The ease in setting up a project plan and managing available resources.

Ease of use of the software and of the application in our process

I like that with project I can keep up with my own projects. I love that I am able to put in a certain date and the tool will tell me when a project should complete based on the timelines I have in place.

Difficult to learn and use. Dependent on project team to enter their updates (status, documents, approvals) to move to the next steps within the application and keep current. May not always reflect the current status if PM and project team does not enter...

G2 Crowd User

There wasn't as much flexibility for information as we needed

G2 Crowd User in Government Relations

MS Project Server has room to grow in the risk management/decision tools area. The present libraries are enhanced SharePoint lists and not integrated in the schedule and decision/driver libraries. Overall I would give this service a B.
