"Manage your activities with Ganttproject."

What do you like best?

Gproject to be free and have a local use you can have at hand every project you manage without having to be connected to the internet, has a minimalist interface to project quickly if you need to organize your activities.

What do you dislike?

You should have a deployment in the cloud that can work offline, of course this implies that you must have a paid version and this is no problem. The greater dedication will have greater impact and could be and application with high performance, Gproject can give you a solution brief and that complements you on a par with other applications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although it is not easy to use at glance with a few days of dedications you inmmediately familiarize yourself with the tool. Being a free tool you can take advantage of your resources and get into project management with gantt diagrams.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Currently I have a control with the beginning of courses and beginnings of school activities in the institute and any important evaluation, we have benefited from having a tool like Gproject to have a more private control beyond the reach of other users to have a more compact management.

"A simple tool to program projects"

What do you like best?

1. Free tool easy to download and install from the internet.

2. The cost associated with the product is low, anyone can pay it, if you wish. In fact, there is a customer survey on the cost product.

3. Day to day, when starting the product, It offers tips of use, that can be configured.

4. It generates the file to different free and proprietary formats such as pdf, png.

5. You can upload resources from another project.

6. It allows you to work with projects that are in the cloud. While you have the permits.

7. It is open source. You have access to the source code and can distribute it and change it.

8. You can select several tasks at the same time.

9. It connects directly with the mail of the desired resources. If they are configured. I can add different responsibilities to the project resources, which gives it versatility according to the project that is being programmed.

10. It is a comparable tool with MSProject, but lighter, with fewer features.

11. I can quickly visualize the critical path on the graph.

What do you dislike?

1. Its interface is not web, and although it is a light tool, if I want to run it remotely I must have it installed on the client machine.

2. When I add precedence in the activity, it is not immediately reflected in the Pert Diagram. The Pert diagram is not always updated at the same time the Gantt is updated.

3. I can not see the ids of the activities when the tasks are configured. It would be good to identify them by a number and not by their name.

4. For very large Gantts, it is impractical to move the screen from one side to the other, and the integral vision of the project is lost. It should be possible to fix the columns related to the times.

5. I have not found a way to reorder the id of the activities. These are counted as they are created and not according to the order in which they are listed.

6. Sometimes when I import or export files, the system crashes or becomes too slow.

7. The formats that MSProject generates are too old and are not recognized by the new versions of this system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend the use of GanttProject for the teaching of the basics of project programming in the degree in computer science. As well as for the planning and control of small projects of any company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm a university professor in the computer science area. I dictate subjects related to Project Management. And I have had extensive experience with many software of this type. I have used this application to review its practical use to teach the planning and programming of computer projects in the subjects I teach at the university level. I have found in it a useful and simple tool, which addresses the basic knowledge for the planning and control of activities and resources. Its simplicity allows it to be easy to learn. I recommend it in the educational environment, and also for the planning of projects in small and medium-sized companies, since with its characteristics it works very well.

What Project Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Control your workflow with GanttProject"

What do you like best?

Using GProject gives you that freshness when you want to take control of your projects under a standard of follow-up for the fulfillment of your processes, their schedules are perfectly adaptable and, beign local, it is quite quick to carry out your workloads and have the hand the progress of your activities.

What do you dislike?

Inlike other Gproject tools in my experience, I feel like innovating to have a support in the cloud to have some progress in your web as a backup source. Although many may think that the interface is obsolete, it can be expected that more dedication will be invested to improve this tool, which is very useful.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When you want to improvise or start working with some Gantt diagrams this tool can be very helpful, your minimalist environment can be profitable to keep up with a lot of tools, and when you take advantage you could try with others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am currently monitoring my minor tasks regarding the deployment of a vulnerability analysis tool and I need to keep up to date with each process that is being carried out, so that the advances that exist can be appreciated.

"GanttProject - A simple manager to improve."

What do you like best?

Initially I had high expectations about this application but it turned out to be the opposite, it is true, it is a free application and it contains some simplified functions, but this also indicates that there is little dedication in its improvement.

In addition to this, we can find a very simple aspect, with some deficiencies in the functions that can be found in other applications to manage projects.

GanttProject can be an alternative to generate a project immediately and still opt for a web application that quickly organizes what you expect.

What do you dislike?

I do not like its interface, it can be tedious to generate a project because you get lost in the requirements that it demands to project your activities, it can be something grotesque your area of ​​work that does not inspire you to keep a stay in it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your plan is to use a minimalist project manager with something simple in its functions, you can choose to give it a try, but my recommendation is that there are many applications a thousand times better than GanttProject, I lost some of my time using it that I really prefer spend this bad time thinking that I never used it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Mainly I used it because a colleague had recommended it to me and I was excited to see that there was a desktop application that could have some development when creating my diagrams, but for that I prefer to go to a Microsoft product, such as Project. However, I managed to give it an opportunity and download it in its free option, but once installed, I really did not like it at all, I tried to create my projects and organize them for better control but I can not satisfy myself.

"Do well and free of charge, what you need more"

What do you like best?

GanttProject is not a simplified project management tool. It is a powerful tool because it offers all you need to control activities, resources and deliverables.

It has a simple interface, use a few computer resources and it's free of charge for any purpose.

It offers good resources to work with external people, sharing the project plan in the network, and importing/exporting content (as possible) to traditional commercial products.

What do you dislike?

Collaboration resources are still weak and are in need of improvement.

It is not ready for new agile initiatives reducing the scope of its use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Corporate users are always asking for a project management software license only to open a project plan, look for an appointment or a resource allocation, and print it. The Project Managers should change their mind and focus in collaboration and team performance rather than complex and high featured tools that most of the time are not fully used.

GanttProject is what most of the project teams need to control their activities and goals.

"Gantt a project manager to improve."

What do you like best?

Initially we installed it for free, but after giving a look at the functions it contained, it was very limited and this conditioned the work team not to use it in the way that was expected. GanttProject can serve you for elementary activities.

What do you dislike?

As the cheap thing is expensive, in this case the free thing did that the company lost valuable time implementing this tool, that although it was kept in test it was considered powerful, but the functions reduce so much the possibility of making the most of your projects so that it is contemplated by the entire organization, including its branches.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Personally I would not recommend it for excessive use or to implement huge projects, but you could try to know how it works for a short process, since it does not cover so much disk space and operates for something minimalist.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

At first it was decided to deploy GanttProject to manage some initial projects in the departments that could have the most relevance, however, its environment did not finish catching all the team that would handle the tool, it was becoming a tool with little use. It really serves to do some tests, but it would not take time, it would take a little more dedication to the application to make its integration more extensive and thus be able to satisfy the needs of its users.

"the administration of projects is a serious thing so effective control shows me the true control"

What do you like best?

Because it is an open source driver, it has given new possibilities for my project controllers to have an important scope, it is not the controller's brand, it is the user that allows everything to go in an orderly and appropriate way, for me this free software of projects has served me in an integral way since it works perfectly and of the control tools that maybe others do not have or at least what I need.

What do you dislike?

There is something that I do not like, rather I would like to have a security control that this software does not have, such as encrypted files in the cloud with encryption and other devices that maybe security could lead to losing a gant of a particular project

Recommendations to others considering the product

the use of this application is easy and convenient to take control of projects that, because of the license costs, it has not been possible to acquire this, it allows access to the use and to be able to initiate the control of an activity already started or to leave to start soon.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have resulted in all the license problems that I might have had before, what is gained with free software, is that I maintain continuity without much problem.

"Excellent Resource!"

What do you like best?

This program is one of the best local tools for project management, it allows you to visualize your projects in a graphic way, being more pleasant for introductions to your team or clients, opting for a simple image of a complex system, helping your presentation and understanding, showing in graphical ranges how much it takes to develop each task, group that participates and more, all this of its more known tool the Gantt diagram, is a very unique way to organize the projects and facilitate their understanding and progression.

What do you dislike?

One of the most important disadvantages is that the bars do not indicate the amount of work but only the time invested, this does not allow to see how many resources will participate in the task, the case can be presented where a shorter bar actually takes much more work and personnel involved which brings confusion or detracts from the diagram. My suggestion is: Have a tool that allows me to organize my projects in a visual way, easier to present to clients or users outside the area, with which they can better understand the times each task takes.

Recommendations to others considering the product

First all is a free tool besides other apps like this that are for pay, it brings the tools that you need for a project like create task, add milestones, work peer to peer, export your to many formats like PDF and JPEG, and so many other things. The interphase is basic, is not beautiful or friendly, is do it just for work, not for presentation or anything else, also the app does not bring the possibility to add values to the activities and that is a big lack.

Overall: A great free tool for projects.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This very complete application for project management, has one of the most familiar diagrams in the computer world, focused on seeing the duration times of each task and which task precedes another, excellent for organizing projects and always having the application without depending on a connection, is open source and free.
