Viewpath

2018-11-09

Our company uses it to track projects and task.

Pros

Nothing about it other than maybe it looks like an excel spreadsheet.

Cons

It is not user friendly and does not allow functionality that is needed to make completing task easy.

Accessible project scheduling

2018-08-06

Pros

It is easy to create milestones, tasks, and sub-tasks to track and manage projects.

Cons

It takes a little time to get used to Viewpath compared to other tools like Microsoft Project, but that might be a good thing as the interface is uncluttered and easy to understand.

Thank you for your review!

Import functionality is coming very shortly.

We realize it is difficult to copy and paste.

Would you like us to notify you as soon as import has been released?

Better software out there

2019-02-22

Our company has all but completely broken away from the use of Viewpath for more modern, easier to use software.

Pros

I do like the systematic ability to scroll through a project and check off each person's tasks as they are completed.

Cons

Although I like the way Viewpath keeps one task "together" where one can view completion in percentages, I feel it is harder to wrestle with than Asana or other project tracking software.

Mixed Review

2018-11-13

We opted for a more well rounded solution that had time tracking, accounting, and CRM in one tool.

Pros

We chose Viewpath because of the ability to handle multiple complex projects, and it's alignment with traditional project management.

Cons

Time tracking was a real issue and since it didn't do that well, we needed it to integrate with other programs.

Basic but good depending on your needs

2018-11-09

It's nice to have as a task list and a big picture of a project or projects in general and to get a view of the timeline.

Pros

It's a basic project management tool that gives you the big picture of the timeline as well as the broken down tasks. The customer service is always prompt and helpful!

Cons

I lose track of who can see what and which tasks they can change.

A tremendous project management solution providing low maturity organizations what is needed to grow

2018-11-06

A team can immediately become a highly functioning project team with this solution and information can flow where it is needed.

Pros

It allows teams to perform at higher levels when planning and executing their projects without the burden of a lot of training or rigor.

Cons

Viewpath does what it was designed for. Of the functions available, there is nothing I dislike, but I would like to see more PPM functionality added to make it a more complete solution.

., start-to-finish) and they are typically designed to run on the PC itself (not cloud based).

Pros

In my capacity as a nonprofit business consultant, I know that many small business owners may recognize what a Gantt chart looks like but they couldn't tell you what it was by the name and they certainly have never used it.

Cons

Most very small businesses can't afford even modestly priced software. That cost can escalate when you want to use it as shareware with more than one subscriber. I usually have them create a free account and then use screenshots to draw on the images themselves. This is not optimal but it works and once the company is more profitable they're more likely to consider taking out a subscription.
