Planyway Feature Reviews

25 reviewers had the following to say about Planyway's features:

Tiana D.

Great functionality and organizational tool!

2021-05-25

This lead us to identifying which team members had too much on their plate and areas we as managers, could relieve tasks for these employees.

Pros

Integrating this software with our team was easy and the calendar feature kept planning and project timelines very organized.

Cons

It can appear that Planyway is just a simple calendar at first glance, instead of a tool that can track time, etc.

1 calendar = all your tasks : No more missing time

2021-02-02

With the timeline view i can also easily adjust the planning of the task.

Pros

- the connexion with Outlook calendar + the superposition of various boards : in 1 calendar i can have all the things i have to do during the week - the time tracking : to see what i've really done during the week

Cons

Integration with Microsoft Teams could be great

Useful Tool

2021-06-03

I think things are still being rolled out so I'm excited to see the program improve over time.

Pros

I can create tasks for myself in Trello then plan out my tasks with Planyway.

Cons

I think it would be useful to be available to produce a report with any time tracked tasks.

Hi Mickele, super that you like the Google calendar integration which Planyway provides! It shouldn't be off though, please contact us at support@planyway.com, so we could check on that issue. And regarding the time tracking reports, you can export your Planyway data to Excel/CSV including all the tracked time in the tasks: https://planyway.com/help/features/export-to-CSV

Timeblockig with Planyway

2021-05-25

Its a great tool for planning out my day and keeping track of the hours I spend on all the different projects I am involved in.

Pros

In addition to this, it is seamless to integrate with task management apps and my existing calendars.

Cons

I use it purely for its time blocking functionality and it is honestly perfect for that function.

Efficient Task Management

2020-02-20

Great for quick ramp-up time to manage projects big and small and connecting project task management to Google Calendar is the best reason to use Planyway.

Pros

It's also perfect for planning trips/vacations with others where you want to attach Trello cards as time blocks on the schedule on Google Calendar.

Cons

There's no browser plugin for Firefox for Opera.

Excellent Productivity Tool

2021-02-02

Great tool - still discovering all the things it can do!

Pros

The Gannt view is fantastic for visualising projects over a yearly period and the Time Tracking is super useful as you can really plan on a micro-level and also see how long you spent on each task.

Cons

When you add a start time to a Card in Planyway it doesn't backfill to Trello.

Must have scheduling tool

2020-04-06

Pros

Super easy to integrate, easy to visualize the tasks for the day and plan an effective schedule.

Cons

A provision to add total estimated time for a card and track the spent and remaining time would be very valuable.

Some great concepts but a little clunky

2021-05-25

There are some concepts I intend to take into future planning sessions, but if I had my way I wouldn't use Planyway to plan a project again.

Pros

I like that it serves as a venue to promote planning/pull planning, and the integration with Trello is nice.

Cons

My biggest complaint with using this software is it is not very streamlined when it comes to planning. It's difficult to see the full task, I can't assign a duration, and there is no option to see the full project timeline so I waste time trying to get to the right week.

Makes the view for all my projects so simple!

2020-02-20

I juggle multiple large projects that are extremely time-sensitive on my own and this has brought so much ease to see the big picture and prioritizing tasks and meetings to keep the team on track.

Pros

This simple task and the multiple boards on one calendar view was a nightmare before I started using this.

Cons

I haven't really come across anything I don't like yet. Still setting up my system since I need to use it a bit differently.

Using Planyway for Projektmanagement in a marketing department

2021-02-09

We use Trello and Planyway to control the project management for our marketing projects and campaigns.

Because I can use Trello better for project management (timeline).

Helped make Trello 100% more useful

2020-03-07

I'm planning out projects across a small team that has both long term and short term tasks.

Pros

Also I can take a look by project and assess what needs to be prioritized to hit milestone deadlines.

Cons

I'm working on building this kind of checklist into all project closeouts, but it's hard to interweave with card completion.

Great for creative projects

2021-06-03

This does help me plan my everyday and make big projects seem less overwhelming.

Pros

I like the visual representation and the ability to basically plan my week based on tasks dropped into Planyway from Trello.

Cons

I would like a better visualization of timelines and a way to see how tasks are related to another (like each part of project being the same color on a calendar).

Hi Madie, glad that Planyway helps you to plan your week workload. Kindly note that you can use dependencies on the timeline to link cards which belong to one project. Besides, you can group cards on the timeline by lists, labels and boards - perhaps this could also be handy when working with cards from different projects. And last but not least, you can quickly label cards using shortcuts: https://planyway.com/help/features/color-coding-cards. Please feel free to reach out should you have any questions.

How I use Planyway

2020-03-05

I like the Gantt chart view of the application, but I wish it was more robust and functioned more like the more common Gantt chart applications available.

Pros

I like the ability to incorporate very simple Gantt charts in my Planyway view.

Cons

It would also useful to have an automatically moving, or responsive milestone. In which the milestone would move in response to the movement of the dependent task.

Planyway for IT project management

2021-06-01

It's good but I wish it was easier to pass on to my team and encourage their adoption of it

Pros

I like the customisable gantt chart which allows us to see projects over time in a way that our senior management can easily understand and prioristise

Cons

Having to pay for individual team members to be able to see the gantt chart is an administrative hassle

Great Tool, but lacks what I'm looking for

2021-06-02

*Please* make Planyway's metadata accessible through an API, be it Trello's or a dedicated one.

Pros

Being able to plot out what tasks took up my time and when lets me make sure I'm attributing my full workload to tasks.

Cons

Trello's API is *very* clear and well made. 3rd party visualization tools like PowerBI are simple enough to build on it.

Hi Simon, thank you for sharing! Kindly note that you can add Planyway dates to Trello cards if you install our extension for Chrome. If you use Outlook, you can connect it to Planyway for the 2-way sync. And for the regularly occurring cards, you can consider the recurring option in Planyway (https://planyway.com/help/features/recurring-tasks-in-trello). For any assistance, please feel free to get in touch.

Great for grant management and keeping track of deadlines

2020-02-20

I use Planway for scheduling my own work and also helping stay on top of client projects and deadlines.

Pros

I like being able to see the status of projects in a calendar format that I can sync with my Trello cards and share in a google calendar.

Cons

If I share to a client partner I can’t see their “lane” unless I change the view. I like the lane view.
