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.

Right when I get used to the UI, major changes are made, and they’re often not intuitive. Recently, the comment section was changed and you couldn’t see the most recent comments without expanding all.

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