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.

This is a good thing for medium/large companies for inside the company and/or for interacting with remote employees/freelancers. As the program facilitates the interaction between employees and managers it speeds up the distribution of tasks and allows managers to identify possible problems on the fly. For indie developers - it's a little expensive.

  • We tested the free version of the program. It improved communication within the team.
  • Allowed to trace performance and time spent on tasks. Each team member was aware of the status of the tasks and could plan their work.
  • Simplified interaction with managers, as it could present the results in the form of Gantt charts.

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 program interface is overloaded. Especially when there is little time for a detailed description of the tasks.
  • I would like a faster way to publish the result at the completion of the task.
  • Projects and tasks are two different workspaces/pages. Personally, it would be more convenient to combine these things.

Support Rating

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.

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.

Trello was excellent, but we did not choose it because of the price and relatively positive feedback from employees using Orangescrum who wanted the easiest and fastest way to create reports so as not to be distracted from work (as a two-click report).

Return on Investment

ActiveCollab

  • Allows our team to stay organized and keep conversations on tasks.
  • The To-Do List email every morning helps me mentally prepare and know exactly what I should be doing as soon as I start work.
  • Powerful and useful integrations save lots of time (Google Drive, Slack, Dropbox, Zapier and more!).

  • It accelerated the work of the team, but the mastering of the program interface was slow.
  • The interface is not intuitive. It proved to be quite complicated.
  • For managers, the program has facilitated reporting and streamlined team tracking.
