What I dislike about Ace project is not having the ability to go in depth as I would like to. And an important aspect which I find pretty weird is that it doesn't have a calendar. I am one of those who use a calendar for everything so this was a semi-issue...

The change management and roll out was too long. Basic reporting took too long to roll out and it was not accompanied with any training and ultimately was not useful.
