Simple and powerful. Easily integrates into both WordPress Pages and BuddyPress groups. The best part is the support. The plugin owner responds within 24 hours or less and fixed a bug immediately. I recommend buying the plugin for full functionality.

All around no bugs which is a first in looking for a project management plugin. It works pretty well and makes sense, which is also a first. It’s not pretty compared to others, but it works, so that’s better, but it’s really not pretty. However, it’s VERY limited. The permissions are implicit which makes it easy to manage as you don’t have roles to deal with. But you have no ability to allow someone to see a whole project and all tasks in it. You can only assign a user to a project so they can see or edit the project itself (manager and co-worker, so that’s good), and then ALSO assign them to a task so they can see AND EDIT the task. In other words, you can’t have a project with open visibility to the team of all tasks and only have people edit assigned tasks. If tasks had a simple “viewable” checkbox, my hunt would be over. Unfortunately without that visibility this will not work for our needs.

I have started using this product and find it quite useful especially as it is affordable. It does have limitations in charting and reporting but as a tool for a project manager it is good.

Of all the project managers this one is by far the simplest yet very powerful and effective.
