Download freely and easy to use......if there aren't constraints requiring Microsoft Project implementation......Project Libre will suit quite well to creating new projects across the widest file categories and project types .....at our company we are extremely happy with Project Libre's flexibility and ease of use. It is quite intuitive to operate as well. Project Libre is a welcome software solution as an addition to our operating environment. Project Libre absolutely helped our company organize our file project load, as well as allowing us to use fewer organization software solutions. Keep in mind it is freeware so there is a lack of readily available direct online customer service support however one can access online tutorials quite readily from existing user forums. This user support is most helpful....we would recommend Project Libres use to any company and users interested.
Extremely easy to use , Project Libre supports a wide variety of tasks including scope, time, and budget needed to create our local projects for company use.
The software is supported on all major OS platforms including MAC OS, Linux, and MS Windows.
Project Libre projects can take some time to load when the project sizes are larger and there is a relative lack of customer support, but we believe that is to be expected when dealing with an open source and freeware software......not much to dislike frankly. Be aware that plenty of curated user community specific online support materials exist and are most helpful.

Planning of all the activities to be carried out in the execution of a project and thus compare how the project is going with respect to the planned time
helps to organize and plan all the actions that must be fulfilled, easy economic installation Easy visualization of the tools you can export and import can also be exported to pdf, it is compatible with your Microsoft similar one.
some tools and errors that the system presents some specifically when you request the help in the system eas is the only thing that I would love to improve your other functions are perfect

Improve the management and administration of projects.
That I can open and use documents that I have worked with Microsoft Project, and at least what I have done as a Gantt chart, tables, costs and tables, I can migrate them to Project Free without any problem.
Jean Carlos from Consejo Federal Gobierno
The ease with which we can perform the analysis of resource management through the option histogram, and that allows to see the graph of use of each resource and compare it with its availability, is what I like the most since with that information it can be decided if it is necessary to increase the availability of the resource or redistribute its allocation .
What I like the least is that I have tried to create a single resource base for several projects and to indicate when I have a resource conflict but I have not managed to carry out this action.
keiver from consejo federal de gobierno
its license is completely free, it is also compatible with gnu / linux, Microsoft and macOS being this very favorable for its users, it is also an excellent program to plan, manage, direct and manage a project since the usability and the interface are usually very similar to the Microsoft project

Projectlibre allows to export and save projects in PDF version and offers good options for printing reports.
Ana Karina from Fondo de Compensación Interterritorial
The best thing in this software allows you to save the baselines in order to make comparisons between the initial planning and the final realization of the project.
It is a simple tool offers only the tools necessary to manage a project, and does not allow management of the critical chain method
nirmal from GMR Group
I use it for managing construction projects, found the software very useful and made my task very easy to achieve.
Its very simple and easy to use, more easy than microsoft project, its very intuitive . Has a number of advanced features which are very useful for project management.
its cloud support and collaboration features need some improvement. the GUI could be done more user friendly which will make it very appealing.
Carlos from Index
1) Visual help for Project scheduling
2) Resource administration easiness
3) Timelines for tasks and complete project
This software lets you manage projects with a reasonable level of complexity, such as having multiple tasks simultaneously, specific task/job completion dates, predeceasing tasks, and resource managing, by providing you with a good set of reports and data views that may vary from a simple lines and columns table, up to a Gantt chart (a tasks & calendar arrange),and ultimately a critical path diagram.
When entering records for the tasks of the project, the program has an issue when trying to make a correction in a cell (mainly a text one like the task name/description), if you make a "typo", and you try to delete the letter by using the "Back space" key, it may delete the whole line instead of the typo. This is time consuming since it makes you have to start entering the record all over again.

It is a decent representation of MSproject and for free it is certainly worth every penny. It allows for most of the same basic functions as some of the older versions of MSProject
The software is very glitchy. Some people have experienced the view of the software being very small and unreadable. Others have had difficulty with the software even loading properly on their machines.
