Pros: This is easily one of the best systems out there for recording individual users hourly time spent on projects and tasks. The ease with which you can record your time, assign that time, set estimates against each task and monitor an overall projects progress are incredibly useful.

Cons: For large projects with a huge number of seperate tasks and sub-tasks, it can look quite messy when viewing the project list. There is also a widget display which shows tasks split into blocks that be dragged around for easy ordering, whilst useful the viewing of it again is not the most appealing.

Best in field for PM solutions. Great support. Still lots of room for improvement.

Pros: Love the auto Gantt feature. Good time-logging and reporting. Clever scheduling engine. Incredibly flexible.

Cons: Large extra cost for capacity forecasting / resource workload. Missing functionality in Card View. NO TOUCH SCREEN FUNCTIONALITY!!! Can't filter by activity for reporting. Can't publish dashboards publicly. Doesn't integrate with MS Visual Studio.

Overall: Better PM visibility. Better collaboration. Reduced PM requirements.

Pros: I have tried a number of online PM tools and Liquid planner was one of the more polished options out there- provided some great functionality and the learning curve for its use never felt to steep.

Cons: Jump from small to medium number of users in the price is a little steep for the SME business- could do with a pricing structure in between

Overall: Provide a nice clean interface to manage projects remotely and allowed good sharing between teams across different sites.

Pros: For companies with concurrent projects that need to predict finish times while having a fairly automated approach to resource management, LiquidPlanner is for you. It's especially useful if you need to create dashboards where internal or external stakeholders can see key information as updated by users.

Cons: It's very expensive for what it does, overpriced in my opinion. They've come out with a slightly lower tier but it's still not very accommodating. They definitely have a premium product but to me, it doesn't match up with similarly advanced tools.

Overall: When using liquidplanner you can always tell how much work each team member has on his or her plate and when their projects will finish. The dashboards also make for very useful tools for internal and external use.

Pros: simplicity of use, literally zero learning curve, tons of features and flexible billing plans. The email to task feature saves everybody tons of time and allows tracking of email chains linked to an item on the project plan. Reporting is very good as well and allows to see Gannt charts with tons of flexibility. Great product overall

Cons: The fact that the price per user does not go any lower as you add more users. No on premises availability either.

Overall: cheaper option than Microsoft Project, cloud-based with very small amount of time needed to set up.

Pros: We've been using Liquid Planner for the last 5 years now and I can say that we are now managing 100% of our projects with it.

Building a platform like Potion is a lot of work in product design, marketing, development and customer support but Liquid Planner has been a huge help when it comes to managing our projects.

Whether it's dealing with our internal or customer projects, Liquid Planner (my guys call it LP) has been a huge help. We're using only part of the tools provided by LP, such as packages, tasks, attributions, deadlines, time tracking, resource planning and scheduling, but it's already bringing a huge providing us with both flexibility and structure.

The help resources are really thorough also and help us get the information we need to use it in an even better way.

Finally, and I think it's certainly one of the biggest strength of Liquid Planner, its support team is tremendous. All of our requests are always answered with concise and clear replies that push us forward.

Cons: As any PM tool, there is a learning curve and you need to get the team using it in the good way. Thankfully, the help resources are great.

Overall: Full PM tool, time tracking, billing.

Great project management software even though it doesn't fit our needs 100% of the time.

Pros: I like the way we can use this as a project management, time tracking, and a scheduling platform. So many other tools I've used only address one of these vital areas.

The timers on each task are one of my favorite features of Liquid Planner. It makes it so easy to track time and see how accurate estimates really are on a given task or set of tasks. You can easily view progress, see overruns and areas of concern (there's a red fire icon), and put as many details in the actual task as you need. You can link tasks together, create dependencies, and perform other actions to get a realistic view of a project.

Cons: Sometimes it is difficult to set up scheduling the way our company needs it to be represented. However Liquid Planner always seems to be putting out new features and their support team is very helpful in trying to help their clients find solutions.

Overall: I couldn't do my work every day without Liquid Planner. I am constantly referencing it and using it throughout the day.

Pros: The ability to accurately predict my workload and timelines in a completely fluid way and how quickly I can move, add, and remove tasks and projects.

Cons: Support is not offered to team/individuals like myself. Although I haven't really needed it, this is my only hesitation in recommended the tool to others who are small companies like me.

Overall: I use it daily to see an accurate picture of what's on my plate and what's coming. Best of all, if a client asks, "Can you do x task by x date?", all I have to do is input this in LiquidPlanner and I can give a quick, confident answer.

Pros: We develop software. The resource planning features are awesome... date prediction is best I have seen. Previously, we had to guess at completion dates, and always got them wrong. After calculating the effort level of a new project, we double the estimated time using a "Strategic Float" task to account for unexpected requirements. That is helping us accurately predict the finish date.

Cons: The ticket management and task workflow options are limited. The interface is focused on dates and people, while ticket details and documentation are hard to find and use. The code workflow config options are not as flexible either, but we are making it work.

Overall: Accurate project completion dates.

Pros: It does a lot of things well. It offers a lot of advanced scheduling functionality for project managers. The Projects tab is incredibly powerful. Time tracking works well. Tagging people in comments is a useful feature.

Cons: Liquid Planner's interface is kind of slow for us (we have a lot of projects). The Home and My Work tabs aren't very useful to me--they never seem to show me the right subset of tasks, which is possibly due to the way we're organizing projects and tasks, which causes most people to use the Projects tab, which is powerful, but advanced and cluttered. API integrations work well enough, but the Zapier integration, in particular, is lacking much useful functionality in my opinion. For example, what if someone wanted to send a Slack notification to a particular person every time a task was assigned to them? Currently, either not possible or at least much more difficult than it could be.

Overall: Liquid Planner is offering our business both a more consolidated approach to project management, as well as some features and functionality we didn't have before. Overall, I think it is helping our productivity.

Once you use the tools and navigate for a bit, the system flows great.

Pros: Methodology-agnostic and high scalability

Cons: Lacks the ability to assign dependencies in imported projects, will not export certain project hierarchy cleanly and lacks a way to interface with QuickBooks Online

Overall: The experience I have had with LiquidPlanner has been unparalleled compared to every other major Portfolio & Project Management (PPM) tool on the market. LiquidPlanner offers my organization a truly out-of-the-box scalable solution that is highly adaptive and intuitive to the way my organization's PMO is developed and to the way we manage projects across our highly diverse lines of business. LiquidPlanner is our one-stop-shop for everything project related as well as every other administrative or sales related task across our enterprise. Whether it is storing Project Artifacts, costing and budgeting projects or internal development cycles, identifying risk or periods of time where a staff augmentation would be necessary or just to have status updates via comments, LiquidPlanner covers all bases. My background is both from a PMBOK-aligned infrastructure Project Manager and a Scrum Coach for an applications development shop - and LiquidPlanner successfully caters to those methodologies without having to "fake the funk" or bend our processes to fit in the tool. The success of our PMO and of all of our projects is in no small part thanks to LiquidPlanner.

Overall: All in all the software does the job but could use some improvements. It needs and issues section to track issues either at the task level or project level. Time entry major issue, if someone makes a mistake in entering time it takes it away from the estimated time but when corrected it does not put it back. The time issue of not putting back the incorrect time causes extra work because you now need to go back and correct the estimated time as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: Add an issues function to the software

Cons: Not everyone in my organization has adopted it and even most that have don't use it to even a tenth of it's potential. That is a user issue not a software issue though.

Overall: Liquid Planner is easy to use and helps me to keep track of my time and deadlines better than any system that I have used in the past. The stop watch is my favorite feature in the program since I am able to quickly hit it and switch tasks when a different project needs unexpected attention. This has helped in keeping accurate time to each project.

Pros: I have recommended.
I like the meld of planning and projection.
I love the hi/lo estimations and the detail I can provide clients

Cons: Useability for doers, especially timesheets
Lack of integrations with SCM.
Poor connectivity/communication for my clients; their portals don't show custom fields, board views or timelines for tickets/tasks.
True Kanban is not feasible
Sprint-based planning for cross-team/project resource is not possible alongside weekly overviews
A desktop app would be great; especially for devs etc
The mobile app hasn't changed since we started using this in 2012 and is highly impractical.
Doesn't work well on ipads

Overall: I love it, however, our devs and creatives find it frustrating to use despite large amounts of training and personalisation. There are a number of tools that would make this more helpful and less painful to the "doers".

Our business needs are well met, though there are other aspects that don't accomplish our requirements. Kanban, for example, as well as cross-team/project sprint planning whilst maintaining a weekly outlook.

Finally, with the latest price hikes it doesn't feel "good value" and I'm now faced with justifying the expense when before it was self explanatory. This is compounded by exchange rates.

Pros: share information among all parties.

Cons: N/A

Overall: We are using LiquidPlanner (LP) in almost every project. Besides tracking and reporting progress inside, one of the best things is to keep our clients updated regarding their projects in real time. Such transparency has huge benefit to both side, the clients and the development team.

For clients, they may gain confidence from the project progress at any time. Especially, many of them are start-ups. They relies on the project to develop their business and talk further with the potential investors. The real time update helps to plan their future in a more accurate way.

For the team, LP is used to get real time feedback from clients. Any blocks may be identified and solved in time. And we know what we did is what the clients need and does bring business value to them.

In general, with LP, all the parties around the project get the transparency and are given the great confidence of the success.

Pros: The project planing and the system as a hole

Cons: Notification system
Mobile app

Overall: I find the concept to be the best way to manage projects, but the interface, lack of costumizability causes an unnecessary interface complexity. There are so many items and features that could be hidden from the average user.

But the biggest down side to the service is the complete lag of a notification system, making the task chat risky and out dated.

I also find the price tag to be too high, especially for smaller innovators and teams. But I guess you prefer big clients and not small clients.

The mobile app unfortunately is a very sad story, would love to use it but it is so slow and out of date that I find it unusable.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would like the chat, and notification to work more smoothly. A notfacition on "new message with you tagged" a message on your task, a message on tasks your following. A bit like the "My items tab" And a mobile app that supports timers, so you can start and stop them on go.

It still leaves much to be desired in terms of user interface/usability.

Comments: Been with Liquid Planner for 4 years now for our company. I like some of the updates that we are seeing. For a new staff joining, the software could be very daunting and confusing.

some suggestions:
- would like the time stamp back on attachments
- would like the ios app improved as well and less buggy.

Pros: Powerful tools that can help manage a time line.

Cons: No calendar view. Not easy to get use to it. Horrible UI. Slow. Average users will take a while to get use to it.

Overall: This is a software that is designed by an engineer without any UI experience. Overall, it's very powerful, but there's a lot of key features missing (or hidden) that would make any average user feeling intimidated. Liquid planner begins off assuming you're a master at understanding its layout. So unless you have a lot of time set aside to learn the ins and outs, this is going to be a long and wild ride. Once you've fully mastered the UI, and features, just hope that your fellow team members have done the same. This isn't a software that is easily picked up. Good luck, you're going to need it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Rebuild from the ground up. Talk to average users, not engineers. In theory a project manager should know how to use this, but if their collaborating team members is not on the same level, which is always the case, then this software fails.

Pros: Very large feature set, great support.

Cons: It's almost perfect, but there are some features I do miss and since it's so complete, sometimes it can be difficult to learn how to use a tool for the first time.

Overall: LiquidPlanner is a very complete software for managing projects, time spent, people, clients and analyzing the overall performance of your company. It has a lot of different functionalities. You'll probably never use all of them, since the system is so complete it has different features for different needs of all kinds of companies. We work with advertising and LP is invaluable in our day to day life. Customer support is rarely needed, but when it is, they are fast, polite and helpful. Having compared LP to other project management software, I can say I've never found one that adapts itself to our needs as much as this one.

Recommendations to other buyers: When in doubt, ask the customer support for help. They'll likely find an answer for what you need.

Pros: Great for managers for task and project management. There are a lot of features to use as well.

Cons: Learning curve and also a more intuitive 'task list' for daily tasks. Tasks and deadlines can be easily missed.

Overall: Liquid Planner is great for task and project management. It was great having our development team, graphic team and marketing team on one platform.

Recurring tasks and checklists made things easy to manage as well.

Unfortunately from a marketing team perspective, it was a little bit tougher to use. For most of our team members it was harder to learn and having a task list for the day was something that was lacking.

The biggest problem it solves is providing an all-in-one solution for a company including @-replies for communication and dependencies as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: The tutorial videos are helpful and should be watched before starting. It is also intimidating at first glance but once you get the hang of it, it's a very powerful software.

Cons: Wish the timer functionality wouldn't lose parts of a minute, will round down unless reached that whole minute.

Overall: Love this platform. We started off using asana and saw the need for something greater with more features. Luckily in our search we came across LP which solved a ton of our reporting needs, timeline needs, as well time management needs all into one platform, while at the same time having the ability to keep all communications on each project in one location. Any company can greatly benefit from the software and see immediate results.

Comments: We really enjoy using Liquid Planner, it's versatile enough to meet the needs of a small scholarly publisher-- which are notorious for how different they are from one another and from big trade houses. So the flexibility is key. The hierarchical set up is in line with our work processes but we're too small to think in terms of work hours, unlike freelancers or big companies who limit and measure work by time. We don't have that luxury, we just keep working until it's done, therefore the time tracking feature is not a tool we use. The codependency of tasks could be improved-- like a notification only and until someone else completes the prior task would be beneficial. The design/look updates seem superfluous at times, it occurs too frequently in my opinion and pushes current users through a momentary state of adjustment that's annoying. Otherwise, it's a great tool and we're very happy with it.

Cons: The search functionality is lacking. Filters are OK for broad searches. If I want something specific I have better luck searching my email for LP comments than using the LP search functionality.

Overall: LP is great for planning, but it is good for so much more! As a Quality Manager, I use LP to help maintain quality standards by implementing templates for various product types. Checklists ensure that standard tasks are followed and nothing is skipped. LP helps me feel confident that our defined processes were followed for each project and keeps processes from going out of control. LP is also flexible enough for me to implement customizations for error checking and continual process improvement ideas.

I still find some aspects of it awkward and not completely customized to our type of work. But once I began using it, I realized how valuable it was.

Pros: Tasks are laid out in a simple format that works across a variety of projects. Cross-project capacity analytics are also valuable for our use case.

Overall: Liquid Planner has some compelling features for project management. The forecasting feature is unique and quite useful. Time tracking and analytics are advanced and useful. However, when used for project work that is unrelated to software development, we'd had to create some work arounds to correctly prioritize. We have many concurrent work streams and so the prioritization programming within LP has created challenges for us. It's also hard to teach project team members to become power users in LP.

From my standpoint, the overall functionality and access is extremely easy to work with, although there are some things in regards to the reports and comment sections when adding a comment on an individual ticket, I would prefer to be able to view the latest update message on each ticket instead of all together in the folder. It makes it confusing which ticket that message belongs to, having to track down which status on each one.

Pros: Dynamic scheduling based on how long tasks will take. It really helps our team understand what there work will be for a week and plan accordingly.

Cons: Hierarchy of projects. Could there be a ranking of projects by a point scale so projects with the same ranking can filter into someone's work simultaneously?

Overall: LP is way better than Microsoft Project. The only quirk is the hierarchy when multiple projects are happening simultaneously. With the hierarchy one project always reads as a higher priority than the next. We had to develop a system to ensure the important tasks from all projects (packages) float to the top.

Pros: Rich features for tracking and managing resources. Unique dynamic features. Drag-and-drop simplicity. Responsive site.

Cons: Steep learning curve.

Overall: Really Organized tool to help track the process of our product development. It has a variety of complex and advanced features which cover all the needs we have for our projects management. However, the learning curve is kind of steep. When it comes to some simple project tracking, lots of features seem to be a bit redundant.

Pros: Flexibility, ability to manage multiple concurrent projects

Cons: Our need for prioritization by task (rather than project) can make it challenging to get tentative timelines in front of a client that are still reasonably accurate. Would love to see a 'timekeeper only' user license option, would like to be able to track time against checklist item

Overall: We use LP to manage multiple concurrent client projects. With several project managers sharing resources, it is vital to have visibility into resource availability and potential schedule conflicts. Because of the extremely long duration of our projects (with heavy work in the beginning, then intermittently for months to years afterwards), it took us some time to develop a workflow that would allow for prioritization of individual tasks rather than projects as a whole. But we've come a long way from using stand alone MS project files! Time tracking directly on the task has also been very beneficial for more accurate tracking and billing of work.

Recommendations to other buyers: More levels of users / more flexible permissions would be helpful for our business. For example, Project Managers cannot run their own time reports without having full Managerial access.

Comments: The on boarding and customer support has been some of the best I have seen in relation to some of the other IT tools we have purchased. They are always quick to respond, even if they don't have the full answer to my questions. When that is the case they always follow up. The only pain point we have is that because it is a newer product, there are features that haven't been developed yet. However they are constantly coming out with new features.

Comments: I like having a centralized place at work for jobs. Being able to post attachments, correspond with coworkers, have conversations in threads are all good things. The usability is not always easy though. Sometimes we have to click on something more than once to get it to open or access it. Shifting from Timesheets to Projects can take some time. Also, in Documents, having to switch from Project Only to All Files seems to be redundant, especially when things that are being posted, are posted for the project.

Recommendations to other buyers: You just had me fill out an area on the previous page where I described pros and cons. You might want to amend your survey to have this all on one page please.

Comments: LiquidPlanner is a fully featured Project Management software. It has made robust gains in analytics and dashboard reporting in the last few releases which when used in tandem with custom fields can be quite useful.

The biggest selling point and also the biggest difficulty (for our business model) is the adaptive scheduling which uses ranged estimates to automatically schedule resources across multiple projects. This works really well IF LiquidPlanner is up to date, and IF everyone is a full time resource. Using it with contractors who have limited or variable availability has been a little tough since there is no way to model this across time. There is a setting to adjust availability by day of week, but as a reoccurring standard (as in, someone always only has 4 hours on Friday). User adoption is really key to getting the full value of the software - more than with other products in my experience.

It doesn't stand alone like an MS Project, so it is not necessarily great for external, client-facing uses. There are portals to bring external team members in, but there has been less advance on that front than in the dashboards/analytics in recent releases. It does have a robust commenting feature which is often more convenient than emailing since it keeps all of that conversation with the task, hours, estimates, etc in one place.

The team at LiquidPlanner is extremely responsive, though. They take in suggestions and actually act on them. They respond to support requests quickly and thoroughly. It is a very high standard of customer service on that front.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the product to someone looking for a well-supported, innovative project management solution for teams that work only internally and with full time resources.

Comments: I think that LP is very user intuitive and easy to use. It's widgets / notifications make it easy for my team to log their time and leave comments under tasks that they have questions on. We love the 'duplication' of tasks feature as this helps us build out schedules / timelines with accuracy and ease.

Pros: Ease of use, intuitiveness

Cons: If you are on a task marked 'work in order' you see the task in 'My Work' even though you are not the current person (i.e. people before you have not marked themselves 'done'). Can you set 'My Work' to normally only show tasks where you are currently active? You could allow the user to set the filters to see all tasks they are on, in case they would like to see tasks where they are not yet active.

Overall: If a task has multiple people on it, is set to 'work in order', everyone sees the Task in their 'My Work'. But if the person(s) before you on that task have not marked themselves 'done' you should not start on your portion of the task. Can you not show these tasks until you are the active worker on the task? You could add a capability in the filters to turn this off, just in case someone is searching for tasks that they are on but are not currently with them.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are on a task marked 'work in order' you see the task in 'My Work' even though you are not the current person (i.e. people before you have not marked themselves 'done'). Can you set 'My Work' to normally only show tasks where you are currently active? You could allow the user to set the filters to see all tasks they are on, in case they would like to see tasks where they are not yet active.

Pros: The way it lays out my daily tasks for the day

Cons: The order of tasks sometimes is not in order of when they are due, for some reason.

Overall: Our shop has been using Liquid Planner for about 2 years, and so far, it is working well. For me, I use it when the project managers of my team get a job, and then need to communicate to me all the details so that I can produce. It is helpful how I can track my time, and write any notes that I need to keep for future reference. I also use it for keeping track of ordering supplies.
