Have used many, many different Project Management Software, and this so far has been the best!
Vorteile: My oversea's project team has been using this software to keep tickets working, communicate back and forth, and set deadlines. I love the way you can just respond back thru the same email that notified me of the communication and not have to log into the actual software and find the ticket to respond. I wish more support companies used this program. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email that my ticket has been responded to, but I can't see the comment or respond without first logging into the software. OrangeScrum works so well, I almost never see the ticket dashboard. Now that is perfect!
Nachteile: As and end user, I have found nothing I don't like about the software. I only wish more support programs used it. I am a big RackSpace fan, but I hate their ticket support system...OrangeScrum would fix that if only they would give it a try.

A Unique Experience When Compared To Other "More Traditional"
Vorteile: Our agency has been through just about every other project management platform there is. Seriously, mention one, and we have used or at the very least demoed it. The ones that we liked were crazy expensive, and the ones that were more reasonably price were only a little better than excel. OrangeScrum has a delightful blend of affordability and features. I love the dashboards and views that are available. The Kanban view makes it easy for our teams to coordinate. I can take the resource manager and better coordinate the timelines/deadlines for our clients. One unique feature that I have come to love is the "Daily Catchup" which allows me to get an automated summary of everything that was accomplished by my staff during the day. We are not a large company, but sometimes managing team and daily tasks can get a little unwieldy.
Nachteile: The biggest issue that I am having with the platform is the billable time. OrangeScrum allows you to set certain tasks to "billable". It's great but in order to create an invoice, you need to access each "project" individually instead of a global view of all billable items. If we could get that straightened out, I think it would be a huge improvement!

Interesting to explore new functionalities of OrangeScrum
No reminders required
Meeting hassle free deadlines
Review one's own performance
Increase productivity level
Choice of selecting tasks without even missing one
Keep track on team accomplishment
Maintain and manage - Task to do list
Reports are the new feature that has been added. We have Cloud version installed and really these feature is very useful to get accurate and average reports of tasks and no:of days spent for a particular task of a project in a fraction of seconds. Functionalities of the sub-features under 'Reports' are extremely fast and useful for a software company like our's.
Resource Utilization page and weekly status are used frequently to capture daily tasks report..
Nachteile: I would suggest if Task# or its title is present in "Resolution Time Report" would be fine. because it already has average days and total no:of days to resolve the tasks with no:of tasks, if just an identification is linked to this feature it would be more transparent to extract reports immediately....

No system has ever made Project Management simpler and enjoyable like OrangeScrum, its just amazing
Kommentare: Time tracking feature has enabled us balance our resources thus enabling project delivery within the stipulated timelines.
Vorteile: Provides a step by step tracking of the entire project making it possible to plan well in advance your resources to avoid any delays.
Nachteile: The fact that OrangeScrum is usually unstable and keeps crushing makes it very difficult to work with.

If you're searching for a modern and open source project management tool OrangeScrum may be the best
OrangeScrum simplifies your project management life: it makes easy to handle all aspects of your projects. You can easily manage tasks, create a direct communication between team members, assign resources and tasks to a particular person and keep track of your expenses. It combines project management, task management and collaboration in a unique Open Source platform giving you total control over your projects.
- Open source.
- Resource planning and team member reminders via daily updates
- Easy to use
- Easy to custom
- Available in 3 options: Community, Cloud and Enterprise
Many things are paid, as a open source software I have expected some of the good features can be free like invoice & Client Management.
- Portfolio management not available
- Have to pay onetime off for extra features
- Facing database connection error so many time
- Sending email to the admin not creating task or ticket (only adding email reply into the same task)

We're using OrangeScrum to manage projects and task lists
Kommentare: Project Management and Task Management Software that is easy to manage at an affordable rate.
Vorteile: What I like about OrangeScrum is that it has a great user interface that allow you to easily manage projects, monitor tasks and that the open source/community edition has plenty of features. Another great pro is that it's self hosted and you're not storing your complete data set in the cloud.
Nachteile: So far I've not been really able to determine any noticeable cons on this software other than that the software was running unstable after installation. We had to apply some manual code fixes to fix this problem, but it was minor.

Simple project management and tracking tool
Kommentare: great for managing simple project assignments and tasks
Vorteile: We used orangescrum to manage our project tasks and collaboration. It was fairly simple to install and use, once you understand the basics of project management
Nachteile: We found the email alerts to be too many and redundant. Customization was also not simple, which eventually led to the application being under utilized by the team, who preferred to use the help desk application

Makes it very easy to manage and keep track of projects.
Kommentare: Orange SCRUM is the best solution for project collaboration within a team.
Vorteile: Orange scrum includes an all in one screen covering all modules from project planning to visual project presentation. It is also very simply to understand and use.
Nachteile: It is harware specific in that it only coveres mac, android, iphone and windows. There is no local coverage for linux users apart from the web-based application which not every user will prefer.

An alright project management solution
Kommentare: Team Project Management
Vorteile: I like that orangescrum has a lot of customization and has good manageability. Our instance is installed on a dedicated sever on our environment which gives us a lot of control over access
Nachteile: I dislike that it feels like the product feels out of date compared to other solutions. Also, you have to set this product whereas a lot of other similar products work right away without any setup time

It is a great easy to use tool to take control of my development projects.
Vorteile: OrangeScrum has all necessary features for project control, is user friendly, easy to use and free source. So you can use it as self-hosed free version with the basic features or as a cloud solution. In both ways you can upgrade the system with a lot of extra premium features for your daily work. The customer support team is great and experienced.
Nachteile: A lot of features are still available as pro elements / add-ons. They are not really expensive, but if you need some of them - you costs can grow up rapidly. The add-on combos/bundles are not free to choice what whould be nice for the customer. If you are using the Cloud solution the user arelimited to 10 in the smallest package and can also grow up fast. So the price model was not so clear for me

Really good opens source software. It helps organizing projects.
Vorteile: Easy to use, yet full of functionality. Different ways to view projects and tasks. Mail notifications. Project reports.
Most of the functionality uses ajax. Therefore sometimes you have to refresh the page to get the updated data.
It doesn't have good support for other languages (for example task titles or descriptions are converted)
Time spent on project can only be saved as fraction of base 10.

Orange scrum is a superb system that has enabled our team to work in collaboration on projects.
It enables project progress tracking on each of the project modules.
It assists in time management to ensure projects are completed in timely fashion.
It simplifies human resource tasks such as time sheets, attendance and leaves.
Nachteile: The software has a lot of unresolved bugs, Which makes it very difficult to setup correctly and this is also reflected during system usage where the system may crush and causes loss of useful data.

Take control of your project and tasks efficiently.
I was very impressed with the ease of use of its interface and all its features to manage projects.
It is a platform that can be customized to our needs.
It maintains a technical support that offers assistance to any requirement.
A very important fact for those who manage their projects using other platforms, is that it offers a specialized service in migrating data from their projects to OrangeScrum.
Nachteile: The software seemed quite stable, flexible in its use, but they have many more benefits that are only applicable to your project as long as you acquire the payment license, of which there is a wide variety at affordable prices and according to the importance and complexity of this tool.
