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.

Currently the best software for timeline construction beside MS Projects

Project Libre is the only timeline application we use in our company. It is easily accessible by anyone (being opensource) and the export feature works great too.

Pros

It can basically do everything MS Project can do at the price point of $0.

Cons

The user interface of the software is very dated, it is very clear the software is written for function and not for aesthetics.

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.

A good alternative for low budget planning projects

1) Visual help for Project scheduling 2) Resource administration easiness 3) Timelines for tasks and complete project

Pros

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.

Cons

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.
