Project Management Software

User: braden - 29 December 2012 09:19

I hope if this resolves your query and meets out to what you had been looking for. I had been using Replicon's simple to use cloud based time management software -[url=showthumb][/url]
which is quick to implement and had nice reporting system.

I will suggest you to use proofhub ( I am playing around with it for the past 3 months and I am very happy with it. It helps me to manage a project from beginning to end.

I use proofhub (, a web based project management software. It has got many features like to-do list, timesheet, milestones, file section, proofing tool, etc. I use it as it is relatively easy to use and lighter on the pocket. There are other web based project mangement softwares like basecamp, zoho, asana, podio, etc. You can check them out and choose the one best suited to your needs.

In my view you should use a web based project management software like basecamp, zoho, asana, proofhub, podio. I have used some of these in past and currently I am using proofhub ( as it is user friendly and inexpensive.

Which project management software do you use, why, and which one would you recommend? I am looking for one, preferably free, but can't decide on which one to use.

Thanks! :)

Hi there, I use BamBam! project management tool for pros. It's great and free. BamBam is integrated with time tracking tool - Chime and with version control tool (Springloops) more you find on [url][/url]

We use this new tool called Fluxes. It's very simple to use and has all the features we need to run a successful project. It's free to use. So why not check it out. The tool is available at[url=showthumb][/url]

The best free project management software I have ever used is It's very simple to use, yet a powerful tool for managing daily tasks and team projects. Fluxes is installed with lots of useful features which is way better than many paid tools.

I used project management software in industry but I didn't use it for my PhD.
It seemed a bit unnecessary. I used a todo list in a notebook and that served me very well.
On a personal level I absolutely hate putting physical time deadlines on anything I do unless it is absolutely essential. It's a guaranteed way to stress myself out.

I wonder if StevenErrico and JonBHarris will have anything else to contribute on this forum. Maybe I'm pre-judging.
