Project Desktop

13 November 2007

Business project tracker.


Project Desktop is a visual tool to help plan and track business or home projects.

It helps you organize the tasks in a complex project, assign budgets, estimate completion times and costs, create dependencies between tasks, and automatically schedule the tasks in a logical way. As the tasks progress, you can update status information for tasks. Gantt charts and customizable reports allow you to get a precise view of the progress of a large project.

Slow Java crap. Watch out.
Version 1.27

One of the comments below states that this program is the only Mac program that imports MS Project files. That's not accurate. The application PMX also imports both mpp and mpx files. I bought this program last year and tried to use it. Unfortunately, it has some severe limitations. If you're working on more than one project they all have to be in the same file. The terminology used is non-standard, so you can't use it in a group environment or use it to communicate with anyone else. You don't buy this program, you lease it on a subscription basis. When it came time to renew, I didn't bother. There are better Mac-based project management tools out there for the same price or cheaper.

OK port to the Mac, but needs work. Tested on 10.3. Only Mac OS X prj mgmt app that imports .mpp files from MS Project, which is key for integration in a Windows environment. 'Calendar view' and 'Generate task list' kept generating errors. Can't change fonts at all. No right-button or scroll-wheel mouse functionality. Can't seem to change colors in Gantt charts correctly. Can't change any fonts or font sizes.
