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

Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project is extremely well-suited for larger businesses to tackle long-term project management tasks. Furthermore, it works exceptionally well when the software is accompanied by the entire Microsoft suite. The ability to integrate all aspects of the Microsoft business experience are invaluable and offer unique synergies when navigating Project. I have very much enjoyed Project on the user-interface front and have found the entire process of setting up large scale projects to be one of the most intuitive out of the software that I have used. As stated before, I believe Project is ideal for medium to large-scale enterprises that already subscribe to the entire Microsoft suite of apps. I would be more hesitant if I were working within a smaller business as there are many more cost-effective options out there.

  • Better task postpone options
  • Easy to use

Microsoft Project

  • 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.

  • Integration with Evernote
  • Integration with Sunrise Calendar

Microsoft Project

  • The Project software package, while being very powerful, it also has a rather lengthy learning curve. A fresh Project Manager which didn't use Project before (due to being in a different role, or using until now a different project management tool) and put in charge of a project having as a requirement the utilization of Microsoft Project for a new project starting very soon, will have a hard time to assimilate all aspects of the package, if he wants to take advantage of Project's full capabilities.
  • While not being exaggerated, the cost of the software package is relatively high (around $650.00) This is maybe not a lot for a company needing one or two packages, but is relevant to a company needing to procure 20 packages.
  • I would like to see more specialty books pertinent to Project. 'Leaning Microsoft Project Step-by-Step' issued by Microsoft themselves and used by me when I started learning Project is a bit cumbersome, unlike other books in their series for Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.

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

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

Microsoft Project

In all cases where I didn't use Project, i used an application given by Excel freely as a template, when you open Excel 2013 or higher. It is basically a Gantt chart, with several capabilities built in. All what is necessary for you to do in order to quickly get a basic Gantt chart, is to create a basic Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), including names assigned to each task and the estimated number of hours that will be expanded on each task. This information is filled in the lower side of an Excel sheet displayed in landscape view. On the upper portion of the sheet, a Gantt chart is immediately created. It is a very simple tool, no learning curve required and is free. I do like it a lot and use it a lot, since lately I'm involved in many simultaneous projects, however, each one of them has a short span, not exceeding two weeks.

Microsoft Project

  • Keeps us on track for all major initiatives - shows where things are slipping and helps identify when a specific goal/task might need to be crashed as well as down stream impacts of doing/not doing
