Caveman ready interface. It's like an apple product; crack it open and go.

Administrator in Hospital & Health Care

I like the integration between the project scheduling options and the timesheet options. I also like the different options for reporting.

Slow to load. Frozen development because they start from scratch for each new version. Lack of native integrations because developers have to develop new integration for each new version. I wish it had some kind of webform data entry onboarding feature...

User in Government Relations

MS Project Server has room to grow in the risk management/decision tools area. The present libraries are enhanced SharePoint lists and not integrated in the schedule and decision/driver libraries. Overall I would give this service a B.
