Pros: I like that I can get a quick overview of projects that I'm associated with. Being able to see where and how my time is spent is very handy. I'm able to get what I need to very quickly and that is very important.

Cons: I guess the fact that the application is quite feature rich, the interface can be quite tricky to navigate if you don't already know what you want to do. I would've liked having a button on the home page to directly take me to any tasks assigned to me. I would've liked having quicker access to information pertaining to me.

Overall: As a developer keeping track of time spent and tasks aren't always a natural instinct. Forecast has made it more intuitive or easier than other apps to deal with this. I can fulfill my time/task management responsibilities in a quick enough manner so as to not disrupt my workflow too much and keep my project managers happy. I'm happy using Forecast, gets the job done.

Pros: I trailed around 7/8 different project management softwares over a 6-month period, the main problem was i needed both project management and resource management which proved really hard to find. Either one was good at one and not the other etc but finding forecast really dealt with all my needs and although its taken 6 months to get all the data in and staff using effectively, the benefits have been fantastic. Projects are running smoother and we can control the budgets better.

Cons: There isnt much i find wrong with this software and the team are really good at taking on board our ideas and requests, i think the scheduling could be improved a little, but the forecast team are always looking to improve on a great product and im sure they will continue to improve.

Overall: increased staff efficiency , better communication with clients and delivering projects smoother within budgets

If operational effectiveness and productivity is important to your business, don't hesitate.

Pros: The combined resource scheduling, time-tracking and Project Management tools, the detailed operational tracking and reporting, frequency of updates, and, of course, the excellent customer support.

It has been a pleasure to both use the product, and interact with the Forecast team.

Cons: Honestly, nothing springs to mind. The Forecast team have been very receptive to suggestions for minor enhancements as they've evolved the product, and I've no doubt that will continue. I feel we're in good hands.

Overall: I've spent many years trialing and implementing various Project Management and scheduling applications from an Ops perspective, but, frustratingly, I never found one that effectively combined these attributes into a single, easy-to-use package -- until Forecast.

That's impressive enough, but it's the ease of analysis and reporting that really sealed the deal for me. I can't imagine our business without it.

Forecast has given my team visibility into resource management like we've never had before!

Pros: The tool we used before didn't have any forecasting features our company needed. I really like the Time feature because it is simple, fast, and intuitive to use. I can easily see my projects, cards, and enter my time all in one view. It's always difficult switching systems after so many years, but I can instantly see the benefits of using Forecast as a sophisticated, easy-to-use platform. Forecast does a great job at tailoring to fit our company's needs and taking our feedback requests seriously.

Overall: So far Forecast has addressed most of my company's requests for new features and functionality and made them part of the system.

Pros: - Beautiful, fast and easy to use interface.

- The mix of Kanban and SCRUM just makes sense.

- The way I track the work, attach files, and so on, everything works fine

Cons: - The mobile app has a lot of limitations, and there are a lot of features that only can be made in the browser interface.

Overall: After try almost 50 tools of "project management", "work management" (really, 50 tools, seriously), I chose "Forecast". It just makes sense. My team love it. The cost worth it.

Pros: I love forecast because it's makes it easy for me to coordinate my upcoming projects with the rest of my team. Being able to set a high and low time allotment has been really helpful for gauging how long future projects will take.

Cons: My only issue is that I wish that there was an option to pause the timer fully -- sometimes I step away from my computer and would like to be able to stop the timer rather than have to report multiple increments of time to a project daily.

Forecast is a very great tool to organize yourself.

Pros: Forecast is really good to keep a planning on tracks and to have a view of your costs during the project.

Cons: With Forecast, you need to be very organized and the software is challenging because you can't start if you don't know what you are doing.

Overall: Forecast is a very great tool to organize yourself, especially in an agency with multiple projects and the need to have a control on planning and costs.

Pros: I have been a TFS user for years and never found a better management tool until I found Forecast. It is the clearest tool on the market so far, easy to use, full of functionalities. There's a lot o pros to it:

- highly customizable

-the time recording is amazing

-comments and subtasks on cards are awesome

-you can also tag other members of the team if you want them to read something

Cons: -when i record time, the record pop up is too small for the tasks names in the select

-i'd like a clearer way to mark done subtasks rather than a checkbox

Overall: I can track my time in an amazing way and have all the information I need at hand for each task and also for every project

Pros: Timeline showing progress of all projects in one screen;

Kanban board showing project tasks;

To-do list;

Compare budget and expense.

Cons: Collaborator cannot see "Scoping" page;

Cannot relate parent task with sub-tasks which have been split to new task;

Cannot define Project Stage by user;

Same set of Labels are commonly used in different fields, causing users hard to choose, and the labels become meaningless.

Overall: It helps team members see their tasks and update the progress easily.

Customer service is fantastic and the software is great!

Pros: Forecast's easy to use interface and technology allows me to track the progress of my company's projects and forecast for the future. The customer service is also extremely quick to reply and answer any questions.

Cons: It would be great to have the ability to create my own reporting within forecast. Although there are a lot of reporting features, there a few that my company needs. Just a few more options would be helpful.

Great potential, not there yet.

Pros: The variety of features. You can both schedule and plan on a high level and also dive down to the little things.

Cons: Unfortunately, there are still quite a lot of bugs and bulkiness.

I think the feature that is missing the most is being able to see on the scheduler that the resource was already allocated with tasks in the projects.

Overall: I can both plan the schedule of my team on high level and on task basis

Pros: - General overview of all your projects

- Easy to follow up on all your tasks for each project

- Collaboration tool

- Allows you to review the work load of all your team members and assign tasks for each project.

Cons: - Difficulty to download a full report or export the progress of each project for a presentation

Overall: Forecast has helped me to have more organization in all my projects, collaborate with others, assign tasks and follow up on the progress of each one. You can easily record time invested for each activity which allows you to validate the real costs of the development of each one. I like it very much! and strongly recommend the use of Forecast for your company's projects.
