After using Redbooth off an on for a while, it seems like they have really been focusing on adding intuitive project management functionality lately. My team tried Basecamp and Asana and we were overwhelmed with the volume of email generated by status updates in those systems. We were also frustrated by the lack of any Gantt chart capability in those solutions-- when we plan events or product launches, we want to be able to visually see the project timeline and task dependencies. We decided to standardize on Redbooth once they added an integrated Gantt chart-- now we can easily switch between a Kanban task list and Gantt chart and everything stays in sync. Also, my team loves their new feature to assign tasks to multiple users which we use to track task approvals across multiple reviewers.
Well, I tried using teambox on one of the projects and none of my teammates bought into it. Maybe it was the corporate nature of the project, but I found that although I was willing to put the time into it to understand the quirky interface, most people in my team weren't. I'm glad I just used the free trial of it and didn't commit to it by purchasing it. Now I settled down with proofhub (www.proofhub.com). It is the easiest tool I have ever used + this tool contains both the free and paid package which is a bonus.
My company is very decentralized and we don't have a centralized IT collaboration system for projects that involve more than one of our silos. I have used basecamp in the past, but the issue I was always run into with any SaaS we have is remembering what their usernames and passwords are. As simple as and a shoulder shrug this issue may seem to be, it has almost becomes very frustrating trying to walk someone through reseting a password on these sites regardless that most ever site has the "I forgot my password link" I just signed up for teambox today and the ability to allow users to link their accounts to linkedin, facebook or twitter as a 3rd party login feature could improve the buy-in to this SaaS project system. That being said, if basecamp had the same 3rd party login, I would probably stay with them, there seems to be something a little less overwhelming with basecamp, I haven't really put my finger on it yet. What I also like about teambox so far too, is that you can have your master milestone (project list) and then have task under that milestone like you have in basecamp, but teambox goes one step further and allows you to not only attached additional docs and notes underneath a task, you can assign and schedule delivery dates to the comment underneath the task.
All these people who foolishly talk about Teambox being a drag because it is open source are so silly. Teambox is both an ONLINE software as a service HOSTED in the cloud as well as a downloadable Open Source offering. This gives you a CHOICE. Unlike, Rule, Timedoctor, proofhub or the other offering this means a HUGE community of developers are constantly making it tool the best our there.
Teambox offers the most adopted UI on the net and the coolest users.
Teamboxis a GREAT application. Using for my projects and in my company as well :D
I use Remember The Milk (RTM) as platform-transcending taskmanager, which is best software for me for this purpose. With it one can access from every computer and from every place on-line or with Windows mobile his tasks. One can also feed new duties by mailing of e-mails.
