  • Reporting is easy to see and produce.
  • Adding and updating is very quick and intuitive.
  • Resource Allocation is really simple and easy to see.
  • Allow stakeholders to track progress through the Client Portal.
  • Sometimes it's hard to navigate and things can get lost especially with different tiers within tasks.
  • Filtering through projects can be more confusing because we have so many users on the tool.
  • The searching for projects is the most frustrating part of the software.

  • Easy Projects has a really nice UI. It's really easy [to] work there and make our projects easy to follow.
  • Great support. A few times I had to talk with support about API connections and they answered me quickly and kindly.
  • It's stable. I cannot remember a day when Easy Projects' platform [was] down, so it's really STABLE.
  • Charts and reports are very easy to use
  • More custom charts options.
  • Recent update remove[d] the option to "save as" an attachment file, so [it made] more difficult the files/documents' organization.
  • Set or find a filter with "date" is hard to do. Many times someone in our team makes the mistake to modify all dates in a project because dates range in the dashboard task looks like a filter, or we don't have a date filter.
  • API or conections to another tools like PowerBi or Tableau
  • Better filters, is really hard find filter to a date range.

  • Project management gets very easy with Easy Projects.
  • Accurate analysis and tracking multiple projects.
  • Resource allocation along with checking their availability.
  • Number of notifications.
  • We can't change the task progress like the project manager can. I can just update as "I am done" at the end of the task, thus I can't notify if my task is 50% complete.
  • There can be a space to note down the project learning.

  • Lets me keep track of what I bill to each project throughout the week.
  • Generates custom reports so I know how much of my time is going to each project.
  • Doesn't seem to have any bugs that I encounter.
  • I get paid biweekly, so I need to track my overall hours every two weeks. It would be nice if I didn't need a custom date range to generate reports for a two week period.

  • Easy Projects is great for project management. It allows you to assign users, set tasks and end dates, and keep it all together in one working file/job. It's a project manager's dream -- you can look inside and see exactly what is going on and any missed deadlines.
  • Easy Projects allows good customization of the fields. We have worked it so that in a job file, we can enter info about things specific to publication design -- size, file format, delivery location, etc. And we've been able to change these further over time as our needs change.
  • Easy Projects allows for archiving of completed jobs. You don't have to see them every time you log in, but it's great to be able to go back and search through completed jobs (even several years back) to see what was done last time, who was assigning, costs, etc.
  • Easy Projects allows you to pull reports and export them. This has proved helpful when we needed an overall log of jobs for a client or to pull a large number of costs.
  • Easy Projects has some problems when it comes to accessing the site via different methods/browsers. It is either very slow or never works on a tablet. It is not smart-phone friendly. And it stopped working for us in Firefox -- all we could use is Safari or Chrome (we are a Mac-based office).
  • Easy Projects' email notifications are overwhelming. I turned them off completely since I was getting messages every time one little detail was added or changed.
  • While the reports are great, they are somewhat hard to pull. It takes a lot of trial and error -- I would not say the reports are an "intuitive area."
  • The biggest by far is what we fondly call "the screen of death." When you mark the last open task associated with a job as complete, a screen pops up that asks if you want to close the overall job, as well. The "yes" field is pre-selected, so if you are overzealous and click through quickly, it automatically closes the job. I don't know why they think this feature is helpful. We have so many staffers that complain they suddenly can't find their open job -- well, it's been marked completed and goes into the archive.

  • Easy Projects has all the basic features like task, time, budget, issue management, billing and invoicing.
  • It also has a clear, customizable Dashboard with a Project Health chart, Resource Loading chart, Hours by Project chart, Estimated vs Actual Hours chart and widgets.
  • It improves team collaboration with customizable real-time e-mail notifications and alerts, instant file sharing, message boards and due task reminders available.
  • Low-priced monthly accounts can support unlimited projects.
  • Easy Projects can be quite difficult to learn to use, because it is an advanced and multifunctional tool. However, all paid accounts also include five free hours of training.
  • You can’t create dependencies between projects, which may be quite inconvenient if you have more than one project.
