    Pros
    The portfolio view is also quite effective for project managers at gaining a great perspective of project progress, delays, and resource allocation.

    We were looking for a software that we could create and share projects with other members. Inspire Planner has been great and is helping us stay on track with our tasks.

    Customer support is fantastic. They were even able to implement some custom functionality that we requested when we signed on.

    The actual product is pretty bad. Very difficult to navigate, push out dates, set tasks, export etc.

    The inability to have multiple people editing the project or project tasks simultaneously has caused some issues and confusion on my team.

    My company did not appoint a leader to roll this out so no one was trained or in charge of this new feature.

    Inspire Planner to Inspire People

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    it improves the teamwork in my company, leaders able to monitor the performances of the team.

    Pros

    Able to create and share projects timeline & update within the team. Its a great tool to track your works as well. Like the layout of project plan especially the gaatt chart, well-designed!

    Cons

    hope that there will be auto-saved feature as you have to save your project manually after each update. Its not smart enough to compete with other software.

    Vendor response

    Hi there, Thanks for your review. We just wanted to let you know that Inspire Planner has an autosave feature when there is no activity for 5 minutes. The reason there is no autosave while you are editing the project is because of the undo/redo feature since once you save, you cannot undo your edits. If you have any other questions or suggestions, please feel free to get in touch with us at support@inspireplanner.com Have a great day!

    improveit 360 - End User Review

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    My company did not appoint a leader to roll this out so no one was trained or in charge of this new feature. I clearly realize this is on my company to roll this out but I want to ensure that Inspire Planner is pushing for this model. The model to have us be successful and have someone fully trained.

    Pros

    I like the detail of each event and how things are dependent on one another.

    Cons

    This is not customer facing, i'm not able to share with my clients the phases of their project or where they are with overall completion. I can certainly add them as a collaborator but in the overall grand scheme of things this doesn't show the customer what they have completed or the % of completion. Overall, it's not client facing to my customers.

    Vendor response

    Hi Kevin, I'm sorry you are not getting an optimal user experience from Inspire Planner. Any time you have questions or issues, please reach out to our support team (support@inspireplanner.com) and we will be happy to assist. Also, we are now offering an onboarding package with all new signups. Best, Thai

    Effective Tool with Good Features

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    After using the inspire planner app for a couple of months, I have had a great experience, and we are currently planning to roll it out to the rest of my company as our primary PM tool. Their customer service and support is excellent, and the app strikes a great balance between having enough features to be effective but not so many that it is hard to use or understand.

    Pros

    I like the fact that this tool integrates with Salesforce tasks as a native application. Often apps come with their own sets of objects and this makes adoption more difficult, but project managers are able to assign tasks and subordinates see those show up just like any other Salesforce task. The portfolio view is also quite effective for project managers at gaining a great perspective of project progress, delays, and resource allocation. Finally, the ability to assign project tasks to users who do not have a license is a great feature that allows us to work with partners rather than be limited to our internal users.

    Cons

    It is a challenge to structure operational tasks, as opposed to project tasks, since these also use resources but are not specific to any particular project. You are able to create a generic project to put these in, but this is not always a perfect solution.

    Inspire Planner review

    Reviewed 3 years ago

    Its great to see burning issues when looking into a project and the time tracker helps tracking time in a better way

    Pros

    The notifications sent and we can easily input our time sheet against the tasks created in Time Tracker

    Cons

    The Saving functionality in Inspire Planner Project Plan. To save we need to specifically click on save button and I feel if we by mistake come out of the window without saving it should save the changes.
