A Cost Effective Project Management Tool.

It is an easy to use and cost effective project management tool.

Pros

Projectlibre is tool that is being used across the entire organization. We use it in tracking of projects and allows us to keep organized when having multiple projects. One thing that makes it our preferred option is that it cost effective and also has a user friendly interface.More to that i like it s hierarchical organization of projects.

Cons

Though the interface is use friendly, i think it is little bit old and need some updating. I also wish the editing and graphics features updated.

Projectlibre Review

Pros

If you can throw away everything you know about other spreadsheet services when you use Projectlibre, it will be easy to pick up and understand. You have to remember that while it looks similar to a spreadsheet, it is an entirely different platform with different purpose and functionalities. Once you get into the hang of it, Projectlibre will make managing projects and resources a breeze. Another pro about this software is that there are tons of help videos and articles online if you ever get stuck.

Cons

What we least liked about Projectlibre was the large learning curves for newcomers. It took a little while to get the hang of and understand what some of the prompts mean.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Project

Reasons for choosing Projectlibre

We chose ProjectLibre as our project tracking tool because it has a free, fairly comprehensive version: Projectlibre Open Source.

"ProjectLibre" does have it's short comings but nearly at par with other similar softwares.

As I have been using this almost everyday, the demand for changing schedules dates frequently can be a drag. But this product, ProjectLibre has been a very useful tool in getting things done in the office.

Pros

What's amazing about this product is that it is a multi-platform product. It can be installed on a Windows and Linux computer. Am running ProjectLibre on a Linux computer and it is really the best alternative out there in the market to Microsoft Projects. Also, the printing capabilities, wherein you can adjust the timeline scale and paper size formats. This is the one of the amazing features for an open-source product. Our company is oriented towards open-source softwares and previously we were using TaskJuggler2.3.1 which has also powerful but has it's own learning curve issues.

Cons

So far as I have been constantly using this product for a number of years now. I think a project header title is missing. But, nevertheless what I do I put the project title at the footer line instead. It would be nice if someday they could add more flexibility of changing the colors of the gantt bar.

Manage time

I like it, graphically is nice and all the functions and tools give the Gantt chart a very simple look.

Pros

I liked the simplicity of the use, I used this for a class to explain how Gantt charts work and it was really interesting to all students.

Cons

Even when it is a simple tool to manage and administrate task in a timeline it will not work for a company, because it is just the Gantt chart with dependencies, so if you are looking for a complete software it will not be helpful.

Good alternative to Microsoft Project

I was looking for a cheap or free alternative to MS Project to plan and follow my projects.

Pros

ProjectLibre is a real offline project management software with all the featured needed to plan and follow a project. And above all it's absolutly free.

Cons

The interface is not that complete compared to MS Project. Sometime it's a little bit disapointed. For example it's quiet difficult to change the size of the gantt view.
