The ultimate planning tool

Being The expert in time management, Quo Vadis has come up with its own planning tools to provide the most advanced time management app. Some of its features are borrowed from the paper diaries and optimized for a digital use, like the Top priority (Dominante), the Macro Planning and Planorizon views... Others were invented specifically for Quo Vadis App (Day look, Day and Week dashboards, my tasks...)

  • You can reorganise the display order of your views and your favourite views.
