LiquidPlanner continues to be an impressive product for modern project management. Highlights of the product are range based estimation, intuitive user interface, and collaboration features. Using this tool we broke down barriers between teams, improved predictability in project timelines, and enabled high-level long range planning activities simultaneously. However, traditional PMOs may struggle with the tool.
they continue to innovate!
Provide better support for the hybrid working models of individuals. Most individuals are working on multiple activities at the same time. Support for this type of working model is inadequate.

We are mostly satisfied. The major hindrance is that it is very task/calendar oriented. Because nearly everyone in our group wears multiple hats, we are typically unable to work on a particular task or project to completion unless it is very narrowly focused. The only real organization of a project list is by priority and there's not a good way to assign equal priority to projects.
Be aware of the prioritization scheme. If it works for you, this is a good product. If not, you might want to look elsewhere if the prioritized list is something you need.
The ability to use it as a central repository for information about projects.
The rigid prioritization scheme.
More tools in the dashboard creation.
It allows links to Google Apps which we use extensively. SSO has just come out. We would have liked that in the beginning.

I am a fan of LiquidPlanner. It take some commitment up front but isn't too demanding. Online training is more than adequate. Follow up questions with support are quickly answered. Our company derives great value from using this product.
Spend time with the demos and online training.
Incomplete tasks are automatically updated to the next available resource work day. This speeds up the process of updating a portfolio that has many small projects.
It can be difficult to produce paper status reports for executives that refuse to work with the product online.
Format the screens so that it is easier to "print what you see" from the page being viewed.
Always prompt to answer questions.
