Ideal Week is a free online week planner to plan your week with goals, to-dos, etc. This website makes it very easy and convenient for you to plan the tasks of a week by creating goals and adding them to the weekly calendar. You can add as many goals as you want and then add to-do tasks, conditions, estimations, and due date to the goals. Apart from that, it also allows you to attach files like images, documents, etc. to each goal. You can also allot a date and time by dragging and dropping the goals on the weekly calendar (on specific date and time interval).
To organize and manage your goals in a better way, you can also create custom categories and add goals to them. Another useful feature of this online week planner is “Week in Review”, which shows reports and statistics of completed goals, new goals, ongoing goals, etc.
There are many other day planner software available which are pretty good for planning daily tasks. But, if you would like to plan your tasks for an entire week, then using “Ideal Week” is probably one of the best options for you.
