Planning – Plans in detail

Plans is for anybody who needs to perform planning but isn’t a professional project manager. It is aimed at individuals rather than companies.

Generally personal planning apps are either too simple, essentially just lists of goals – or too complex with resource sheets, Gantt charts, critical path analysis, and more. At Target Horizon we have decades of experience in project management. We have used that experience to produce Plans, a product that reduces planning to its fundamentals,  and then makes that easy to use.

Within Plans there are three views:

These represent the core issues of project management:

  • what we are going to do
  • when it will be done
  • how much it will cost.

Each of these views can be seen as a list. Here the individual tasks may be amended or the ordering may be changed.

If the device is rotated however the display changes to a schedule view, displaying the following:

While in scheduling view tasks may be moved to amend their dates or change their duration. Any changes made in a schedule view are reflected back to the table view, and any changes in the calendar are reflected in the base plans.
