Pros: Drag and drop task dependencies
Quick hierarchical task lists
Gantt reporting is configurable and the result is readable

Cons: Workflow to assign a resource to a task is a little long

Overall: GanttProject has helped me set up my projects and and project dependencies like a breeze. When going through my task lists I particularly appreciated being able to drag and drop my time constraints from one task to the other with sensible default values. I then printed good looking, and readable, reports that I could include as is in my project proposals. A huge time saver. Thanks GanttProject Team!

PS: I rated customer support 3 stars only, but that is because I never had to use customer support

Pros: Feature-rich

Cons: Inability to set ending dates for tasks

Overall: Running GanttProject 2.8.1 on Windows 7 Pro and Java 8. Easy to create tasks and assign resources and dependencies. However, I have been unable to set starting and ending dates for tasks. The program seems to randomly set ending dates and prevents me from editing them. On the rare occasions when I was able type in an ending date, the program refused to accept the ending date I assigned and sometimes changed both the starting and ending dates when I hit "OK" making the program next to useless. Hard to judge "Value for Money" since the program is free but I've wasted almost 2 hrs trying to get it to work.

Recommendations to other buyers: It needs more work. Not ready for prime time.

When GanttProject changes task dates it does so for a reason. A brief description of the scheduler on the docs pages [1] may give you some understanding why GanttProject decides to move a task. There is a support forum [2] and issue tracker [3] where you can ask for support if you really don't understand the decisions made by the scheduler.

Pros: Quick to use (Basic Project management).
Intuitive UI (really simple but friendly)

Cons: Require extra features to makes it more powerful, maybe an online functionality

Overall: There are tons of tools to do project management.

Ganttproject offers you a quick start and fast project revision and organization.

Its free version is really useful for trial purposes.

Pros: While this is not a show stopper

Overall: The tool has most of the features I would need but it would be nice if the resource manager could assign or create roles other than undefined or project manager. it does require users to explain to the money counters what departments the resources belong to for internal billing purposes. Because of this limitation, I can only give a rating of very good, not great. I have searched the forums for an answer to this but am unable to log in to post a query because I don't and won't use social media.

Recommendations to other buyers: The tool has most of the features I would need but it would be nice if the resource manager could assign or create roles other than undefined or project manager.

Dear Mike, you can add your favorite resource roles in the project properties. Project->Properties->Resource roles. With respect to support, there is GitHub issue tracker (no social media involved, old good login/password auth): http://github.com/bardsoftware/ganttproject/issues

Comments: It a sort of simpler version of MS Project. It allows the creation of Gantt diagrams and monitoring the progress of the project and the resource usage. Compatible with MS Project. Very easy to use and appropriate for simple projects. It does not include online collaboration features.
