4.0 out of 5 stars Better, but needs new features June 1 2011
By John Sutherland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Software
The big improvement over 2007 is really in visual design. What I still want in this product is better integration with other Office apps. The problem with Project is still that the project manager creates a complex schedule, and the team members understandably ignore their deadlines, simply because they can't see through the tangle of Project.

I'd recommend buying this, but also the plug-in called "Tap on the Shoulder" that automatically reminds team members of their task deadlines.

It's inexpensive and makes a world of difference.

If Microsoft is paying attention, they'll wrap a feature like this into the next version of Project.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you have to use MSP, buy Standard, not Pro Oct. 29 2013
By Michael R. Murphy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Software Verified Purchase
I'll admit it - I have a love/hate relationship with MS Project. It's a powerful tool, no doubt - and something of an industry standard. And everytime I get frustrated with it, I always find myself trying to create a three-dimensional spreadsheet that would replicate what MSP does (track tasks, durations, work effort, dependencies, etc.). And my clients expect me to produce a project plan (which they hardly ever look at), so I gotta do it.

The challenge is that MSP is very complicated to use, and if you aren't aware of each setting (including the default settings for new tasks), you can do some serious damage to your project plan/ budget. For example the default setting for tasks is "fixed units". And if all you do is create a plan and leave it alone, you probably won't notice anything. But if you add or subtract resources to/ from a task after the initial creation AND have effort-driven scheduling turned on (another default) it will start changing things on you. The tricky part comes when you want to show people how they're booked on your project - using Resources Assignments - unless you're very careful, it will appear that you've overbooked your resources significantly. This is probably user error (mine), but my advice is to be very careful about how you setup, maintain and share information coming out of MSP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Tutorial Aug. 2 2012
By LaVern Glosson - Published on Amazon.com

MS Project 2010 hits it out of the park. I purchased the software so that I could more easily follow along in the MS Project 2010 Step by Step Handbook. Being away from managing Projects for so long intimidated me. My goal was to remove old cobwebs and brush up on the newest Project practices - Microsoft helped me do just that, and MORE. There are new functional tools new to the 2010 version that creates short cuts to otherwise long processes to get the same information. Absolutely love it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Good price for Microft Projects Jan. 20 2013
By Tina Floyd - Published on Amazon.com

The software arrived quickly but when I tried to install it, I was told that the product key was not valid. I sent an e-mail and they responded immediately. They even logged into my computer and fixed the problem immediately. You can't ask anymore than that from a business. I would do business again with company anytime.
5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get any easier than this March 23 2013

The last time I used Project was many years and several versions ago. My recollection of that experience was that it was a powerful tool, but a real pain to use. My experience with this version is that it has gotten much easier to use. I did consult "Project 2010 for Dummies" to quickly get up to speed on how this version works. That investment was two afternoons reading the first few chapters. Then it took me only a day to create my first project spanning two years, a dozen people, and 200 tasks! Once I got going and understood the differences between Task Types, it became very simple to translate my project outline into a Project plan. It took some experimentation with assigning resources to 'Auto Scheduled' tasks of type 'Fixed Work' to see the effect on the duration, but then I 'got' the concept and the rest was straightforward. I love the ease with which you can add and group tasks and rearrange their order.

This is a very pricey tool, but if you have a project of any significant complexity to manage, this is an excellent resource. An immediate benefit for me was being able to determine when it will be productive to add resources (hire people) for maximum impact to the end date based on known dependencies. This is great for exploring what-if scenarios to aid decision making. I'm just getting started with this, so I have hardly begun to explore all the features available, but I doubt this application will run out of steam as my usage gets more sophisticated.
