Ada Enechi used to work for a company that created team schedules on Excel. Any time Ada had to update the schedule, she had to re-save a document and send it to the team. When she transferred to a new company that used Toggl Plan, she discovered how easy it was to use. The simple project planning software solved problems she had when she was using Excel.

After trying several planning tools, they chose Toggl Plan for its client-friendly view, team management tools, and built-in collaboration features.
Why Toggl Plan
Toggl Plan is a simple project planning tool with more power than a spreadsheet and easier to use than a Gantt chart. It provides two important perspectives. For every task, you will know who is working on which tasks and its status. Also, for every team member, you will know what they are working on and when they are available for more work. Easily switch from these views to get an overview of the project timeline, how it is progressing, and what the team should work on next.
Toggl Plan, formerly known as Teamweek, is a fully remote, privately held software company with head office in Tallin, Estonia. It began as a side project for internal use at Toggl, which now offers Toggl Track for time tracking, Toggl Hire for candidate screening, and Toggl Plan. Founded in 2007, Alari Aho and Krister Haav started a software consultancy company. As clients and projects grew, they created a time tracking tool that allowed them to give their clients reports on time spent. Every time the company faced productivity challenges where there was no existing tool, they built one for themselves, which is how Toggl Plan came about.
