Try OmniPlan if you are looking for a better option. but this one is still good.
I should mention I used Mac Version.
- You can export your project to Presentations
- You can Email tasks to your self/resource
- Gantt chart!
- Good UI
- Details: you can Only use 6 Currency symbols
- The duration is fixed, or if it isn't the properties to change it is not easy to find.
- Most of us would not use Microsoft Clippy, but we liked having it around. Some software has similar guides, it would have been nice if this programme had that too.

QA is terrible. How do you release a windows 10 flavor of the office suite without actually looking at any of it? Seriously? Screen quality for menu's and prompts is horrible. In Project, bottom bar is 50% of height it needs to be, so ALL the icons used for views and such are unusable/indistinguishable. You really need to clean this all up. It is a mess. conceptdraw Pro's menu's, panel windows, etc. are equally bad/mutated. this product on windows 10 has serious flaws.
price vs. ms project is good. integrated suite across conceptdraw pro office is a perk but needs a lot of work.
Menu's, pull-down's, graphics are often unusable due to fonts so small they're unreadable. View, Panels, Customer Properties. What is displayed is almost unusable. menu choices overlap each other. There's a set of code somewhere that ignores Windows environmental and screen settings entirely. Changing fonts, sizing, screen resolution, nothing works so its clearly buggy software. Maybe Mac version works better. Seems like this was for Mac then translated for Windows? I am using the very latest version of all of it (april 2018). They've been promising major upgrade for several months. Hope they fix it. Else it will be time to choose something else.

easy access to project information - quick data input and ocean of useful information, so it's easy to share knowledge in project management area
I use ConceptDraw Project, because it helps in daily work with projects information. I got excellent tools to drive projects & report progress. Except many predefined reports I can create my own set of reports. We can import/export in many formats. As element of ConceptDraw Office, Project solution can be presented as interactive visual dashboard with drill-down option, presenting live data from ConceptDraw Project. It's easy to navigate in the most important areas: resources, Gantt chart and share.
I hope to see even more options to work with MS Excel spreadsheets and maybe new views of projects .

I've been looking such solution for ages. I am looking for a project management solution that integrates mind maps, process flows, timing schedules (gannt charts) and can be exported to MS Project and MS word.
Have tested ConceptDraw on the advice of friend and I am very impressed with it, as these helped me when I've started my new position. I'm on Mac now and use windows laptop as well, so for me the ability of ConceptDraw to work on both is priceless.

ConceptDraw Office combines mind mapping and project tools for reasonable price. Plus, it supports Mindjet and ms project files.

Project is actually very similar to Microsoft Project, but CS Odessa have their InGyre system which allows the different tools to work together.

I got Conceptdraw project and it's just great. I run same license on my macbook and PC desktop. Tool has live dashboards with task tracking, project diagrams via Gantt charts and Pert charts and a variety of reports for project planning, monitoring resources and usage as well as detailing budget and costs

We use this app in our bookstores. It is easy to control your project and predict any risks.

I like to recommend to PMs of small projects the ConceptDraw suite. You may like to look at ConceptDraw MindMap, because you can import it into ConceptDraw Project as a WBS. Also ConceptDraw MINDMAP and PROJECT use the same document to work with project. I usually come back from Cantt Chart to MindMap to rework and improve projects.
Big plus is the ability to export to MS Word, MS Project and Evernote.Thanks so much for the education account :)
