  • Easy

    By builderdawg
    The number 1 requirement for any construction / plans management software is ease of use. It doesn’t get any easier than PlanGrid. I have non-tech savvy superintendents using it with no problems or kick back.
  • Great, but not for small businesses

    By Ram20007
    We really enjoyed using PlanGrid for the time that it was free, but once it became a subscription only app ($39-$119/month depending on number of users), it was no longer financially feasible or compatible for our small firm (2-5 staff).
  • Program renames pictures and extraction is lacking.

    By lrosstal
    I’m going to start off with Brittany, she is very professional, everyone on the customer service side seems to care. I have paid for this program for over two years, and over the last two months the program has not worked properly, when attempting to extract pictures in the order they were taken, offline. I informed Plan Grid of this issue in June, and as of the 1st of August this is still not working. Customer service has done their best to help, but it is still not working. When I pay for a program I expect it work. For a program that requires subscription like Plan Grid, the company should be willing to prorate the subscription, when the program is not functioning. I won’t be returning which is disappointing.
  • For blue prints? Ugh yeah right

    By Juiliard
    Maybe this is for construction people, I was just trying to create a blueprint for the house I building. Mid leading and EXTREMELY annoying. Can’t believe anyone would pay for this
  • This used to be great. Now it’s highway robbery

    By Jabo (Swift Cloud)
    “As of April 23rd, we expired our free Hammer plan to focus all of our development and support efforts on the needs of our paying customers. This allows us to continue growing and innovating as the most effective and efficient construction productivity platform. You would need to upgrade your license to continue using PlanGrid.” The fact that you no longer offer the free version of your service is awful. It’s too bad, because I really enjoyed the functionality of PlanGrid. I am running a very small business, and I cannot afford a $49.99 per month charge. I do not need more than 50 sheets per month because I don’t get that many projects. Therefore, I have deleted the app and I am currently in search of another app developer that can provide me with the product I need. I think it is a terrible and greedy decision to take away the free (under 50 sheets) service from your app. I think you should have still offered the free service and charged maybe a one-time fee if my only intention was to use the free service. It’s too bad. Another great American business turned to corporate greed in attempt to secure as much as it can of the all-mighty dollar from every hard working citizen. This move may help you companies profits increase, but you integrity level has decreased in my opinion.
  • Almost Great, Completely Suffient

    By Gingrai
    With a few tweaks it would be perfect but don’t wait for perfection, it is great how it is. Here are my recommendations: 1. Bring back a limited plan that can be used for Collaborators only, people who need access to the information but who cannot interact or push markups to the master set. 2. Allow full administrative privileges from the app. There are many times when I am not near my laptop but I need to add a sheet or to perform some other function. The browser support on the iPad used to work but it no longer does and I cannot administer through the app. 3. Allow for templates to be used for creating projects. We don’t use the default issues list and have a standard folder structure for the documents. We have to create these each time we open a new project. 4. Allow for a forced review of comments that are added to in the settings tab. The way things are currently, comments are made but do not need to be acknowledged... working in construction, I promise you nobody looks for them:-) I would like the option to post comments that have to be acknowledged before proceeding... with this feature I would have confidence to use the comments as a tool. 5. Allow for issues reports to be customized so that only certain colors or issue types can be sent. Filtering issues doesn’t stop all of the issues from being sent. There are times, many times... most of the times that I don’t want all the issues to be sent with the issues report. The same would be good for the other reports. I would like to be able to send only certain color markups or markup types. 6. Allow for batch editing of jobs for example: removing from account, setting them to be managed by a different organization or adding or removing users. Right now these only can be don one job at a time... if an employee leaves or is terminated, we have to remove them from each job individually and this is very tedious. 7. When taking pictures with the feature allowing annotations, there is a problem that makes the program run slow when too much writing is added to the picture... it gets bogged down. Also, add an undo button to this feature so that a mistake does not require a fresh start.
  • Awesome Program

    By utahutesrule77
    We couldn’t run our business without this tool. Absolutely essential to our organization.
  • Unbelievably hysterical

    By Thorbergilofth
    You can tell by the words used that the reviews are written by creators or their friends, the prices are ridiculous and this is just the overall funny app everyone else is entitled to their opinion but this is crazy
  • Fast, intuitive but has limitations with collaboration with subs

    By Pete0148
    Fast, intuitive but has limitations with collaboration with subs unless they purchase a full license.
  • Terrible

    By disappointed in pkan grid
    My architect sent me plans for my house that I built 3 years ago. I would occasional show plans to my friends and praise plan-grid. I don’t really use it, just show people plans of the house already built. Recently plan grid has a bright idea:let’s charge everybody 49.99 a month !! Makes sense to charge popper for an active construction project, makes no sense for people who just want to keep a few pages for historical reasons. I will be uninstall my plan grid.
