What Is Microsoft Project? Uses, Features and Pricing

Microsoft Project is project management software that is used to create schedules, project plans, manage resources and keep track of time. It has features such as Gantt charts, kanban boards and project calendars for project management professionals. It is also known by other names such as MS Project or Project Professional, and can be accessed by acquiring a Microsoft Project Plan subscription. Microsoft Project offers multiple views for project managers and teams, such as Grid View, Board View and Timeline View. There are plenty of features that project managers and their teams need to better manage their work, and MSP has a number of them available to customers who are willing to pay the price.

Microsoft Project is a subscription-based product portfolio that provides project planning, communication & collaboration, coauthoring, reporting, roadmap, timesheets, resource management, and project portfolio management. It is available in three monthly license plans: Project Plan 1, project plan 3 and Project Plan 5. To get the on-premises version of Microsoft Project, you'll need to pay $679.99 for Project Standard 2021. For $10 per user per month, you only get to use Project Home, and Project for the web. Project Plan 3 is a package that's sufficient to manage projects, but has no project portfolio management features. Project Plan 5 is everything Microsoft Project has to offer: project for the web, Project Online and Desktop client.
