Already experienced with an earlier version of Planner?

Many of you will have already been familiar with an earlier version of Planner and we have worked hard to make sure that the basics remain the same as we include the many new features users have been asking for.

With over two and a half hours of training here most people won’t want to plough through it all so if you are upgrading from version 3.0 we would encourage you to watch the overview then use sessions 4, 5, 6, 11 and 14 which is where most of the new capabilities lie.

Of course the more you know the more you will get from your free Planning software so why not work your way through them one a day and soon you will be making your Planner sing!
