Perhaps is just that our operation is unconventional but we still find the interface a bit heavy.

Pros

Timesheets tool is an awesome feature to which we rely a lot.
Task Management is also great to assing resources and keep the track of it

Cons

As a manager I struggle a lot when need reports, which is a tool that is sold separately. Also our business requires one person to be involved in many different projects and sometimes its overwhelming for the team.

Everything about this is amazing. They have clearly thought through UI and UX from a users standpoint.

The basic versions of this software are useless. You need premium or enterprise.

Recommendations

Probably the best on the market... but a close second and third are Asana and Wrike.

Pros

Ease of extracting data for mining results.

Cons

Although new/updated Dashboard provide more details. It is becoming difficult for entering efforts in different project and different tasks and sub-tasks. Also it is bit difficult to edit and modify time logs entered earlier. Creating different subtasks is difficult as the project progresses.

We were introduced to the Zoho Projects Ecosystem early 2017 and loved how intuitive the system was. It opened up new ways for our Dev and CX teams to interact and collaborate within each projects.

Pros

Collaborative environment
intuitive interface
Gantt Charts and usability reports
User Statistics & Task / Milestone breakdown views
Dependancies and Project templates

Cons

Support is not available during ops hours for North America which makes it difficult, if not impossible to learn unless we spend time late night to connect with Support

works well for project management. Can be accessed on mobile app hat is advantage. Time sheet management is good.

Cons

Reports from Zoho projects are limited ones. Not useful unless Zoho Reports is added. Lot many features needs to be explored and used. User addition and management has issues many times. Timezone for reporting and syncing with Zoho Reports is major issue. Customized options for setting up projects or users are not available or very limited

I was working on a project that used Zoho Projects as the management tool. It works great for projects of any size really the issue comes with integration with other platforms, apps, and tools. You really have to be an all Zoho kinda operation to really reap the max benefits from Zoho Projects. If that's not an issue then you should be in great shape.

I started ( and ended) using the free trial. This application certainly could be easier to use . I imagine that it would be had the free trial provided the opportunity to properly assess the product.

Pros

Simple navigation. Clean looking interface, multiple views

Cons

Not enough features in the free trail to adequately assess

Advice to Others

I recommend you not put too much effort info the trial version unless you are certain that you will be upgrading to one of the non-free versions (in which case , you already know more about how it works than I was able to determine with the free trail)

I have used Zoho Projects for some internal projects we are working on and I have like the collaboration and the features with Zoho Project. It has helped keep us updated and together with increasing our success. We have only used it on a small portion but we like it and will use it on some larger projects. We are also looking into Zoho People to help us track training needs with our staff.

Pros

I like the collaboration and especially the mobile app

Cons

There is a lot to learn and can be a big task.

Keep up the good work. Keep making it useful as you have already done.

Trying the Express version. Pretty straight forward, reasonably intuitive UI. I'm starting up a company, so costs are limited. There are 3 main deficiencies that have forced me to look for alternatives: 1) no dependencies, 2) no sub-tasks, 3) can't skip weekends and holidays.

The upgrade to premium has those features, but it's little expensive. Not as convenient to share select project details with customers, but manageable and with much better feature set.

Pros

Cloud based, intuitive UI

Cons

For the price of express version, no dependencies, no sub tasks, and no exclusion of weekends and holidays. Cheaper (free) alternatives with those features do exist.

Advice to Others

If the express version had those 3 things, I never would have looked for alternatives.

I have tried many PM software platforms, and I find that most are more complicated than I need. I have used various Zoho products for nearly a decade, and when I saw Projects, I had to give it a go. It has all the PM features you need with a clean, straightforward interface. It was easy to understand and get set up, and easy to follow multiple projects through. It's flexible enough to accommodate multiple PM approaches (which is great, since different projects sometimes benefit from different styles). As with any software, there are some features that I would like to see done differently, but I suspect that's largely a matter of preference. No real complaints - it's a great system!

We have multiple departments within a small business that take projects from start to finish. With Projects we are able to create tasks specific to each department and even team member in order to track cost for each project. It has helped so much with determining resource allocations and staying on budget.

Pros

Easy to use
It has a mobile App
You can customize everything

Cons

It might seem daunting starting from scratch, you really have to have an idea of how your company's setup is going to look before you can start.

Advice to Others

Try it out, it's fairly cheap and a great way to customize project time/budget tracking for each company's needs.

This add in has assisted us greatly with the communication between our support staff and our development staff. The built in features, like bug severity, reproducibility, etc are all items we were missing prior to finding this solution.

Pros

The features at the bug-level that allow you to drill down to the cause, the reproducibility, the impact on our client, and even the connection with the CRM to see exactly what client or parent organization were impacted have been incredibly helpful. The integration with projects was a key component that set this apart from other solutions.

Cons

I truly don't have any cons at this time. (Aside from my consistent feedback that Zoho's technical support is not helpful whatsoever)

Everything about this add in is easy to use

Advice to Others

It's definitely worth the (minor) cost to add this on to projects. 5/5

Zohoprojects - Lacks essential functionality

Product Quality

Product Quality
Quality

Zohoprojects looks good at first however there are some small bugs. More importantly there are MAJOR issues once everything is set up. Unfortunately we had to leave zohoprojects for privacy reasons.
Within the project management system as it is currently developed every user can see every comment and task for every other user in the project. We contacted zoho and there is no way of changing this.
Our setup currently is we have employees, contractors, managers and clients.
As far as zoho is concerned though all of the above make no difference as zohoprojects lets every user even the contractors see EVERY detail of every conversation and tasks between managers and clients.
Eventhough there are priviledge roles to prevent users from editing other users tasks they can still view EVERYTHING. Every login or message left, every detail, task, invoice etc generated for every other user.
Therefore two completely independent contractors for example could view absolutely everything that is going on with eachother. Absolutely ludicrous.
This is certainly a fundamental and very basic requirement which any project manager would expect out of the box.
Zohoprojects however seems not to care about it. We contacted them many times about this issue to find a workaround however there is none. We got a nice apology from India but unfortunately that is not enough. This lack of functionality can not be omitted. It is essential.

All it needs is a tick box within each project titled "Tick for Assigned users to be able to view tasks and milestones only"

In summary:
If you are intending to use zohoprojects to manage one or more contractors and employees for your business then DON´T. You could do more damage to your business through this lack of privacy functionality than good if you do. As every project user can see EVERYTHING that everyone else is doing including any login or sensitive information that is posted. There is no way of making any message or task private. Also ALL client information can be viewed by EVERY user also.
Zoho does have a solution to client information being visible to all the users which is to set up one project for clients and one for workers.
Surely that negates the complete purpose of the system in the first place?

All I can say is "It´s a shame".

Unless they fix it soon they will certainly lose huge amounts of customers and revenue just the same as they have now lost ours.

Pros

When there are problems with the platform a very apologetic response from India arrives in your mailbox explaining that there is no solution.

Cons

no privacy between users
no privacy for clients from users
