The flexibility for each team member to take ownership of their schedule. And the regular updates for features, and response from the support team.
Missing some features we would like to see such as the time entry exporting. But the team are very responsive to feature requests.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
The variety of features. You can both schedule and plan on a high level and also dive down to the little things.
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.

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