A WordPress Project Management plugin. Project Management with WordPress has never been this easy!
But there isn't any great competition. But it seems to work well enough.
WP Project Manager is arguably one of the best plugins for WordPress when looking for something to handle an abundance of client data, while not wanting to pay the premium prices of some larger systems to do so.
With a "Basecamp" inspired UI you can create & manage powerful client areas and with a couple other nifty plugins you can create a nice looking client area with WP Project Manager functionality.
Some more features would be nice, like a Dropbox file sync for client files per project, but these are luxurious features that for an out of the box plugin for free, would be icing on the cake so overall, keep up the great work!
This is a great plugin, and who cares if this rips off basecamps ui....the only thing that matters is that it works for project management. Basecamp lacks a ton of needed project management features, but with this one, the capability allows us to build it even more.
Here are my feature requests, I beg you to implement them to be the perfect PM system!
1) As Berri222 said, please add user and project calendars. As we manage projects, we need to see overviews of what is coming up in order to determine timelines.
2) Timetracking. Many times we have hourly based projects with remote employees. Basecamp doesnt even have this feature. I would love to have an extra field by each task to input the time for the user. An even better timetracking system, would allow time to be automated, by allowing the user to "start work" on a task, and then "end work" on a task. Perhaps adding in alerts as well, so that the admin can enter "estimated times for each task". And then upon the user hitting that estimated time, it would alert them that they have to contact the manager to be able to insert more time.
3) Reporting. Allow managers and clients the ability to access reports on progress, employee times, and actual cost.
4) Employee hourly cost (goes with timetracking). This allows us to track how much our projects had cost us, and also where we can input the project budget. If we could determine the profit/losses of the project, we can all make more money!
Thats my 2 cents....really 1 and 2 are the ones I urgently want! Let me know if you are open to freelance too if you do not have any of these planned!
I have a complicated web development project underway and my own pile of sticky notes and papers were growing ever higher. I first tried the Project Tasks plugin and, after frustration with its clunky interface, searched for another tool. The only things that would make WP Project Manager better for me would be (1) the addition of a free-form "notepad" and (2) an "assign to" function from post/page editing screen (because sometimes the "task" is the page/post itself).
Nevertheless, a great tool!
This plugin looked great...until I installed it. The user has to be logged into the admin to use it? What's the point?
Too bad. This plugin shows so much promise. Users never showed up no matter what I did. Also, the settings and work flow are too clunky for this to be effective.
I'll keep checking back. Maybe this will be updated.
Thank you for making this pluging for WordPress. It works good for my job. Look forward to future updates too. (Calendar? print edition by task? by user? by due date? it will be a fantastic plugin)
You're right. If this had more controls then it would be pretty close to perfect for me.
This pluging works really well.
Just I request a calendar add on, like google calendar for linking to smartphones.
Excellent Project Management system.
