    Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well 1) ActiveCollab works well for small teams specifically T&M teams.Its invoicing feature is unique & can make your life easy. 2) It is very easy to use & posses good range of filters like on the task list, we can drag/drop tasks, Filter by assignee's,
    tasks lists, due dates, or completed tasks. 3) It has some simple but awesome features like when you're in
    the middle of writing something i.e a comment on story and get interrupted,
    it retains what you wrote. 4) It allows you to tag team members in threads of comments to grab their attention, its really needed when teams are distributed. Thus helping team members to collaborate easily & stay on same page. 5) It integrates pretty well with other web apps like quickbooks , Slack, Trello, HubSpot, Zapier etc Scenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well 1) Tasks can not have multiple assignee's here so if two members are working on same task it did not allow you to reflect that. 2) Sorting capability is not their under invoicing 3) It did not work well for larger teams 4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

    Cons

    ActiveCollab

    • Does not maintain default categories for tasks
    • Makes information difficult to share with others not on AC
    • Relies on other people to track their time correctly in categories for estimates
    • Mobile app is very hard to use and not user-friendly if you are working with multiple projects

    • The import/export buttons are exactly the opposite of what you would expect. not intuitive and the logos for these should be swapped.
    • The software is hard to train users upon. New users require 3-6 months of use before getting proficient. I think this is because many of the best features are buried in menus, three clicks deep.
    • The claiming exports immediately default partial claim items to the user who claimed previously. You need to update your name every time you update a partial claim line item.
    • There are many add-ins that should just be included with InEight Standard, instead of having to install extras to make the software usable.

      Some features with InEight's TeamBinder are worthy of single use, however the review feature and subsequent revision and version numbering could be improved. We will be aiming to roll out the package to encompass our internal documentation in the near future and will be in a better position to judge the usability after that point in time.

      ActiveCollab

      We have not required support for ActiveCollab as it works pretty seamlessly. We didn't have any issues with using the platform or with any billing issues. The self-service aspect of the platform is robust and easy to navigate so we have not encountered any errors that required assistance from the support team.

      Support is active, responsive and always there for their customers. Although the first setting of the product is not that complicated, technical team is available to help if any issue detected and if any implementation guidance required. The support interaction with customers is excellent allowing the user to feel free asking anything regarding the InEight functionalities.

      Since the original inception, I have been required to overhaul the system so that it is more user friendly and combines both aspects of our business, documentation and drawings. Being able to control revision and version numbering has been a key struggle that only staff training has been able to mark this as complete.

      Alternatives Considered

      ActiveCollab

      ActiveCollab is easier to use and simpler in its setup. It has the right mix of features and simplicity. It's also project-oriented which is important for our workflow. Other tools are often too task-oriented, making it hard to track projects. Overall, ActiveCollab has a great mix of simplicity with good features.
