What do you like best?

The use of this Excel template provided by Vertex42 allows you to create Gantt diagrams or project schedules in a very simple way, not only because it is a tool as well known as Excel, but it is very easy to use.

What do you dislike?

Disadvantages? For more complete or complicated activities of creation, monitoring and project management, you may need a more complete tool, such as Microsoft Project. It requires knowing, at least in basic matters, the use of the Excel tool or the Google Drive spreadsheet. It does not have much security in the data, unless the features provided by Excel are used.

"Love the experience of plan define and critic activities for people and environment"

What do you like best?

The template brings a simple solution when I design an environmental plan, so I can define each one of the activities, analyze the critic path of the execution time of the plan, through those activities depending on a previous execution. The Gantt chart gives me an time estimated of a project duration for my plan execution, is very important when I used to work with different scenarios and specialties on the technical and environmental aspects of the projects, and needs to work together.

What do you dislike?

I really only used the Gantt chart for the time estimation, because is a very important estimation, but Is only a data request, then I need to estimate the cost of each activity planned on the Gantt chart, and needs to be done on a different document. Therefore, for planning issues is better is I have all in only one document, and just called for the time estimation and the cost estimation charts, both associated in the project duration time. This improvement would be an invaluable tool for all of us.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The Gantt chart templates are a great tool in the planning services because gives us a simplified tool to show to our customers the time of implementation the environmental services designed and also I could show the time of nature recovery once the implementation are initiated. All these tools bring the customers not only the image for final expectations but also the time we need to do so. So I recommend to used this template and give a chance, is very simple and intuitive.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I create certain activities in a Gantt Chart to estimate environmental impact projects in the project, Centro Comercial Caraballeda, Estado Vargas, with lots of activities and critic path for the works. And creating the time estimated for the modifications of the environment projects, allowing create specifics works related to protect the environment, at Juegos Deportivos de la Juventud 2021, Estado Miranda. I think about an easy tool to give my customers a time related activities duration for the completion of a environmental project.

Is very simple to use and very intuitive, also is very easy to program, that gives the template a plus.

What do you dislike?

It could be a improvement to insert some lines for the costs for any activities, sort of relation about the office daily cost and the improve for better performance, that might be called balance, this could be consider a great tool for any contractor anywhere. Sometimes Gantt Chart templates are not compatible with the printers we use in the office, so we usually try more bigger formats, but I would like to ask about a better way to present this templates for example in a presentation.

"Excel Gnatt Chart - A perfect project tracking tool"

What do you like best?

It is a very effective project tracking tool. Also, they've a very good customer services. Besides, it is very easy to use. A little exploration for a while will help you understand it quite well. Plus they also have good tutorials on the Gantt chart.

What do you dislike?

It can sometimes look very complex and hard to understand. And the fact that the entire sheet doesn't fit in one page makes it hard to use, especially when you've have to keep using the sliders every time you want to access the rest half of it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a perfect for low to medium project. Doesn't have any monthly charges which makes it less expensive compared to the others. Multiple features makes it an attractive tool to use. The company also customized the template according to the way we needed it. So, this is another reason as to why you should be using it. Also, the tool makes it very easy to share XLSM.

"Convient Templates"

What do you like best?

I like that all the formulas are built into the excel template. Also the templates are available in different industries. Most recently I have used the amortization schedule. These tools are easy to read, and help answer difficult questions without spending hours researching the topic.

What do you dislike?

The templates can be very difficult to customize. In one case I wanted to add my companies logo to the spreadsheet. The template made this very difficult. I would focus on making this more user friendly.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Use this tool to save time, and maximize your offering!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have saved time, and energy using these templates. My time can then be used doing something else. I have been able to use this to increase my reputation at work, and use these templates to answer difficult questions I have personally. Recently I used the templates to make a budgeting spreadsheet. I used this spreadsheet to determine how much we were spending on a wedding, and how much we could afford on a future home.

"Simpleton's Gantt Chart"

What do you like best?

How easy it is for anybody to set up this tool in excel. It's probably one of the simplest tools out there (used the free version). It is limited on what it is capable of, but for most projects it should be able to do what's needed for a standard gantt chart. There's a few demos or examples you can download on the website as well, so it's even easier to get started using this. The examples can clearly lay out everything you'll need for a gantt chart.

What do you dislike?

It's for excel, I would prefer it to be a separate kind of program, but most companies use excel for planning or data in general, so it is a fair program of choice.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want a simple tool to use for excel and dont have the time to whip up your own solution or macro to make a gantt chart, this is definitely the tool for you. There's quite a few other tools out there for use and each have their own quirks, but this proves to be a lightweight tool on its own.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simple business planning and engineering planning. Instead of using a physical chart or manual updating, making a gantt chart that can easily be modified eases a few burdens.

"The best software to use when a Gantt chart is required"

What do you like best?

I like the best the fact that I can easily compare my first Gantt chart so the initial one at the beginning of my projects with the final Gantt chart. In this way I am able to see and analyse where did I missed my timeline and not respecting my daily tasks. Also, which steps were the most challenging ones.

What do you dislike?

Every time I used this software, everything was fine so I do not really have any disappointments in using this software. Maybe it would help out to have more extensions types when saving the file like an Excel, but overall is great.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Project planning and timeline tracking. The benefits are realised in getting the products launched faster therefore increasing the sales therefore increasing the company's budgets.
