Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Microsoft Project.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
I would like to have more access to templates and tools that could be used to teach project management best practices.
I would like to see the inclusion of multi-currency support.
This solution needs more templates focused on types of projects to ease setup.
I find that MS Project has limited control in comparison to other solutions in the same sphere.
I think they've begun to improve with the new cloud integration. Previously, this was an issue. Now, I don't think there are any further changes that need to be done for the cloud issue. There needs to be better integration between SharePoint and other Microsoft platforms and this solution. Furthermore, there should be a better integration with the use of the cloud and mobile devices.
Project Professional is a powerful tool with many features and functions available for an experienced scheduler with advanced scheduling knowledge and skills. One primary problem that we have is that users that are new to project management and scheduling find it a little overwhelming when they are first introduced to the tool, particularly when they are introduced to features required to enable enterprise level planning and reporting. To address this, we are creating a trial of custom views that mask some of the complexity involved to enable project cost estimates, effort records and resource assignments to be consumed at an enterprise level. Some people find having to fulfill enterprise level task and resource assignment rules a little overwhelming and frustrating when all they want to do is a simple project plan.
* The productivity of resources * The tool allows the allocation of resources to the activities, however, if I want to measure the productivity of someone in particular, it is not so simple.
