Collabtive:Open Source Collaborative Project Management Software

There are a few project management solutions if you are having a team to work with globally and you would want a centralize place to:

  • handle project calendars
  • handle project tasks
  • email to all
  • host your documents

Open source solution OpenGoo is one of them. Today, i found another one in Collabtive. Like many web based tools they serve as alternatives to Basecamp. Features touted by Collabtive are:

Core functionality

  • Unlimited projects, milestones, tasklists, and tasks
  • Unlimited members with user profiles
  • Role-based permission management
  • Messaging and instant messaging
  • File management
  • Timetracking

Reporting and notifications

  • Timetracker reports, activity logs and messages in PDF format
  • Export user profiles as vCard
  • RSS feeds for messages and tasks
  • Synchronization of calendars via iCal task export
  • Excel files from activity logs and timetracker reports
  • E-mail notifications

Other

  • Search, tags
  • Basecamp import
  • Fully themeable
  • Available in more than 25 languages
  • Full UTF8 support

Who is it for?

OpenGoo and Collabtive are for teams that have a small webhosting and can mount a php based web application such as OpenGoo and Collabtive.

Installation is not difficult and you should be able to get it up and running very fast.

Alternatively, if you are a guy that wants to do your own scheduling and practice Getting Things Done where information is on your own server, you might be interested in this solution as well.

    its open source. you dun have to pay that much for Basecamp. but essentially many of them are riding on Basecamp’s idea really.
