    "Difficult to use, no documentation."

    October 26, 2012   |   By freak740

    Version: GanttProject 2.0.10

    Pros

    Useful for tracking time-to-finish on projects.

    Cons

    Controls and procedures are non-intuitive, and there is no manual or help file included with the software. Changes made to the timeline are sometimes randomly reverted for no apparent reason. There appears to be no easy way to update the starting date of a task (for example, to the actual vs planned start date), as the program wants to revert dates to match the earliest end of all predecessors. Some functions appear unfinished, such as handling of public holidays. The dialog for adding a holiday seems incomplete, and tasks are shown as continuing/occurring during the holiday dates.

    Summary

    The lack of documentation and the sometimes inconsistent behavior of the software leads to frustration. The charts are useful, but to-date I have spent more time fighting the program than it would have taken to draw out a gantt chart on graph paper. I will be pursuing an alternative program for future use.

    "serious flaw"

    April 02, 2012   |   By barryvo

    Version: GanttProject 2.0.10

    Pros

    easy to use. Free.

    Cons

    Has trouble printing. You need to export a PNG and print THAT.

    Summary

    You would think that a piece of software whose main purpose is to create a chart would be able to PRINT that chart. Not so. For me, that's a serious flaw. If you just want to look at charts on a screen, it's great.

    "Very, very basic."

    October 17, 2011   |   By billrosenblatt

    Version: GanttProject 2.0.10

    Pros

    If you are used to MS Project, then you will find this very easy to use.

    Cons

    Severely limited functionality makes it run out of gas quickly. For example, no way to collapse or expand the time scale of the view. This makes it unusable for project that last more than a few weeks. Similarly, task durations must be entered in days, not weeks or months.

    Summary

    You get what you pay for.

    "better than MS Project for gantts and free!"

    August 12, 2010   |   By arrozconleche

    Version: GanttProject 2.0.10

    Pros

    All the gantt features you could want.
    Resonably stable
    Runs on any platform.

    Cons

    Some of the features are not intuitive, e.g. you use the middle mouse to drag a task left or right.

    Summary

    Great alternative to MS Project if you are on a budget, or need cross platform (i.e. Mac) support.

    "OK Alternative to MS Project"

    March 03, 2010   |   By alkeerdoon

    Version: GanttProject 2.0.3

    Pros

    Light weight, OS agnostic, Free, Can convert projects to MS Project

    Cons

    No calendar functionality, limited Help pages, automated date dependencies can be frustrating.

    Summary

    A free and reasonably capable alternative to MS Project. Lacks some functionality I find useful, but works well enough for smaller projects or when I am limited to a Linux machine.

    "Won't work for me"

    October 01, 2009   |   By rnfriends

    Version: GanttProject 2.0.3

    Pros

    I seems to have some good capabilities for creating Gantt charts, but not what I need.

    Cons

    I couldn't find any way to change the timeline to display months instead of days or weeks. I wanted to use it for preparing a marketing calendar and need a monthly overview, so it doesn't work for me.

    Summary

    See cons.

    "Does what it says on the tin!"

    November 30, 2008   |   By Tom59

    Version: GanttProject 2.0.3

    Pros

    This is a very useful application. It is not difficult to use as there are no "fancy bits" on it. The layout is very clean and uncluttered.

    Cons

    The Help pages are very sparse, but as it is so user friendly, you should not need to resort to the help section.

    Summary

    I would definitely recommend this download.
