"Prodigious Absurdity."

January 06, 2007  |  By bpt.tv

 |  Version: FastTrack Schedule 9.1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Over the years I've experienced more than my fair share of unfriendly applications. I can safely say that Fasttrack Schedule 9 takes the garbage cake, hands down. I have never had to do so much in order to accomplish so little. There is absolutely ZERO flow when it comes to using Fasttrack. Formatting is awful; there's no access to the elegant OS X Show Fonts menu; adding a Text Shadow looks the same as Fasttrack's grotesque font outline attribute; managing outline styles, column styles and other styling options is incredibly clumsy and bass-ackwards. It takes far too long to figure out how to do things that should be so evident, simple, logical, intuitive. To top it off, searching the manual for names, topics, titles and phrases specific to Fasttrack, more often than not will turn up zero results! In other words these boobs not only botched the usability, they didn't even document HOW to accomplish some of Fasttrack's idiosyncratic nonsense!

And as mentioned in a previous post, Fasttrack licensing is out of it's mind nuts! Talk about holding on waaaaay too tightly. Forget trying to test drive this in any real manner. And even if you do invest in Fasttrack (so help you god), you won't be able to use it at home on your desktop and then on the road with your laptop because of the old world license restrictions.

In a nutshell, if you love that Windows 95 look and feel, then Fasttrack (plus a handful of AEC's own moronic twists) is the package for you! Otherwise, save yourself the hassle of having to return this grade A crap and go look at Merlin or if you're patient enough to wait for it to grow up, OmniPlan. I'm sure there's some other options as well; anything's better than Fasttrack, including the oldschool pen and paper!

"Not Pro Grade yet"

October 23, 2006  |  By sixsigma9999

 |  Version: FastTrack Schedule 9.1.0

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Though this program has a wonderful interface and is MUCH better than MS Project in tools and behavior; it STILL does not support effort hours tracking and does not provide std metrics such as earned value analysis. It is therefore not ready for pro work. Bad mark against AEC, their WEB site and FAQ avoid answering these questions, so I had to waste $345 to find out this program cannot yet replace MS Project. If you are a pro, stay w/ MS Project. If you do only simple duration tracking, by all means buy it. If you are AEC, please be honest on your web site so that we KNOW up front and PLEASE add effort tracking and metrics so the pro's can use this. You ARE heading in the right direction! I would give 5 stars with these features (and an improvement in stability - it did crash twice within first 24 hours so that avg hrs before failure is only 12 hrs!)

"This version is a great Mac OS X product."

September 18, 2004

 |  Version: FastTrack Schedule 8.0.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I just installed the newest version and version 8.0.8 is much faster on Mac OS X.

They made nice improvements. Glad to see them supporting Mac. Files are binary compatible with the Windows version and there is a Palm version too. This version is a great Mac OS X product. The interface looks great and a huge improvement from previous versions. Menus are just like Office. Very WUSIWUG. Very stable and the printouts are beautiful. You can put graphics and text everywhere.

"Needs PERT or CPM Capability"

August 27, 2004  |  By atsysusa

 |  Version: FastTrack Schedule 8.0.8

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
I agree that the lack of a PERT Chart generator is a major deficiency but overall I find the application easy to use and very flexible. Excellent for producing good looking Gantt Charts very quickly for use in presentations.

the interface needs work in some areas to make it more Mac-like which would improve the Windows version as well.

"Needs lots of work..."

December 16, 2003  |  By asrai

 |  Version: FastTrack Schedule 8.0.6

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
Could be more intuitive, but the lack of Network/PERT diagrams (duh, what kind of project software doesn't have this?!?!), and the ability to level resources makes this app severely lacking...

I'm hoping for a MAJOR overhaul in the next version, with features that are, for the most part, required of a Project management package...

Not incredibly intuitive, but one the tutorials are done you get a clear grasp of it. Very customizable and cross platform. Thank you AEC!

"Best Mac option but..."

May 26, 2003  |  By pairof9s--2008

 |  Version: FastTrack Schedule 8.0.4

Summary

This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
...it is flawed on several levels. First, it is a OS 9 port to X, at best. It follows few of the UI requirements of OS X. Secondly, is the poor exchange support w/ Project; if you're trying to send FastTrack to Project, forget it...it's truly worthless and quite complex. The Mac to Windows method does not even exist. Finally, there are numerous bugs w/ cell formatting and font usage, linking, resource depedancies. You have to work to get this program to perform well, but in the end it's the only so therefore best Mac solution for project mgt.
