Pros: It is very useful because it is in the possibility of working with large projects. It also offers the possibility of working with calendars, it is a free software management project, so you save money. I can open Microsoft Project files. It runs on the Java platform so it can run on different operating systems.

Cons: In many computers where it has been updated to that version, OpenProject has stopped working correctly. When executing the program, certain files that incorporate some of the most complex functions can not be read. Long process of integration to the company, it is necessary to train employees.

Overall: It allows the management of several modules in each of the processes within the company using, for example, workflows created in relation to the purposes of each activity.

Pros: It allows you to organize your tasks from the conception of the idea and scope of the project to the separation by stages and organization by estimated production times, I use very often the Gantt diagram and the calendar I think they are very well elaborated to define time of production of each task of my projects and adjust them in relation to the established schedule.

Cons: It has a variety of options and tools that did not allow it to be implemented due to ignorance of its operation and utility, which represents a loss since it did not succeed.

Overall: It seems to me an effective tool to define the scope of my projects, I can work several projects in parallel and have a calendar organized according to the tasks and times of each one.

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.

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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

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

Pros: You can register quickly, its interface is very clear to use the available tools and start organizing and planning your projects and tasks in stages and using a calendar and time to optimize your work.

Cons: The information available and provided by the provider is somewhat complicated and limited, in that sense you must resort to other means to learn and take advantage of the tool correctly, it is basic in its main options.

The Gantt Chart is similar in operation to other platforms, I think it is something that can be improved.

Overall: To organize the projects is very useful, then you already understand how it works you can organize very well to establish deadlines and stages in each area of your projects and that is very efficient because it optimizes my professional work time, it is even useful to organize your life personal.

Pros: The feature that I liked more about Openproject is that it has projects can contain a git repository. It offers project management tools similiar to any other software in that area. It is also free to install in your own machines.

Cons: The Visual could be improve I think. Also the Git support is primitive at the moment, it only shows the previous commits and diff. It could display the readme.md such as GitHub

Overall: It is a great alternative to MS projects. Even some of its features are primitive, they might get expanded in the future.

I beleive this is best and very easy to use tool for managing your projects

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.

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: The most is that this software is free, under no licenses nor trial version

Cons: You could miss some perfomance and funtionality in the case your are expertise user of other Project software like MS Project for instance.

Overall: I have two computers one with a MS Project license for profesional use and the other one with Open Project. That bring me the oportunity to open MS Project files in both computers with a single license.

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 :-)

Pros: Well, first of all it's Open Source and it has a good community. You've got a lot of functionality and control over everything. I like the welcome screen as it has all the necessary links to Help files and the pop-up video is a good addition. Takes a tiny bit of a learning curve to get everything set-up but once it's done it's great.

Standard Templates for Tasks would be a nice feature too, and in general there is a lot of enterprise features which is not there.
