    This plugin has potential... It is the best plugin for one of my sites, but not all of them.

    Several improvements could benefit the project:

    1. Add a way to customize notices when they are sent when someone is assigned a task. Minimally add a link to task the email.
    2. Add a short code so that a set of tasks or milestones can be displayed publicly.

    Though this plugin does look and feel similar to BaseCamp, there is a difference. BaseCamp is an external system. And if a development team wants to have one location to develop - keeping project notes inside the project, then this is a great solution. BaseCamp cannot do that. So, I disagree with other reviewers that this is "morally" bad software for just coping a paid service...

    That said, I find that the above two issues along with some of the infrastructure issues
    (how taxonomies and Custom Post types are used and presented to other taxonomy plugins) as mentioned by tavolucas above are why I give this plugin 3 stars... fix those issues and I will change my rating.

    I totally agree with you Hugh.

    This plugin has great potential but I feel is not yet ready for primetime.

    However I do see them gaining momemtum if they at least make the 2 improvements you mentioned.

    1.Add a way to customize notices when they are sent when someone is assigned a task. Minimally add a link to task the email.

    2.Add a short code so that a set of tasks or milestones can be displayed publicly.

    Allowing the system to be seen on the frontend is a must! and it is also something very simple to do with a shortcode. I hope developer listens to this honest feedback.
