ActiveCollab

Scenarios where ActiveCollab works well1) 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 etcScenarios where ActiveCollab did not work well1) 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 invoicing3) It did not work well for larger teams4) Search option is not very detailed & you may end up wasting lot of time searching one particular bug or issue.

Very good for easy project management without too many details and administration work. In comparison to e.g. JIRA, it's much less complicated which can be a big advantage for e.g. a design team like mine but of course, it can also be a disadvantage for complex IT projects. This is why we're using both in our company.

Pros

  • Daily notifications to the mail about upcoming tasks and expired, if any.
  • Preparation of financial reports and tasks for specific projects. You can form for individual tasks, employees and other criteria.
  • The availability of the gantt chart greatly simplifies the process of building the project, as it is an effective tool that helps to see the order of tasks to be performed.

Cons

  • I would like to supplement the mobile application with the functionality that the service has in the desktop version, for more efficient work.
  • Sorting projects and tasks is not always convenient, I would like to customize it for myself.
Иван Шайхисламов profile photo
  • Combining projects into programmes and portfolios is possible, but not as easy.
  • Simultaneous editing as supported by many other products is not possible.
  • The synch functionality can be a bit buggy or at least lacks user-friendliness, making it possible for documents to come out of synch and into multiple copies.
  • The pricing model and the management of the user count is cumbersome. Which users can be deleted? The model is developed around organisations locking into set packages.

Alternatives Considered

We chose Active Collab overall because we liked its easy to use user interface, project management suite and agency/vendor/client interaction capabilities. We also chose it primarily because it was offered as a web-based platform that offered very clean and easy mobile access for our off-site users as well as clients and third-party vendors. Mavenlink and Basecamp, at the time, were more suited to specifically be used for project management on a more granular scale for project managers, not necessarily the whole team, including vendors and clients collaboration.

In caparison, Projectplace “Ticked all the boxes” for collaboration, task management, mobility and ease of use.

Return on Investment

  • Active Collab has helped us to move to a completely digital project management system, moving away from physical time sheets and assignments many years ago. Since then, the platform has grown very quickly and very adeptly, and that is why we continue to use it.
  • The Active Collab platform helps us with quick, easy access to our project management system, even for off-site users, vendors and clients.
  • Time tracking and profit analysis has been great to help us price new agency services and change requests.

  • Those outcomes have yet to be reached.
