We hope you started the year good.
This week another tips and tricks from PullesSon, but again not an Android specific one.
Like all start-ups we also started searching for solutions to collaborate and project planning. Of course as start-up time is money and there is not much money available. So we started looking for several open-source and easy to setup project management tools.
We used several like dotProject, ProjectOpen, OpenProj and many others. But all had a lot of options and configurations that made it hard to let them work on a self-hosted server. Then we came by TeamBox.
This collaboration and project management tool is easy to setup and has a small and simple wizard to add your first organization, project and tasks. Adding projects, add people to projects and add tasks is really intuitive and easy. The collaboration part has a nice layout and easy to use and understand.
The calendar part is very useful to have an over view the project planning and easy syncable to Google Calendar.
The files part per project is a cool feature and file can be used in the collaboration conversations also, these file can also link directly to a dropbox.
A simple layout overview:
If you don’t have a server, you can always use one of their plans specially the free plan with maximum 3 projects and 50MB storage.
TeamBox is a must for start-ups and even 1 person companies to quick and easy manage the projects, tasks and planning.
The only things we miss are:
1. Add an estimation when planning a task.
2. An Android app (If TeamBox reads this, feel free to contact us).
