Process

3.0.13
25 February 2010

Organize your ideas and projects.

Overview

Process gives users the freedom necessary to be creative and the flexible framework needed to get things done. All within one versatile window, users can brainstorm, organize, schedule, plan, coordinate, collaborate, and do the work.

The Process 3 all-in-one-window interface was kept clean, simple and intuitive to maximize speed, convenience and flexibility. Beneath the utilitarian toolbar you find five distinct but functionally-interlocked panes that give you full control over all your projects and all the elements needed to accomplish each phase.

Features:

  • Smart Projects: Does for your tasks what Smart Playlists did for your tunes. Based on the search criteria that you define, your Smart Projects will give you the answers you want and keep them up to date through the power of Spotlight technology.
  • Resources: Websites, text documents, photos, movies, music, applications, whatever-as many resources as you need can be linked or attached to each of your project outline items. Every time you click on a particular item, the icons of all the resources that you have harnessed to it will appear instantly in the Source panel which strategically separates your project item listing from the lower Notes/Source View pane where you can display resources and do your work.
  • Collaboration: Process 3 gives you Shared Project capability. Simply select the target project and choose File menu>Share. Presto! Your project-and all its resources-are instantly shared with all the Macs on your network and clearly identified with a small shared icon. Everyone on the network can collaborate on the project and even Source documents.
  • Archive, Backup, Calendar: Now you can back up your entire Process database to .Mac. Process\'s new core engine assures seamless synchronization with iCal calendar start dates, due dates and alarms. Moreover Process 3 allows you to keep your completed items and to work or just to pass it over again in the future. Items labeled as "done" will automatically be placed in the Archive folder.

To all intents and purposes the software is dead. Removed from the Mac App Store, all mention of it erased from the devs website. No mention of why it's been abandoned. It was a promising little piece of software. Thank goodness I didn't pay more than a couple of quid for it in a sale. I'd be fuming if I'd paid full price for abandonware barely a year since it went on sale, and not opened out to the public, just deleted. Quite shameful of the devs really and will stop me investing in any further apps from them

This is odd. I searched on MU using "Process" and got no hits for this page. I only discovered it with a separate Google search. July 2017 and Process is still dead and surprisingly, it still runs. I am just doing some housecleaning on one of my drives and, wow, I misses this app. Jumsoft was very bad in abandoning all their products like they did with no warning or communication so I am not imagining a rebirth. I am posting to ask if anyone stumbles across this, if anything can do what Process did? It was a great research tool. I used it to take a topic/idea. Then I could add notes. Active URL links, documents to a bar above the window below it. It was a great way to organize my thoughts, save or bookmark links related to an idea. I know there are other organizing tools for outlines but as far as I know, those are one idea per item. Process allowed me to put many items with one idea. I was wondering if something like Tinderbox might be tweaked to do something like this? I have never used it but, I would love to get the functionality back I had in Process. The idea in Process reminds a bit of Devonthink although Devonthink is far more robust. DT is also more dependent on indexing or importing what you already have so I am not sure it is a stand alone organization tool like Process was. And there is that little problem with Devonthink - their customer service totally sucks. We already know with Jumsoft that poor customer service is not a good thing.

I agree that Process is a great program, and I still use it. There are a number of other outliners that allow for adding notes for an outline entry. OmniOutliner would be one example. But certainly Tinderbox is the most powerful option. It is my go-to program that I use every day. It's not for the faint of heart, but once you get the hang of it, it's truly wonderful.

Agree. I got it for free during a MacUpdate promotion in December 2010 so I can't really say I'm a paying customer, but at least they could have left a page on their website to explain why they stopped supporting it.

Probably Jumsoft wants to focus on their software "Money" and their templates collections. Seems they have stopped development on all the other apps. I have bought their app "Relationship" six month ago for half the price (still 20$) and now it's abandonware. While I am happy with their work with "Money", I agree they should have communicated this to their customers.

I just now went to check out Process after 4 years. I've had other tools and did not buy the bundle for that app. MacUpdate Desktop couldn't download it. Went to web site, as already mentioned, no trace of this at all. OK, maybe 3+ years is a long time to keep an undeveloped program around. Yet many other software developers archive discontinued versions of their apps. If it did what I required I would have used it understanding it's unsupported. Now I won't trust any program from this company. Money looks like a good app. But cut and run is not a good way to retire a product, and how can I trust they won't do it again, even with the apparent success of money. (yeah I know, these days how can you trust any app developer is going to be around)

Process is really great piece of software. It's easy and functional app. It's sad to see that Jumsoft is not interested in the development of this app. Now they are working under Bill Engine and Money. It's cool apps but Process too, I think. For this version Process often lagging with big number of tasks, haven't normal syncing between computers, haven't ios versions for iPhone and iPad. I'd like to see all these features, but all makes it clear that it can be only in my fantasies. There's no information about any processes with Process...

I fail to see the real interest of this software in fonrt of its competitors. Ok it's simple enough to use. But it's not very communicative, not very pretty, not very rich in options. As a light To do manager, I prefer Things by large. But if it's free and if you don't already have one, take this.

I think that Process is a very good application, no doubt about it. I do agree, though, that for an application to be taken seriously, it must have a companion app for the iPhone, or at least for the iPad. It has excellent exporting options, and is compatible with MobileMe, something that is very important for several Mac users out there. While it is less known and probably not as preferred as Cultured Code's Things, it is a simple and powerful tool. The free license was, without a doubt, a very good move on Jumsoft's part. I appreciate the different text styles and the labels features. All in all, this is a cheaper product than OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, and Things, yet it is not lacking much. I strongly encourage that people take advantage of the free serial number giveaways, even if that means making a new Twitter account.

@Pneshati, You said: "All in all, this is a cheaper product than OmniFocus, OmniGraffle, and Things, yet it is not lacking much." While I have not used Things, Process has little in common with OmniGraffle and compared to OmniFocus it feels like a toy. OmniFocus evolved from OmniOutliner, which is more comparable to Process. Process is indeed "lacking much." For example, adequate URL and email address support, cloning, smart dates (e.g., tomorrow, next Tuesday, next week), consistent data entering (i.e., you can enter priority directly in its column, but can't enter dates that way), etc. It also has some bugs. For example, after deleting an imported project I had to restart Process in order for the actual items to disappear. Putting a check-mark into all sub-items will move the item and sub-items to the Archive. Un-checking a sub-item will return the item and sub-items to the Projects (as expected), but it will leave the project under Archives as well. For those who don't mind a bit of a learning curve, NeO is a superior product. It lacks a "pretty" interface, but it's relatively easy to create great looking documents, with a choice of fonts, colors (for font and background), etc. Using Styles makes formatting a breeze.

Best steer clear of this one; both the product and the developer that is. Like other commenters below I found several significant bugs and unfinished sections/features in this product too late ... yes, I had already paid for it. Not to worry (I thought) the developers web site certainly seemed professional and the product had been included in a promotional bundle so I assumed they must also be reputable by someones reckoning; but I was oh so very wrong. After a very polite email to the developer pointing out several of the bugs and faults, and also including some feature suggestions, I still haven't even been acknowledged. I sent that email just over 6 months ago. Oh I'm sure if the developer reads this s/he will make some promise about an imminent update, just like the one made below regarding the User Manual, I can tell you it never happened. The shame of it all is that the foundation of a truly great little App was all there and quite apparent; too bad the developer just 'walks away' from his paying customers. Especially those of us who are busy IT consultants and are in the position where we can choose to expose their products to our client base/s ... or NOT.

Although I do understand your disappointment regarding the lack of reactivity from the developers, I think you are a little rough in your comments. Developing a stable and functional app is a very tedious job, adding features is complicated sometimes, and finding bugs is not as easy as it seems... it truly is hard to satisfy everyone at the same time! Why didn't you simply keep emailing them until you got a reply or maybe ask for a refund, instead of bashing their work publicly? Maybe you should have used the 15-day trial first...
