Like a good personal assistant, Project Planner Personal Edition is organized, capable, and professional in appearance. It offers an excellent range of features, including Gantt charts, a resource planner, a calendar, a risk analyzer, and a report builder. A sidebar on the left provides quick access to views of the project. The overall look is sharp and businesslike, but not flashy. You will find it extremely easy to plan, maintain, and edit your projects. Project Planner is fully compatible with Microsoft Project, making migration between these two tools easy. The download installer is not very large. The program runs smoothly, and all the features performed well in our tests. In sum, this edition of Project Planner is an excellent choice for individuals who need to deal with complicated projects. It's simple enough for a home renovation, and powerful enough for organizing work at a small company.
