if not it's ok, just have to know, looking everywhere

bare minimal needs -- if im using for 'dated/timed items'

at a specific, shows me a sound notification on chrome or somewhere on the screen

forever until i turn it off

need to be able to repeat an action every day (a plus for every 1 or 3 hours, etc.)

bare minimal needs -- if im using for 'todos'

has an easy way to place 'rank/importance' on things as i add them

needs to auto-sorts the list by rank/importance -- has to be automatic or what's the point?

only the above matters, everything else is irrelevant

Those are not standard Thunderbird functions. You might look at an extension like ReminderFox to see if that would meet your needs.

You can use either the Lightning or ReminderFox calendar add-ons to create dated/timed items that have an alarm. Alarms can be configured to be either a popup or a sound. You can configure them to repeat daily. I don't know if Lightning lets you repeat it more often than that (I'm using ReminderFox). I'm used to to-do lists being sorted by date. I don't know if Lightning lets you auto-sort by rank/importance.

http://www.reminderfox.org/documentation/ (ReminderFox documentation)
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/us ... dar-add-on (Lightning Knowledge Base articles, there is no on-line documentation that I'm aware of)

Its also possible to use the Google Calendar in a tab in Thunderbird (rather than with a browser) using the Google calendar tab add-on. There are also add-ons such as Thundertabs that let you open any web app in a tab in Thunderbird.

Moved from the Thunderbird Support forum to the Calendar forum as that is where the Lightning experts are.
