A solid project management solution with a good range of pricing tiers, but a very basic free option
Zoho Projects is easy to navigate, with a free tier for small teams. However, to get the features you need for anything with even a modicum of complexity, you'll need to pay. Task dependencies, for example, require at least a $20 per month commitment, while Gantt charts are available the next tier up. The good news is that Zoho Projects is more affordable than many competitors, offering flat fees with options to add additional users in the upper tiers on a per-seat cost.
One really nice feature of Zoho Projects is that Milestones are created through a dedicated section of the interface, as opposed to creating them within a Gantt chart with a zero day duration. ‘Pages’ is another interesting feature, where teams can create shared notebooks or HTML pages.

What is Zoho Projects?
Zoho Projects is simple enough to use for anyone who needs cleanly designed project management software, yet it's also complex enough to suit the needs of large businesses. It offers many of the fundamental features users need for project management, along with built-in time tracking, a healthy number of reporting options, and – for offices that are interested – a tool for gamifying everything.
As you might expect, Zoho Projects also integrates with other Zoho offerings including Docs, Zoho CRM, and Zoho Analytics. For teams that are already using Zoho products, Projects makes a lot of sense. There are a few things that aren't great, of course: Zoho has hard limits on the number of projects you can create in the lower and free pricing tiers, and key features – such as Gantt charts and greater third-party integrations – are restricted to upper pricing tiers. Nevertheless, there's a lot to like about Zoho Projects, especially for smaller teams just looking to better organize their task lists.
