    It would be great if a myTask item could launch another program, especially Jot+. It would be an even better enhancement if it could launch Jot+ at a particular note.

    Thanks,

    Each task has a field where you can enter a hyperlink (eg a website) or a file/folder name to associate with that task. The you can use the Task|Run File command to launch/open the task’s link/file.

    Recent versions of Jot+ Notes do support the ability to jump to a particular notefile/note via the command line, but it’s not (currently) documented in the help file (it is really intended for internal use).

    Thanks for the additional info.

    However, I’m not sure it’s working as I expected. I put the file jots+.exe and path in the File/URL and set a timer for that task but Jots+ doesn’t start. It does by selecting Run File. I was looking for Jots+ to start at the time I had myTasks set to. Is that possible.

    I do see a comment in the Help about “-note” on the command line but I can’t get it to work even from a desktop icon. Can you point me to the correct way a command line should be arranged?

    Thanks for your help,

    Indirectly, YES. Windows comes with a “scheduled tasks” utility (on XP, it’s located at All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Scheduled Tasks; not sure where it is on Vista). This utility allows you to run a particular application (eg Jot+ Notes) on a schedule or at a particular time.

    I’ll post a complete reference later today.
