Choose your Excel back-planning template
Even today, some use relatively “classic” tools such as Microsoft Excel or Gantt Project for their planning issues. The SOPlanning project was born from observations linked to several years of experience in supporting companies. As a professional, planning and managing resources – whether human or material – needs to be optimized to bring more flexibility to your day-to-day lives and boost your productivity.
The software has been designed to take into account the daily reality of project managers and their uses to go beyond the practices made possible by traditional platforms. The operation of the tool is simple and all the information that is communicated to you is clear, so you do not waste time configuring it.
More flexibility in your organization
The goal of SOPlanning is not to “add” an additional tool to the ones you already have, but to bring together on one platform all the features that show interest in project management, all with a very simple operation. However, it is obvious that tools such as Microsoft Excel have undeniable advantages and that their complementary use with a planning management interface can be very relevant. It is for this reason that SOPlanning adapts its operation to these uses. For example, if you used to use Excel tables to manage your planning or the monitoring of your projects, it is quite possible to use them through SOPlanning by simply importing them on the platform. You do not have to enter your data again or start from scratch when using your tools. In a few minutes, you can access your data directly on SOPlanning.
If you wish, you can also opt for “Excel” retro-planning templates available on the platform. Once the appropriate model is chosen, you have the structure and you just have to modify it and adapt it according to your needs. These models can be very useful in the conduct of your projects. They allow to break down the main objectives in order to benefit from a complete visibility on the tasks to be accomplished and the resources to be allocated. Deadlines are indicated for each deliverable even when projects are relatively large.
With SOPlanning, you can also create Gantt charts. This tool, which makes it possible to plan projects in time and by tasks, is today very widely used within the framework of the project management. Find this feature within your platform that includes the management of milestones and the addition of successive steps. Your schedule has a printable version that you can share with your collaborators or display in your office to give it more visibility. Whether it is the “classic” retro-planning or the Gantt chart, these tools are particularly suitable for managing large-scale projects and managing large teams.
