There is no desktop app for Any.do. This is the only con I can see now.

Microsoft Project

Project is very well suited for large projects involving numerous personnel, equipment and materials,and expected to take many months or even years to completion. Also, it is useful when the stakeholders of the project are rather different in their capacity and require rather different types of reports (strictly financial reports, slippage in schedule and how the schedule can be brought back, etc.)On the other hand, a company specializing in projects that are relatively simple and only have a span of a few weeks or a couple of months would be better off adopting a simpler Project Management tool, one that costs less and has a much shorter learning curve.

  • Free to start
  • Better task postpone options
  • Easy to use

  • I love how easy it is to plot milestones and tasks, and who is responsible for those tasks. Being able to quickly see the scope of work, start and finish dates, along with the resources scheduled to perform those tasks, is such a time and productivity saver.
  • Changes to the project due to scope or duration due to lack of resources are easy to make with Project. I can easily adjust my schedule, add new tasks, and move milestones and finish dates with ease.
  • The reporting tools are great. I can see what percentage of milestones have been completed in real time and share that with sponsors and management.

It's so easy to use and I'm able to make it look however I want it to. It allows me to communicate to my team on exactly what needs to be done and when.

Self-directed help is usually just frustrating. Help Desks don't seem to be knowledgeable enough to provide good answers. There doesn't appear to be a way to get immediate help without great expense.

Alternatives Considered

Any.do is simple and easy to use. I'm huge fan of Wunderlist, but now a fan of Any.do too.

We did not evaluate any other tools. We are a Microsoft shop and use their products almost exclusively. I believe that there are a number of alternatives out there but they do not offer the range of features in one product that Microsoft Project does. It is worth the investment.

  • Allows my team to better manage DB conversion projects from end to end
