Web2Project for online project management

Publicado el viernes, 8 de julio de 2011

There is much to win from the people at Web2Project from more visibility online. I would not have found if my DotProject install had not ceased to work after the 2.1.5 upgrade. And because I was unable to make a fresh install of DotProject on a different server.

Frustrated by both events, and because I was tired of dealing with minor and major issues that have lingered for many years in DotProject, I started googling the words “alternative for”. I say this with all respect to the excellent work the DotProject team has done, because they have lead the way for open source project management software.

As it turned out, upgrading from DotProject 2.1.3 to Web2Project was easier than upgrading DotProject with it’s own software from 2.1.3 to 2.1.5. And the upgrade went smooth without any loss of data. All my projects, tasks, contacts and hours are there. And suddenly many of the small but annoying missing features in DotProject are no longer an issue. Web2Project is indeed an excellent upgrade path.

After using Web2Project for a week, I have the following viea on the major improvements, the minor niceties and the points that could still be improved. If you are on the brink of deciding whether to make the change yourself, or looking for open source project management software, this may help you to make up your mind.
