Project or Task Managment Software

32 replies
If you use any software to manage your projects or just your tasks... what do you use?

I've so far just been working with folders and trying to keep everything organized like that and have just a sticky notes from windows 7 for my todo list kinda thing.

Any software you guys use?

    I do folders for documents + google calendar + tasks from google calendar for keeping lists. Works very well for me.

    I use the community edition of Feng Office, which is great but requires installation on your own server. It's quite a powerful solution, but the reason I use it is because I can give both clients and outsourcers access. It might be a bit overkill for a one man show, but at least you know it'll grow with you!

    More recently ive been using "Action Machine" as i found a copy of it the other week and had totally forgotten about it.

    Now it isn't really a very good scheduling tool etc unless you can set time limit's on things to lead up to doing a phone call a X oclock but for productivity increase it work's a treat!

    I use a very nice free task management tool called clockingit, you can find it here www.clockingit.com once you get used to it you will save a lot of time. Hope this helps you out. Ohh and you can even give your clients access which most of mine love. Good luck, Kieron

      are you able to have 30 of your contacts lets say,... view only the tasks they need to do?

    Basecamp is all I use. It has reduced my energy and expenses significantly. Without it, I would pay about $1,800 per month in increased personnel expenses.

    BreezePM is quite good as well. Good for individual or team.

    I've been doing research to answer this particular situation for the last 6mths, myself. I've found some pretty good apps; all of which lacked something... whether it be price not right, missing features, flexibility blah blah.

    I looked again at everything mentioned, here and then decided to look at Google Apps one more time to see if they've updated their offering at all.

    That's when I found this...
    Online Project Management, Task Management and Crowdsourcing Software | Smartsheet

    It also integrates with Google Apps... I think my research might be done.

    We have used Google Wave for managing projects when it comes to distributed teams across the globe. The realtime + threaded conversations mode is really useful.

    by the looks of what kind of things are out there at the moment, i think I'm going to go with just sticky notes and ms project and them ... maybe later get basecamp and link it with MS project.

      Thanks for all of the suggestions, I had given up on finding something that worked and did not cost the earth.

      I was looking for a way to manage the resources for my article writer without having to send her a plr pack each week.

      Just finished a trial of Confluence, which looked really good and ticked all of the features boxes, but I spent most of my time ironing out the bugs and when it did start to work, it fell over and refused to work!

      The other related options were stupidly expensive, so had given up and continued with folders and zip files.

      I will take time looking at all of your suggestions and come back with my thoughts.

    Feng seems to be the only one that could fit my needs besides basecamp. Freedcamp was cool but lacking for me.

    I will post an update, hopefully feng does it!

      Are you using FengSky or hosting on your own server?
