- I've had incidents of crashing and freezing of the screen a few times.
- Spreadsheet functionality (better than Google Sheets)
- Desktop downloads (highly functional, not internet-dependant
- Document formatting for printing
- Some tools are difficult to find (different shortcuts than typical)
- user interface isn't the prettiest or most intuitive (just takes some getting used to compared to Google alternatives)
Not as great for presentations or reports that require detailed visual/graphic design, doesn't have the same level of quality pre-formatted templates that other programs have.
- Simplicity: tool easy to use
- Functional: a software that does what we need
- User friendly: excellent interface for all users

- Intuitive User Interface that aligns to other industry standard software
- Good support and documentation
- Niche features and customisation with view modes could be better.
- Better compatibility with Microsoft Project (import/export)
- Clearer and more intuitive steps for certain functions.
- Cost efficient
- Does adapt most simple functions of MS Project quite well
- In general a bit buggy, had more than one crash
- Doesn't have the features of a professional project management tool
- Missing especially VBA scripting
I wouldn't recommend it for more complex projects.
- Cloud-based platform (beta)
- Familiar interface - exactly like MS Project
- Free and open source
- Cross-platform - Mac and Linux support
- The UI is a bit dated
- It's more inline with Project 2009 but the core functionalities are all there

1) Access project plan created using MS Projects - MS Projects license is expensive and we cannot have all users assigned one. This is where ProjectLibre comes in
2) User interface is simple and friendly. It hardly takes anytime for anyone to get go with it
3) Printing options are friendly too - you are able to adjust paper sizes, timescales, etc.
- Creating Project plans are painless
- There are loads of printing customizations one can do
- Update frequencies are good
- Customer service is not there - I understand that the product is open source but some kind of forum with FAQs, etc. can come in handy
- App crashes at time for no reason. There have been instances where you try to create a new task and all the diagrams and other items get messed up
If you rely on Customer service, this is something that is almost non-existent (considering it is open source, it is not fair to expect one)
- Task Assignment and Accountability
- Tracking Tasks throughout the life of project
- Excellent visual representation of project progress
- Translation into KiSwahili and other African languages of wider communication would be great.
- It's hard not to compare ProjectLibre with MS Project because it really does have a lot of the same functionality. However, I wish the user interface was a bit more appealing and intuitive. Still, this is not a serious drawback.
- Visual management of time!
- Realistic management (multiple projects at once because not all projects operate independently of others where time is concerned).
- Data handling - reports, etc...
- I will get into this more, but comparisons. Comparison is the evil twin of this program.
- It opens Microsoft Project files, therefore making it somewhat unrestricted in use or sharing files from MS Project.
- It has a simple and familiar user interface.
- Can they please create some kind of collaboration tool among groups?
- The interface can do with some modernization.
- Compatible with Linux, Mac OS and Windows.
- Friendly interface.
- Translation of some words.
- Interface is not fast and fluid.
- Problems saving the file sometimes. The program closes.
- Create calendars for projects, tasks, and resources.
- Allocate material and human resources to tasks. Sequence tasks and use the main forms of dependencies between them.
- Evaluate the critical path of the project.
- ProjectLibre is great for project management. It allows us to establish milestones and timeline planning for projects.
- It allows us to stay organized among multiple projects.
- It is extremely simple to use with a simple interface. It takes little time to plan out a project with key dates and provides a nice graphic.
- The interface could use some updating. The design is old and clunky looking.
- The graphic design and editing features could be increased to provide a better overall presentation of the timeline.
- I would also like to see a quick dashboard of all my upcoming milestones related to my projects.
- Gantt chart
- Hierarchical organization of projects and tasks
- Descriptive fields for each line item
- An hourly timeline would enable minute-by-minute coordination of a same-day event.
- Printing abilities could be improved, especially with the Gantt chart.
