SharePoint Project Management Challenges
Unreal time-limits
In the vast majority of projects the major problem is the compliance with deadlines. It becomes a challenge for managers to find effective approaches to tasks and schedules to finish project "on time" or get approval for shipping dates.
Scope changes
"Scope Creep" is the primary enemy of effective project management. Proper documentation and communication of what is happening and what is anticipated is very important in each project.
Lack of communication
Team workflows require uninterrupted communications. Project managers need effective communication infrastructures to provide information to each project resource.
Inability to manage risks
Risk analysis should be run during the whole life cycle of the project. Project manager should have current information to make decisions that reduce risks and potential losses.
Customer and end-users participation
Discussions and status updates should be provided to all members of a project. Stakeholders, customers, and end-users should be invited and encouraged to participate in important project decisions.
Developing and organizing a successful project has always been a challenge

Our customers ABOUT SHAREPOINT PRoject management
We are a small manufacturing business that utilizes Microsoft Sharepoint for project management. We use sharepoint lists to record and track each job. Multiple teams collect and track unique information about the job, which drives high number of columns in the list. When we tried to edit an item, the list of item in the Sharepoint list was long and hard to edit. Virto Forms allowed us to organize the input fields into logical tabs and groups. Now edit view looks much user friendly.
Virto forms tutorial was very easy to follow as we downloaded the app and installed it on the SharePoint site. The use of the app was also intuitive. It took me less than few minutes to reaarange my edit and view form.

Ahmed Salah, Corporate IT, SIGVARIS Management AG

Implementing Virto Calendar for SharePoint Online was a no brainer for my team. After a free trial, we quickly saw what an amazing solution it is. We have been able to extend SharePoint's out of the box calendars with this app to create beautiful, interactive calendars. We even developed a conference room booking system for one of the premier sporting facilities in the US, based on the features available with Virto Calendar. The Virto team is also very quick to add new features to the application. I have seen it evolve over the past 2 years into an app we just can't live without. It seems they listen to their customers and implement the features that are needed most and lacking in the default SharePoint calendaring experience. I could not recommend a better app for SharePoint online calendaring.

We were looking for Sharepoint solution and we came across VirtoSoftware. While testing it, they provided great support and eventually we went ahead with the purchase. There are many SharePoint vendors out there but one of the things we look out for is before & after-sales support, VirtoSoftware provided a great product and delivered good service. They would come to mind if we need any sharepoint solutions again.
