Pros

Just like every other Microsoft tool, this is also Amazing. It is an excellent project management tool. I find the Gantt Chart view especially useful. Ease of use and collaboration with other team members (once you learn how to use it), easy on the eyes especially when managing many tasks.
Tasks tracking and resource management are also aspects that I find really useful.

Cons

The learning curve is quite long. It takes a lot of time to understand as it appears intimidating. But once you get a hang of it, you just want to use it to manage all your projects.

Pros

This software is SUPER scalable to the level of detail that you or your organization requires. You can do a simple GANNT chart or a major project charter complete with GANNT, PERT, allocation tables, dependencies, contingencies and cost all included.

Cons

It can be overwhelming when you first get into using the product if you do not have some requisite basic training. It is also VERY helpful to have some basic understanding of Project Management skills.

My experience has been very good I have obtained great benefits, I think it is necessary that many people know it and know how good and ideal this great software is, I think it is perfect I love it and can recommend my colleagues without any problem

Pros

I think I like everything, this is one of those software that make your life easier, I think I like its interface first of all, on the other hand I consider it to be very complete and there are many tools to work with.

I like it because it allows you to work from anywhere, allows group work which is perfect, among several people can carry out a project or make changes if necessary.

Within your tools I like the part of creating graphics and creating diagrams which are good within any project.

In general it is a software that I love and I think it is useful for anyon

Cons

It's perfect for me, I like this software a lot.

I could mention more than a disadvantage a recommendation and is that sometimes it is usually expensive to pay initially to try the software, should have its good free versions where people know, feel gsuto get your best results and pay there because worth

wow, the truth is that it is one of those software that is worth trying and worth knowing, I think it is one of the most I like about Microsoft and it always has new and impressive things.

I like it because it is really useful for managing projects, it facilitates the editing and handling of them, in addition to this it allows teamwork where among several you can collaborate in different projects, I really like this software and it seems very full.

He adds that he has many tools that are really practical, such as being able to create many diagrams and improving the visual part of the projects and so people tend to understand much more.

I like e suna great tool, very important software to kno

Cons

As I mentioned earlier this is a great but great softare, I think it's worth even paying it, there comes the detail. Sometimes it is very uncommon for people to pay a high price for software that they may just want to try, this is what happens with this software, the test membership is so expensive, and not everyone risks testing if have another program

I consider that it is something that could be improved, besides it is clear that nobody will regret after trying it

I've used MS Project on several projects throughout my career. Project scheduling has never been easier as the auto-schedule configuration allows you to factor in dependencies, start/end dates, number of days to complete task and much more. You can also sync this software with O365 which is very convenient when working with cross-functional teams. Projects can be complex, however, scheduling doesn't have to be.

My only negative regarding this software is that it's costly. But, you get what you pay for!

Let me start off by saying I am not a project manager - in the way that people are actually trained to become a "project manager." I just happen to be a manager who manages projects. Therefore, there is a lot of language and termonolgy this software uses that quickly makes you realize it is catered for those with this specialized training. However, the average person can use this, though not to it's full ability. It feels a bit old, large, and clunky. Maybe if I was a PM, I'd love it, but for me Trello meets most of my needs (though it is not on the Microsoft PPM level) and is 100% cheaper.

Pros

They offer a free trial, I think it's 30 days and I definitely took advantage of that. I love all of the ways to get into the deep details of managing your project, from: resources to start and deadline dates, etc.

Cons

It uses termonoligy that is not known to the simple manager and more importantly, the cost, is ridiculosu for one person who just wants to do a better job at work.

Microsoft PPM is used throughout the comapny to keep track of project schedules and to coordinate task and resources.

Pros

Well it is fairly easy to use, the built in help is excellent. and you can find alot of online help also. it is very power and can be used in small and big projects alike.

Cons

The only aspect I think can be considered a con is you have to take some time to learn the application. once that is done it is smooth sailing.
