Pros: It is very lightweight, it is free and you can customize in the way you want, you have basis tool for projects like calendars and gantt charts, you can make a project easy and fast.

Cons: The interphase is awful, the worst interphases in the world, the amount of options to do a project are very limited and you have to be aware of the use because it can be very unstable.

Pros: It is a simple program to use and useful for the elaboration of diagrams, of good interface and complete, with certain details, but it works well.

Cons: This program is very easy to use, however it still has some defects when it is running, a disadvantage is that it does not allow the printing of the diagrams pert, even there is no greater possibility of personalization of the presentation of the gantt chart.

Pros: At a basic level it provides everything you need to get a project planned and to execute it well. It is very easy to open and use and easy to make adjustments on the fly. The interface is easy to read and understand and the GANTT chart is very clear and easy to follow.

Cons: More functionality would be nice, but the base product is great. It would be good to have some control over the look and feel of some features such as to lock the zoom level on the GANTT chart or to customise the task list view to display information you'd like to see.

Overall: This product has made my life very easy. I had to plan a project and this software gave me clarity and focus to ensure success.

Pros: If you want to create or manipulate a Gantt chart without having to pay for the license of a commercial program, this open source program is a good option because it is easily manipulated, the menu bars are very similar to other programs aimed at managing of projects and instinctively you get what you're looking to develop.
It is universal since it allows you to import and export files made in MSProject and CSV, with the software you can perform the PERT without problems, although the graphic representation is very generic and unattractive, the performance of the program in projects of academic or small scale is outstanding.
You can install in Windows, Mac and Linux, It has good compatibility.
It is free download, although the developers appreciate some donation, very suitable for students, universities, companies that handle small projects and little staff.
Does not consume many computer resources, the software weighs only 14MB.

Cons: It allows you to allocate the human resource and time, but does not perform complex analysis of those components, you can not easily identify who is overloading tasks, where is the critical path? What processes are the bottlenecks?
The design is very primitive, lacks development, but it is like that small car that allows you to reach the goal at a moderate speed
The printing of the diagrams is cumbersome, you must work with care in the design of the printing area, the software is associated more with the visualization than with the printing of reports. GanttChart is not compatible with the spring XER format, it must be passed through MSproject

Overall: I have done five small projects with the tool, it has been useful and excellent at the level of expressing the goals of those involved, the participants, the time of development of each task, activity, types of associated deliverables and the participants of each of the activities , level of responsibility and hours of dedication, really that is very useful in terms of the general visualization of the goal.
Unfortunately I can not automatically define in this software the levels of resource overload, the critical path of the processes and the possible bottlenecks of the process.
In general, the software is good and practical at your level.
I can define and design a project for free and manage the main structure of the project, share it with the people involved and they can deploy it by installing the tool in any existing operating system

Pros: Use Gantt Project is very easy, because this app includes a basis menu to add the task, manage the calendars and set specific features to your projects, but the most important of all, is the Resource Chart option, where you can manage Human Resources, Assign Resources, and Monitor the task assignments, you can find all that things in this free app.

Cons: In some aspects the app is very basis, the interphase is a little ugly, and the way the app manage the data is a little gross, and only uses basis elements of a project leaving behind important aspects, like a milestones or red routes.

Pros: Honestly, I've been using this freeware program for MANY years and has helped me prepare gantt charts for many things, including but not limited to, detailed production schedules for film projects. I've also used it to create a development schedule for a mobile app I'm involved with. It's pretty easy to use once you understand the basics of gantt charts and you'll never use another program again. The best part is I've been using this software for a long time and have never had to pay a cent to use it. Can you say that about other similar products out there that have the same features? SIMPLY AMAZING. I'm so happy to see this company still up and running and wish them nothing but the best as we move further into 2018. Give it a shot, you have nothing to loose, literally. 9/10!

Cons: Nothing. It's free. It's simple. It's awesome. OK... if I had to get "picky", I'd maybe say the one thing that could make this better would be if they had an online version where you can access your gantt charts anywhere on-the-go. Other than that though, nothing to complain about!

Overall: I'm a longtime user and I'm so proud to see this freeware still available to people to use.

9/10!!

Pros: GanttProject is one of the best local tools for project management, it allows you to visualize your projects in a graphic way, being more pleasant for introductions to your team or clients, opting for a simple image of a complex system, helping your presentation and understanding, showing in graphical ranges how much it takes to develop each task, group that participates and more, all this of its more known tool the gantt diagram, is a very unique way to organize the projects and facilitate their understanding and progression.

Cons: One of the most important disadvantages is that the bars do not indicate the amount of work but only the time invested, this does not allow to see how many resources will participate in the task, the case can be presented where a shorter bar actually takes much more work and personnel involved which brings confusion or detracts from the diagram.

Overall: Have a tool that allows me to organize my projects in a visual way, easier to present to clients or users outside the area, with which they can better understand the times each task takes.

Overall: I can update my schedule in minutes, this is perfect for construction management as conditions are ever changing. I keep this up on my secondary screen 24/7!

Pros: It does all the basic stuff you'd expect, is very intuitive and comes without the annoying "I know better than you" features you get with a certain popular paid-for planner. It's compatible with MS Project files & can import/export them as well as to CSVs. IT uses the common short cut keys too.
It's reliable which is more than I can say for some other online apps. Updates get applied regularly and everything is still there.
I got the basics of my first plan functional within a couple of hours of downloading it (100+ lines).

Cons: It's a bit clunky in places e.g. when entering a new task you have to overtype the default name, but that's just a minor point.

Overall: I could plan a personal project without having to go buy a package I'm not likely to use frequently.

- Can work OFFLINE on your desktop! Really great!

Although there is no customized reporting and I have not figured out how to track risks, this has the same feel as what I am used to and it is very effective in managing my department's many projects and providing the big picture to leadership. I HIGHLY recommend if you are already familiar with MS Project and you are looking for a low cost or free alternative.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not use if you do not already know your way around MS Project. Other than that, this is great!

Comments: It's the best freeware out there for making such an important diagram. Making count that other paid software is over $, what GanttProject does its great worth it the donation.

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.

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.
