Pros: What I like most about the software is that it allows you to list all the activities that will be carried out in a project and additionally you have the possibility to identify those activities that are critical to achieve the project. Another aspect that I like is the possibility of adding the human and material resources and the control of execution that is associated to each activity, as well as the budget the initial project has contemplated

Cons: What I like the least about the software is to print a set of activities you should bring a sheet size A0, due to the width of the page. You can not always view all aspects in a single impression, about activities, costs and resources

Overall: I can communicate with clients regarding the relationship of the activities to be carried out in a project, the resources that are planned to be used and the total cost of the project, as well as a proposal for disbursement

Pros: ability to define activities, start and end dates and have a set baseline. good for managing large projects.

Cons: MS project can get clunky. Adding dependencies can get tricky. If you have a large number of users editing the same plan, it needs to be carefully managed.

It is a great tool to manage and track work.

Pros: Very complete solution with all required features (for our needs). Ressource management, time management, tasks, ... Also one of the best known solution out there so lots of people are familiar with it. Also the new online plans now include an Essentials version with very interesting pricing! Would be my go to option for large project management.

Cons: It can get complex and require training for inexperience users (regular version). For smaller projects, I would recommend the Essentials, or using one of the many online alternatives.

Overall: Great project management with tons of features.

Pros: This is the best tool for people who are starting to make or evaluate their own project. MS Project with a very simple interphase can adjust virtually to anyone who wants to have a better organization of their activities to begin a project or to make a better decision of the future of their activities. With very simple data like the name of activities, the time for development and the people who will get involved, you can easily start a project and have an idea of how much time would happen to get it and where they would start the limitations or obstacles to develop your project.

Cons: The main limitation of MS Project it is that you have to have a middle of high level of administration processes, because a big range of the information that you introduce on the software has a direct relation with a administration and accounting, while this is information be better, your project increase the possibilty to develop. If you do not have a basic administration knowledge you can have some trouble putting the data on the software and maybe the result will not be very effectly or will not fulfill your purposes

Pros: I like the interface and discounted pricing from MS Office Works. I like the resource allocation and warning about over allocation of resources.

Cons: Not very user friendly. It's very difficult to set up my own calendar with customized holidays. Formatting the Gantt Chart is a nightmare. There is not much options left. Nowhere near Asta Easy Plan. Very long learning curve and not fully adopted to construction industry.

It´s an enhance from Microsoft Project, with added value of power server and Project web app.

Comments: While it is tried and true, there are a lot of products on the market that are better than Microsoft Project.

Pros: Has a lot of features that as a Project Manager I find very useful. It's often used by many other businesses so we could share mpp files and just plug them in.

Cons: The biggest con that Microsoft Project has is that it lacks the collaborative tools that other Project Management software has. I feel that it's resource planning is severely lacking, and task management notifications are lackluster.

Pros: Full power scheduling ability and robustness. Industry standard. Nice tie-in with the O365 environment and Sharepoint OData to access all the system data

Cons: The cloud clients are guinea pigs for new patches, there is no choice and often you show up and things are broken. Not great for system wide updates, each single sharepoint site is its own entity and won't update when the template is updated. No in-line editing for project details, not great if you are in item heavy industries

Comments: More and more of us are less hardcore waterfall and are moving more towards a Waterfall/Agile hybrid solution. Would love to see the concept of "cards" or "Stories" be part of the project with stages or lists rather than trying to force Agile into a Waterfall tool.

Pros: For me MS/Project sets the standard for all other waterfall project management software tools. Have been using it for many years.

Cons: 1. The con is also a plus, but setting resource time estimates is tricky and requires a better understanding of work versus resource units versus and % complete. Added to that is the Task type and whether or not it is effort driven, confuses even senior PM's. 2. Not having an easy interface to update tasks from a Kanban (or Agile) world adds complexities to those us using hybrid solutions. Maybe this one is just that I am not aware of the Microsoft Kanban options however.

Pros: If you are Microsoft Saavy most of the tabs are intuitive. Also, creating sub projects is a great feature that most don¿t know how to use properly. The linkages are easy to use and help when dealing with complex tasks. The gannt window can be quite useful when presenting timelines to people in an audience versus the lines of tasks.

Cons: The resourcing feature isn¿t counterintuitive. It¿s not user friendly. The timeline feature is awful it needs improvement! I¿d never use it.

Cons: For me at least, the price was a huge deal, if you where looking to invest in This, I would highly recommend the 365 Project variant as it will be cheaper, paid monthly and is updated more frequently.

Comments: MS Project is a great tool for setting up and managing projects. There are some confusing aspects about it. The advanced features do take some effort to learn. The biggest need is a better report generator.

Pros: Very good at developing project schedules, connecting tasks, and manpower loading. The ability to integrate with Excel is quite useful.

Cons: Getting customized reports out of the software can often be difficult and time consuming. It has lots of advanced features which are not straightforward to learn. Expect to either take some training or buy a good reference guide to get more than the basics out of the program.

Pros: The program allows for a robust connection within our organization for projects that cross department boundaries and need multiple stakeholders for completion. The Microsoft interface allows for a strong understanding of how to use the program where it spans much of the other Microsoft programs.

Cons: There is a learning curve with the software where all aspects are not as intuitive or at least not as well. It can be far more complicated for most teams. It is an investment in training and resources to fully leverage the program.

Overall: A better scope of work and an organized process was gained immediately. It allowed all stakeholders to come together and provide an organizational view of projects and status updates.

Fits the client's needs and easy to use.

Comments: I love working with Microsoft Project due to its simplicity.

Pros: It is the best product to teach entry-level schedulers. Most clients interact well with the scheduling format because it is a Microsoft product. I find it easy to teach new employees the fundamentals of scheduling using this software.

Cons: This product is not specifically tailored for construction industry. It can't be sometimes very difficult when dealing with larger more complex projects.

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 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.

Cons: I would like the tool to throw already defined or predefined reports related to the progress of the projects.

Overall: This tool has allowed me to have control and monitoring not only of my projects, but also of the resources that are distributed in said projects.

Pros: One of the four mega-vendors, Microsoft has solution offerings for nearly every industry and most technology areas. With their continued innovation for the cloud era, your organization may potentially benefit.

Cons: Some features sets are missing, but can easily be solved with 3rd party applications and integrations that improve the success of meeting your organization's business technology needs - just the MS product alone won't cut it in most cases.

Comments: PDF printing formats are not optimal. I find myself working to get large schedules so they are legible. Visual Aesthetics used in Project presentations is somewhat Limited I'd like to see more bells and whistles in this area.

Pros: Microsoft Project is very easy to maneuver and easy to teach basic scheduling principles. It is very Universal among our clients. I utilize a lot of the shortcut that you have provided within the software as it is developed over the years. I also appreciate the multiple Gantt chart colors that are available. It is very easy to Import and Export tasks out of excel formats. I have found many aftermarket tutorials on Microsoft Project.

Cons: Some of the advanced options are complex and cumbersome an example is resource leveling. Formatting the header to accommodate various icons or logos is not easy. It is not easy to jump from task to task.

Comments: MS Project seems to be geared toward traditional project management styles. Great way to manage large complex projects that you need to check off tasks. On projects with constant change it is not as accomidating.

Pros: Product does integrate with Sharepoint and can share with other staff that do not have Project. Can be used by large teams on waterfall type projects

Cons: Expensive license cost, not cloud based. Hard to share with vendors. Not the best product for agile projects or with progressive elaboration projects.

The base set of knowledge I needed to know about Project to have it be useful for the SBS projects I was performing made it almost unusable because of the learning curve necessary.

Comments: Good software, understand the horsepower I can get out of the back end BUT the hurdles are high.

Pros: Everything you would want it to do from a PM perspective it would do. Unfortunately most of the complicated PM tasks tend to be more suited for the Enterprise space rather than the Small business space.

Cons: Very complicated/sophisticated piece of software. in order to get all the *magic* of project you have to set it all up correctly. In order to set it up *correctly* you just have to have a base set of knowledge that is beyond what most of my customers are willing to pay for. This then turns a software purchase decision into a software purchase + training + frequency of use (retention) decision. For small business project often times the notepad and meeting method usually wins out over the select of MS Project.

Pros: Microsoft Project is one of those tools that every project manager must learn to use. It has a lot of great features for the beginner to the expert in project management. You can easily plan and forecast activities, assign resources and even get a full project cash flow. I use it to plan project activities, assign resources and detect when they are overcharged and if you use a baseline you can get control of project deviations. You can find a lot of functionalities that can grow as your needs of project management and knowledge of the tool evolve. There are a lot of good content about how to use it properly.

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.

Comments: For the cost per licence and the ease of use, Microsoft Project is my go to tool for Project Management Software.

Pros: Most business have some form of Microsoft Suite, Project doesn't come in the standard suite but so adding additional licenses for Project is more cost effective than most Project Management Software. Because it is a Microsoft product, the user interface is like most Microsoft products, so learning how to navigate around Project doesn't take a lot of time. There is so much to this tool. You can do small and/or large project on it. The capabilities that it has are endless, you really can do a lot with this tool.

Cons: It can be a complex tool, when I first began using Project I had a manager working with me on the Project and helped me get used to Microsoft Project. She had been using it for years, so she had a wealth of knowledge that she shared with me. Without her help, I do think it would have taken me a lot longer to get used to it and be able to use it to its full ability. That being said, the tool can do so much more than I ever thought it could.

Pros: A good timeline of tasks. Linking events features are easy to use. Labor rates and time can be calculated. The auto timing gives fast work.

Cons: A Little bit tricky when it comes to schedule several different projects. Difficult to set same labor with the different wage at different projects.

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.

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.

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.

Comments: Microsoft Project is a very easy-to-use scheduling program while keeping a ton of features! As a student who has been taught both P6 and Project, there is no doubt that Microsoft Project is the better software. Much easier to navigate without sacrificing too many features.

Comments: MS Project was and for some people, is still the standard. However I am finding a lot of great open source software and app based software filling the voids left where MSP cannot compete.

Comments: Microsoft Project has a lot of really great features provided you purchase the correct version for your needs otherwise, just like any other software, it will not perform to your expected satisfaction.

Pros: 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. Most of our clients use this software and allows for easy transfer of schedules.

Cons: Because there are so many features the learn, it can be daunting to learn how everything fits together. Although this is an early Con, in the long term, the functionality is worth the perseverance.

Comments: When you need a professional looking schedule but simple schedules MS Project is perfect. It allows the use of schedule logic, calendars, and constraints, but does not require all of the horse power of some of the other scheduling software on the market.

Pros: Simple to use and allows for straight-forward schedule logic. Great for preliminary, proposal, or owner's schedules.

Cons: Would have to switch to Primavera or similar once you need the scheduling horsepower.

Pros: Easy to use prominent company that knows what people need for software

Overall: I have been in project management for five years and have had a chance to try multiple products. I am impressed with the ease of use with Microsoft Project. I also find that more people have access to this software than do not. The Microsoft name alone gives you the security of knowing this is a company that knows what they are doing. Love using MS Project

Pros: So with MS Project, is an amazing tool, if you take the time to get over the learning curve. It took me quit a while to figure out all the ins and outs of it, But Once you do, and are comfortable with it, its very power..

Cons: The high learning curve and very slow to load on Mac

Pros: MS Project really is the way to logically think about the tasks ahead of you and how best to plan an approach to scheduling. Drag & drop management allows you to brain storm and rejig your team thoughts into a progression that suits whatever project you are planing. Being easy to visualise the steps to completion enables clear communication to the team and ensures implementation is fluid. Delays or pushbacks will immediately highlight any resource conflicts or shortages giving you time to recruit or come up with an alternative option.

Cons: Not the easiest software to get used to but once you start with small steps the rest will follow. Despite being a long time user I have yet to find the limits of the program so I have a whole lot more left to discover.
