Really very easy to use and powerful

We have a lot of different types of projects that need managing and I’ve tried a few other programs to try and manage them. The problem has been getting the right balance of “enough detail” but not too complicated. I’m in both Mac and WIndows environments so I’ve used MS Project for years - I like it but it can get overly complex very quickly. And, it’s not always a simple general purpose planning app. This is a simple app with a lot of higher end features that are really easy and quick to use. I just started using it but I like it a lot. Very good general purpose project management. Good balance between details and time spent on working with it. I’m very impressed.

Mac Project Planner for the rest of us

Unless you have been raised on Microsoft Project, a project planning app is going to give you a huge learning curve with many of the features being overkill for all but the most dedicated user. Omniplan and Concept Draw are more approachable than MS Project, but the learning curve is still there. Sheetplanner allows you to begin with a spreadsheet/outliner interface to get started. You can then start adding complexity as you need or want it. I'm an administrator in higher education, and have little need for many of the features in a full-blown project management app. As a result, I went without for a decade. Sheetplanner is a perfect mix of ease of use and functionality that lets you get started at the ground floor, and then lets you add features as you see fit. I would encourage anyone who wants to use project management but cannot spare a load of learning how to navigate and use a monster project manager. It likely has more than enough features for your project.
