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.

Key benefits of using Microsoft Project

• Utilize the timeline functionality to visualize projects. The Team Planner allows users to view what’s coming up in the future and anticipate changes or potential problems.

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

• Integrate Project with Microsoft Power BI to create interactive dashboards based on project metrics and drill down on performance.

• Manage Agile projects within Microsoft Project using Scrum and Kanban boards, as well as custom workflows and methodologies.

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.

Quality program in use

Reviewed 2 months ago

Microsoft Project is another of the Microsoft software application, with which you can manage projects, it is a program that gives you several versions that helps you control and understand what's related to projects (schedules, finance). With this application, run monitoring all aspects so that your project will develop successfully, optimize processes, resources, costs, practical release, saving time and money.

Pros

I like Microsoft Project, since it is a tool to process the work of an easy project as a complex and quickly from anywhere. In the same way, it is a way in which this application supports you in the planning and management of project resources. It allows us to create the report.

Cons

I do not like it, since it is a software that is not multiplatform, it must be installed with the Windows operating system, which makes it difficult to carry out projects from other sources or operating systems.

Must have some sort of training

Reviewed a month ago

Extremely difficult to learn on the fly without formal training. I would not recommend to someone who is not a dedicated PM.

Pros

This product is very robust and has all the features you would want out of a project management tool.

Cons

Very difficult to understand how the features of this product work without formal training. This product also cannot be viewed by other unless they too have a license. At the end of the day the biggest down fall of this product is that is too complex and not worth the added cycles it would take to learn over an intuitive software like Trello.

Tracking Your Work

Reviewed 2 months ago

With this amazing program you can create milestones for your projects to plan and determine phases and requirements of each phase of project lifetime. MS Project can give you a clear view to track your project and how it is going off track or doing well, so you well be able to evaluate works and make a good actions due to milestones changes to give an assessment in proper way. It is need a time to do a good plan with MS Project, then you will feel ease to track your project and it will be smooth especially if everyone involved in this work plan know about it.

Pros

MS Project is one of the simplest programs for project management. To plan, monitor, and evaluate projects in the correct way, which decrease risks and waste of time in work that includes milestones of the project lifetime. We can link Microsoft programs with each other that ease the process of data entry especially with Microsoft Excel tables while we build our plan, we can move these data to Microsoft...

Cons

Nothing important to talk about Microsoft Project unless sometimes the program hang for a while after making an update for some data then it will move on. I have used Microsoft Project for many years and I did not find any problems unless this one.

Keep Your Projects on Track with Microsoft Project.

Reviewed 2 months ago

The overall experience has been good. The feature set is rich for traditional project management approach which is how we base our project approach. Cost is a concern as subscription prices to add a new team member in O365 is high.

Pros

I think the software can be daunting for most at first glance. However, after some very simple practical use I think anyone could learn the ins and outs quite easily. Using the software to manage smaller projects at first is beneficial to see the power that it contains.

Cons

Microsoft Project is a great waterfall/traditional style project management software package. It would be nice to see other ways to adapt the features to other project management methodologies such as Agile/Scrum with sprint features, etc.
