Debrief Notes 2.3, by Idealign, LLC is a program I found when I was looking for a good way to make notes during the course of each day. I used to use a different program and it seemed like no program I found did the trick. Then I found Debrief Notes. I bought it and now I'm telling you about it. This product is all about the notes. It has this great feature called Daily Notepad where it automatically creates a new note each day. That's exactly what I was looking for, but there's more. You can work with notes from different perspectives in Notepad, Folders, or Calendar. For example, if you go into Calendar mode you can click on a date and then see your notes for that day. You can go into Folders and create different folders for different things. I have folders for SIAF, Tucows, Personal, and so on. So, if you create a note within a certain folder, that's where you view it. You can look at your notes based on date, subject, folder, and so on. Debrief Notes utilizes Rich Text Format so you can really spruce up your notes. In addition, you can indicate that certain notes "need attention" or that others are "favorites." You can also show that a note is a "Work In Progress". I find these things useful because often I'm working on multiple things at once. Debrief Notes has another cool feature called a "Reference." What this does is let you view (or reference) one note while you're typing in another note. The note that's the reference is opened in read-only mode so you can't accidentally type your new news into it. Slick.
Debrief Notes is really an impressive program with all that it can do and I realized that I couldn't adequately cover it in the scope of my Picks. So, stay tuned and I'll be doing a full article on Debrief Notes so you can see all the things it can be used for. I like it so much that it's not only a Pick, but I'm also making it a Dr. File Finder Favorite and there aren't very many of those. Take a look for yourself and be watching for an in-depth review of Debrief Notes.
