apparently you can't use this software without creating an account. Why is that? I purchased it legally but need to hand over my phone number?? Makes no sense.

Just a heads up to anyone considering this product. This company has one of the most customer unfriendly policies I have encountered and I figure I should alert potential users before they waste their money like I did. I purchased a license to this software in a bundle and installed it on my then production laptop. Over the holidays I purchased a potential replacement laptop. I did a full backup and restore to the potential replacement to check it out. I had to move certain licenses or install a second license of various software. I decided not to keep that unit and got another one. Same thing with moving licenses around. I got a better deal on a third laptop in early January so same thing; full backup, full restore. I do not really use this software but decided to try it out and the license would not activate. I contacted the company and they reset the license. Great I thought. Then later in January I received one of the new 2016 MacBook Pro units and again moved my production backup to it. Same issue with this software. I again contacted them and they informed me that they did me a favor last time to ALLOW me to move the license I paid for from one unit to another. I repeated my request and it was escalated within the company and the end result was:

Unfortunately, we will not be able to reset the activation. We did it once as an exception but, it cannot be done again as it is against the policy.

Thanks and Regards,

App Support

Needless to say I am quite annoyed at this very customer unfriendly policy so I figured I should let various potential customers know. I have over 150 apps installed on my production machine and none of them are pirated. I pay for the software I use. The vast majority of them allow multiple installs on any units I personally own. If they don't, they provide a way to move a license to another unit by deactivating it first on the old unit and then re-activating it on the new. All great policies and easily accomplished by caring and considerate software companies.

Yeah, it sounds odd to me too. Bad enough we all have to provide email addresses to receive license keys, but I guess nowadays people are using those temporary/disposal email addresses, so I reckon the developer is being frightened off by the standard email registration process. Still, phone number or email address, a developer can never know who is on the other end when requesting a re-send of license keys. Maybe one day we will need to send a DNA test to confirm it really is us who bought the software.

Speaking of Gantt Charts, I have noticed this is based on the free JavaScript JSGantt.js (improved version), which incidentally you can download and run on your own browser. The only tricky bit is how to add the data for javascript to draw up the chart properly. And yes, you can modify its design, although I see the developer has kept it very much as in the original (with only very minor tweaks). Not bad for a cool $35 a pop so long as users don't know about where he got it from.

However, if you don't want to go through the complications of adding data to the free javascript file, and hate the idea of an account and phone number, I suggest you give SUNRISE Contacts 2018 a bit of a whirl. It just so happens to have a Gantt Chart based on this javascript solution. And it is really easy to add calendar items/tasks (organised into subject, and categories --- so subject could be name of the client or contractors/subcontractors, and categories are the task names, then Regarding field for each calendar item can provide more details). Once you have the calendar items ready, go under SUNRISE Contacts menu-->Calendar Extras-->Gantt Chart. The same looking chart is created for you. And as far as accounts are concerned, there are none. Zilch, nada! The way software should be without constantly going online to login to practically every software you use.

NOTE: I'm not a developer of the product, but I like it when things are free (but happy to pay when I see good and original stuff get created that work well).
