    I like it, since it comes with all the Zoho suite and integrates well then is something that I would use.

    Pros

    I like the fact that it is included on the Zoho suite and it's something that you will eventually use.
    The thing is that you can get stuff from the crm real quick with the easiness that it is to work with all the Zoho enviroment. But it is a good software actually.

    Cons

    It is somewhat hard to get running and understanding how to make stuff work in it. It should have a more simple way to do things

    Pros

    The interface is simple, intuitive and easy to use. It is a project management tool with all basic functionalities. They provide Timesheets, which help you in tracking time. You can keep track of your all projects by switching between multiple projects. You can check out the Kanban view to keep a track of the internal tasks. The application helps to list tasks and subtasks, and you can assign resources to these subtasks. Helps in creation of reports and forms for your project. Customer service and support team are very responsive. The application is easy to set up and allows easy navigation and configuration. Integrated with other applications like Zoho Bugs and G Suite applications.

    Cons

    The free version lacks a lot of features in comparison to the paid one. The absence of a group chats feature. The application encountered errors while working with QuickBooks. It is quite difficult to work on the mobile phone version. You can’t add multiple employees to different projects at the same time.

    Pros

    The fact that it's very easy to use. The documentation given is extensive and covers many details if you ever get stuck. Obviously, having a development background helps a lot in understanding their scripting language.

    Cons

    From time to time, I will encounter a technical issue that cannot be solved. Their support team helps me out but often will take 5+ days to answer which is not the best when you're actively developing something.

    Pros

    It is really easy to use, with an intuitive user interface. The project creation and adding task isn't hard

    Cons

    Not just Zoho Project, but the whole suite needs several improvements, there is a Zoho Sprint that should be integrated (task level) with Zoho Project, the same with Zoho Creator. The Project Managers needs that integration, otherwise, it is a nightmare to keep tracking the user stories and task.
    That's the major cons for Zoho, traceability should work for Project, User Stories, Task and even Test Cases

    Good for startup businesses.

    Pros

    Very good pricings, it is easy to access from anywhere, it is a user friendly app, you get used to it quickly.

    Cons

    One thing in common from all zoho apps is its lack of innovation in design, it is a dry design that could make you bored.

    Pros

    The software easily adopts backlog procedures. With Zoho, creating tasks lists is simplified and one can relocate task lists to a current sprint when priorities change. The software is also efficient with mobile technology.

    Cons

    Uploading and downloading files is time consuming using the software and the file sharing feature is equally limiting. The software is expensive for its simplified features especially for ten or more users.

    Enterprise-level functionality at a low price that really benefits our business. We're committed to this platform because of all it does at such a low price.

    Pros

    Zoho Projects has way more functionality that competitors in the same price range. We have unlimited internal and client users for one set (and very affordable) price, and we have all of the functionality (plus some) that we would find in far more expensive PM solutions.

    Cons

    Like other products in the Zoho family, support is difficult to get and exclusively comes from India. Functionality isn't always completely reliable, but it's rare that we need support.

    I don't like how it have to take a certain format to work. I have to turn my excel sheet into a different format which looses a lot of the layout properties.

    Good project tool for small projects and very useful for collaboration among members. The project template needs to be set-up by somebody that has managed projects before and has the trained eye for designing flows.

    Pros

    a Project management tool that offers much options and functionalities. It embeds collaboration as a core option. Free option will serve small projects that may work well enough for most business. Paid options will bring additional benefits.

    Cons

    complex to use and keep projects updated. collaboration tool is good but the tool lacks an "overall view" of where the project is standing as a whole (the focus is on individual tasks rather). Having a basic Gantt view of the overall project turned out very complex, close to impossible.

    This software is central to how we run our business and I would heartily recommend it. There are many alternative solutions out there but this one does the job well for us and is very cost effective for small development and testing teams.

    Pros

    Very easy to use, consistently reliable. Great notifications and flexibility of configuration. Easy categorization of types of issues that can be tracked in a number of different ways.

    Cons

    Like most Zoho products, it is intended for a mainstream audience which can make it very easy to use but sometimes, it can be a little limited for power users although we have always been able to find a workaround for solutions that we are trying to achieve.

    Compared to other products that I've configured and used, this one takes the cake. It's just so easy. I find it much easier to work with, and that's resulted in greater productivity and visibility for my stakeholders.

    Pros

    Having used other products, I have found Zoho Projects to be the easiest to configure and use as both an administrator of the product and as a project manager. Every feature that I need to effectively manage a waterfall project from a scheduling perspective is included in this tool. Top that off with the Zoho Apps and collaboration features, and you have a ecosystem that that could rivals any of the larger providers.

    Cons

    There are some Agile features in Zoho Projects, but to completely implement an Agile PM approach, you should consider Zoho Sprints instead.

    I would like to find a way to change the start date on tasks within a project when they're entered incorrectly or change. Otherwise it's easy to use.
