This is the most impressive software I have seen

For my new job I have to get a new laptop and get brushed up with the software, seeing this was the first true cohesive, attractive, interactive software that I won't have to find 10 programs to do what this does




Where are the instructions on how to use this prog

I purchased this product about two weeks ago, I'm still trying to figure out how to use it. For the price I paid, I would have liked a CD disk and a user guide. I'm not a business, I'm a student studying program management. I have two laptops, one tablet, smart phone and a desktop computer and I can only load on one computer. My husband also have a laptop, tablet, and smart phone. Would like my whole household to be able to use this program on their computer as well. Where can I get instructions on how to use this program?

Great features! More templates.

I bought this a month before and pciking up new features. Many templates to choose from and very productive.




No competition yet...

Project has some unique capabilities that no one can really touch in a simple way yet. It's way over built, however. If Microsoft would make a version for 'home' and the every day user...I think it would be a more manageable product for the vast majority of the projects I employ. In fact, if Smartsheet would just add 'Total Slack' to their suite and remove the fact that blowing out a start date automatically severs the link of its predecessor, it would be the choice product to use. To give Project credit, however, it has been the most helpful communication tool for teams I have ever used. When built correctly without fluff (unless predefined as something like Management Reserves) it really stops all the arguing at planning meetings or in the 'war rooms' and help get the production folks on board to move with a purpose and focus.




Excellent Product

This product is a must for project management. I use it for a long time for work. Unfortunately there is no version that could be used on a Mac.




Great Management Software - Wish There Was an App

This is a simple project management software compared to Primavera! My only gripe is that there is not a Microsoft Project app for iPad like there is for Word and Excel. This would be a great feature for us folks that keep schedules up-to-date in the field with a tablet.




No disc, no problem.

Just read another reviewer that was disappointed that a hard copy was not provided with purchase. Just go to your downloads folder and save the installer to Microsoft Onedrive or burn the installer to a DVD to preserve a backup copy.

Best performance by far!

I use this program every day and have had very few problems with it.




Nicely updated. Seems easier to use now.

I downloaded this a week or so ago, and it worked fine. I usually hate downloads. They almost never work for some reason or another. This was OK. I still want a disc, though, and popping for that much money and not having a hard copy seems...risky. I'd give it 5 stars, except for the disc and not having used it that long yet. But, so far, no issues. This beats the death out of Libre or the other shareware deals - of course, for the price, it had better.
