Design professionals can get projects schedules, project deliverables due dates and staffing assignments & budgets in Outlook

Planifi automates some of the most common Manager communication topics by automatically providing staff with the information they need to know, what's their budget, what they've spent and when are the Deliverables are due. Staff can see Deliverables that Manager assign to them, as well as what projects they are scheduled to work on each week, how many hours they're scheduled to work that week and their actual budget and spent for that assignment. Managers also benefit, by having their project schedules and deliverable due dates at their finger-tips.


Planifi supports a variety of firm workflows, from Discipline budgeting and management within project and staffing plans, to staffing requests forms Discipline leads or even staff can make that are approved and added to plans after approval, and personal weekly staff assignment views that staff can edit if they have permission.

Discipline budgets can be created per phase with budgeted hours and dollars, that is shown side-by-side with actual charges to the project by staff assigned to that discipline. No need to create extra structure or codes to manage discipline budgets.

Design Professionals can make their own staffing requests that are approved by Managers

Firms have different workflows and managers are often busy, so Planifi allows staff to make the staffing request that a manager can approve later. This can greatly improve the accuracy of Staffing and Project Performance Forecasting by keeping your project plans up to date.

Allows staff to manage their own weekly schedules if permitted.

With Planifi's Edit & View My Assignments Permission, staff can manage their weekly schedules within the context of their individual project budget assigned to them by the PM or Discipline Lead.
