Planning events made easy

5,0 vor 4 Monaten

Vorteile:

It is free. While there are some paid features we might consider in the future, the core product does what we need it to do. As the head of the event, I need to keep an eye on all the moving parts and know who is doing what and what still needs to get done.

Nachteile:

With a name open, I'd have hoped that it would be one of those where you pay for support or implementation. However, some features are locked behind a monthly/yearly fee. If it was a one-time fee for non-profits, I'd consider it.

Great Project Software for Teams

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I thoroughly enjoy OpenProject and hope it continues to grow. Others in my organization find it frustrating for scheduling and viewing overall status, but we are finding ways to work around issues with other tools. We don't need another Jira! OP is my MS Project alternative, and adds the benefit of integrating teams into project tracking. Keep up the good work!

Vorteile:

OpenProject is a pleasure to use for projects from proposal/concept to closing. Creating a WBS and timeline with generic resources is a great way to generate documentation needed for proposals. Copying that proposal project to an active project is then a great way to jumpstart project planning with team awareness of timelines and requirements. Teams can interact with the project plan, adding their own features and tasks to complete deliverables. Creating custom WBS queries assists in focusing team members on items they are required to complete. And creating custom queries to the master Work Package list provides a way for executive members to view the active phases and status of milestones. Meetings can be logged in their own section, and wiki notes can be captured for reference. Very pleased with the community version of OpenProject.

Nachteile:

Scheduling and resource management is a bit burdensome with OpenProject. There is so much value in scheduling with blocked-out weekends, holidays, and resource calendars. Resource loading reports have to be manually created in other tools (spreadsheets) to show whether resources are available or overbooked. The planned project overview page and executive/portfolio views can't come soon enough. Value is often communicated upwards, and there isn't much for executive management to view; these views and reports are still custom creations in other tools. Printing wiki pages, meetings, etc. are awkward. Budgeting is OK, but again awkward as the plugin appears to apply to all projects when within a single project. There is no baseline feature and no way to compare performance verses the baseline. For these reasons, users are still required to use more advanced resource management, project management and budgeting, and scheduling tools alongside OpenProject. It is great software, just not a complete replacement for other project management toolsets. At times, it would be good to have more condensed views, but reducing the screen rendering/size to less than 100% suffices for now.

Thank you very much for your feedback. The good news is that we are working on a completely new resource management and scheduling module for OpenProject. If you are interested in sharing your expectations, just get in touch with us on support@openproject.com.

OpenProject - One of the best online project management software

5,0 vor 4 Wochen Neu

Vorteile:

I started using this open source project management software when we switched our team to an Agile software development process and it has really helped us manage our projects and fix problems. The wide range of features and user-friendly interface makes it one of the best online project management tools available.

Nachteile:

Open source, but not really. The free version is missing key functionalities like resource allocation or leveling.

OpenProject -useful if you use the professional edition

4,0 vor 2 Monaten

Kommentare: We are doing all the PM with it ;-).

Vorteile:

If you select the professional version, you get kanban boards, collaboration and planning features which might replace Exchange server funkctionalities as long as you do classic PM tasks. I also liked the integrated workflows. The community edition might serve you well when you have only a small team.

Nachteile:

Different labour costs per user would be fine - i guess now you can only assign one hourly rate. I also would like to see a possibility to set the hours to "billed" or "exported" somehow.

Antwort von OpenProject

Hi Gerald, thanks for your review. You can set different hourly rates per user in the -> Administration -> Users and permissions -> select a user -> Rate history. Thanks for the feedback to give the hours a status (e.g. billed). We will consider this for future feature development. Thank you!

Open project - customise it all.

4,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Open project has the flexibility for you to customise your projects to work just how you need them to work. If you take the time to set it up, it will fulfill your needs.

Vorteile:

- Customisable - Project, subprojects, sub sub projects - Tasks, subtasks, - many customisable work package types - Cost that feels right - Not loaded with extra features that you are paying for buy never use.

Nachteile:

- needs basic refinement - can be buggy - steep learning curve

Great Tool

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It has helped me a lot in project management. Task management and monitoring.
I would like a brief overview of the project portfolio.

Vorteile:

Open source software, API, web based. Constant feature and security updates. Agile tools; Gantt chart.

Nachteile:

The integration of agile module with gantt chart does not work correctly. There is currently a need for manual updates to the Agile module and Gantt. It would be great if the Gantt chart showed the progress of Versions, User Stories, and Tasks automatically. Currently I have to create a Gantt Phase and link to the Version of the same name.

Antwort von OpenProject

vor 3 Jahren

Thanks you very much for your feedback. The integration of the Agile module with the Gantt chart is a known challenge which we will evaluate and improve. For now, the new Boards module gives a first improvement so that all work packages are at first displayed in the Gantt chart.

Vorteile:

Following are its top features: - Gantt chart - Task dependency creation - Easy task assignment - Costing

Nachteile:

- Collaboration could be improved like trello in big teams it can cause problems - No kanban view - Task searching, it's detail and it's activity is better in trello.

Open Project instead of MS Project

5,0 vor 3 Monaten

Kommentare: I was using Open Project before MS Project was truly ready for prime time. I have loved it ever since. I even use it to plan and track projects at home.

Vorteile:

It is easier to use than MS Project, probably because it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of MSP. I prefer its simplicity and yet professionalism.

Nachteile:

Open Project doesn't have the following that MS Project has. So, I use it to produce what I need to manage my projects and sometimes have to use MS PowerPoint to communicate with others.

A great alternative to MS Project for collaboration

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: It's perfect to assign tasks and keep track of their progress. Many other free tools can do this but OpenProject adds customizable workflows and detailed dependencies between tasks - and even a Gantt view.
I use it for small and medium projects where live feedback from team members (progress, comments, etc.) is vital. Achieving the same result with MS Project Server would cost exorbitantly more.

Vorteile:

I like the ease of use (I never had to explain how to use it to team members, only to project admins), the clean interface, the granularity of the configuration (most of all the possibility of activating only the needed modules for each project), the customization possibilities for categories/statuses/fact that workflows, the flexibility and ease of query design, the availability of a Gantt view I appreciated also very much that most of the essential features can be used for free without limitations (other tools like Asana limit the number of projects, tasks or team members). Setup was extremely easy (but I'm a skilled technician and tinkerer with over 10 years of sysadmin experience, so your mileage may vary).

Nachteile:

It lacks some important features for project resources management like resource allocation (to spot overloads), resource leveling, resource calendars and resource availability percentage. It also feels a bit skewed towards sw development teams and Agile methodology, so creating a classic waterfall WBS is not as easy as it should be and requires mental discipline; among other things, it does not allow for an easy reordering of tasks after their creation. It does not allow for an easy nor complete import/export from/to MS Project (which IS arguably the industry standard). The reports are not customizable and can only include task list and details (not the Gantt view).

OpenProject is a valid and complete Management Software

5,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

Easy to organize tasks among the members of the team, overview of the working hours. The complete and at the same time simple customization of the information available in boards and gants. A product, on my opinion total complete vs more other similar products on the market. The price is also affordable and is a plus for this product. What makes it perfect for us is the possibility to have it installed on personal servers. The free version cover the 80% of the entire functionality.

Nachteile:

On Task Activity view it would help to have an preview of the images uploaded. The product could be improved by adding more functionalities to the web document creation tool.

Free but great for project management

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I used this platform to manage a project from the office on restoration of public art monuments, involved a lot of staff located in different parts, we had very little time, we managed to complete the project coordinating all activities and tasks with this platform, so it was much easier for me to receive reports from managers and area coordinators, I could detect where there were delays and who were the most efficient in fulfilling their tasks, it is amazing the information you can get from a platform like this

Vorteile:

One of its most emblematic features, is a free platform and open source, you can use it from any operating system, gives you the tools to have control and make the necessary follow-up until the end of the project.

Nachteile:

It should take more advantage of its open-source feature and incorporate more tools and functions.

Very User Friendly!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: This product has helped to organize and streamline the user acceptance testing process!

Vorteile:

Open Project is very easy to navigate, with little-to-no training needed prior. It is easy to help organize project teams and help triage/direct issues found!

Nachteile:

It would help if the amount/types of statuses for each defect were customizable at the project-level. Each project is organized differently, so this would be a huge win!

Antwort von OpenProject

vor 3 Jahren

Thank you very much for your great feedback. At a workaround to have different status on a project level, you can create different types with corresponding status and activate those in different projects according to the projects' needs. We will evaluate the other option as well. Please let us know if you have any more comments or feature requests.

Solid Tool for Project Management

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall this is a go-to program for my occasional project management needs. Very happy with the program in general.

Vorteile:

The biggest draw for me was the price tag - free. I don't know who spent the time to design this program, but it has been an excellent resource for me during the few projects a year when I need a true project management tool. It has a wide variety of features available, and after a few minutes of trial and error, it was easy to pick up the basics. The GANTT chart feature is especially useful and is the component that I use the most.

Nachteile:

Finding some features of the program can be tricky and aren't as user friendly as they could be. Export options seem a little limited.

It is open source. It has a free version to be installed on its own server. It has paid version with hosting and support. It has functionality for all stages of completing a project. Visual of the graphical interface is easy and intuitive.

Nachteile:

technical knowledge is required to install. If you use it as a team (online) you will need to pay for a server where it will be installed.

Excelent project management software

5,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: It is an efficient free project management software

Vorteile:

It is open source. The software is used by a large community of developers. It has the support of large free software companies. Another positive point is that it comes very close to the paid products in relation to features.

Nachteile:

I don't see any problems. This software serves me in everything I need. Sometimes, some limitations in the software are not a disadvantage. At OpenProject, we can do everything we need, because good project management is not software, it is the competence of project management professionals.

Full featured reasonably priced Project Management & Wiki platform

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: When we were looking for a Project Management and Wiki platform, there were a ton of good choices. However our organization has just over 10 people and so none of the free trials would work for us. Also, not very many platforms support Project Management and Wiki functionality, so for most platforms, we'd need a two-headed solution which would cost just under $$$/month. Instead, we found OpenProject, which is perfect. It doesn't look quite as slick as some of the other offerings, but after testing we found it to be just as functional and still pretty easy to use. Best of all, we can keep our organization's Wiki documentation and project tracking in one place. We're using Open Project's could hosting, which costs less... a much better price than anything else on the market that we were able to find. If you already have your own server and don't mind applying a few platform upgrades per year, then you can even get it for free since it's an opensource platform.

Vorteile:

Good user interface, great feature set, better prices.

Nachteile:

User interface doesn't look as slick as Asana's.

Though only working with this tool for a month, it has helped me a lot with project-planning.

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

The interface is really good, inline editing makes the creation and editing of tasks and other data really fast. The roles of different kinds of users are easily customizable. Most features I need for project-management are available in OpenProject. I really like the fact I can host OpenProject on my own server, so I have my data in my own hands.

Nachteile:

OpenProject misses a few features that I think should be available. For instance, it is now possible to export Cost Reports (for instance, Time Sheet logs). This is something I need a lot, to inform customers of the progress of a project. They seem to be working on this feature though. I would like to link the tasks I planned to an external calendar. Maybe a CalDav interface would be a possibility.

Kommentare: The benefits of using OpenProject is that you can perform accurate project planning and resource utilization.

Vorteile:

I really like OpenProject because it is a program that can be easily used to plan projects, load resources and define the dates of activities. Besides, it is a free license.

Nachteile:

What I would like the program to do is to join several projects in one and be able to verify if time or resources that are already being used in another project overlap, to prevent this.

Great Free Project Management Software

4,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

Very easy to get up and running, and the interfaces are very intuitive. Nice way to get a snapshot of current project state. Multiple user accounts allows for associating tasks with users (who get notified via email when updates are pushed)

Nachteile:

A 'server' (always on machine, running a web server and database) is required... would be nice if future iterations were remote browser based.
