Project Management Software

Postby DominicCorso » Tue Jan 08, 2008 8:34 pm

Just a quick question...

When is OpenOffice going to develop or provide a project management tool similar too Microsoft Project?
Or is that not a viable solution in the future?

One incubator project (not officially accepted for integration into OOo main application) works on it:

For a good open source project management, see: OpenProj.

I'll second OpenProj, this appears to be th defacto OpenOffice project management tool until Sun develops their own.

Did you mean the 'de facto open source project management tool'? OpenOffice.org has no involvement with OpenProj, AFAIK.

True. It's been around for a while, and is still a good one as far as I can judge. Alas, OWB is MS Windows only...
Gantt Project is java based, so it's probably even more portable than OpenProj, and it's fairly lightweight. Last time I looked it was somewhat lacking in functionality, and it didn't track dependencies perfectly.
OpenProj is every bit of what I need: It works on all platforms I use, is easy to get started with, and provides advanced functionality.

I am no power user in this area, though, so there may be points that I'm missing...

Something great that I liked about one tool that is free project management software which I recently tried (http://2-plan.com) is the fact that it allows me to get visual representations of my project plan in an easy manner…it used to be a big hassle for me. And it is a free tool available on Mac OS, Linux Variants and Windows and has a lot of functionality. :D

Have a look to http://pm-software.org. This site has several reviews about project management software.

Try to check http://www.timedoctor.com/blog/2011/02/ ... ternatives for different project management alternatives. There could be project management software similar Microsoft Project.

If OpenProj is still available/supported, it may do what you wish.

In the past year I've been using Getting Things GNOME (GTG). I used it to manage care of the backyard garden in 2017.
There's also some old software called "Planner" but I found it too much for my Home use.

AFAIK, Extensis Portfolio is more about asset tracking and not much to do with project planning. Perhaps this shoule be moved to a new thread...

For detailed asset tracking within a large organization, look at the GLPI project. That one was a bit too cumbersome for us, so we are usingITDB. Both are web based, but at least ITDB runs nicely on a WAMP/LAMP stack so you can have it as a standalone installation. (GLPI should work the same, but I don't think I ever tried that.)

Note that security is not a priority with ITDB (e.g. user passwords saved in plaintext on the server). On the other hand, it uses SQLite engine instead of a full DB server, so it is easy to download a copy of your data for backup, or to work on prototypes of new functionality.
