Should we use one to manage the project? If so which one and where will it reside?

Some good ones are:

DotProject
PhpProjekt
TaskJuggler

Thoughts?

Good question. At Chris's suggestion, I took a look at clockingit.com. It looks very suitable for what we are doing. I have already set up an account and had a bit of a play using some of the outline. I will try to have this all in place by Monday, if possible.

Clocking it looks nice (new one for me) but I just gave it a brief scan.

My main concerns are file collaboration and task tracking which it seems to have.

As a hosted application it has both advantages and disadvantages to us but I think at this point it is maybe a good idea to go with hosted as it is one less chore for us to do in setting up a self managed system.

I like it so far.

ClockingIT is what we've used internally at ocProducts for years, it's really nice, never noticed any serious problems :).


Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

I was pleasantly surprised after taking a look at Clocking IT based on Chris's suggestion. It seems to have good collaboration tools with both forums and chat for users, and all the tools needed to manage a project.

I am thinking of adding a "Guest" user with read-only access so that other forum members can take a look at what's on our plate and maybe decide to pitch in. At the very least, it creates the transparency I envision for the project.

I've never used ClockIT, but I'm a big fan of Trello

Just another option in case you want to try it - ClockIT does sounds good.
