Product Announcement – I2E Consulting of Waterford, Connecticut has released Project Planning Pro 2.7.6, an important update to their award-winning app for visualizing, planning, and managing projects on macOS. The app offers the flexibility to manage project plans in or out of the office, via its availability on the macOS, iOS, and Android platforms.
Project Planning Pro allows anyone to easily create project plans, create and edit tasks, manage projects, and more. Planners can make use of the app’s interactive Gantt chart feature to easily edit and update tasks. Version 2.7.6 of the app brings the ability to sync projects between macOS and iOS devices via its iCloud syncing feature. Projects are automatically synced between devices that are logged into the same iCloud account.
“Project management for Mac users just got that much easier with our new version of Project Planning Pro, Mac users can quickly create a project plan by entering tasks, duration and start dates,” says Jay Vyas, Head of Digital Marketing for I2E Consulting. “Sharing plans with other users is easier than ever, due to app also being available on the iOS and Android platforms. Plus, plans can even be shared with Windows users, thanks to the app’s handy Microsoft Project Plan Import/Export features!”
Project Planning Pro offers numerous key features that make creating and managing a project plan easier than ever. The app offers flexibility for users who need to access their project plans, no matter where they’re located.
Project Planning Pro’s interactive user interface is designed to make project management a simpler, easier, and less time-consuming task, so users have plenty of time to focus on important tasks. The app offers three critical views of each project, designed to bring a unique perspective to each project and its tasks.
The app’s Gantt View displays the project’s task dependencies, milestones, task start and completion dates, the cost of the project and its associated tasks, and the percentage complete of the project at a single glance.
Meanwhile, Critical Path View highlights the most critical tasks that need to be completed on time, ensuring the project moves according to schedule. By displaying the proper critical path for a project, managers can more easily make informed decisions as the project moves forward.
Resource View offers a complete view of all project resources, along with the tasks they are involved with. The information includes the cost and total number of hours worked, and can easily be exported for reporting.
The app’s Task Linkage feature offers the ability to create four type of dependencies, easily displaying which tasks are dependent on other tasks, and how they are related. Dependency types include Finish to Start (FS), Start to Start (SS), Finish to Finish (FF) and Start to Finish (SF).
Project Planning Pro also allows importing and exporting plans in XML and PPP formats for use in either Microsoft Project, or the Project Planning Pro app on the iPhone, iPad, or on Android devices. It also offers sharing options that allow exporting project plans as PDF, XML, or CSV file formats, making it easy to share information with almost anyone.
