When you have 100+ people working in a project you are leading you need a better tool than Excel or Trello to keep track of the whole thing in a holistic way, this allows that fine detail tracking without losing the big picture also is the same tool that our project coordinators use so my company already had the license for this and I found someone to teach me how to use this in a few hours.

This tool has as weakness the incompatibility with the other programs that do not have the microsoft platform, besides there are the certain features in the tool that limit the editing of the documents. Another negative point is that even though Microsoft’s network almost never suffers outages these days, when it goes down, it is catastrophic for anyone using documents, sheets, outlook etc. basically any office using MS Office suite for productivity will come to a standstill. It has very limited applications. This service is free of charge however even if microsoft provided a large library of template documents at a monthly charge or a small free for each life, this would be amazing.
