Microsoft Project Online: Pros, Cons and Free Alternatives

Microsoft Project Online is a cloud-based project portfolio management (PPM) software built on the Microsoft Sharepoint platform. It requires a Microsoft Project Plan 3 or Project Plan 5 subscription, and is not the same as other Microsoft products such as Microsoft Project Professional, Project Server, Project for the web, or the Project online desktop client. It has a variety of project management features, such as Gantt charts, critical path, resource management, capacity planning, time tracking, project timelines, timesheets, schedule baselines, and more.
Microsoft Project Online is a set of project management tools that can be used to manage task scheduling, task updates, kanban boards, and collaboration tools. To use the full version of Microsoft Project Online, you'll need to pay $55 per user per month. There are three subscription plans to use Microsoft Project Online: Project Plan 1, Project Plan 3, and Project Plan 5. The online project management tool is powerful and is a great option for teams already set up within a Microsoft project ecosystem, such as Microsoft Teams, MS Project Server, Microsoft Planner and Sharepoint. However, it has major drawbacks for everybody else.
