Pros

Gantt Charts and time management sheets work great and are definitely what we use the most. The ability to assign resources to a task is also really neat. The feed style is easy to navigate and intuitive, kind of like scrolling through facebook.

Cons

High learning curve for new users. Some of our team had difficulty getting acquainted with it. Cannot save filtered views. Free version is not very useful, but we were only using it as a trial to see if we liked the software.

Project Management tool with wide capablities but lack a bit of common sense!!

Zoho provides great capabilities within their tools, but the problem is the user experience is horrible. This can be seen in both their project management and CRM tool.

Pros

Fixed price and not based on number of users.
Time tracking and Gantt chart as well as the ability of having different view of the tasks. For example we use the classic view for project management and Kanban view for task management and internal run of the business.
Task list and sub tasks capabilities, as well as being able to allocate resources to subtasks.
The ability to create an account for clients for limited view of the project.
file storage and management, as well as document editor and spreadsheet editor.

Cons

Here I will talk about the hidden problems that you won't notice unless you used the tool in real life projects.
Can't save your filtered view and each time one logs in to their account they need to choose their view and apply the filter.
when the subtasks timelines are not controlled by the timeline of the main task which doesn't make sense. For example if I create a main task that starts at the beginning of the month and finish by the end of that month, it is a common sense that all the subtasks should fall within this period.
The tool is complicated to use and not easy to navigate and that put off some of our engineers to get active on it.

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.

Likes Least

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.

It opened a new way to look at Projects from an Organizational point of view.

Pros

The product is user friendly and will update events to an external email account. It has a mobile app which helps when I'm out of the office.

Cons

It would be nice if this product integrated more with the Zoho People. Also more capability in the mobile app would be helpful.

Ease of project wise tracking of efforts for Profit/Loss analysis.

Pros

Easy to use by employees to fill their time logs on daily basis for authentic capturing of efforts.
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

Tired to sign up and try to use but they only list time zones in Europe and Africa. Not one American time zone - which will make it impossible to synchronize our project management.

Use only in Europe or Africa.

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

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.

Zoho Projects is very consistent in terms of easy of use and flexibility as the other products of the Zoho Suite. There is only one feature that it would be great to be included is to have a programmed vs executed Chart, and a Budget control (programmed vs Executed)

Lack of a good budget control
