I really like the user interface; you can configure it for your needs. I also like that you can choose the appearance of your Dashboard (tasks in the form of panels or as a list). It is easy to create tasks, organize them and monitor their implementation....

The best is process and concept of this PM Tool. Especial, I like the Cost management module and some Online planner ssuch as Online Planner, Agile Planner and Kanban.

It is buggy and difficult to use at times. It does not lend its self to ease of use.
