I signed up for a free 30 - day trial and I had only entered two days worth of assignments before I decided to go ahead and buy a subscription. Scheduling takes so much less time now And when life happens, rescheduling is easier, too.

My daughter likes being able to check off completed assignments and to see what's coming up. I won't go back to a pen and paper planner ever again.

We have only been on the Planet for two weeks now, and quite frankly I'm not sure how we got along without it! Now that I have middle school-ers with in depth assignments, I noticed last year that I was often the hurdle holding them back. If life threw a curve ball, and I got behind in lesson planning, they were waiting on me, and I hated that feeling. This year, they can clearly see what they need to do, check it off, check in when they need help, and (I can always hope!) see what lies ahead should they wish to get ahead. Wow! What a tool. At ...(more)

I used another fully featured product for over a year and, while it met my needs, i felt it over-complicated and not as intuitive as Homeschool Planet. Planet's clean interface is also ATTRACTIVE, I look forward to seeing the beautiful graphics and colors. It may seem trivial, but anything that encourages me in my homeschooling has value. I appreciate that Planet's developers are continuously upgrading and debugging their product. And while I haven't contacted them myself yet, I have read that product support is great. I believe I have found th...(more)

I am a homeschooling mom of four (two elementary and two high school kids). I have tried a few different methods and programs to help with lesson planning and calendar management and have not been able to find anything that could "do it all"...until Homeschool Planet. I signed up for the free trial with all the skepticism of one who believes that no product is all it claims to be. Well, this product is all it claims. I couldn't believe how easy it was to enter assignments and move them around as needed. It makes grading a cinch. It allows...(more)

Now that I have the option to check the schedule from my iPad and phone-with an app-plus the emails to my family, this homeschool planner is priceless!

I searched everywhere on the internet, then found Homeschool Planet. It's just what I needed. It's very easy to use and looks great. Setting my kids profiles up was simple and quick. I love how easy it is to reschedule skipped lessons.

Whenever there's a problem (which is rare) the techs get right on it. Also, whenever I have a question or suggestion, they reply to my emails very quickly. This was definitely worth every penny.

Has been a life savor including most of our lesson plans were on the purchase and download directly into the planner. It has saved me so much time and work. The planner is very easy to use. Highly Recommended!

This homeschool planner is the first I've used in 15 years of homeschooling which provides flexibility and all the functions I need in one product. I love that it allows me to give repeating instructions as well as special assignments. We've even used it to send text and email alerts about family events or to-do items to our college-age children, and it updates my husband on our schedule. Within an hour of installing it, I had our entire family and school year set up. The first few weeks of school are usually full of small changes, and it a...(more)

I love Homeschool-Planet! I have tried several computer based homeschool planners over the years but this is by far the best. It is very user friendly and is quick to learn and navigate. It doesn't include an overabundance of features that make it complicated. Other computer planners take so long to learn to navigate that I always felt like I wasn't getting any planning done.

My teens love having their assignments emailed to them everyday. My favorite feature is the grading and rescheduling helper. When I log in it pops right up letting...(more)

I've been using Homeschool-Planet for the last month which included setting up our new school year for my 4 children grades 2-9, and I'm so pleased!

I have used several other online schedulers and this is by far the easiest and most comprehensive to use. The children are having no trouble using it and are enjoying have their own logins. They can even enter their own courses into their own schedules and can therefore take more responsibility for their learning. Due to the complex nature of other programs we've used this wasn't possible ...(more)
