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 4
- Overhauled the UI for macOS 11 Big Sur. (Mojave and Catalina are still supported, however.)
- Added support for Apple Silicon.
- Fixed an issue where DataOrganizer would occasionally crash at startup.
- Some internal changes were made that will help prevent reordered items (form rows and fields, etc.) from appearing out of order.
- Fixed an issue where a library could be listed in the Recently Deleted section if a field was moved to another row and the field was previously the only field in its row. (Its appearance in Recently Deleted was due to the fact that a field-less row was added to Recently Deleted. This change is merely cosmetic and functionality has otherwise not changed).
- 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 Dark Mode.
Minimum System Requirements
DataOrganizer requires macOS 10.14 Mojave or later.
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.
