Good alternative, but a bit pricey
As an experienced user, I've never had any major issue. The bottom line is that it works, and it does its job. I just wish they will upgrade the experience, in regards to interface design.
For many years, it was the de facto software for project management and if you were in the field, you had to use it. So many older users like me, use it mostly because of this reason.
Besides that, it's well designed and a solid alternative. For experienced users, is one of the best tools in the market. And in this case, it's quite easy to start a new project.
It looks like Microsoft Project got stuck in time. Newer alternatives are easier to use, and the design is prettier. Microsoft Project like other Office apps, are just to boxed into the Office style apps. In other words, it lacks innovations and doesn't help the users' creativity.
Reasons for Switching to Microsoft ProjectMany years ago, it was the de facto project management tool, so I didn't have many options. And I got hooked and have been a user since then.

Saves time in planning and collaborating project
This software has help me and my colleague to create shortcuts to planning, creating and deploying project.
The task can be marked with time frame and the system will send notification if the task is still not completed before the due date.
I really like template that are provided by Microsoft Project, it is highly customized to my project objective and my liking. The feature that i use the most can be pinned on the dashboard interface and keep it organized. Most of the user are using it, and there are no issue to shares the project file to my other colleague and they can open it without any compatibility problem.
Microsoft Project is quite pricey as we can't subscribe only the Microsoft Project itself, we have to buy all the software on the Microsoft suite to use it. If only they can let user to separately subscribing it, more user can will use it. Other thing that i dislike is, no video tutorial provided to teach user how to use the feature in the software.

Microsoft Project Review
My experience with Microsoft Project was very positive. It is a powerful project management software that offers a comprehensive suite of tools to help teams effectively plan, execute, and track projects. I found the Gantt chart feature to be particularly helpful for visualizing project timelines and identifying potential bottlenecks. The software is user-friendly and easy to navigate, which made it simple for me to manage my tasks and resources. Additionally, I appreciated its integration with other Microsoft products such as Excel and SharePoint, which allowed for seamless information sharing and collaboration with my team. Overall, I found Microsoft Project to be an essential tool for streamlining the project management process and increasing efficiency.
Microsoft Project Software is one of the most liked features of Microsoft Project is its ability to effectively plan and schedule projects, allowing teams to identify and mitigate potential risks, set clear milestones, and measure progress towards meeting project objectives. Additionally, users also appreciate its integration with other Microsoft products, such as Excel and SharePoint, allowing for smooth information sharing and collaboration among team members.
However, some users have reported that the software can have a steep learning curve and be difficult to navigate for those who are not familiar with project management software. Additionally, the software requires a strong understanding of project management methodologies and techniques, which may not be suitable for users without prior experience in this field.

Not good enough
Is a simple and easy to use tool but not more.
For this amount of money you should use the Microsoft Planner. Same funtions and more but not so expensive

Project Planning Made Easy
It is a beautiful Planning and Scheduling Tool that helps all size of organizations in carrying out/managing their day 2 day and long term projects.
If one knows the Planning and Scheduling Concepts, it is extremely easy to use this software to carry out planning/scheduling.
It has its own proprietary format. Though can be saved as PDF and shared but it would be better if it can be opened directly in different formats.
