Planner is a project management tool which supports Gantt charts, resource allocation and integration with other GNOME applications.
Its goal is to be an easy-to-use no-nonsense cross-platform project management application. It can store its data in either XML files or in a PostgreSQL database. Projects can also be printed to PDF or exported to HTML for easy viewing from any web browser. Included in the HTML document is a simplified Gantt chart, task list (with %complete, start, end, work, and resource columns), and a resource allocation table. It is an excellent way to give people easy access to project status information.
The MS Project XML import is new and considered experimental. Microsoft Project version 2002 and above supports saving project files in XML format.
Planner was formerly known as Imendio Planner.
