Easy Projects helps with attaching files with the tasks. It helps my team a lot since we don't lose project files (e.g. design files or fonts can be attached with tasks and shared with team members.) Helps with reports and all other required stuff for projects management.

I am a user of this product. I've found getting over security hurdles and being able to get the data we put into the system back out for our own reporting to be the biggest drawbacks.

We've been using Easy Projects for almost two years and it has been very easy to work with. There was minimal training, because the software was very self-explanatory and easy to learn on your own.

Pros

I like that at any given moment, I can see what my team is working on. I love the "my assignments" view, which helps me stay on task as my work keeps me on weekly deadlines. I also value the ability to discuss items related to a certain task through the message boards.

Cons

The guest user interface is not very intuitive to use. It's also frustrating that guest users can't track their hours when assigned to a task. The email notifications are also a bit excessive. I receive two or three notifications simply stating that a task has closed.

Pros

This product is as the title states "Easy". It is easy to use, easy to implement, easy to manage and easy to create reporting. Support team is very helpful and the fact that the company is always implementing new features to make the system even more functional and easy to use is a huge bonus.

Cons

You cannot easily print a time line w/details. There are many situations at our company when we need to print a timeline and to my knowledge this cannot be done.

Collaboration has become easier using Easy Projects. It allows files to be shared with colleagues and we can get input from many people while working on the files. Status reports are easily exported and getting a summary of projects is not difficult anymore.

The software is generally easy to use with a lot of capabilities. They are consistently improving it and the staff has been extremely helpful and are wonderful to deal with. There is a lot of customization available.

Cons

The mobile is a waste. It provides extremely limited functionality and doesn't allow access to the many features of the main program.

The Activity Center list of projects is not easy to navigate - if the projects are listed by number, "1070" will come before "110" - it is sorted number by number and not taken as a whole.

Pros

We are an in-house CPG creative department of four. Easy Projects houses all of our creative projects/activities. The Creative team can see every project and its status at anytime. It also generates a resource report so see when my designers are over or under allocated I can make the necessary adjustments within the schedule to ensure the workload is at manageable level and adjusting schedules is easy and right at your fingertips. Easy projects holds all projects notes, so you don't have to go digging through emails. The upgrades to the system have been ongoing and great improvements but at a great price! The system is versatile and flexible to meet anyone's needs.

Cons

It is difficult to get the entire organization access to view all projects and status and our workload. They don't need full access but viewable access to activity center without paying for a full license per user.

I really like the way it formats projects and allows you to see projects and task in a very linear, yet visual way. The customer service chat bar is also really helpful and responsive. Nothing about the foundation of this program is too difficult or hard to learn, and there is a lot of future capabilities possible.

Cons

Some of the future capabilities are still in progress. For example, the Kaban boards are functional and work, yet there are still some ways that they can expand the usefulness of the feature. It is a big up and coming project management software with a lot of potential.

I use it every day and could not do my job without it.

Pros

I like the ability to to customize my view so that I can only see what is most important for me in my role. I also enjoy the ability to filter for projects based on the various fields a project can be categorized by. How I use EasyProjects has evolved over time as I have learned more about the features it offers.

Cons

There are many times that I say to myself, "I wish it could do this" or "I wish they made this feature more simple. For example, the reporting features can do amazing things but I find myself struggling at times to get the data/reporting that I want. I also wish the EasyProjects had more abilities to work with other software. I have tried to use Zapier to connect a few things but what is offered is very limited.

This software makes keeping track of my multiple projects much easier and if I have forgotten anything the email notifications remind me. It really has evolved how I do Project Management. It just needs the ability to show the Clients the Project Plan and Gantt view that I as the PM work on and it would be fantastic.

Pros

Makes Project Management easier and is far more user friendly than standard Project Plans. Information can be edited and updated quickly. If you can't remember what to do the walk through guides are fantastic.

Cons

Presentation of the Project Plan to Clients is the only key fault. What you as the PM work with in the Activity Center is a fantastic view of the whole project, making it easy to see where things are at but this view can't be handled over nicely to the client. there are some reports and exports that an be used but non are as good and present as nicely.

Increased Productivity and better full Project Management from my PM's. Raised awareness for Clients on Project Progress via the Email Notifications. It just needs to offer the Guest User the full Project and Gantt view as seen in the Activity center and this tool is unbeatable!

Pros

The configurability and what is offered to the PM in functionality use. The Notifications are also great. The whole tool really offer exceled value for a PM. If the Project Plan and Gantt view as the PM sees it in the Activity Center could be offered to the Guest Users as well in a View Mode this would become the Ultimate PM tool, there just isn't another like it!

Cons

The look and feel of the Reporting as it is not that presentable for Clients. And Particularly that you can't offer the same amazing Project and Gantt view that the PM gets to the client. The Guest license is a fantastic idea for the clients but it would be revolutionary if you can add a full "View" of the project and Gantt, exactly as the PM sees it in the Activity Center. this view is the most valuable with a client but unfortunately it is only available to the PM.

There are just a couple of things that are less intuitive and have become nitpicky aggravations for me (like trying to filter to view "my" projects and forgetting that I need to change the filter to project resource rather than activity). It is great to have that level of granularity, but could still use some polishing.
