyone trying to get organised, it helped me."
