Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Project

Microsoft Project is currently being used by project managers in our company. Microsoft Project is used to schedule and manage different projects within the company. The Gantt charts and trackers are useful for tracking projects. Built in templates are also useful for project management. Using Microsoft Project Server, files can be shared with everyone involved with the project.

Pros

  • Gantt chart tracker is very good at tracking projects.
  • Templates are very useful for different projects that managers are involved in.

Cons

  • Beginner users need some help to get started with Microsoft Project. It needs better documentation.
  • There's no real-time updating and Microsoft Project does not work well with multiple users at the same time.
  • It improved the time involved in project management.
  • It pointed out which projects are not going well and can be improved.
Microsoft Project was selected because it integrates well with other Microsoft products and has better tracking and visualization tools that can be used with different projects.
So far the support has been good. However, better documentation may be more helpful.
