Saves time in planning and collaborating project

This software has help me and my colleague to create shortcuts to planning, creating and deploying project. The task can be marked with time frame and the system will send notification if the task is still not completed before the due date.

PROS

I really like template that are provided by Microsoft Project, it is highly customized to my project objective and my liking. The feature that i use the most can be pinned on the dashboard interface and keep it organized. Most of the user are using it, and there are no issue to shares the project file to my other colleague and they can open it without any compatibility problem.

CONS

Microsoft Project is quite pricey as we can't subscribe only the Microsoft Project itself, we have to buy all the software on the Microsoft suite to use it. If only they can let user to separately subscribing it, more user can will use it. Other thing that i dislike is, no video tutorial provided to teach user how to use the feature in the software.

Reasons for switching to Microsoft Project

Zoho Projects is not easy to learn and take times to learn its system.

Stay on top of your tasks with Microsoft Project

PROS

Microsoft Project is really convenient to used compared to other programs. It is extremely popular as a project management tool and allows for me to easily share files with others who also use the tool to stay organized.

CONS

I would like for the software to be a one time cost instead of an annual subcription which is really costly over time.

Reason for choosing Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project is widely used in the architecture and construction industry.
