A new approach to GANTT Charts
Our goal was to make Tom's Planner as intuitive as possible. That's why we've chosen a new approach to project planning and creating Gantt Charts. Tom's Planner enables you to work directly in the Gantt Chart instead of only being a viewing option like in most project planning software.
It's simplicity and ease of use makes Tom's Planner the ideal starting point for virtually every project and every person - from project managers and event managers to busy soccer moms or family reunion organizers. You can import Excel and MS Project files for a flying start.
The magic is in the right click. For example: to insert a new period in your project plan, a context menu will open when you right click your mouse. You can then select the option 'insert a new period' and choose a color.
The same applies for a context menu that will appear when you right click on the frame that displays activities and groups.
Above the grid you will find the toolbar. This toolbar includes all of the actions you can do on your schedule. For example, you can export your project plan to MS Project, add or remove a logo or show/hide the legend..
You can store, share and manage your schedules online. Toms Planner offers you an easy and secure way to share and collaborate on charts with your clients or other people in your team.
You can collaborate on your schedules with your team or publish the schedule online and add it to your website or intranet using an iframe. You can give others the right to edit or the right to view only for every schedule you stored online.
Do you want to incorporate your project plan into a report? Simply click on "export to image" and your entire project plan will be saved as an image file that can then be included in for example, Word or Excel documents. You can also mail it to others, store it within your project archive, put it on your intranet or include it within any other project management tool you are currently using.
You can keep your project plan up to date by easily clicking on tasks or activities and dragging them to a different location. You can also drag with your mouse over your Gantt Chart to select multiple tasks at once. This makes it possible to create temporary dependencies between different elements in your Gantt Chart.
