Have you considered Google Tasks? I've read it's now integrated with Google Calendar. Never used it however.

Btw are you sure you can't do what you want with Things? It sounds almost as though you are searching for the One True Perfect Piece of Software that will somehow make securing permissions less of a soul-crushingly tedious and frustrating business than it always inevitably is. Whereas you might just have to grit your teeth and get on with it with whatever tools are available.

Item description, file identifier, location in manuscript
Rights holder identified?
Rights holder contacted?
Permission received/denied/offered pending fee?
Manuscript updated with appropriate credit?
Item removed if permission not received?
Then I'd track the actual steps toward each of those milestones in my general task manager. That way I'd have a summary status whenever I needed it, but wouldn't clutter the master list with stuff like "Call John Q. Photographer AGAIN--we've been missing each other for a solid week."
As an added bonus, spreadsheets are easy to share, but To Do lists aren't. Keep status and tasks separate, and each person can use whatever system they like for their own tasks.
