"The stability of the 2019 version is quite good."
"We utilize time tracking and reports most often."

"It would be nice to have more custom automation and also to simplify some steps to better manage a team and a workload for projects."
"Sometimes the limit of parts on a board (500 units) can inhibit growth."
"We need to be able to compare milestones, calls, and other variables regarding the projects we are working on. I have to contract developers to make reports, which is where things get complicated. They need to develop personal and custom fields for us."
"The cost could be lower."
"The solution could have more compact dashboards, such as one finds with Planview."
"Collaboration within the tool is lacking when you compare it to online or cloud-based tools."
"The initial setup was complex."
"We think that calculations are not working correctly, and there is a need to enter data a couple of times in order to give the correct calculations."
"The user interface looks quite old and needs to be improved."
"The deployment aspect of the product is a bit tedious."
"We feel that the actual project reports and roll-ups could be a lot different. We are seeking something more for the dashboard. We would like a high-level dashboard that can be broken down into individual product roll-ups and tasks that are assigned. If you assign someone to a task, it assigns them all of the tasks under that. We want to be able to break those down so that a person doesn't have an 800 task list, for example. We want more separation with that and a higher-level dashboard experience."
"It would be great if they could develop more reporting."

Ben D., Front End Developer at a marketing services firm, writes of the product, “Their flagship feature, what used to be called the pulse, is great. Pulse offers great management. Being able to see everything at a glance and check task status, is wonderful. They use subtasks and the simple aspects of task management have been really helpful.”
Another PeerSpot reviewer, the Head of Projects at Smart Media SA, notes, “The boards offer an amazing and clear view of my tasks, campaigns, and progress. Automations especially with Slack and Outlook help with keeping my team up-to-date always. Graphs and charts are valuable for reporting purposes and to track progress made.
