Pros

  • Creation of filters to better locate artifacts for daily use.

  • The card system of project place works really good. It's very easy to create new cards, assigning them to team members and linking them to projects.
  • The "plan" view is really helpful to keep track of your recent activities.
  • It's useful to connect activities with others to know if something has to be finished before another activity.

Cons

ActiveCollab

  • Notification emails would benefit from being able to set up schedules for reminders when tasks are due for completion.
  • A time tracking app for Linus would be a welcome addition.

Planview Projectplace

  • Platform still reliant on Adobe Flash, which is now considered to be almost a legacy tool and doesn't work well on certain common web browsers (Google Chrome).
  • A recent update to the platform has made certain features (ability to provide descriptions related to file versions) restricted to administrators, rather than being available to all users.
  • Desktop integration tool can occasionally have problems (but usually functions well).

Alternatives Considered

ActiveCollab

We chose Active Collab over Basecamp as the pricing model worked better for us. Basecamp, for us was a close second.

SharePoint is not a product you can use right from the start without heavy engineering, administration, and maintenance, done by expensive experts. Projectplace is much easier and faster to start with and has almost zero maintenance due to its cloud architecture.
