I do not find FP to be very intuitive. I spend too much time trying to locate information on individual tasks.

G2 User in Automotive

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.
