Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
We use LiquidPlanner as the project organizer where we structure each project and the specific tasks that need to be completed by the various teams. LiquidPlanner helps us to organize all of the small details and tasks that need to be taken care of in a specific order for the products we make to be completed correctly. We have a design team, development team and a writing team that all have to coordinate their efforts to create the marketing materials we produce. LiquidPlanner helps us coordinate where everyone is at with their specific tasks and allows us to see what still needs to be done. We are much more organized because we have a clear "map" of what work has happened and what work still needs to happen on a project. LiquidPlanner is something we use daily and something we need to keep our projects moving between teams.
- LiquidPlanner lets you organize to an insane degree, you can create packages, folders, packages, sub-packages and tasks and even more things to organize projects.
- LiquidPlanner allows you to set up dependent actions meaning a task can be assigned to someone but they won't see it until a task the needs to be done first is marked as done. This allows you to keep things in order so tasks don't get out of order of when they need to be completed.
- LiquidPlanner lets you assign tasks with a certain amount of hours it's expected to take. This is super helpful because it helps you keep track of how much you've assigned a team or specific person so you don't assign them more than then could do in a week. We are able to track how many hours tasks take and to make sure everyone has a healthy work load.
- One thing that can be frustrating with LiquidPlanner is the search function. The search area will populate with results, but once you click on a task, project or folder, it won't let you expand the item if there is more underneath it. This is frustrating because sometimes you want to see what is included in a project, but you have to search and then clear the search bar before it lets you look more into something.
- LiquidPlanner is so expansive and has so much potential that is can be overwhelming to a new user or to someone who doesn't use it often. This is hard because it take a lot of training to get someone familiar with the software-- the up side it that once they are familiar with it, it is really helpful to use.
- Sometimes the software can get glitchy and jump around or kick you out of an active task you are editing. This is frustrating if you haven't saved your work because it will lose all the work you've added. I've seen this improve over the last few years I've used the software, but it comes up every now and again.
LiquidPlanner is amazing for any time of project management scenario where you have to manage several teams and details. Running a project through LiquidPlanner is so easy because it lets you break down the project into sections and folders and small tasks that you can assign to specific people. With a small to medium size team-- LiquidPlanner is amazing for organizing and tracking details. If you have a huge team or not a ton of details to track LiquidPlanner might not be right for you because it is a software that requires some good training to learn and has tons of functions that can be utilized so it seems better suited to be used by a smaller group looking to coordinate or for people who have lots of details that can be difficult to track.
Extremely positive experience. The LiquidPlanner project management tool allows me and my work team to monitor the status of our goals at a high level, keeping us informed about the progress of projects since it offers certain management capabilities that make collaboration in projects more efficient and precise.
- GANTT charts.
- Multiple integrations.
- Creation of schedules based on project priorities.
- Powerful functions oriented to task management and team collaboration.
- It is difficult to visualize projects through a mobile phone.
- The user interface is not attractive.
- The "search" function is not that powerful, it needs to be improved.
LiquidPlanner is a great software that helps teams in any field manage project workflow by providing the means to visualize processes from start to finish. In addition, LiquidPlanner can be accessed online and from anywhere.
LiquidPlanner is a great and recommendable application for collaboration. I use it daily and I like how it allows me to collaborate with other staff easily and efficiently. I like the ability to track time spent on every project and also it allows me to create and assign new tasks to my teams. It has a simple and user-friendly interface, which makes it easy to use and manage.
- Integration with Dropbox, Box, and Google Drive.
- LiquidPlanner is a little bit difficult to use on phone.
- Reporting can be difficult to hack.
- Task allocation and tracking.
- Reports cannot be exported in PDF format.
LiquidPlanner is suitable for various project management needs. It enables time estimating to understand projects' duration, which feeds into our budget plans. The application is user friendly, intuitive, and easy to manage. It allows us to collaborate easily and efficiently on projects and track time spent on every project.
We use Liquid Planner to manage the in-house projects. The tool is very good for what it is designed to do. It has the greatest asset of set reporting information that allows for customization to meet our needs. It has done this job for us very well. The support provided has been timely and effective. LiquidPlanner helped with capacity planning, tracking and utilization. The dashboard was quite simple and intuitive and made our collaboration fun
- Ease of use
- Great Tech support
- Dynamic scheduling of work
- Reports can be exported in CSV format
- Integration with Drive ,Dropbox
- Need a training to use it effectively
- Little expensive
- Its helpful only for Project Management
- Reports can't be exported in PDF
- accessing LP on mobile is tiresome
- Some link mostly external doesn't open
Its good for small team and where you have ample time to get started . Due to cost can't used can be used only for customersManages a huge amount of information related to projects and tasks.Offers different views and search options to get the information you're looking for.Estimation and time tracking work well and help keep everyone on the same page.
LiquidPlanner is fantastic for tracking projects, especially when you are working in collaboration with a team. I can follow, in my busy schedule, just how far I am with each project to its deadline. I can also follow what everyone else is doing. This helps manage the workflow for everyone, and ensures client deadlines are met.
- Provides free training academy
- Simple user interface
- Project tracking
- If you have multiple projects running, you need to be meticulous in providing details of each project, otherwise it won't track well
If your business has many projects running and you want to stay on top of things, LiquidPlanner will be very useful. If you also like having an open overview of what is happening with each project in the business, then this tool will give you a good picture of every project as it gets completed by your team.
We used LiquidPlanner for the scheduling of our different projects, as well as organizing the work load (specially through the use of gantt charts) that allowed better time management for the different teams, as well as helping to visualize which tasks had a higher importance and improving in this way the organization within our business.
- Allows to organize different tasks within the organization, so that every team in our business is clear on what to do.
- It breaks down tasks and simplify activities in a way is easy for everyone to understand.
- Accurately estimates dates to know when the work will be done.
- Board views divided and organized by priority and importance.
- Difficult to use in phone
- Reporting can be difficult, for example, reports can't be exported in pdf yet
- Can be a bit difficult to understand and use at first
It is very helpful for time management and organization, as it allows work to be categorized by priority, something that allows our business to focus on what is important first, improving productivity. It is well suited for task management and integration, specially when working with larger files. It has easy exportation, making the information communication among the team so much easier. Each team member in the company gets a personalized board with its own workload, tasks and objectives, something that we consider very valuable as every individual gets to know their own tasks. It is not very appropriate for design development, as it is rather a planning tool.
Thanks to LiquidPlanner we can create, manage and carry out absolute control of the company's projects and tasks. It can be easily integrated with various calendars, with Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box. In our case, we use it with Zapier to add the appropriate applications to integrate. Because we handle all the basic tasks and projects for the company, for unlimited general storage we use the BOX integration to manage large files.
- Intuitive UX/UI.
- Integration with Google Drive, Dropbox, and Box.
- Reports, customized with the ability to export them as CSV files.
- Reports cannot be exported in PDF format.
LiquidPlanner is the ideal software to handle all the projects and all the basic tasks of any company. This software streamlines the process of our work, provides almost unlimited report customization options, generated reports that can be saved for future use. In conclusion, LiquidPlanner offers a wide range of features that are sure to help you make the project management process easy and effective.
We use it for project tracking in terms of understanding how resources are being utilised and what capacity is remaining to allocate. Also used to track project tasks all in one place and pipeline projects. We like how the tool is collaborative to enable staff to input information and give management a shared understanding of project progress.
- Reporting feature with multiple views of resources.
- Reminder function.
- Visualisation of project data.
- Task allocation and tracking.
- Difficult to use on a phone.
- Interface is busy and not easy to navigate.
- Reporting can be difficult to hack.
The tool is well suited for various project management needs. For example, the tool enables time estimating to understand project duration which feeds into our budget plans. The tool is also well suited for following the progress of projects through Gannt chart visualisations and the creation of task dependencies. Though the tool is less useful when you have overlapping time spent on tasks.
LP is used to manage the execution of complex marketing plans and determine available resources for requested projects. Implementation is by a core team of project managers, but all individuals working on projects managed through LP use the platform to track progress, time spent and upload collateral and email conversations. The email integration is especially nice.
- Email integration is really nice.
- It has nice dashboard features for quick views and an understanding of where resources are being spent.
- Not good for both tracking human resource availability and project management simultaneously. Setting up to do one, makes it hard to do the other.
- Feels clunky and not very user-friendly.
If you have a large project and all of the people working on it are assigned to a particular tactic from idea, to creation, to review, to execution. Putting everything in one tactic and having checklist items that everyone can see is really useful. However, once a tactic or project is marked done, it is hard to find assets and history if you want to build on that tactic for future project work. Personally, I don't like the user experience with the software. It feels clunky and not intuitive.
They have been great in trying to come up with creative solutions to help us do what we want to do with the platform. I would say their support has been exceptional because we have hit them with some complex requests.
Our entire organization uses LiquidPlanner to manage projects and tasks. Our Production department uses it primarily, while our Marketing department has been using it to interact with the Production department on their tasks, and also has been starting to track their own tasks. It addresses the problem of not having a cohesive system for tracking various projects and tasks together. It does an effective job of managing an entire company's tasks.
- Manages a huge amount of information related to projects and tasks.
- Offers different views and search options to get the information you're looking for.
- Estimation and time tracking work well and help keep everyone on the same page.
- The interface is messy and cluttered. The best way to find things and see what you actually want to see is the main Projects view which is also the most cluttered and hardest to maneuver in.
- Clicking an external link someone posted in a comment or task description doesn't open in a new window by default, so we are constantly having to go back to get to LiquidPlanner again.
- The way that the interface saves your state globally (rather than per tab instance) means that if you click a link from someone else to a task that's not yours, then it adjusts your filters on the Projects page. Then if you refresh another LiquidPlanner window where you were on the Projects tab, suddenly all of its filters are updated and what you were looking at may no longer be there.
- It might just be the way that we use the system, but the Home and My Work tabs are fairly useless for us. They typically don't show the tasks we're actually looking for.
It is suited well if the whole company is on-board and if you take the time and effort to train everyone and to use LiquidPlanner as it was designed. Used in such a scenario, I think it could be a very effective project management and task tracking tool. If you have custom needs and need a solution that will bend to support almost any scenario, you might end up fighting with the system to get it to do what you want.
Our entire company uses LiquidPlanner to schedule projects across all team members and track time. It's great for tracking time and it also really helps us see the big picture of what we're currently working on as well as what's in the pipeline. It allows our sales team to better predict how soon a new project can get on the schedule, and it also helps us better support our existing customers by budgeting hours each week to address any concerns or new items that pop-up on the schedule.
- Time tracking
- Gantt chart views of scheduling
- Multi-user collaboration
- Steep learning curve
- High per-seat price point
- You can use it to manage projects but I find other tools work better for that need
It is great for large companies or small -- basically any company where you want to be able to get both a high-level overview and a granular look at your current and future workload. It's also great for time tracking, particularly if you want/need to track on a granular and/or task level.
Our organization is still in its infancy regarding adoption of LiquidPlanner. I'm currently acting as the primary evangelist for the product to encourage more people to start using it. As a CPG company, I am attempting to prove out how LiquidPlanner can be employed to facilitate our product development process, for which we have many projects with complicated dependencies running concurrently, with competing (and changing) priorities.
- Ability to dynamically reprioritize work and immediately see the effect on all active projects (for example, if you put a deadline at risk because another project is dropped in and takes precedence).
- Great transparency of entire project portfolio, since by default everything resides in a single workspace. Nobody can hide from missed deadlines; they're there for all to see.
- Product is designed to be collaborative; everyone can easily update the status of their own tasks, capture conversations at a project or task level (reducing email overload), and attach documents from other services such as Box.
- Great online help/support portal with lots of video tutorials and knowledge base articles.
- Our dedicated customer success manager has been more than willing to help us in any way possible to improve our utilization of LiquidPlanner by sharing best practices, reviewing our workspace and making suggestions, etc. If you are willing to invest in LiquidPlanner, they are there to support you every step of the way.
- Security/permissions could be more flexible. Users can be granted access to either the entire project workspace or specific projects. I'd prefer a middle option where you can grant a user access to all current and future projects that reside in a particular "package" (a LiquidPlanner construct for grouping similar tasks or projects).
- LiquidPlanner has some unique scheduling concepts that may be unfamiliar to seasoned project managers who dream about Gantt charts and are MS Project experts. In fact, this is one of the reasons why some individuals at my company have struggled to embrace it. I think that LiquidPlanner could add some modules to their online support site to focus specifically on this type of individual and help to ease the transition to the LiquidPlanner way of thinking.
- Their desktop web application is stellar. However, they've been lagging in updating their mobile app. I don't think that the mobile app needs all of the functionality of the desktop web application (it would make the smartphone app too complicated to use), but the basic UI hasn't evolved along with iOS and could use some sprucing up.
LiquidPlanner is great for any organization looking for an easy-to-use collaborative project management solution and is willing to break away from the "MS Project style" of project management. It is suited particularly well for agencies or consulting firms who work on client projects, although we are a CPG company, and I have no issue using it for internal projects.
LiquidPlanner is used organization-wide to manage client projects, time budgets, deadlines, project assets and employee time sheets. It keeps all of our projects focused and on track for timely on-budget completion with easy collaboration between team members.
- Prioritize projects and deadlines.
- Allow multi-user tasks and set contingencies.
- Create simple to use working calendar for each user.
- Assigning projects from 'Inbox' to actual clients is cumbersome.
- No direct link to calendar view from main navigation.
- Drag & drop functionality on calendar view would be helpful.
- When logging time from a timer, the task disappears from the drop-down. This is an inconvenience if you need to mark the project finished.
It is well suited for companies with multiple divisions/clients and numerous projects. It would be overkill for small companies managing fewer than 25 projects at a time. It is well-suited for those managing teams with multiple members, especially when they're working on the same projects at the same time and/or if their projects are contingent upon each other. LiquidPlanner is highly suited for deadline specific project management.
Support is the least impressive part of LiquidPlanner for me. Issues are resolved, but software bugs or suggested improvements are generally blown off or responded to condescendingly. This software updates more frequently than any other software we use, frequently during times we use the product (Saturday mornings). Often the updates result in aesthetic changes that seem pointless when there are bigger updates that would make using the product easier, which should be a higher priority.
TCA is a custom machine builder. We are project based. Most of our designs are one-offs. Projects last three months to one year. Our engineers work on many projects at one time. LiquidPlanner is ideal for our business model. We especially like the ASAP feature that allows management to direct attention to where it needs to be. We also use LiquidPlanner to determine our staffing needs. I can reassign projects to virtual members to see where the revenue lands and how it impacts our sales goals for the year.
- Priority based planning. Every other planning software we've used relies on dates and therefore needs constant attention. Priority based planning means that the plan is always up to date.
- Ease of use. LiquidPlanner has a very short learning curve. This is critical to getting team members to use it.
- Forecasting. LiquidPlanner makes it very easy to run scenarios by simply dragging and dropping projects and reassigning resources.
- Awesome Support. I get personal responses very fast. Usually within a couple hours. And, they listen and ask for more information.
- Importing. Right now, LiquidPlanner only imports some fields. I have made an Excel spreadsheet that generates the labor tasks for our projects. I need importing to allow for dependencies, default activity and multiple owners. I've submitted a request for this. They are working on it.
- Dashboards. Dashboards were just rolled out in the last release. I haven't found it particularly useful just yet. They have not exposed a lot of information for use in the widgets thus far.
- Fixed expenses. It would be great to have the ability to account for fixed expenses for a project.
What happens to your plan the day after you create it? For other software, it's out of date. Because LiquidPlanner is priority based, the expected due dates are always valid.
LiquidPlanner is the primary software used by Redapt, Inc. for project scheduling and resource allocation. LP allows us to track and assign project tasks in real-time, creating an integrated experience for team members and management. We are able to evaluate the utilization of resources and make educated decisions on resource allocation through the Analytics module.
- The ability to organize projects into packages and easily move projects between ownership makes the tool quite useful.
- Creating templates provides the ability to quickly and easily create new projects with similar tasks.
- The reporting features allow for a multitude of views into the productivity of resources and project completion.
- Reporting can be somewhat difficult to manage without some trial and error.
LiquidPlanner is quite useful for multiple small projects that are shared across a large number of users. The web-based interface allows for quick updates across the enterprise. I would not recommend using this tool for projects that contain a large number of dynamic tasks. The web interface can be somewhat slow in making changes to project structure.
I used LiquidPlanner to create the Gantt chart for following progress and milestones for a project. You can visualize when deadlines are and when you want to start working on a milestone. You also get reminders about starting something or when a task is due. It helps make the responsible person and project manager accountable for tasks.
- Visualize tasks and milestones. It was very easy to create tasks and relations between tasks. Nice to be able to export them for others to see.
- Reminders for tasks and milestones. This really helped keep everyone on task for their responsibilities.
- Create reports. These were very useful for meetings and showing others about project progress.
- It was very difficult to have any overlap between tasks that needed to be worked on at the same time. The schedule would not allow it.
- The task/milestone list was listed in order of priority as opposed to the order that you want them. It was difficult to see relatedness between tasks.
Liquid Planner is well suited for situations where you want to make sure every hour is accountable and scheduled. It is less appropriate when the times that you work on certain tasks overlap and are less strictly defined.
Currently we have one department actively using it, but we have plans to get more of the company involved. It addresses the issues of being able to visualize a long, complex workflow.
- LiquidPlanner's biggest strength is that it allows you to have a simple visualization of a complex workflow with the use of packages, project folders, tasks, etc. Long-term projects can be overwhelming, especially if you have to multitask. LiquidPlanner allows you to manage efficiently.
- LiquidPlanner is a very powerful project management tool, but it allows you to use it in varying levels. The more data you want to give it, the more data it will give you, allowing you to perfect your team and project's workflow. The most notable example is time estimates. If you are able to estimate how much time certain tasks within a project take, you can roughly calculate how long the whole project will take. If kept up with, it can be extremely valuable to budget time and resources.
- With its different ways of commenting, communication about specific portions of a project is very easy. The tagging system works really well, so that when you tag someone on a comment, they will get an email that will notify them, keeping the whole project moving along.
- LiquidPlanner's mobile app definitely needs some work. It doesn't display properly, having many things on the right hand side cut off. It doesn't update/refresh well. I can't imagine the mobile app will ever have the functionality of the Web version, but it needs to come a lot closer.
- LiquidPlanner requires that everyone actively participate in order to maximize its benefit. However, it can be difficult for everyone to be on top of all of their responsibilities all of the time. Not sure on a solution, but it can be a lot to manage.
I think LiquidPlanner is best suited for workflows that involve multiple people, as it really emphasizes accountability. However, I can see it being useful to a single person working on a large project with lots of steps.
We use Liquid Planner to manage tasks across our organization. It took me a bit of getting used to, but now I wonder why I hadn't used it sooner. Right from managing individual activities, to managing project tasks between teams, LiquidPlanner offers an end to end solution for project managers and team leads.
- Resource management
- Task allocation
- Tracking deadlines
- Better control of team inbox to help filter sensitive project information
It is especially great for managing large teams, or long-term projects. I used it with a small team and found it to be useful, but I think the benefits of the app will be amplified in a larger organizational setting.
We use LiquidPlanner for to manage software implementation projects for new customers and customers that upgrade or add on new modules. In the past, we used NetSuite to try to manage projects, but since that wasn't a true project management software things were easily lost or buried. LiquidPlanner provides a detailed look at projects' status and provides a quick snapshot of who is working with each customer.
- Ease of use
- Notifications - emails members when tasks are assigned or updated, and you can follow tasks that are not yours so that you can keep track of their status.
- Well designed UI
- Unique mail addressees for each task to keep track of correspondence
- Reporting - sometimes I can't filter on the fields I need to report on
- Personal reporting - without administrative access users cannot easily export a list of all tasks they have outstanding
- Not responsive - hard to view on phone/tablet
If you have complex projects with many steps and many people working on them, or if you have a desire to report on many small aspects of a project, LiquidPlanner might not be the best fit. If you have smaller scale projects and are ok with doing some manipulation of project data outside of LiquidPlanner, it's a great software.
