Signing-up for Vitalist is easy. For the free version, simply create a username and password. There is no software to install because you are accessing the software on Vitalist's server.
The next step is to setup your "Vitalist Inbox." (See a screen shot at the left.) This simply entails creating a pin number that will attach to your user name to create a Vitalist email address. Mail sent to the Vitalist email address goes directly to your Vitalist Inbox.
Why would you need another inbox? The Vitalist Inbox provides a central location to send any to-dos or notes that you think of during the day. This is a streamlined way to send information to the Vitalist system quickly. You have an opportunity to formalize the entry later. Use a regular email account (it does not have to be your own), Twitter or Voice-to-Text services to send items to your Vitalist Inbox. Each entry becomes an action item.
You may also enter action items directly into the system, which is a good idea when you first begin. Entry is easy and allows the user to associate a context (i.e., errand, computer, phone call, etc.), project name, contact, due date, estimated completion time (i.e., 15 minutes, 1 hours, etc.) and priority with each action item.
