Users are given dozens of options when producing a simple report, and the written explanations vary little, making it confusing as to what information will be pulled in a given report.

In our workforce, PPM is mandatory and required, but nobody likes using it. It's bulky, it's slow, and the UI is not intuitive. Many features are hidden behind screens that are hard to find without proper guidance or training. Recalling timesheets is a pain.

It is buggy and difficult to use at times. It does not lend its self to ease of use.
