Good app, poor service


I’ve been using the app and web version for several years. Once in a long while, I can no longer connect to my lesson plans during teaching time unfortunately. It is not due to internet issue from work place. I even tested out using my Verizon’s internet data as a hotspot. On March 6, it happened again where I cannot access my lesson plans and again I verified that it’s not the internet issue at work. I called their support number. The automated message said something to an extent that if you need an immediate or quick assistant is to email them. I emailed them asking if their server was down. As of this review (March 8), I still haven’t heard back from them. However, with that said, I was able to connect back to my lesson plans later that same day. Again, I like using their planbook. I’ve been using it for 4 years now but poor service support when you need to get a hold of them.

Love program but not the app


LOVE Planbook! The ability to share/copy plans and units from other teachers is amazing! Also appreciate the ability to provide suggestions for improving and they will follow up when the improvement is chosen, again when started and lastly when completed. Plans can be copied year to year and units dropped right into plans, so many great features that have made my life easier over the past few years. With all the good, the app is lacking. Isn’t as easy to use, has some glitches - prefer to hop on the computer - 80% of the time this is how I use Planbook, but it’s frustrating the other 20%

Love this app

I have used a lot of different planning apps, and this is the one I have found to be most useful. The only thing I am unhappy about is I can’t find where to make suggestions. I would add handwriting functionality to this app as well as lesson templates. Other than that, it works very well for me!
