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

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.

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.

It allows me to come into work and immediately know what tasks I have to get on with.

Pros

It doesn't frontload all of its features keeping the general view looking nice and simple and streamlined, while still offering plenty of options should you want/need them.

Cons

I could see its UI getting a bit strained if you would be assigning lots of small tasks constantly but at the amount I use it at currently, this has yet to be an issue.

ability to organize long-term projects and tasks and create structure within company

Pros

Time tracker: the time tracker is really beneficial because many of services don't offer them and you have to use a separate app for it so it's nice to have everything in one.

Unlimited projects: Many services restrict you on what you can create and they don't

Task lists: Ability to categories tasks within projects really helps make it clearer and easier to use

Price: doesn't break your wallet but offer most if not all that you need

Cons

No offline version: we have tasks offline too and sometimes the internet is a distraction so it'd be nice to have an environment that syncs when one re-connects

It be nice if was easier to get support

I like that we have our project management, collaboration and calendaring tools in one place. Additionally, with their wiki tool, we can move our process documentation and eliminate the additional cost of the process management app we were paying for.

Pros

I like that it is structured like true project management software hierachy - projects, tasks and subtasks, yet you have the option of different views - task list, kanban and Gantt.

Cons

They have a free forever plan, but found it necessary to upgrade to a paid plan to get the features we wanted, despite having a very small number of users. Wish the plans were based more on users vs. features.

Pros

It is easy to use and intuitive. The file sharing is really valuable; you can set up your own project repository and use version control. The project lists and tasks are easy to setup and it's easy to upload or download project plans and they can be tied to a milestone.Select between list view and kanban view- which gives a quick overview of current status. Discussion page for team members is also very handy. Another great help is time tracking which can be tied to a specific task.

Cons

The only negative I have found is that you can only assign one team member to a task, or the whole team. The only way to get around that is to duplicate tasks. Also- it would be great with a function that duplicate tasks.

The most complete free tool to manage and monitoring your projects.

Pros

It is very complete, because besides the normal tools of a free project tool like Gantt Chart and calendar, you can also manage milestones, discussions, a wiki tool, a wall and my favorite the issue tracker, that allows you to search and speficic task to modify or add information, I think that Freedcamp is one the best free option to work in projects.

Cons

You need people very engage to work with you in this kind of app, because it demands a lot of time and responsability, and if you do not work with the right people you have to know that the app will not do the work for you, because it is only a help.

ability to manage and work with multiple projects with ease.

Pros

Functionality, ability to cascade tasks. Layout easy to find multiple projects. Colour coding helps as well.

Cons

It would have been good if additional sub tasks (up to 3 or 4 layers) was supported. Please note I have only used the free version, so may be there is a limitation.

Pros

I've been using Freedcamp for a few simpler projects and it has everything you need:

- Gantt charts to get a bird's eye view of your project
- easy storage of passwords, access codes etc.
- define tasks and subtasks
- Create tasks either as a list or arrange them in a sticky like note fashion
- You can extend the app with addons you can get from a built-in App Store

Also it's great for collaborating with other members as it's very simple to invite external users to your projects to work together

Cons

The interface is a bit old school for my taste and the task options are quite basic out of the box.

Being able to create invoices is a nice feature, but it's a bit cumbersome and unfortunately too basic for European law. Day to day features like reverse charge invoices between members of the EU are not possible to do because there doesn't seem to be any way to add text fields to invoices to include e.g. the customer's VAT number.

What's also lacking is a thorough right's management. E.g. you work together with a freelancer who can set the price he is charging you, but cannot see which price you put into a custom field he doesn't have access to.

Apart from that I'm quite happy about the software actually.

Better overall project management and task tracking.

Pros

I liked the sharing ability and the being able to break a larger project down into smaller tasks. I liked being able to have many projects and to group the projects by the different companies I was working with. It was very easy to get started and helped me frame several smaller projects as complete jobs.

Cons

I would get more involved in setting up the projects than doing the actual work - that is probably me and not the software.

You won't regret it for managing small projects. It is easy to use and creating tasks is fast and user friendly. Alerts and notifications are great and assigning roles and task won't be a problem. If you are looking for something free and affordable this is the task management software for you.

Pros

Free for unlimited users and projects (limited to 10MB file size limit) and the paid versions are affordable. Creating new tasks is fast and updating task stages and assigning them is a breeze. It makes communication easy and tasks are well organized. I been using this for some time now and it didn't disappoint my expectations.

Cons

There are some small limitations like moving tasks between projects and the fact that there is no mobile app, unfortunately. It is also kinda complicated to rename files and folders. It would be nice to have a Gantt Chart too, as clients usually ask for that. If it has a mobile app, that would be great to communicate and manage tasks straight from the mobile.

It helped us in our earlier stages of project management and team alignment

Pros

We used Freedcamp for a few months and it really helped us align our team's projects and tasks. Intuitivne and easy to use, it did the job it was supposed to do.

Cons

It's too basic. You cannot edit project phases - there are only 3 basic stages : to do, in progress, done. If your team is practicing scrum, you see the problem. I think it's a good tool to start with, but as your appetites and team's projects get more complex, it will become obsolete.

We think that each task can be only in progress, not in progress or completed but true - not in progress task can have a clarification sub-status like 'waiting for a feedback' or 'postponed' and we do consider adding sub-statuses in the future.

Things like Testing, Review - task lusts can be used to handle. task in Testing task list will still be in progress, not started or completed because if you set it as status you will never know if actual testing phase not started, in progress or completed.

To handle this in Kanban view we plan to allow to switch Kanban view to show columns as task lists in addition to by status available now.

Hope it helps what is planned and what to expect.

Igor

Pros

As independent contractors, we are often added as team members to other project management platforms. After using Slack, Trello, BaseCamp, Jira and others, we actually opted for Freedcamp for our own internal purposes. We find it doesn't have the steep learning curve required to adequately and accurately use the features and functionality available and isn't nearly as overwhelming to uninitiated clients, increasing user engagement and buy-in. We recently upgraded to the Business version, but found that the free version met most of our needs for the first 2 years of use. The time-tracking feature is especially nice, and is what originally drew us to Freedcamp over some of the other options at the time.

Cons

The app isn't nearly as robust as the desktop version, being limited primarily to the management of tasks only. If some of the other features were integrated, I would be hard-pressed to find another platform to recommend as broadly to a wide variety of clients as I do Freedcamp.

Pros

I have been designing websites for clients for almost 10 years now. In that time, I've tried (or been forced to use) Basecamp, Trello Business Class, Wrike, Teamwork, Harvest, Jira, Feng Office and a smattering of other solutions. On DAY 1 of my trial with Freedcamp, I knew I was going to subscribe. Freedcamp had everything I needed to shift my business' workflow and get my team on the same page, in one platform, including encryped password storage, a wiki, bug tracker, integration with Google Drive, and Calendar... this app is a home run!

Cons

The mobile app should have the ability to track time and I would like to be able to assign tasks to Guest users so clients can have limited access to their project but still receive notifications of new tasks that they might need to act on.
