A major advantage of Visual Planning is that you can share and work on plans and schedules in real time. This allows you to have 2 or 2,000 (+) users working on the same planner. It also allows for these users to be located at a single site, at multiple sites or working away, anywhere.
Data can be set to update every minute, 5 minutes, hour, etc. and can be manually updated at any time, simply press the refresh button.
No more need to worry if you have the latest version of a spreadsheet, or if you have advised a colleague of recent updates, Visual Planning simply communicates all changes, to all users.
