Editors' Review

+
The last thing a project manager needs is one more project. Though Z Planner Agenda has all the necessary features to help a busy person organize complex projects, the program itself is so convoluted it becomes a project in itself. Though not geared to replace corporate project-management software, this program is for people who manage multiple projects or activities and need help organizing work flow and deadlines. Z Planner offers basic organizational functions, such as dividing projects into tasks and assigning priorities to each task. If you take the plunge (and it's hard to pass up free software) be sure to read the Help file included with the download. The interface is not intuitive and will require a lot of troubleshooting before you're able to get to work. If you enjoy a challenge, Z Planner Agenda will amply provide one--but if you're a project manager with enough projects, look elsewhere for software assistance.

"I tried many planners this one works the best!"

December 22, 2008  |  By christes2002

 |  Version: Z Planner Agenda 1.0

Pros

It allows me to kn instantly what is done and what left to be done on the multiple projects I have to handle. This software make me look good to my bosses.

Cons

The instructions on how to use it are difficult to follow, or what I wanted to accomplish was beyond what was instructed. But I did accomplish what I wanted in less time than downloading another software title.

Summary

With a click of a button I know where each project is in the development, and what the the next step is and others can do the same. In the long line of assistants that have done this job, I'm the only one who has found software that can eliminate my position.

"This user does not recommend the Z Planner Agenda 1.0 to anyone."

September 11, 2007  |  By plmar

 |  Version: Z Planner Agenda 1.0

Cons

I was looking for a free and clear agenda that would allow me a fast and clear understanding of my free times (in order to set appointments). Well, my conclusion is that this program is ********. You can?t even ask for precise timing when doing time frame for your activities. It is hours approximate. In other words, no quarter or half hours are available. It is hard to understand (the interface sucks) and when you do so, you realize it is not what you needed.

"A Very Good Time Management Application"

June 26, 2007  |  By NeoTeemZ

 |  Version: Z Planner Agenda 1.0

Pros

zPlanner works by categorizing everything you do during a day into either Projects or Activities. Projects are things you do which have a start and end dates - e.g. a self-study course, redecorating the house, a trip, etc. - while activities are things you do regularly, whether daily, weekly, monthly, or otherwise - e.g. sleeping, going to the gym, reading, etc.

When you plan a project, you get the option of dividing it into Tasks. This is a universal method of project management, recommended by virtually every time management speaker or guidebook, and it has many benefits - but this is not the place for a detailed discussion. You can take a look at McGraw Hill's book entitled Time Management for more details.

Whether you're planning tasks or activities, you get to set Time Frames for them. This is basically setting when you're going to start and finish.

After setting time frames, you're presented with a Schedule which uses all the information you've entered so far to give you a visual representation of what your day, week, or month will be like. This is very useful since it gives you a chance to have a Big Picture or a Bird's Eye view, so you can make changes when something doesn't seem convenient or doable. You can also print the schedule so that you have with you whenever you need it.

You can also set Reminders. These reminders can be single or recurrent, and you can set them daily, weekly, monthly, or annually for any task or activity you have entered. Actually, I have only tested the reminder feature once during my initial tour of the application, but I haven't used it in real life time management yet. But during the test, it seemed very easy and useful.

All in all, I find zPlanner an indispensable tool in my everyday life. It helps me manage my time very efficiently, and I find that everything I read in time management books and manuals can be easily applied and integrated into the program. Sometimes it takes me a minute or two to figure out a way to do that, but it's usually pretty straight-forward.

Cons

- A somewhat counterintuitive Graphical User Interface (GUI)

- Requires going almost all the way through the help system to really understand how the application works
