    ...to carry a franklin covey planner along with a treo? I keep appts in the treo, but the digital nature of the palm leaves me with no "paper trail" which I like. but I am having trouble reconciling carrying a big ol binder around for appts and todos.

    any opinions would be appreciated

    Hi eldiablo!

    What do you mean by a paper trail? Franklin covey sells a tailored version of Outlook for the PC which would sync with the Treo. You could "print off" binder pages at day's end for the historical record of that day on paper.

    Or if you speak of appointments and tasks that have been "moved" forward: you could type "moved to xx/xx/xx" on the original date and then copy the appointment/task to the new date . . . . .

    Are either of these two situations your concern?

    Cheers, Perry.

    I got rid of my FP in 1996 when I bought my first Palm Pilot and never turned back. I carried a simple 1/4" thick composition pad/lab book for taking notes and sync'd frequently with both work and home PC's. I would transfer some important notes to the Palm for easy access when needed.

    Exactly! 1996!

    Gave up my binder for the Pilot, could not stand rewriting notes, appointments and tasks -- due to re-prioritization of upper management. With the Palm -- edit, re-date and done.

    1996 was a very good year for those of us that gave up carrying all that stuff!

    I too gave up my Franklin Planner but I also tossed the Franklin Software several years ago-nothing but trouble and tech support's answer was always "totally uninstall and reinstall". Totally uninstalling the software was two pages of instructions.

    Do yourself a favor and toss them both. I use the Palm Desktop and it is straight forward, simple, functional and has never given me any trouble.

    Hi TurboTiger

    Again!! Exactly the same scenario, eventually dumped the Franklin Planning Software for the Palm Desktop. However, I have noticed recently that what is on display at the Franklin Covey stores now appears to be Outlook . . . . with just their version of Task List? This might be a little more stable and less buggy than what we went through. . . . .

    Cheers, Perry.

    I don't want to use a paper planner this year either I use datebook6 and was wondering if there is a way that I can print out the pages as a reference and because I don't have total confidence in electronic only yes (Just got a new Treo and I have made some major mistakes that almost cost me all my data ?

    How do others handle this? any info would be helpful.

    I am using the PlanPlus for Outlook and really like it. I need my prioritized tasks and weekly planning. Actually, it is the mission, goals and weekly planning tool that keep me with the Franklin Covey software. I could replicate the prioritization of tasks in outlook, but thus far have not found a way to do the mission, goals and weekly planning to my liking without PlanPlus. Anyone else have another method? I have had no significant technical issues with PlanPlus for Outlook. Actually, my only issue lies in dealing with recurring tasks and syncing between my home computer, Treo and work computer (Outlook deals with them, but the TaskList on the Treo does not and so the recurrance is lost when I overwrite the desktop with the handheld). Was thinking of replacing the handheld apps with KeySuite, anybody use this? Don't know if it would all sync correctly, but thought I might give it a try. May take a look at DateBook 6 too.

    To the original question, gave up the binder when I got my Treo. Found I wasn't really using the paper for anything with my Prism, but did not want to carry it on my hip and found grafiti clumsy for a few things. With the keyboard and a few third party apps, haven't needed paper forms for a copule years. At least for me, once I took the jump to abandoning the binder, would never, ever go back.

    It's already out in Beta testing. It's a great program. I just wish there was a desktop component to it.

    I have tried to leave PlanPlus for outlook a dozen times, even after Covey Support told me that the Treo sucked and I shouldn't have bought it to work with their software, but I keep coming back to it, the new version works great and they finally came out with a treo 650 fix to help it sync faster.

    I don't print the pages sinc I have a tablet PC and if I needed to I could use it but the treo does all I need.

    some great ideas here. thanks to all.. the "paper trail" I was talking about was the ability to have a record of what I do every day, work and otherwise. I hate that 1 software error will erase any record of what's been done over the course of a given year/years. I always seem to come back to the planner. the redundancys my issue. and I'm NOT getting rid of the treo...

    Many of us have backup redundancy processes. First there's hotsyncing and then BackupMan or BackupBuddy to an SD card. I have BackupMan set to do its thing at 3 am each morning. So my entire Treo backup is never more than 24 hours old.

    Good Luck.

    PlanPlus has a daily record of events, that syncs to the Outlook Journal, so you can take notes through out the day and then print them off if needed.
