    Muy bueno para el manejo de proyectos en linea. En velocidad no es tan rápida pero tampoco no lenta, respecto a usabilidad es intuitivo. Gracias

    Its a good project management software, I think it is going to be real good on future releases from upcoming v1.1 To be fully great you have to buy the plugins that adds gantt views, tasks, comments, etc. At the moment it has some cosmetic bugs, and the projects dont have an editable start date, so if you have the gantt plugin you see the start dates always on the start date of the main project. Sometimes is confusing the use and general navigation, not a problem but for low knowledge users it might be difficult to get used to. There is no manual to give to users, so you have to prepare a manual to explain the system workflow/use The gantt plugin wont let you configure its looks (colors/width and height for it) I will wait for Collabtive future updates, but meanwhile I still looking for another online project management solution.

    Mostly good, has a nice interface, easy to install, reasonably easy to learn. In its current form, this cannot really be considered a project management system. More of a deluxe TODO list. It has a fixed five-level hierarchy: "projects" are at the top level; "milestones" have a project as their parent entity; "task lists" have a milestone as their parent entity; "tasks" have a task list as a parent; "timetracker" events (i.e. individual work intervals) link to a task. There are some limitations in the hierarchy, for example it is easy to see task lists with the tasks grouped under each list, but difficult to see which task lists are grouped under which milestones. It feels a bit incomplete in this respect. Other project management software shows a nice tree view which can expand and collapse however you like. You can set a due-date for each task, but you can't plan ahead with a start-date on the tasks. As far as I can discover there's no way to link the tasks so that starting one task depends on finishing an earlier task (e.g. you can't set user acceptance testing to require the release to be complete). Does not support local holidays, overtime, travel time, nor is it suitable for resource allocation. Many modules are available as proprietary plugins for purchase, so possibly the GPL framework has been left a bit spartan to provide space for modules. For example, if you want a Gantt chart, that's a module to purchase. I'm sure you could write your own modules or pay the original author to put together what you need, if it came to that. The reports are a bit limited too, trying to figure out how much workload falls on each worker is difficult. When you export the time tracker to CSV it gives you the task name, but does not mention the higher categories each task belongs to (i.e. task list, milestone, etc), which is going to make it difficult to produce a project overview. As a project data entry tool and general time tracker it could be good, you would have to slurp that data out of MySQL and feed it into something more advanced to do real project management.
