Frequently Asked Questions
Do all my Salesforce users require an Inspire Planner license?
No, users need a license if they need access to any data related to Inspire Planner. We recommend licenses for anyone who needs the following:
- Create or manage projects
- Will have project tasks assigned
- Need access to reports and dashboards
Non-Inspire Planner users can still be assigned project tasks, which will result in standard Salesforce tasks, but they won’t see all the details without a license. Such users will have very limited project collaboration capabilities.
For example, the users without a license won’t be able to participate in Chatter collaboration, access shared files, log time for their tasks, see task dependencies, or any custom fields related to Inspire Planner. That is why we strongly recommend all project collaborators have a license.
Do external contacts require an Inspire Planner license to view projects?
No, in order to view projects in our External Project Portal, your external contacts do not need Salesforce or Inspire Planner licenses. On top of being able to view your project in real-time, your external contacts can also update the status of their tasks, edit actual effort, and leave a comment for your project manager. Through this fully secure portal, you can share projects with an unlimited number of external contacts, while all your data stays in Salesforce.
If you need your external contacts to have full access to all the functionality of Inspire Planner, then you can use a paid Salesforce Community and purchase Inspire Planner licenses for such contacts.
Does Inspire Planner offer onboarding help?
Yes, we have a required Standard Onboarding package. We also have a full professional services team that can help with any sort of additional customization, or guidance, on a per-hour basis. Please see the details here.
What kind of support does Inspire Planner offer?
Standard support is included in the license fee. It includes unlimited email help tickets, unlimited access to Inspire Planner Training Resources, as well as access to the Inspire Planner User Community.
Inspire Planner also offers two premium Customer Success plans, which include priority help ticket routing, support & diagnostics for extended configuration and development, assigned customer success manager, custom release schedule, and more.
