Questions tagged [pm-software]

This tag is for questions regarding the USAGE of software directly related to project management. Questions about technical support or product selection are off-topic. You should already know what tool you plan to use and what process the tool will automate before writing your question. Use specific software tags (e.g. "ms-project", "jira") rather than this generic tag whenever possible.
