With RationalPlan Multi Project you can have all your company projects and resources in one place. Not just that you can create dependencies between tasks from different projects but more important, you can share resources hence you will be able to track a resource's overallocation state over multiple projects. The Project Portfolio view will help to get an overview of all your projects.
The Project Viewer is freely distributed for everyone to see the content of a project in the most flexible manner
and not just as printed reports. It can be very useful especially for resources and stakeholders.
A powerful feature is that it can import Microsoft Project files which makes it a free viewer for Microsoft Project too.
RationalPlan should run on any Java enabled platform. However we offer distributions that were fully tested for all Windows platforms and for Mac OS X 10.4 or higher (.exe, respectively .dmg installers). For all other platforms we deliver a binary .zip distribution but we are open to any package distribution request.
First of all, it is not exactly a registration process of the trial version. If after using our Single Project or Multi Project trial you have decided that RationalPlan is what you need all you have to do is to purchase a full version. You will then receive download links for the full version and a license key file. After downloading them all you have to do is to install the full version, run and unlock it with the received file. The trial version is not needed anymore.
NOTE: The license key file itself unlocks the application and not its content so don't try to open the file and read it.
Sure, simply put your .xrp file on a shared network so all interested people can see it. Once a user will open it with Single or Multi version, the file will be locked during the working session to prevent file's corruption. That means another user won't be able to open the file unless is using RationalPlan Viewer.
Our suite of project management software is designed to reach various needs from managing independent projects for individuals or small firms with our RationalPlan Single Project, to managing multiple related projects with shared resources for medium companies with RationalPlan Multi Project.
