    Pros

    Forecast's easy to use interface and technology allows me to track the progress of my company's projects and forecast for the future. The customer service is also extremely quick to reply and answer any questions.

    Cons

    It would be great to have the ability to create my own reporting within forecast. Although there are a lot of reporting features, there a few that my company needs. Just a few more options would be helpful.

    Forecast is a very great tool to organize yourself, especially in an agency with multiple projects and the need to have a control on planning and costs.

    Pros

    Forecast is really good to keep a planning on tracks and to have a view of your costs during the project.

    Cons

    With Forecast, you need to be very organized and the software is challenging because you can't start if you don't know what you are doing.

    I can track my time in an amazing way and have all the information I need at hand for each task and also for every project

    Pros

    I have been a TFS user for years and never found a better management tool until I found Forecast. It is the clearest tool on the market so far, easy to use, full of functionalities. There's a lot o pros to it:

    - highly customizable
    -the time recording is amazing
    -comments and subtasks on cards are awesome
    -you can also tag other members of the team if you want them to read something

    Cons

    -when i record time, the record pop up is too small for the tasks names in the select
    -i'd like a clearer way to mark done subtasks rather than a checkbox

    Pros

    The extensive overview over the time spent. Assignment of individuals to tasks. Seamless cross-platform interaction.

    Cons

    Stability is an issue at times. Navigating through various elements of the app in search of where you need to be can be problematic at first.

    increased staff efficiency , better communication with clients and delivering projects smoother within budgets

    Pros

    I trailed around 7/8 different project management softwares over a 6-month period, the main problem was i needed both project management and resource management which proved really hard to find. Either one was good at one and not the other etc but finding forecast really dealt with all my needs and although its taken 6 months to get all the data in and staff using effectively, the benefits have been fantastic. Projects are running smoother and we can control the budgets better.

    Cons

    There isnt much i find wrong with this software and the team are really good at taking on board our ideas and requests, i think the scheduling could be improved a little, but the forecast team are always looking to improve on a great product and im sure they will continue to improve.

    Pros

    The timelines are great - it helps me see the "big picture" roadmap as well as my team's workload at any given point of a product's life cycle.

    Cons

    The UI is okay, and the UX is not the best - but once you get the hang of the product, it will pay off.

    So far Forecast has addressed most of my company's requests for new features and functionality and made them part of the system.

    Pros

    The tool we used before didn't have any forecasting features our company needed. I really like the Time feature because it is simple, fast, and intuitive to use. I can easily see my projects, cards, and enter my time all in one view. It's always difficult switching systems after so many years, but I can instantly see the benefits of using Forecast as a sophisticated, easy-to-use platform. Forecast does a great job at tailoring to fit our company's needs and taking our feedback requests seriously.

    Better timesheet control, by card and by project.

    Pros

    Easy of use. Every feature available has a polished UX, that is simple, fast and clean. The way you create a project and associate cards (task) makes our job easier.

    Cons

    There are some features that I really missed: more reports, more flexibility on rates. Sometimes I need to export csv file just to combine with other information that's already in Forecast.

    I can both plan the schedule of my team on high level and on task basis

    Pros

    The variety of features. You can both schedule and plan on a high level and also dive down to the little things.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, there are still quite a lot of bugs and bulkiness.
    I think the feature that is missing the most is being able to see on the scheduler that the resource was already allocated with tasks in the projects.

    Pros

    Forecast enhances the project management experience. It is helpful to have engineers see and enter time on their own projects.

    Cons

    The website is virtually unusable for anyone who is visually impaired and uses screen reading software. There is little to no keyboard access and the site does not follow accessibility standards.
