    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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

    An easy and modern way to manage 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

    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.

    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 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.

    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

    Good user interface, great feature set, better prices.

    Cons

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

    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.

    Pros

    Nice interface and build upon a good concept.

    Cons

    The need for enterprise features.

    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!

    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

    Pros

    Good functionality

    Cons

    Lacking gantt chart drag and drop
