Sorry, $20.

Hmmm - not sure what happened to my last post. Hopefully this isn’t a duplicate.

I decided to buy Sheetplanner.

I don’t see much I can do with OmniOutliner that I can’t do with Sheetplanner, using Sheetplanner as an outliner. I can set styles on the levels of an outline. I can filter and hoist/unhoist. Sheetplanner doesn’t have tags, but neither does OO. In both cases, that isn’t a killer, since you can add columns.

As I outline, I can also get a draft timeline.

Sheetplanner will export to OPML, which Pandoc will convert to docx. Just like OO, I can go from an outline to a word processing document. The document ends up with proper heading styles, matching the levels of the outline.

Sheetplanner will also export to CSV, which Aeon Timeline will import. If I include columns for participant and observer, Aeon’s grid view will end up filled out, too.

Sheetplanner’s data is stored in JSON files. Easy to extract. If Sheetplanner goes away (I hope not) I can still get my data.

In the future, when Sheetplanner gains repeating tasks, I could see letting my OmniFocus subscription expire.

Your mileage, of course, may vary. I’m just starting to use Sheetplanner, but it looks very nice for my usage.

Amontillado,

Thank you. This is one hell of an endorsement and SheetPlanner is only going to get better. The roadmap is incredible.

Cheers!
Peter

Is it possible to turn off the checkboxes in SheetPlanner? If so, I can’t figure it out.

Drewster,
Yes. Click in a topic cell, open the inspector and there is a setting under column for checkbox, pie or hidden.
Thanks,
Peter
