Overall Satisfaction with LiquidPlanner

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.
  • Increased employee stakes in their tasks and responsibilities.
  • Easier to visualize project progress.
  • MS SharePoint,MS Project
MS Project was much more difficult to use for entering tasks. LiquidPlanner was more user-friendly.
MS SharePoint was not used for Gantt charts, but really excelled in document and data sharing between different teams.
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.
