Pros: OrangeScrum is a software that has all the necessary features for project control softwares.

I like that the registration is very simple, the price is easy to understand and perhaps for teams of many people can reduce the usual cost of this type of software.

It includes time log, generation of invoices, control of tasks, assignment of responsible, management of the status of each task within the project. It has a Gant view and another Kanban view.

Cons: What I do not like is that at the design level it does not look modern and maybe it can improve in that sense; however, it works as it should.

Another thing that I do not like is in the subject of the invoice, I can not change the location of the elements of the invoice to adapt it to my current invoice scheme.

Similarly, the invoices are not intended for a public outside the United States, for example, for the Latin American market it is necessary to include fields within the invoice that do not exist in this application.

Overall: It allows me to take control of my development projects. We are currently evaluating it and I think it can be an option against the popular Atlassian Jira.

I think that to achieve a significant cost savings, it should be used in groups of 10 or more users.

I must say the customer service is very remarkable. I am actually very impressed

Pros: It allows self hosting. And it's free source. I like the fact you can redesign it to whatever you want from it.

Cons: It has certain limitations without premium features. It has a few needed add-one disabled on the free software

Overall: It helps my project manager to manage her projects as well as get notifications. And I have the opportunity to customize the software to the company needs

Amazing customer support!

Pros: The customer support email team is awesome. This software is really user friendly and very simple to use.

Cons: It's almost too simple at times, but it's good for beginners and very easy for a whole team to use, so sometimes simple is good.

Pros: This is a simpler project management software that is easy to use with a great customer service team. The price is super low and the layout is very intuitive.

Cons: There is very little personalization and very few bells and whistles, which is something I actually like and look for in a software.

Really good opens source software. It helps organizing projects.

Pros: Easy to use, yet full of functionality. Different ways to view projects and tasks. Mail notifications. Project reports.

Cons: 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.

It is definitely the most practical and functional to direct projects

Pros: It is a highly manageable project platform, very intuitive, very sequential processes, support templates for any type of project and a series of tasks and activities designs that allow you to give a timely follow-up to your projects and the collaborators of your company.

Overall: with a design suitable for monitoring senior executives / everything is fabulous, it is graphic, modern, intuitive, easy to navigate, applicable to all kinds of projects, excellent!

Simple and easy to use project management tools. Really love the quick and responsive support!

Pros: Simplicity and easy to use. Has many add-ons and very modular. The people behind this product support are excellent, they provide quick responses to problems I had before. For me this product is best value for money to spend on project management tools.

Cons: Its too bad the application written in PHP. There is no option to personalize themes through configuration panel. I also cannot found a documentation to write an add-on.

Overall: I can handle and monitor the progress of my projects through websites and mobile devices.

Pros: This is a pretty good start to much needed open source, self hosted option for project management software platform, but....

Cons: Wow this web application is horrible under the hood. Terrible documentation, difficult to safely install and customize, even worse security and super buggy. Plus their website and business approach is like a late night infomercial... Buy buy buy... Now now now!

Nothing about this project inspires trust for professionals looking for a good project manager tool.

Overall: Headache

If you're searching for a modern and open source project management tool OrangeScrum may be the best

Pros: 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
- Inexpensive

Cons: 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)

the experience in terms of project accountability that the software has provided is exemplary. kudos

Pros: Free, works

Cons: gantt charts require paid module, security poor, inflexible install (or poor documentation).

Overall: Installing other than the default (dedicated site) is tricky - I never got a sub_folder path install to work. The default security is scary - they suggest making the webroot directory world writable (not necessary - just set the group to www-data and group writable).

The cool add-ons are never free. Gantt etc are another $ - depending. However, it is smooth and easy to use once installed and provides a nice free self-hosted project manager for simple projects.

Recommendations to other buyers: Use a default (site specific) setup.

Nice, free and Open Source

Comments: Very very easy to use. A nice onboarding.
We love it since we started using it.
Everything is there for Project management and collaboration.

The only cons I feel that, there is no direct contact to Orangescrum via Phone.
But the Email support is so good that, you don't need the Phone number.
