Hugh,
Thanks for being a customer. We appreciate your business.

Good point, there are definitely use cases that SheetPlanner is better suited for and vice versa but we do plan to keep enhancing SheetPlanner such that its use cases expand and it becomes a key application for many types of user data.

In the 2.0 release where we allow users to organize multiple sheets in a single document you will see the start of this journey as people centralize multiple outlines and later other types of data….
