Have questions? You’ve come to the right place. Check out the FAQ for PlanITPDQ Editorial Calendar Software.
How come PlanITPDQ is free?
PlanITPDQ is in beta, and we are still making tweaks before we do a commercial launch. We have not set that date, but we have made a commitment to all users who sign up for a beta account: you will receive a lifetime discount on PlanITPDQ for being among the first. Thank you to those who have signed up, and to everyone else, g’head, start an account! In exchange, we’d welcome any feedback – good and bad.
Beta? That sounds risky. Why should I build my editorial calendar on a beta product?
There obviously is risk in using any online software application, including PlanITPDQ. That’s why we created a feature where you can download your editorial calendar in .csv format. You can import that into Excel, Google Sheets, or any other database that reads .csv files. We strongly suggest that you do this frequently so that you always have a backup of your work.
I’m building an editorial calendar for my company. How many people can view it and work on it?
There are no limits to the number of collaborators you can have in PlanITPDQ. We believe that marketing is a team sport, and want to encourage you to have everyone on the same page. Invite away!
I want to make multiple PlanITs. How many can I create?
Right now there are no limits – we want people to use PlanITPDQ and come up with new ideas on how to make it useful. At some point we will create tiered subscription levels, but for now, go nuts.
Can I customize my PlanIT?
Yes. PlanITPDQ opens with a set framework of Categories, but you can add, change, and delete them at any time. The first iteration of PlanITPDQ organized your Categories in the order you created them. But now you can re-order the Categories in any way you’d like.
Can I link PlanITPDQ with another calendar?
Yes, you can add any .ics file to your PlanIT! Simply edit your PlanIT and add a Calendar channel. Follow these instructions.
I have some suggestions – how do I share them?
I need help setting up my PlanIT.
Check out the How To page on PlanITPDQ.com. There are lots of documents and a couple of videos that walk you through all of the features. Or just shoot us an email and we’ll set up a time for a screen share. We’ll get you going in no time.
I can’t get Google Analytics to connect on my PlanIT. What am I doing wrong?
First of all, check to make sure that you are an authorized user of the Google Analytics account: login to analytics.google.com. If you can’t access analytics for the website you’re trying to track then you need to ask the site owner for permission. If you can, you’re authorized. Check your Settings in the upper right hand corner of the menu bar of PlanITPDQ.app. If you have more than one Gmail address or Google Analytics account, you might have inadvertently disconnected from the one you want. Simply reconnect and start again. If that doesn’t work, just shoot us an email and we’ll help you troubleshoot it.
