Haven't used this in anger yet, but it ain't bad! Another user commented on the dates - I agree they are a little confusing but changing them in the main Gantt view ( press F2 in the field ) changes them. What I liked: seems pretty stable WBS-like entry ( indented tasks are added up to the covering 'hammock' ) resource over-allocation indication allowing one person to have different roles ( often the case in our company! ) but the resource for the task is assigned to a person What I didn't like, or I thought was missing: any automatic scheduling - ideally should allow resource levelling i.e. where one person is assigned to 2 tasks in the same period, move one of them later, typically the one which is below in the task list; should also be able to update based on today's date i.e. if task X has not been started by today, then it cannot remain to be started last week PERT diagram is not very useful, for the moment could be improved greatly simply by saving the locations of the boxes so at least you could arrange them manually, but really needs to provide a 'box editor' e.g. under Edit -> Settings... cannot change task while the task information dialog is open - this means you need to do many more clicks to open and close the dialogs e.g. when adding resources to a set of tasks PS rated support 'OK' as I haven't tried it yet
The video is quite blurry. The text is impossible to see.
