Beautifully simple and easy to use

Float is a product I like using, and I wish some of its features and UX elements were in the other software that I use! We use Synergist for job and project management, but Float for scheduling because it UX is so much better than Synergist's scheduler tool.

Pros

Float's user interface and logic are inspirational. They have made the activity of coordinating multiple resources on multiple projects about as easy as it can be. They have paid a lot of attention to usability, efficient use of screen real estate and simple navigation. However the killer feature is the intuitive yet clever way that searching and data navigation work. All searching and filtering is done using a single search field, which offers indexed word search on pretty much everything including tags. There is also a well-worked out protocol for handling union and intersect searches.

Cons

The only real bugbear is that any user that can enter data into the system can define new values for any field. It isn't possible to centrally control lists such as task names, clients, job descriptions etc. This means that if you have more than one person using the system, very quickly you get different versions of the same thing being defined (e.g. job roles being slightly different) which makes it difficult to analyse across records. Not a dealbreaker, but I do think it should be possible to lock down lists of values. Also it would be good if you could zoom out the view a little more - if you're dealing with more than a dozen resources/projects.

Development company taking next steps in project management

A very positive experience allowing the company I work for to get better more accurate project plans and financial reports.

Pros

The ease of use as a one stop shop, browser based to allow all the development team (and subsiduary but linked teams) to see important dates like dev complete, bug fix windows, cert windows and release dates. The ability to quickly block out time for features and projects. The ability to add notes and details to tasks. Fully fleshed out holiday and time off structure. Robust financial reports possible with very high degree of accuracy for budget per project, per quarter, per annum. We used to get by with using Excel, we invested in Float and it has taken the companies' project planning to the next step. I would recommend Float for small to mid sized companies definitely, it is a great product boost and good way of reporting and seeing issues early.

Cons

it does not allow you to easily move a bunch of small tasks along in the timeline, that's my only main gripe, you can't band box select you have to shift select. Everything else is intuitive and easy.

Reasons for choosing Float

the website and videos showing features were clear and clean and one of my peers had previous experience and good reviews of the product and we were given a gratis time period to try things out, this helped us alot in making sure Float was the product for us.

Reasons for switching to Float

Excel was clunky and out schedule was increasing in ambition and scope.

Need to track people resources, this is the tool you need.

Overall, I really like Float. It is really easy to use. It is very customizable.

Pros

It's straightforward to add, archive, and customize your space. I love that you can give people various accesses. I love that I can look at a glance and see where everyone is at. In the last week or so, Float did a significant upgrade, and visually it's so much better.

Cons

Float can be a bit slow sometimes. I don't know if it's because it needs more bandwidth or what, but you need to be patient with it some days.

Float is a great scheduling tool for work teams

Float is a very useful and easy to use software that my team and I use everyday to manage our time.

Pros

The interface is very intuitive in planning your schedule. The schedule page is great for quickly seeing how the team scheduling is looking, with any gaps and overflows quite easily visible.

Cons

The finance and budget components of the software I don't find as useful, as they don't offer reporting in as much detail as required.
