Pros: I find this to be one of the best services. It offers some of the best high quality elements that are available and you can use this for almost anything, work or home related. It helps to keep the problems that arise in business to a minimum. I would recommend this to anyone who needs the best for both work and in home jobs that you need to complete a task rather quickly.

Cons: I only dislike that sometimes the program will crash. The bug seems to cause some of your work to be missing... but that is only every once in awhile. It rarely happens, but when it does it can become frustrating. but you can be assured that most of the time all of your unsaved work is still their within the program and is able to be recovered.

I use this product to type things up while I'm on the go.

Pros: I like being able to use this product while I'm on the go and I don't have to worry about stopping to use my computer to get things done.

Cons: It is difficult to save files because it is not setup like the traditional style on a PC. Once you figure it out it becomes much easier.

Overall: I am able to be more efficient because of this product,

Pros: Very easy to organize and visualize all aspects of your project. It contains many functions for all kind of purposes (tasks, consumables, cost, personnel etc) and it is extremely useful

Cons: You need proper training in order to use its functionalities to the full extend but as soon as you master it there is no limit to what you can do

Still one of the best

Pros: I have reviewed and evaluated dozens of project management software and keep coming back to MS Project. It is easy to use and has useful features. Many of the others had bells and whistles that were nice, in theory, but really were not all that useful.
I like being able to click on the task bar and have the task highlight. This is very useful for detailed projects. Also by hovering the mouse over the task name, the whole name will bubble up. Not all programs do this.

Cons: The sort feature is a little odd in that it offers to sort by fields that may not be used. It would be clearer if it sorted only by those being used.

Pros: Love the interface and the layout of the work area. Lots of templates to get you started. Starts you thinking right off the bat about how your project is going to lay out.

Cons: Pretty steep learning curve. Difficult to master until you start looking at your projects in a linear fashion and understand how tasks relate to each other.

Overall: Helps me plan out our production schedules and goods receipts very smoothly.

Pros: Hierarchical view of tasks, sub-tasks with efforts & resource allocation.
A detailed tabular view via the Gantt chart view .
A task distribution on a calendar view with pictorial representation of tasks via the team planner view.
Ability to assign same task to multiple people and define resource allocation towards each task
Via the network diagram the overall dependencies, flow of tasks can be well understood.
Option to baseline a project to a specific date helps to showcase progress accordingly.

Cons: I recommend that the transition between automatically scheduled and manual schedule can be made more pleasant, sometime this results in a lot of conflicts to be resolved.

Overall: Excellent Resource Management.
Project plan creation.
Ability to derive cost and effort of a project.

So many PM tools evolved in the market, but this is still the best one for project management

Pros: Great PM tool for scheduling, resource management, and earned value management techniques for planning and control of projects.

Cons: MS Project is not compatible with older Macs so it requires installation of Boot Camp. There are comparable less expensive PM tools / Gantt chart software out there.

Great product works well for what I need it too.

Pros: Microsoft project is a great suite for project management, I've used it for many projects at work. The layout of the program is excellent and I love how easy it is to keep track of projects that you're working on. Customer Service was great, I was able to contact them for some questions that I was unable to answer on my own.

Pros: If you want a feature or functionality in your particular project plan, it is almost certainly included in MS Project. This is the tool that all serious project managers seem to use because of that.

Cons: There is no such thing as a simple project in MS Project. Everything is complex. That means that unless you have a dedicated person assigned to working with the project document, you are going to spend way too much time fiddling and not enough time doing the actual work.

It has help me in project management and developing a plan, and assigning resources to tasks etc.

Pros: Its ease of use and the ability to update my budget, and analyzing workloads of my team . really like the cost of calculating a project and communicating this to my team.

Cons: The fact that its not included in the MS Office suite and must be acquire separately is not good and this has cost my organization more and as a result must be careful installing the products because of the cost associated.

Overall: Ease of use and management of my budget, cost comparison, has help in preparing reports and helping my organization to remain within budget. Able to manage people equipment and resources.

Great for managing/tracking projects in regards to timelines and resources.

Pros: MS Project helps us to see more clearly in our different construction projects. When the project is well built at first, it can be a powerful tool to help us prioritise our actions.

Cons: MS Project is not a very intuitive software so you need some training to use it correctly. Some added features would be nice like more interoperability with Outlook and the tasks it would send linked with critical points in the schedule.

Pros: Project is very intuitive to use, but beneath the initial simplicity lie several layers that power users can progressively dig into to maximize productivity, The trouble-free integration with the other Office products and cloud services is a plus.

Cons: Not really specific to Microsoft Office, but I would like to see some new static and flow visualizations other than the legacy, printed paper-like, Gantt charts and derivatives. Perhaps something to do with the new Virtual Reality hardware and software that is being developed by Microsoft. That would be a quantum leap.

Overall: Solid tool to keep my projects within tolerable levels of productivity.

Pros: Easy to create schedules and link tasks. Easy to manage the changes with a few clicks. Also you can convert files to PDF and print them or make reviews for customers.
Easy to use. I spent like a month using it until feeling comfortable with all the features.

Cons: Because there are so many features, can be difficult to learn how everything fits together. And maybe the user experience can improve related to the way you change the cells etc.

This software satisfied my needs at the moment and will continue using it.

Comments: Microsoft Project makes my project management tasks much more simplified and streamlined. It is easy to collaborate from virtually anywhere with the right tools. Lots of different views for the same data input. Allows for individuals to have different time schedules built in and different cost centers and rates to pull from across multiple assets.

MS Project really is the way to logically think about the tasks ahead of you and how best to plan an approach to scheduling.

Overall: We went through a handful of different PM software options in our R&D center before eventually settling back into MS Project to handle all our technology development timelines. Many offered similar sets of tools and offerings, and even the ability to link up with Outlook, etc. But MS Project was and still is the standard for project management within our organization.

Pros: Powerful reports.

Cons: Hard to use and undertand... Training and practice needed compulsory

Overall: Using MS Project without training first can be a nightmare. That was my experience... looks easy and similar to an Excel Spreadsheet but then you start, you can be working for hours and completely wasting your time . After some days of training you can start using the basics. The power of the tool starts when you know the main features and the system perfectly and you use it every week. The new reports are powerful.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't start without training. If you have to use it, understand it first. Check it every day/week or you will get crazy with the Project's changes... Try only the last versions to unlock the power of the last report options.

Pros: Nothing

Overall: This software has been around a long time and still reflects Excel. But it is extremely unstable and repeatedly shuts down without saving. It decides that it wants to start work at some date and no amount of attempts allow you to change it. Only solution delete schedule and start again. Still does not allow simutaneous start to start and finish to finish links of activities.

Pros: 1. Ease of use
2. Fast data entry
3. Visible Gant chart

Cons: 1. Columns are locked to function only one way
2. Date fields don't default to today's date
3. No means to separate one project from another

Overall: I use Microsoft's Project to track the individual items that I need to manage for a major project. The best parts of MS Project are that it evolved into the easiest to use Gant chart generator out there. My personal business calls for me to track several programs at one time and as an Instructional Designer/Architect, I tend to "chunk" projects into smaller, easier to accomplish bites. The Project lets me do that and helps me track my progress in completing the chunks of the larger project that I have to complete. I like that the interface allows me to enter the data about the project into what looks like a spreadsheet. The software then generates a Gant chart and helps me track where I might have finished ahead of schedule or where I might slip if I don't pay attention.

My main gripes about MS Project involve a lack of flexibility. I can't easily rename column headings because they're locked into Microsoft's view of what a project should look like. This is only a minor annoyance. That said, at times I often expect MS Project to behave more like MS Excel where I can manipulate and edit cells with ease, which you can't because the columns are locked to function only one way. Finally, I would like to have row separators that let me know where one project ends and another begins. I do this because I'd like to have a tool that lets me view all my projects in one place. Changing dates is also an annoyance because the date fields always default to the point in time in which you started the project and so if you expect the date fields to default to "today's date", you might have to make adjustments. It would be nice if the date defaulted as expected (today's date).

Tips:
1. You can roughly rename the titles of cells, but the contents will always function according to the locked nature of the cells.
2. If like me, you want to track multiple projects in one MS Project file, simply color code the different projects with the cell highlight function.

Recommendations to other buyers: There may be better software packages out there for Project Management and MS Project attempts to do it all by bringing a lot of traditional Project Management functions into one place. That said, you have to learn to tweak MS Project a bit to get it to do what you want.

Pros: Easy of assigning resources and task dependencies makes it east to plan and manage projects

Overall: I use Microsoft Project for planning and keeping track of all my larger projects. It's great for making sure everyone is aware of the tasks, who's responsible for them, and when they can start the task and when they need to complete them. It is easy to set task dependencies so if a date needs to change for a task, all the dependent task dates change as well. The features make it easy for planning projects.

Recommendations to other buyers: Can export the project plan to PDF format to share the project plan with users that do not have a license of MS Project.

Pros: User-friendly, pretty light & fast tool, Quick to learn, Good presentation by Gantt charts etc

Cons: Need time to learn all the features, cannot handle big & complex projects so easily

Overall: I have used the software for many small & medium complex level IT projects. Just like other Mircosoft products this one is also user-friendly & comfortable to use. It has all features like graph, charts etc for reporting. I am sure Gantt chart would be the most favorite of every user. It does need a lot of learning to use all the features of the tool but it's worth spending time in learning it thoroughly.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's the most common & reliable tool for project management

Pros: Ease of use and understanding. It doesn't require much training for all those involved.

Cons: I typically need a software that can handle multiple dependencies and assign tasks based off of those dependencies and for that I don't feel that MS Project is the best solution.

Overall: Working within the Project Management realm I have used multiple types of Project Management software. I feel that MS Project is a cost-effective, easy way to manage simple projects. For more complex projects that require the Waterfall method, I don't know that MS Project would be the best solution.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use it for simple projects! It is a great tool.

Pros: This software is simple to use. There are similarities between it and other MS suite programs. The functionality is endless and can be utilized for several different aspects of the construction process. TI can integrate with our online project management software to further its capabilities and help with our open communication and change management through all parties involved in our projects.

Cons: The first few times you will need to hunt around for some of the features that should be obvious, like spell check and page layout formatting, but once you know where to find it, operation is simple.

Overall: we utilize MS Project for all of our construction project schedules, from over all site phasing plans, to the complete duration schedule all they way down to our detailed three week look ahead schedules.

Pros: It does what it is meant to do. You can created a detailed robust project plan complete with dependencies.

Cons: But, each team member must have a copy of Project in order to view the files, making collaboration a clunky endeavor to say the least.

Overall: As a Project Manager I live and die by the project plan and Project allows me to build a very detailed and robust one. Problem is, many members of the project team do not have or need a license for Project and that makes collaboration with these team members difficult.

Before most meetings, I need to export my project plan to either a PDF file or and Excel file in order for the rest of the team to be able to reference or make updates. Many times, the formatting does not pull through to the new version, which requires a lot of extra work

Recommendations to other buyers: If you don't need to share or collaborate, this is the standard of PM software.

Comments: I love Microsoft Project. When I first became a project manager, I was told to use this software.

It is a lot to remember, though, and when you aren't using it, it's tough to get back into.

The capabilities of integrating all MS Office products and the reporting tools are just great tools that allow for me to have a better understanding of where the project is and what actions I need to take. Although I have not created a schedule with resources, it seems like some valuable tools and widgets are available that will help me understanding the scheduling tools. Creating nodes, milestones, FS,SS, FF and others has never been easier.

Cons: Print results can be hard to predict, would like to be able to select areas of schedule in window to "print selection."

Overall: I've been using Project since the mid-90's and i'm currently on Project 2016. It is relatively uncomplicated to enter task information and link tasks to others so updates can be made to a task that affects future scheduled events, and to tie data such as personnel to various tasks. There are a number of formats to display information. One issue I have is that it can take several trials to get a print version of a schedule that meets one's hardcopy handout needs, but overall I have been pleased with the results.

Recommendations to other buyers: I can generate a workable timeline in less than an hour for an average-sized project.

Pros: Ease of use, visually presentable (especially when dealing with many tasks), most common software in the industry

Cons: It takes some time to learn the software so it can be intimidated to new users

Overall: Microsoft Project is undoubtedly one of the best project management tool in the industry, whether you are working on projects in different fields such as IT, Marketing, Finance, Construction, etc. As long as I can remember, MS Project has been helping me deliver projects successfully. It's a software that is ideal for collaborating with my team and it aids in effective planning as well as allocation of resources. Probably the best feature of this program is the resource management aspect of it notably the workload tracking with everyone involved (team members, client, and vendors).

I normally use the Gantt Chart view since this is the easiest to work with and most common as well. I don't think I've ever worked with an easier software that can do simple changes such as linking multiple dependencies. In addition, this is more visually intuitive and you can easily manipulate the shape and colors of the bars (this is very helpful when dealing with multiple tasks).

Overall, this software is definitely one of the top ones out there. It takes a lot of practice to get used to it but having templates (especially the ones specific to your company/industry or whenever you are working on similar projects with identical deliverables [ease of use = tasks are populated]). One good advice for people who are interested in project management: learn this software early one if possible. I know many universities teach the MS Project basics.

Recommendations to other buyers: Learn this program early on in your career. If you have the software, try to play around with it and create "mock" projects with various deliverables, schedule, etc.

Comments: It is easy to start but difficult to maintain once the project tasks get complex in dependencies. Clients don't always have it installed on their machines so many times we resort to building out the project plan on Excel instead which suffice for simple tracking and management.
