1. The intention of the tool is very helpful and it is probably amazing for smaller groups with limited projects.
2. Color coding of projects/teams/clients is helpful.
1. The interface is not obvious; features are hard to find.
2. You have to navigate between different tabs to enter information for a single project. You should be able to add projects & people from a single view. And deleting something from one tab does not carry over to another (e.g., deleting someone from a project in the Schedule does not delete them from the project team).
3. You cannot see the roll up of how over allocated someone is without trying to figure out the reports for a single person. This is incredibly frustrating for our large team with a lot of projects going on at once. The red area is not a good indication when you can hardly see it behind the projects. The row views are also quite small, which hinders this being noticeable. Then you have to do the math to see the number of hours over. Other tools we have used will give percentages for allocations and overages.
4. A single project does not take a horizontal view to scan across weeks/months, as you add new projects each week the view changes and makes it very difficult to scan.
5. You cannot specify what time off is for - would be helpful to be able to track out of the office time based on conference or vacation or maternity leave or another reason.
Trying to manage a team of designers across multiple offices, clients and project work, but I cannot say we are completely solving that problem with Float without frustration.
