Hi all,

I added a couple of screenshots of the Timeline view which has just come out of development.

Peter—looks cool.  Also looks a lot like a “standard” project planning tool—MS Project, Merlin Project.  I don’t see anything in the screen shot that I cannot do in MS Project.  (Believe me, MS Project is execrable, so anything can be better than it.)

So help us understand the difference between what you’re building and what’s already out there in the market?

Those two screenshots yesterday give it a very PM Flavor….so I can see what you mean.

...however thats just one side of the app.

The app has 3 major components. Outliner with standard and custom columns. Timeline View. Calendar View. We will add other view types in later versions.

There are powerful filters and the ability to link to files in your filesystem and view them in tabs.

Speaking of tabs, you can have as many as you want and each tab can have its own combination of outline, timeline, calendar.

The tabs are not different documents but different views of the same document. This means for example you could have an entire outline in one tab and filtered list in another (like for example a list of items due in a particular week or day or whatever you can think of that you can specify in a filter).

I have to think about the marketing for the product and have not really done so yet. Right now I think of it in terms of a tool to organize, plan and then act upon your projects and todo’s.

Its also document rather than database based, so the documents are portable. You might choose to use individual documents for separate projects or purposes.

I think the best way to think about it is that its a multipurpose information management tool. A bit like ECCO.

Hope this helps.

Sounds more than “a bit” like ECCO, which makes me very happy. Nothing since 1997 has come close.

Am I correct that SheetPlanner will allow me to save multiple tabs, each of which shows a different filtered view of the same data, much like the Notepads in Ecco?

2nd question: one of the (many) best features of Ecco was that in a Dropdown Column, I could select more than one dropdown value for any item. Will I be able to do that for SheetPlanner?

Thanks much - can’t wait to try this out.
