Tip: The best way to keep your LiquidPlanner project schedule accurate is to enter ranged estimates for your work. This starts at the task level, where you enter your estimations based on best and worst case scenarios. Give yourself time to select ranges that you can confidently stand behind. Once you’ve entered estimates on all your project tasks, the LiquidPlanner scheduling engine calculates a bunch of data and gives you a final ranged estimate for when your project is likely to be complete.

The ability to capture and manage uncertainty is what makes LP different, and what allows you to have confidence in your project dates. Use it and prosper! Learn more about estimating in ranges by watching this video:
