    PalmForce is a Personal Digital Assistant PDA organizing application that allows the users to manage their daily activity and keep important data that they need. PalmForce is the main product to be developed in this project, which is one of the thesis titles proposed this year in Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, University Malaya. Our group, which consists of 4 student will be required to work on different modules on this application and integrate these modules later on. All the final year degree students in this in institution are require d to finish their final year project to graduate from the university. PalmForce is divided into 4 modules , which are the personal organizer, financial organizer, educational organizer, and health organizer. Each of us will develop the different modules and integrate the product at the end stage, as mentioned earlier. After discussing within ourselves , we divided the modules to each of us. I will be working on the Personal Organizing tools modules, thus this documentation would consist mainly the information about the personal organizer. In chapter 1 the objectives and overview of the Personal Organizer are being discussed . The overall function that is provided by this application is presented, together with the project scope as well. To develop this project properly, a lot of information and reference are needed. Thus research had been carried out in several aspect within this field, and the summary of the research can be found in Chapter 2. To finish this project on time and learn how is the actual software development process goes on, a. methodology is chosen as a guide throughout the project. The methodology chosen is the prototyping methodology. A prototype is a mock of the desired system that excludes some of the major function of the system. It is build to allow user to give their opinion on the product, thus allow the developers to change their product according to the users' needs. The introduction of this development module and the reason why it is chosen can be found on Chapter 3. The functional requirements and the environment chosen to build this system are being discussed in Chapter 4. The result from the survey that is carried out is summarized here, and with this information, the functional requirements and non-functional requirements are determined. Chapter 5 gives a brief introduction to the basic architecture of the system . The data flow diagram and some screenshot from the prototype are presented here. Chapter 6 discussed briefly the implementation of this module. This Chapter gives description about how the tools and developing environment are set up before the real coding take place. It also gives the method used to do coding. Chapter 7 is a summary of the testing done on the system. It contains the method used to test the system and the result of these test. Finally Chapter 8, which is system evaluation, gives the information about how evaluation is done on the system. The information included here are the strength of the system, the weak point and problem face, and future enhancement for the system.
