Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi There,

I'm wondering what's available as far as free/cheap P6 comparison reports. I developed a free P6 comparison report (jobsessions.com/tool/compare) that compares the changes between two files and I'm wondering what else is out there that shows the changes between two files and performs quality checks.

Anything come to mind? Much appreciated,

Pat

Hey Alex, 

Can you email me the files that you are using so I can take a look at them? If you're having an issue generating the report, I'd like to figure it out and get it resolved. My email is pat@jobsessions.com.

Thanks for letting me know you are having an issue!

Pat

Patrick,

your tool doex not work at all on my MS Windows 10 French PC; after 2 trials this morning, the only response I have got is the following e-mail from no-reply@jobsessions.com:

"Sorry, but the schedule comparison report you recently initiated failed... Please try again..."

It's rather disappointing!

Hi Patrick,

This is simply awesome! Our team has been using Schedule Comparison and it is slow, prevents the user from doing concurrent work in P6, and the .csv output is difficult to navigate. Yours is a breeze and the quality checks are really useful. And no I am not aware of any free P6 comparison reports out there like yours. *thumbs up*

Hey Pat

FREE NO !

There are a lot of commercial ones sone of them I have and have paid for.

I think yours does a lot of things that the others do and I applaud you for giving this away for free instead of trying to make a buck or two on it.

This craft and industry need more people like you and I who are will to contribute and help to promote it. 

Thanks Again
