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.

  • Microsoft Project allows users to input a large and varied amount of detail pertinent to a specific project and then creates numerous varied out reports, as per the specific needs of a certain user working on that project.
  • Microsoft Project is very flexible in relation to the familiarity of a specific user with the Project. Someone with very little knowledge of Project can still input some data and receive some useful reports, without using the whole capability of the package.
  • Project allows a varied types of data to be inputted, such as definition of various subtasks related to the project, time information about the original estimates for tasks and the actual figures, monetary information about the cost of all items required to complete a project (such as rate per hour of specific participants working of a project, cost of equipment to be bought or rented, cost of materials required for project execution, etc).
  • A Project Manager very conversant with Project can get a very large number of reports, each one for a specific need.

For basic schedule building, which is what I primarily use it for, is great and very easy. I don't really understand much else although I would like to learn because everything I do use it for is very easy to do and learn

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.

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

Other tools are better for Agile projects, but our organization does more of a Waterfall-Agile combo, which leans more on the Waterfall side. Project can do everything other tools can do, but is easier to use and understand. The learning curve with Project is much easier than with other tools I've used.

  • Project has been nothing but positive for our organization. It allows me to estimate duration and tasks associated before initiatives begin. It also helps planning work and budgeting in relation to other organizational initiatives. I wish all of our departments used Project when planning, beginning, and completing projects.
  • Bottom line: Project saves us time and holds project teams accountable to complete milestones on time.
