Pros

It was very simple to learn how to use this software. We used it for managing tasks on my small team of 3. It only took me an hour or two to get used to.

Cons

While it works well, we ended up not using it because it didn't make sense with how many tiny and last minute tasks we had.

My Favorite Project Management Application

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Freedcamp is an amazing tool that works well in small businesses with no need for Program or Portfolio Management. Managing multiple projects at that level might not be an easy thing to do. I track a dozen projects at any given time, but my business structure is simple and does not rely on overly complex resource allocations or time management... I am a small shop managing projects as needed, keeping tabs on time spent for billing, and track of tasks to be completed. Freedcamp does provide a means of tracking milestones as well and fits the bill to my exact business needs. From what I can see with my daily use, Freedcamp can be cumbersome in environments with heavy development. It does not provide for defect management, testing, etc. It is a task board that can be customized to fit many needs, but definitely not an enterprise tool.

Pros

Freedcamp provides a flexible and effective pricing structure to fit any business needs, including a free account. The list of standard features alone are impressive: shared file management, tasks, discussion boards, calendar, message boards, unlimited users, projects and storage, even time tracking... a feature that is often considered a premium with other project management applications. It has a pleasant UI which makes it easy to use. Even the setup is easy. Most of all, it provides customization at each project level. The home page now offers a dashboard that displays specific information for each logged in user. Get a bird's eye view of your work, updates, projects and weekly calendar overview on a single page to start off your day. Want an even more customized experience? Head straight to the widgets and create your own dashboard tailored to your specific needs. Freedcamp also provides the ability to change the display of many pages to a different view (i.e. view projects as cards or as a list).

Cons

I use the free account because it provides me with all the features I find essential for my simple business structure. But, it would be nice if there was some sort of basic or simple reporting features at this level. Unfortunately, reporting is only part of their paid subscription. But their pricing is low enough that it is actually worth forking out the extra few bucks. For as long as I have been using Freedcamp, I have not yet encountered anything else I would consider a con, as it has provided me with a solution to all of my project management needs. I do not work with Program or Portfolio Management, so I am not sure if Freedcamp provides such level of management. Based on their features list, this does not appear to be something Freedcamp has been designed to do. But if Program or Portfolio Management is not a part of your environment, Freedcamp is definitely worth looking into.

Good product and a good value. I recommend taking a look at freedcamp.

Pros

The first thing that stands out about freedcamp is it's ease of use. There really isn't much of a learning curve with it. It has all the core features I need, and simplifies project tracking.

Cons

There are a few things that I wish I could do, such as tracking subtask on a calendar view and assigning due dates to subtasks. You can get around it with different structures, but would be nice additions.

Working with Clients is Easier with FreedCamp

Ease-of-use

N/A
Value for Money

Freedcamp is cloud-based and lets me work with clients who live anywhere in the world. For many connections, it eliminates the need to use email or dropbox when sharing project information and I like the ability to have conversations where the comments are contained in one place for further reference. It was not too difficult to set up and seems fairly intuitive for most clients who are already familiar with the internet. The price, at free, is rather unbelievable and a real help to small shops and studios.

Pros

The program is easy to learn, provides quite a bit of storage for free and allows clients to have access to the project process with milestones, deadlines, assigned tasks and the ability to upload documents to the project. It also sends notifications when new information is added, making it easy to keep up with client requests. For people new to project management software, this is a good program to get started with. There are a lot of tutorials for the program, which I find very helpful.

Cons

It has been a little complicated for a few of my clients to understand how to use right out of the gate. This is probably something I will have to create a short tutorial video to solve.

N/A

Have fun but take a tutorial how to use this. It isn't bad but a little difficult to grasp but worthwhile if you can shift the gears in your favor.

Pros

I used this project management software for my volunteer involvement in the PMI. It worked well but it wasn't as user friend as other PM software like Basecamp. Freedcamp has a lot to offer when you need to get very technical and sort your projects.

Cons

I didn't find it as easy to adopt and get around right away. It took time and needs training in order to understand how to leverage it for its intended PM use.

Freedcamp has been an excellent choice for working with a geographically spread-out team, both in terms of functionality and cost.
Our communications have improved, it is easy to see where a project is up to, and the integrations work well for us, in the main. Whenever I have had a (usually small) issue with anything in the system, Igor is always quick to respond and help get it sorted for me :).

Pros

Easy to use, good choice of task views and usage, customer service is excellent.
Several new features have been added since we started using Freedcamp, and each one has been a benefit and improvement.

Cons

Anything that I haven't liked, or have wanted to improve, is listened to and usually implemented in some form, or is being worked on. The limitations we have come across are mostly to do with 3rd party integrations and are not the fault of Freedcamp itself.

Helps me and my colleagues to manage 30+ projects in parallel with ease, is a great project archive / "memory" and very inuitive to use
-> little to no onboarding time needed for new users

Pros

See above :)

Plus ease of use, a slick UI and a very thought-trough incremental improvement process of functionality usefull to all users.

Cons

It would be great if GANTT chart functionality would be part of the "Freelancer" plan already (but that is more a personal wish, not a problem with the service per se).

I use Freedcamp to help facilitate my programming consulting center at a small university. We have many small projects and work on a lot of things at once across a lot domains, so keeping track of everything is a challenge.

Pros

I love how customizable and modular the system is. It is perfect and has lots of options to grow with my needs, even in its most basic free version. The support team has been really responsive and helpful too! Last but not least, I love having the mobile app, I feel better having access to my projects on the go anywhere.

Cons

The only downside that I would say is the mobile app, but its mostly a personal preference. I think the app could behave a lot more like the browser version of Freedcamp, that would make my life a lot easier.

You can't assign tasks to private groups or make them hidden from specific people, which is a bummer since it would be nice to differentiate what tasks are for an internal team as opposed to a guest/contributor/client

Pros

If you haven't heard of Basecamp, then you haven't really thought about project management software. Basecamp is one of the most known and most talked about project management software. Freedcamp is the free alternative to basecamp. They are currently working on the phone applications, but the website does all the things you need a project management software to do- and of course it's FREE.

Cons

Well it's free, some of the options are limited. But the paid options can supplement

It is a great tool to manage different types of projects without a lot of complication. The interface is fairly simple and the free plan has unlimited projects and users. I work with a lot of creatives that honestly hate any type of "office software" but they actually like this program!

Pros

Freedcamp has an all free version that is very feature rich. Unlimited users and projects make it a no brainer for someone that needs simple, yet effective project management. I had looked at several others and really loved Bitrix24 BUT the training time for Bitrix was insane for other people and overly complicated. Freedcamp is something I can use with anyone that doesn't have any "project management software" experience and can stay on track. My team was VERY happy with this choice.

Cons

There really aren't a lot of cons about the software. I do wish that it had a Gmail function (much like Wrike) that you could easily add emails into a project. Other than that its pretty awesome.

Hi Ryan,

We are GDPR compliant and it is totally separate and different from an ability to run Enterprise Freedcamp in an isolated environment in AWS region of your choice.

I would not say that we 'do not take GDPR seriously' as we changed all processes to comply and received https://twitter.com/Freedcamp/status/1007494358046793728

I'm a huge loyal fan of Freedcamp. When my business partner brought it up to me, I was all on board for something that was a mixture of Trello + Asana.

Freedcamp helps me stay organized so I feel like I'm on top of my workload, instead of drowning in it!

Pros

I've only been using Freedcamp for a few weeks, but I like it better than any other PM program I've used. Most are built for teams - and this one can certainly be used that way - but unlike the others, it works very, very well for a "solopreneur." I love that I can organize my work by client, but still get a holistic view of the work due for the days ahead.

I also like that it's so easy to use that adding tasks doesn't feel like a task unto itself. Freedcamp is fitting very nicely into my workflow. Another benefit: like Basecamp, it emails out a daily snapshot, in case you're like me and view your email on your phone before you get to your desk. It's nice to see what's ahead for the day before I sit down for the daily grind.

Honestly, this is so good, I can't believe it's free. And I've only scratched the surface of available features!

Cons

I wish there was a setting that said I was on my own so I didn't have to remember to assign things to myself.
