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

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.

Keeps me on track and reminds me when I need to do things.

Pros

The development team is constantly improving the software and it seems to get better and better.

The interface is really nice, and it's very intuitive. You have have lists or kanban boards for tasks, and subtasks too. The projects are colour coded and it's easy to navigate them.

You can import tasks from an excel sheet which is really helpful if you have a standard list of tasks for each new project.

The free version is perfect for me since I work on my own but I can see that it would be great for teams to use as well.

Cons

At the moment you can't have recurring tasks, which is a massive negative. However, this this planned to be included in 2018 I believe.

The Android app is currently a bit basic (and not very stable on my tablet), but I believe this is also due for an upgrade in 2018 so fingers crossed it will get better.

Task reminders could be better - at the moment you can set filters to show tasks due in a certain number of days, but it's a bit clunky and it would be helpful to have start and end dates for tasks rather than just single dates.

Hi,

Just an update. Start date for tasks is available on Business Plan and we plan to add it to Lite plan as well in 2018. You are correct regarding recurrent tasks - planing to add in Q1 2018 to all paid plans.

New daily/weekly digest reminding on missed deadlines for both start and due dates in tasks, milestones, issues is coming early Jan,

Thanks for your review!

I was able to take a complex project and lay it out for others to easily join and pick up their tasks. It's made it easier to track progress and watch milestones without depending on emails, memory, etc.

Pros

I like that it allows me to organize my project for free. I have a nonprofit that I set up which is big enough that I cannot do everything myself. Freedcamp allows me to bring in other team members and assign tasks to everyone, while also letting everyone see their the overall progress. Some of the UI is a little clunky, but it is relatively clean and easy to use.

Cons

The UI could stand to be compacted as your project grows. Freedcamp was not built for very large projects. Buttons seem large and everything is spread across the screen. Could do a lot more with the available real estate.

I also like the steps to add a new projects and their details.
Interface is very easy to use. You don't need to keep a manual with you while using this system.

Cons

As of now there is no any feature I like the least about this software. However, the color combination may be improved a little bit. This will make it more attractive.

Everything. I like how all my tasks are in one spot, I can go back and look to see what design decisions were made weeks ago in the discussions module, AND the time tracker has made my life so much easier.

Well, on a few projects I've had to link in the client for notes and discussion and they haven't really taken to the platform or even tried to learn it. Which is kind of a pain and definitely their problem.

Hi Drew,

I would suggest to sign up for those clients and subscribe them to a minimum of discussions and try to teach them that they can reply to Freedcamp notifications to post a comment when you need their feedback. They can even attach files to those replies - they will be also parsed and attached to comments they emailed to Freedcamp.

Pros

You can just jump in and use it without any advanced computer skills and your data is regularly backed up. It's just so easy to get up and going immediately. You can run multiple projects at a time.

The other things I really like about Freedcamp is the speedy, knowledgeable and friendly help desk service, as well as the ability to post suggested improvements in a public forum that other users can comment and vote on. It's like being part of a development team all working to create the best programme possible.

Also, Freedcamp kindly sponsored our non-profit community event by giving us access to all the add-ons at no cost. Apart from producing a wonderful product, it demonstrates a social conscience that is a rarity today. We are extremely grateful to them for supporting us.

Cons

I honestly can't think of a thing. It did everything we needed it to. I would recommend it to others in a heartbeat - particularly to small community groups that don't use project management software on a regular basis or have a large organisation behind them with lots of computer skills. This isn't to say it's not a complex and well-engineered product suitable for a wide range of organisations and businesses - simply that it's designed so that people with ALL levels of experience can use it.

If I had to make a comment on what I'd like to see with Freedcamp, it would be that it is more widely advertised online so that when people search for project management software, it's right there in your face and you don't have to go looking through lists of other, more complex and expensive options. :-)

It helps me keep track of pendent tasks and information on simultaneous projects that I work on. As a graphic and web designer, I use it to organize and prioritize my tasks and to register the information that needs to be at hands for each project.

Pros

It is very easy to use and to adapt to an existing workflow.
Information is organized concisely and clearly along the interface, something that doesn't seem to happen in simliar tools.

Cons

It lacks some features (that seems to be in current development) like an API for integration with other applications and custom status for tasks.

Flawlessly manages complicated project structures with added features for storing and sharing passwords and communicating with clients and team members regarding projects. For a free for most service it's impeccable and a whole lot more simple to use than basecamp.

Some of the add ons are quite expensive and the invoicing system is very basic but as a standalone project service it's brilliant.

This software saves me time when doing my monthly timesheets and reports. It has helped me to better organize my work life, and my home life. I am looking forward to seeing this as a phone app, so that I can have access to it quickly, and on the go. Thank you to the freedcamp team.

Pros

Each project can be divided into task groups, which allows for a better separation of goals. The tool is probably designed for groups and teams to work together. But I am still in the midst of encouraging my team to use it officially. Currently, the Tasks page works well for self management. I am able to write as many notes as I like, set due dates which will show red when I am approaching the deadline. I love organization, and this page is by far the most useful for me. As a developer at a small company, I am responsible for many different tasks concerning several different projects at any given time. All of these tasks have deadlines and sometimes highly time sensitive. Coming into the task page and seeing things labeled in red, and due dates visible makes my job a little easier to manage. Before this, I was using Google Spreadsheets with the rest of my team to track tasks and deadlines. They still use Google, but I have been using this more and more. Even for my personal task and goals outside of work.

Cons

I like the time tracker. But I feel it could be better organized. It would be useful to store a collection of time records in an archived folder somewhere. I use the time records to keep track of my time each month, in order to bill my client. But after the bill is sent out, I no longer need to see the previous months records. However I would like to access them quickly without playing with the current filter setting. It would also be nice to have a MAX TIME option for a time record. Sometimes I get distracted and forget to hit the stop button. When I return to the time record, it may have 100+ hours and counting. Then I have to guess when I actually stopped working on the task. A selected many feature would be nice as well, in order to delete multiple records at once. I love the Tasks page, but I probably spend more time in the Time tracker page.

Hi Uriah,

Thank you for a great review!

Later this year you will see more new cool things related to Time/Tasks/Invoices
- set estimate hours on a task
- track time on Tasks - tasks will be exposed to Time app
- time will be tracked for each manual entry or each timer run separately so we can tell how many exactly hours/min you spent this week or this month
- Invoices app will allow to bill client by completed tasks or time period you select. Billed entries will be clearly marked and easily filtered out. You will also be able to pull a combination of completed only and, for example, last month.

- if you worked on a long task and spent 40 hours (billed) last week and 25 hours (not billed) this week - time entry will be marked as partially billed.

And yes - we will definitely add an email and pop-up reminder when timer is running more than 8 hours.

As always - I am happy to chat 1:1 directly to better understand requirements.

Cheers,
Igor

I only took a quick peek to test if Freedcamp would be suitable for my purposes. The interface is clear and simple, and the onscreen tips (which I normally find annoying) are genuinely helpful.

Creating new tasks is a breeze. Ditto for setting due dates and priorities. However, there doesn't seem to be a way of creating task dependencies, which is a little frustrating.

I thought I would love the calendar view of tasks and deadlines, and it is very easy to read. However, I realise that seeing only a few days or a month at a time doesn't allow you the "big picture" view of your project. I tend to work from day to day, and I'm hoping to find a PM app that will help me keep on top of deadlines, but also keep my eye on the longer-term tasks. I don't love Gantt charts, but I appreciate their worth. Even having a year-long or 3-month view of the calendar would help.
