Project Central

Project management tool for teams using Microsoft Office 365

About Project Central

Project Central is a cloud-based software designed to help teams using Microsoft Office 365 plan, organize, and track projects. The centralized dashboard enables managers to assign tasks to team members and set up due dates in real-time.

Managers can track the progress of ongoing tasks through status updates and gain insight into employee performance. The task management module allows professionals to add relevant information, links, corresponding documents, assignees, and additional comments about various jobs. Project Central also lets employees record changes in project statuses, completion reports, tags, and other attributes, improving organizational transparency.

Team members can use the application to update the projects to statuses such as not started, in progress, or completed as well as sort tasks by selecting task names, start or end date, and assignee. Other features of Project Central include collaboration, email notifications, file management, Gantt charts, reporting, project templates, data filtering, access control, and more.

A great centralized tool for our whole company to keep up to date with the most important projects. Look forward to continuing our use of the tool

Pros

I really like that both our marketing and product teams can now collaborate in a simple, and easy to use tool. I had zero push back when we implemented this tool, vs other tools where some team members found adoption difficult. This is really down to huge focus on user experience

Cons

The only challenge being that you need to have a microsoft account. It wasn't a problem for us, but some of the people I have recommended the tool for, couldn't use because they were not connected to Microsoft 365.

We have tended to look at 1 project at a time which causes us to lose the overall picture. We have many projects going on at any given time. So an at-a-glance look is a big help for us. We have tried other tools but they are way too hard to use and implement.

Pros

The Ease of Setup and Implementation! We were literally using the software in minutes. Also, it was a perfect fit with our Office365 and SharePoint setup. The Support Team is super responsive! There is even a Road-map for upgrades and enhancements. How rare is that!!

Cons

I have no real dislikes as this is a Software that is growing in a smart way.

Simple Project Management Tool that provides all the key features.

Reviewed on 2021/03/18

Pros

The sign up process was really easy , onboarding was smooth and we were up and running on Project Central is less than a week.

Cons

We would love to have dependencies but we know its on the roadmap for the Project Central team. They have been really open to our feedback also.

Missing Key features

Reviewed on 2020/08/19

Pros

It was easy to set up and quick to get going. The follow up call from the support team was a nice touch.

Cons

The product was missing the key features of sub tasks and dependancies. Without these it was not viable for the use that we needed. During the checkup call after the trial ran out, I was informed that both features are on the development roadmap for Q3 or Q4 2020.

Great tool to organizing your projects with Office 365

Reviewed on 2020/07/22

Pros

This is a very useful tool for marketing and product teams working in agile methodology – can be used by team members but also people outside the organization. It shows in a very organized and simple way progress made by your team. You can assign tasks to specified users and set up dates so everything is clear for everyone. Thanks to the intuitive and nice-looking design, it makes all information you need easy to find and follow.

Cons

Nothing to dislike. Just one small flaw - you need to use Office and not everyone does it.
