    Save time Accuracy No reminders required Successful accomplishment Meeting hassle free deadlines Review one's own performance Increase productivity level Choice of selecting tasks without even missing one Keep track on team accomplishment Self encouragement Maintain and manage - Task to do list Time management

    Pros

    Reports are the new feature that has been added. We have Cloud version installed and really these feature is very useful to get accurate and average reports of tasks and no:of days spent for a particular task of a project in a fraction of seconds. Functionalities of the sub-features under 'Reports' are extremely fast and useful for a software company like our's.
    Resource Utilization page and weekly status are used frequently to capture daily tasks report..

    Cons

    I would suggest if Task# or its title is present in "Resolution Time Report" would be fine. because it already has average days and total no:of days to resolve the tasks with no:of tasks, if just an identification is linked to this feature it would be more transparent to extract reports immediately....

    great for managing simple project assignments and tasks

    Pros

    We used orangescrum to manage our project tasks and collaboration. It was fairly simple to install and use, once you understand the basics of project management

    Cons

    We found the email alerts to be too many and redundant. Customization was also not simple, which eventually led to the application being under utilized by the team, who preferred to use the help desk application

    Pros

    My oversea's project team has been using this software to keep tickets working, communicate back and forth, and set deadlines. I love the way you can just respond back thru the same email that notified me of the communication and not have to log into the actual software and find the ticket to respond. I wish more support companies used this program. Nothing is more frustrating than getting an email that my ticket has been responded to, but I can't see the comment or respond without first logging into the software. OrangeScrum works so well, I almost never see the ticket dashboard. Now that is perfect!

    Cons

    As and end user, I have found nothing I don't like about the software. I only wish more support programs used it. I am a big RackSpace fan, but I hate their ticket support system...OrangeScrum would fix that if only they would give it a try.

    Project Management and Task Management Software that is easy to manage at an affordable rate.

    Pros

    What I like about OrangeScrum is that it has a great user interface that allow you to easily manage projects, monitor tasks and that the open source/community edition has plenty of features. Another great pro is that it's self hosted and you're not storing your complete data set in the cloud.

    Cons

    So far I've not been really able to determine any noticeable cons on this software other than that the software was running unstable after installation. We had to apply some manual code fixes to fix this problem, but it was minor.

    Pros

    Cons

    Links don't always take you to the right places, and the executive level reporting needs improvement.

    Pros

    I like that orangescrum has a lot of customization and has good manageability. Our instance is installed on a dedicated sever on our environment which gives us a lot of control over access

    Cons

    I dislike that it feels like the product feels out of date compared to other solutions. Also, you have to set this product whereas a lot of other similar products work right away without any setup time

    Pros

    I was very impressed with the ease of use of its interface and all its features to manage projects.
    It is a platform that can be customized to our needs.
    It maintains a technical support that offers assistance to any requirement.
    A very important fact for those who manage their projects using other platforms, is that it offers a specialized service in migrating data from their projects to OrangeScrum.

    Cons

    The software seemed quite stable, flexible in its use, but they have many more benefits that are only applicable to your project as long as you acquire the payment license, of which there is a wide variety at affordable prices and according to the importance and complexity of this tool.

    Orange SCRUM is the best solution for project collaboration within a team.

    Pros

    Orange scrum includes an all in one screen covering all modules from project planning to visual project presentation. It is also very simply to understand and use.

    Cons

    It is harware specific in that it only coveres mac, android, iphone and windows. There is no local coverage for linux users apart from the web-based application which not every user will prefer.

    Pros

    Orange Scrum is very versatile, its interface is simple
    to use and allows creating a list of tasks in order to
    notify a work team the progress of the development of the
    project, which is advantageous since it integrates the
    work of the team.
    It has a complete set of manuals for users, as a support for the use of this software.

    Cons

    The use of this tool is extremely easy and its elements meet the
    standards in planning and project management, disadvantage as such
    to the interface I can not find, however it would be great if the
    trial version could be extended a little more.

    Pros

    Cons

    The fact that OrangeScrum is usually unstable and keeps crushing makes it very difficult to work with.

    A Unique Experience When Compared To Other "More Traditional"

    Pros

    Our agency has been through just about every other project management platform there is. Seriously, mention one, and we have used or at the very least demoed it. The ones that we liked were crazy expensive, and the ones that were more reasonably price were only a little better than excel. OrangeScrum has a delightful blend of affordability and features.

    I love the dashboards and views that are available. The Kanban view makes it easy for our teams to coordinate. I can take the resource manager and better coordinate the timelines/deadlines for our clients.

    One unique feature that I have come to love is the "Daily Catchup" which allows me to get an automated summary of everything that was accomplished by my staff during the day. We are not a large company, but sometimes managing team and daily tasks can get a little unwieldy.

    Cons

    The biggest issue that I am having with the platform is the billable time. OrangeScrum allows you to set certain tasks to "billable". It's great but in order to create an invoice, you need to access each "project" individually instead of a global view of all billable items. If we could get that straightened out, I think it would be a huge improvement!

    We are using Orange Scrum for an year after a deep research for a good and affordable online project management tool and we are sure now that we chose the right one.

    Cons

    The interface design is sometimes not as eye-catchy as in other similar but more expensive online project managers.
