I have found it so easy to be organized with this program. Seeing as this is an area I have struggled in for a long time,I can honestly say I love it. I believe it has the ability to grow with my family's needs and I am a lifer for sure. Thanks Homeschool- Planet.

This has been the one most helpful product that we have used this year! It helps my student to be able to mark off work that is complete, and also I am able to put links to other work that needs to be done online that he can just go to from the calendar. It is also very helpful in helping my husband know exactly what we are doing and when we are doing it. Both of us have trouble remembering to tell each other things, so this has really helped us to be able to keep track of each others schedules.

This is something that I will be continui...(more)

Homeschool Planet is the homeschool organizing tool I have been looking for since I stated homeschooling 5 years ago! After using excel spreadsheets, online and paper calenders, Homeschool Planet has everyone beat.

I love that I can schedule not just homeschooling activities but other family activities that are important to me and my husband. The text feature for shopping and To Do lists is an awesome organizing tool.

I won't use another online homeschooling tool!

I just wanted to say that I LOVE Homeschool Planet! I am a working and homeschooling mother of six and this has been the ultimate tool in keeping my family organized. It is very easy to use and I can create my lesson plans weeks to months in advance with very little time and effort. I have tried other computer planners in the past, but ended up not following through with them. Being able to print a check list for each child is great and the widgets are an added bonus. I will absolutely be purchasing this program after my free trial! Thanks aga...(more)
Ashley T., Co-op Member
I'm still in the middle of the trial period for this software. My kids are really too young to have use of the software themselves for scheduling. However, I've found it very user-friendly, organized, and intuitive--it's the kind of program I would have written for myself if I had the skills and time. :) I am planning to continue to use it and pay for the service--it really does make planning easier. My husband and my father-in-law, both computer programmer/ analysts, were thoroughly impressed with the software also. Highly recommended!!

I love this planner. This is my second year. It makes it easy for me to stay organized. I also love that I can add different profiles and send updates to their emails and phones. Thanks for such a great product
Mrs. Kobe, Co-op Member
I just wanted to say thank you for producing this program. While I'm still learning how to do everything its been super easy to set up and get going with it. I don't have a lot of time so that's a huge plus for me. I will be recommending it to those I know. Thanks again. TL

Homeschool Planet has changed my Sunday nights! What used to take hours with lots of back and forth typing, flipping between books, printing and reprinting...now takes less than 30 minutes for me to update lessons for 4 kids! My favorite feature is the diverse choices for rescheduling. The ability to make a big plan but know that I can tweak the schedule along the way if needed (and it always is!). No more cutting and pasting! It was a no brainer after my trial month - I was hooked and have my whole year mapped out on Homeschool Planet now...(more)
CEA, Co-op Member
Love Homeschool Planet! It has made planning for our homeschool year so easy and took the stress of planning away. Unexpected changes to our schedule are no problem. Changes are so easy to implement. You can split assignments or merge them. If you miss a day, it will shuffle all your assignments forward. We print up the kids daily assignments so they know exactly what they need to do each day.
Sue Humes, Co-op Member
This is an amazing tool. I can keep our lesson plans, our family calendar, to do lists, grocery lists, and chores all in one convenient location. I never have to try and remember, "Where did I write that down?" I can also access the information from my phone if I am away from the computer. I print the kids' chore lists and lesson plans out each morning and they know exactly what needs to be done without asking a dozen times. I will be using Homeschool-Planet for quite some time.
