Additionally, all of the schedules will automatically appear in the planner and from the planner, you can directly access the map to see the whole project.
Now, you can integrate ideation and execution. Schedules from any different project maps will show in the planner, and schedule entries from the planner will appear in the connect project map. If you want to view the entire project, view in the project map. If you want to view a project in more detailed timescales, view it in the planner. By easily moving perspectives from whole to detailed part, you can be sure to complete your project with success.
