Best Tool For Project Management!

5.0 3 months ago

Pros:

I like the user setup interface where only users can see his/her tasks in their user account along with their milestones.

Cons:

The Dashboard needs to be improved to customize how the admin wants to make it. Also the color code status columns should be more than one. Rest everything looks good.

"Efficient Project Management Made Flexible: Zoho Projects Review"

3.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: My experience with Zoho Projects has been positive overall. It offers a comprehensive suite of project management tools that are intuitive once familiarized. The customization options and integration capabilities enhance workflow efficiency, though the initial learning curve may require some dedication to fully leverage its features effectively.

Pros:

Zoho Projects excels with its comprehensive features like task management, Gantt charts, and robust customization options. It integrates smoothly with other tools and offers a user-friendly interface. Affordable pricing and responsive customer support make it an ideal choice for teams seeking effective project management solutions.

Cons:

What I liked least about Zoho Projects was its initial learning curve, which could be steep for new users unfamiliar with project management software. While the interface is intuitive once learned, the initial setup and customization options might require some time and effort to fully grasp and utilize effectively.
