The Clarizen tool is likely the most configurable SaaS tool available in the PPM world - especially when it comes to the user interface. Meeting a company's need for custom fields & workflows to support unique processes is a major selling point of the...

Clarizen makes it very difficult to enter projects. It is extremely cumbersome to set up and activate a project, especially when projects are very detailed and lengthily like ours.

User

Once the task is set, the task-editing process can be quite the hassle, especially when assigning subscribers and subtasks to certain people. Many save-then-reopen-and-reedit steps are required.

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