DataOrganizer is a personal database for macOS. While professional database software may be expensive and complex, DataOrganizer aims not only to be affordable and easy to use, but perhaps even fun.
What’s new in DataOrganizer 3
DataOrganizer 3 comes with sorting options for List View, improved print support, a Geolocation Field, embedded maps in Address and Geolocation Fields, and field row resizing.
- Added the ability to change how cards are arranged when in List View. Click the “Sort by” button at the top of the cards list, then choose from “Title”, “Date Created”, and “Date Modified”. The “Sort by” button also supports both ascending and descending lists. (Search also has received a “Sort by” button.)
- Overhauled print support. Choose between three print styles: Forms, Table, and Photo Gallery. All cards can now be printed in a library/stack or simply the selected cards.
- Added a Geolocation Field. The Bento importer has been updated to import Location Fields from Bento databases.
- Added a “Show more details” option for the Address and the Geolocation Fields. When enabled, these fields can now display a map in the form. (See Info popover > Show more details.)
- Added drag-and-drop support to the search list. Cards can now be dragged into a stack in the source list directly from search.
- Added the ability to delete cards directly from the search list. Selected cards in search can now be deleted by pressing delete.
- Imports existing data from Bento 4, BayCard (DataOrganizer's predecessor), CSV (Comma Separated Values), and TSV (Tab Separated Values)
- Libraries and stacks can be viewed using three different views: List, Table, and Gallery.
- A List View reminiscent of the list views featured in Notes and Mail.
- A Table View resembles a spreadsheet and displays each field in a separate column. The Table View also includes a footer that, if applicable, can display the count, minimum, maximum, sum, or average of a field’s values.
- A Gallery View lists all of the images located in the media fields of the selected library or stack.
- Includes eight ready-made templates: Clients, Inventory, Issues, Journal, Membership List, Party Planner, Recipes, and Serial Numbers.
- Allows for further organization of your libraries into “sub-groups” using stacks and smart stacks. (A stack is similar to a playlist in iTunes, while a smart stack is criteria-based and is similar to a smart playlist.)
- Includes over 20 field types. They consist of:
- Basic fields, such as: Text, Multi-Line Comment, Tags, Choice, Date, Duration, URL, Email, Phone Number, Address, Check Box, Number, Currency, and Star Rating.
- Four fields that link to macOS's built-in databases: Contacts, Calendar Events, Files, Mail Messages.
- A Media List Field that stores photos.
- A Geolocation Field that is used to track locations (latitude and longitude).
- A Relationship Field allows for one library to link to another library.
- Supports Mojave’s Dark Mode.
DataOrganizer is a subscription-based app and is available as a free download in the Mac App Store. It can be tried out for 14 days with no restrictions. After that time, DataOrganizer requires either a monthly ($2/mo) or an annual ($20/yr) subscription.
Unlike most subscription-based apps on the App Store, a paid subscription plan does not automatically begin upon completion of a free trial. At the conclusion of a trial, DataOrganizer simply displays a subscription plan chooser.
