  • All in all, LiquidPlanner is a cloud-based project management system that centralizes critical information and automates tasks like timekeeping and task management.

    Pros : Predictive algorithms that automatically update Gantt charts by recalculating estimated project completion dates and projecting realistic task deadlines.

    Cons : Dashboards don't sufficiently meet C-level executives' visibility needs.

  • If you like to manage tasks in an outline-style list, with folders and sub-folders to organize tasks and options to bulk-add tasks, LiquidPlanner's interface will be sure to fit your needs. Then, it'll help you get even more done, but taking the guesswork out of project planning and giving you clear, achievable due dates. You'll never overcommit again.

  • LiquidPlanner isn’t the newest project management software provider in the game, nor is it the oldest, but they are good at what they do. We all know how precious time is and how important it is to meet deadlines, hit milestones and achieve objectives. Even if you somehow drift of the path to your goals, the applications make it easy to get back on. If you are a project manager or leading a crucial project for your organization, take a look into LiquidPlanner.

  • Simply so easy

    Most of the time, I just need to track time or check to see if I already have a task for something that I thought of on the bus. It's super simple and easy and the menus make sense and its really fast (depending on Cell coverage).

    Pros : Love how easy this is, and as my company's LP champ, I love to suggest to others to install it.

    Cons : The one feature you really need is opening any links on your phone should default to the App if you have it installed.

    Innovative Time Management & Planning

    We use LiquidPlanner for all employees to organize "direct charge" and overhead tasks. The estimating and prioritization approach is different from traditional project scheduling and captures real-time dynamics as you work. The program has helped us manage large task sets, discover organizational issues more quickly, and we have yet to tap into the more advanced features.

    Pros : Real-time updating and estimating capabilities. Easy-to-use GUI. Timer application. Facilitates team communication within the tool such as attaching files, adding comments, and creating notes. Ability to deep-dive into detailed information and metrics. Timesheet integrated with tasks and charge codes. Prioritization-based tasking saves us time from having to create dependency links between most tasks (you can still do that if you want to).

    Cons : Discipline required to include unplanned interuption-type tasks, which will push out your "planned" estimations. Charges by the user, so make sure all users are committed to using the tool.

    Not for the startup

    It's a bit of a bait and switch. You see a $29 price and think no problem. What you don't get until you've invested (wasted) time evaluating is that its' really a minimum of 10 seats and you have to pay upfront a year subscription and oh by the way you really need the $39 package to do what you need. So now it looks like a $5K subscription that you are going to commit to after a 2 wk part time trial... sorry its just not that compelling. For that price I can pay maintenance on two more seats of Solidworks and I'm sure of what that gets me.

    A slow product end-users don't really want to use

    What do you like best?

    Ability to add many tasks at once. Checklists. Linking Dropbox files. Reporting. Quick overview of the week.

    What do you dislike?

    - links are not auto-linked

    - editing comments breaks lines

    - too slow

    - going back in time is difficult (what changes did we make to the product in May 2013?)

    - replies from emails include signature images

    - no ability to create recurring tasks or tasks that have a fixed time (ex. meeting with a client)

    - having to select a project, then going back to select a projet folder

    - breadcrumbs (project folder and priority) are not clickable. The arrow buttom isn't as flexible.

    - the team I supervise write down their times on paper and transfer the hours to LP at the end of the day. One uses Google calendar to keep track of his time.

    - Notes and Brief are hidden. We asks the team to write a checklist "see note" when there's one.

    - Mobile app needs to be simplified and do a much better job.

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Look into Slack

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    We are a web developpement agency working with hundreds of clients. We use LP for production planning and communication.

    Reports are useful.

    Dialed in on so many fronts, lackluster on others

    What do you like best?

    The reporting. LP's reporting is head and shoulders above the rest. The reports are easy to make and provide a great tool for sifting through data.

    I also like the way the projects are presented. Too many of the competitors make it hard to get a good look at many projects at once. With the LP tree structure I am able to get a feel for where each project stands with just a quick glance.

    Other features I like are:

    Timesheet exports are great.

    Custom fields.

    Customize-able columns.

    What do you dislike?

    The scheduling is way too cumbersome. We dont even use it. I understand the intent and think it's quite nice, but it just takes too much management to setup the schedule so it provides any value. We still use a Google doc for our scheduling.

    Multiple owners has proven problematic for us. It was better before. The biggest problem is that if one person logs time to a task it doesnt reduce the overall effort. In theory, it's fine because everyone would be updating remaining efforts but it just doesnt work in the real world.

    We need much more granular permissions. I'd like to be able to restrict people from setting activities, moving things, running specific reports, setting fields, etc. For our purposes, LP seems to only have two levels of permissions.

    We desperately need daily timesheet submission. The way it's setup right now we have no way of knowing if people logged their time day to day. It also makes end of the month reconciliation extremely difficult.

    The...

    Recommendations to others considering the product

    Pretty good product overall. If you need reporting, it's a great tool.

    It's not a replacement for all of your tools though.

    I love LP and tell a lot of people about it but it has it's shortcomings.

    What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you realized?

    The ability for everyone to see where each project stands at any given moment has been extremely valuable.

    Our company digs deep into our numbers and we wouldnt be able to do that with other systems.

  • Stop searching. LiquidPlanner is the only project management software you need.

    LiquidPlanner Use Cases and Deployment ScopeTCA 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.

    Pros : 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 with

    Cons : 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. I

    LiquidPlanner is a low-cost alternative to traditional PM software

    LiquidPlanner Use Cases and Deployment ScopeLiquidPlanner 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.  

    Pros : 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.

    Cons : Reporting can be somewhat difficult to manage without some trial and error.

    Easy to use for scheduling and task management

    LiquidPlanner Use Cases and Deployment ScopeI 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.

    Pros : 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.

    Cons : 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.

  • LiquidPlanner is useful especially for educational and nonprofit firms who are managing projects as part of an event or annual curriculum. Irrespective of the edition or plan you choose, the benefits are almost the same: Unlimited projects, key integrations, feature updates, free support, and mobile apps.
