For 20 years I’ve researched many and used some PMs, and Zoho Project is the best, and keeps improving with costs staying the same. Google that. We could give pointers on use if needed, but I think you’ll find the help files and videos are all you need.

What I need does not seem to be searchable on Google and it is taking way too long to look through project management app websites one by one to figure out if they have what I want, as none so far do. I'm hoping somebody out there is very knowledgeable about what apps are available and what their features are, so I can hire you for a consulting session and you can lead me to the best program for me. Please contact me if you can help, or if you know someone else who might be able to, please feel free to forward this message and/or send me their contact info.

A program that will allow me to enter my project time estimates and deadlines, preferably with a margin of error, and my desired hours in a given time frame (biweekly and monthly), and give me a picture of how full my schedule is so that I can determine whether I have availability for new projects. This is without precisely scheduling how much time per day I expect to spend, as my work cannot be that precisely scheduled in advance. I typically think in terms of 2-week chunks. I need the program to update in real time as I clock time on each project, so whenever a new inquiry comes in, I can see a snapshot of my availability.
> 3. I need a timer to track my time on tasks and projects and then develop invoices. I bill hourly with different rates for different clients and sometimes for different tasks, and I need to invoice clients by project, not by task. (I am currently using Paydirt, which will only add time by task, so I actually have to edit every invoice manually with a calculator.) I also need all of the usual reports that come with time tracking and invoicing programs.
