Overall Satisfaction with ActiveCollab

Our support team utilizes ActiveCollab to manage projects that are specific to their department. Overall, it's a fine enough system, but there are some quirks and challenges that need to be addressed before the system can be utilized fluently. We're still working through these challenges, but the system seems to be working as expected.
  • Simple project management
  • Organized task lists
  • Solid user management tools
  • Uninspired design
  • Very basic text editing features, minimal support for screenshots (you get 1 per task/message update)
  • It's allowed transparent communication between multiple team members
  • The archives keep track of team communications.
  • The system stays organized, if you can wrap your mind around their organization style.
We've never interacted with their customer support, so we have no frame of reference to give it a reliable review.
