Ratings and Reviews
Extremely powerful, yet easy to use
It's not every day you stumble upon a program that has this much power yet at the same time, keeps the basics extremely simple to use. I've used dozens of different methods and apps over the years to manage lists, projects, and timelines. Typically, when a program is robust, it lacks in the ability to provide simple data entry. Or, it's just the opposite where an application is easy to use but has no advanced features when you need them. SheetPlanner solves that problem by being both extremely easy to perform data entry while at the same time, provides the depth necessary to do advanced planning. In the software world, this is one of the toughest nuts to crack, but they've done it here!!! What I love the most is the flexibility to include start and finish dates (or not). Sometimes you want a simple list to manage company goals or daily tasks. At other times it calls for a robust project management system and SheetPlanner is there for you as well! Do yourself a favor and read down the list of features here. It's packed with all the stuff you need and wished you always had. The free trial offered with this is a no-brainer, so you have nothing to lose on this one and so much to gain! 5 Stars!!!
Mac Project Planner for the rest of us
Unless you have been raised on Microsoft Project, a project planning app is going to give you a huge learning curve with many of the features being overkill for all but the most dedicated user. Omniplan and Concept Draw are more approachable than MS Project, but the learning curve is still there. Sheetplanner allows you to begin with a spreadsheet/outliner interface to get started. You can then start adding complexity as you need or want it. I'm an administrator in higher education, and have little need for many of the features in a full-blown project management app. As a result, I went without for a decade. Sheetplanner is a perfect mix of ease of use and functionality that lets you get started at the ground floor, and then lets you add features as you see fit. I would encourage anyone who wants to use project management but cannot spare a load of learning how to navigate and use a monster project manager. It likely has more than enough features for your project.
Flexible, powerful, and easy to use!
I’m so glad I found SheetPlanner! It provides a very useful overview of my projects and lets me see them as both an outline and a timeline in a way that is flexible, powerful, and easy to use.
While I’ve used a to-do manager for years, until now I hadn’t found a project management system that was easy enough to use regularly. While I’m continuing to use a task manager, I use SheetPlanner all the time to review my overall workflow and make sure that I’m staying on top of all my projects. As other reviewers have noted, SheetPlanner is flexible and much easier to use than full-blown project managers while still having all the features I need.
In addition, the developer is super responsive—I’ve already emailed back and forth with him a couple of times about upcoming features.
