What is Microsoft Project?

Microsoft Project helps businesses plan projects and collaborate with one another from anywhere using tools such as task assignment, due-date tracking, dependency configuration, scheduling, business intelligence integration, and more. The solution helps users to streamline projects, resources, and portfolio management with integrated planning tools for project tracking. It is a flexible solution for project portfolio management (PPM) and everyday work, delivered through Office 365.

• Setup projects and assign team members to them, set start and finish dates, add dependencies, and define durations.

Pros
Good for helping a team see what other team members are doing, and allowing work to be tracked effectively. Helps to keep deadlines in mind and on goal.
Helps you to keep a track of all your project activities and schedule all your tasks. The tool is easy to use for beginners and helps to understand its working with less time and great efficiency.
Extremely robust and powerful tool once fully understood. Fairly simple construction of charts and data visualization, and the ability to expand capabilities within the software.
Cons
To me this may be more important than planning as the lack of project visibility might put the project at risk more so than a poor plan.
The only dislike that i encountered in Microsoft Project, is that it is desktop-installed; other than that nothing.
Sometimes it gets confused. Also, sometimes working with multiple teams and multiple people per team, it has a hard time allocating resources.

Project Planning Made Easy

Reviewed a year ago

It is a beautiful Planning and Scheduling Tool that helps all size of organizations in carrying out/managing their day 2 day and long term projects.

Pros

If one knows the Planning and Scheduling Concepts, it is extremely easy to use this software to carry out planning/scheduling.

Cons

It has its own proprietary format. Though can be saved as PDF and shared but it would be better if it can be opened directly in different formats.

An excellent software for Schedule Management and Resource Management

Reviewed 10 months ago

The software allows me to monitor and see the progress of the tasks in real time. Apart from this, it also allows me to import data and see multiple projects at once.

Pros

MS project software is really a user friendly tool for tracking and planning your project. We can see the general project summary and it also has features to generate reports with statistics and graphs. Another big advantage of this software is that all kinds of Microsoft tools like Word, Excel can be integrated in it. Gantt charts are easily readable in the software. The Gantt Charts can also be created in Excel and other softwares, but MS project allows us to to enter and manage information for each task.

Cons

The software is really good for small projects but when it comes to large projects having multiple subtasks, one can get confused. I would say the software is best suited for small projects .

I want to like this product as it has potential, but...

Reviewed 2 years ago

This product has so much potential if they could resolve the bugs, interface, and integration with other Microsoft software. It truly could be a one-stop product if they could dial this in.

Pros

This product is incredibly affordable, especially when it comes with the entire Microsoft Suite. It also is familiar when compared to other Microsoft products.

Cons

Unfortunately, this product feels dated and clunky. It's visually not as appealing as other project management software and is the least intuitive in design. This product also is riddled with bugs that prevent tasks/projects from updating or saving properly, which can be devastating to an entire team. Additionally, this product is very clunky when integrating with other products, especially with other Microsoft software, which is genuinely disappointing.
