Pros: Offers almost all the features required for an efficient project management
A very modern user interface
An opensource version and even a docker image

Cons: Bugfixing is a little bit slow
The docker images are not updated regularly
Support for the free/opensource version could be better

Overall: An easy and modern way to manage projects.

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

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Worked great for me! I like it!!

Pros: Very good to organize your projects, its free to implement, I feel it very easy to use a good option for free

Cons: I think it is not very flexible with other files. The performance could be better. The interface can improve

It is easy to get the first thing done and I'm happy about the way it is oganized.

Pros: The possibility to tag files to issues und to trak the issues over the workflow. The difference between files at tasks and documents is very good to get projects organized.

Cons: The way of handling the timeline is not flexible as it shoud. The connectivity of phases and related issues could be better and more flexible in the way of doing frame timing and not exactly the issue time.

Overall: Hopefully a better traked workflow over the different projects and a easier comunication to the other projekt partners. Because of the web based interface the possible international incooperating of people on the project.

Pros: Good user interface, great feature set, better prices.

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

Overall: 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.

Pros: Nice interface and build upon a good concept.

Cons: The need for enterprise features.

Overall: Ressource Management for managing your resources on a time basis, time management could be very improved.
Standard Templates for Tasks would be a nice feature too, and in general there is a lot of enterprise features which is not there.

Comments: My first experience with any project management tool and its going great. Only using it in a very basic manner at the moment. Some short comings maybe with timelines and some filtering of work packages but my expectations may be too much. Keep up the good work and try get the price down a bit for single users/small teams!

Pros: Good functionality

Cons: Lacking gantt chart drag and drop
Work packages interface cluttered

Overall: Would love to have a "print" or "report" function for management reporting.
Haven't found yet how to do budget planning per quarter (actuals for the past, forecasts for the future, estimate-to-complete for the project) so that I can forecast when we expect invoices and cash-outs. On the same note would be able to consolidate on project portfolio level

Recommendations to other buyers: Printing, please printing :-)
