A note from Tom, Founder of Tom's Planner
Like you, I was caught in between spreadsheets and fancy project management software…
It got to a point where I couldn’t keep up in Excel. Manually creating a timeline and coloring individual cells was tedious. I lacked a clear overview of what everyone was working on. My spreadsheets were always outdated. And when I had to make changes to the schedule – chaos.
So I tried MS Project, which came with its own challenges…
The learning curve was steep (the 2016 MS Project manual has 516 pages!). It was impossible to get my team to look at and contribute to my project plans. I was fighting against the software whenever I tried to plan projects my way. And the cost… well you know all about that already.
So in 2009, I created Tom’s Planner — the middle ground that was missing…
If you’re planning something less complex than a mission to Mars, you’ll find what you’re looking for in Tom’s Planner.
Everything is drag and drop, point and click. It’s so easy to use that you can have a professional-looking Gantt chart up today.
You can break the rules. Want to put related tasks on the same row so your chart doesn’t stretch vertically to infinity? Done. Want to use a Gantt chart to track resources? You can do that, too.
And zooming in and out of projects is simple. Zoom out to see milestones for the year, then immediately zoom in to see what Sally in Engineering is working on today.
If you’re looking for something in between spreadsheets and expensive project management software – you’ve found it.
