FranklinCovey's OnePlace is a software program that helps you become more productive by electronically organizing information on your PC. It helps you quickly find needed information in your OutLook e-mail, word processing documents, schedules, contact lists or on-line Web sites.
By integrating this feature into a single application, OnePlace makes "queries" for this information easier since it can find information from multiple sources. It is compatible with the data created by the following applications:
OutLook 97, 98, and 2000
OutLook Express 5.x
AOL 4.x and above
Microsoft Word for Windows 6.0 and above
Microsoft Works 4.x and above
Microsoft Windows Write
Novell PerfectWorks 2.0 word processor
WordPerfect 6.0 and above
PFS Professional Write Plus
Chart 2.x and above
Novell PerfectWorks 2.0 spreadsheet
Microsoft PowerPoint 7.0 and above
Adobe Acrobat up to 4.05
Novell PerfectWorks 2.0 draw
OnePlace can also read RTF (Rich Text Format) data as well, giving you one more reason to store your documents in this wonderful, virus-safe format. OnePlace can also index your Windows BMP graphics as well as GIF and JPEG images.
Running on top of Microsoft OutLook, OnePlace scans your most recent items during the initial installation. The rest of your hard drive is then cross-referenced in the background, while you work. Once this is completed, you are then able to see all your information within FranklinCovey OnePlace.
FranklinCovey OnePlace requires:
Windows 98, ME, 2000, or NT service Pack 3.0+ (Unfortunately, Windows 95 is not supported)
Pentium II 300 MHz or higher
64 MB or more RAM (128 MB for using Windows 2000)
SVGA display with 16-bit high color or greater -- 800 x 600 minimum
50 to 100 MB of hard disk space
Internet connectivity is recommended
