Traditional and improved desktop versions
The improved version would have better vocabulary, default options, ribbons, tables, behavior, etc.
Clearly Microsoft Project was produced by Developers, not by Project Managers. Ribbons and tables are not arranged the way they are used.
Microsoft Project is losing market to simple tools which lack important features because Microsoft Project remains poorly architected for project managers and schedulers. Most mistakes in architecting Microsoft Project from the first release remain in all subsequent releases.
Most project managers are unprepared for scheduling, self-educated, and unaware of what Microsoft project could do for them once appropriately configured and used.
Rearrange Microsoft Project for greater success by newbies. Many poor practices in scheduling result from the deficient way Microsoft Project presents out of the box.
Thanks for this feedback – we’re always looking at ways of making our product easier to understand and use for new users, as well as continue to support our current users.
How would you expect the behavior to be, and the ribbons and commands to be presented? We know that everyone has a different expectation, so the more feedback here from different users, the more helpful it is to us!
