What are you using to manage projects?

Msg#: 4203211 posted 1:14 pm on Sep 17, 2010 (gmt 0)

OK, so like many others I'm using basecamp...yeah, it's great..but a few things bother me:

1. All the iphone apps blow goats(and/or haven't been updated in forever) and they don't have a mobile version of their site(If I'm wrong please tell me)

2. I don't feel like the interface is organized as well as it could be and there aren't any notifications for completed projects(If I'm wrong about the notifications let me know)

3. You can't post an attachment to a task...you have to post the title then post a comment to place an attachment. And on the flip side the one who is viewing the task is looking at a bunch of jumbled text if you post more than one sentence because there is no supported formatting for posting tasks.

Anyways, what are you guys using? I'm happy to pay for a good service.

I need a fantastic iphone app or mobile companion site and a service that provides better notifications and to do formatting support.

Thanks in advance!

I'm Using Zoho at the moment which seems to be much the same as just about every other CRM.. fine.

I've had a look at SalesForce, but again no push notification.

I really need a native iPhone app that syncs it's calendar. I’d of thought Google Calendar would be the perfect candidate for CRM’s to integrate with but the big G doesn’t have a native iPhone app!

It seems we’re not beyond the tedium of proprietary software willy waving just yet.

Because I work in a very code-centric role, my project management is done using a plain ol' bug&task tracker (Trac) integrated with source control (Subversion/SVN)

No native iPhone app, but the Trac interface is so simple it looks fine in Safari

PaulHudson, the lack of native iPhone google calendar app can be gotten around with the standard calendar app. Just follow [ideaexcursion.com...] and https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect once you have your google calendar set up and your gmail account set up on your iPhone's accounts page. Works a charm for me :)

Yes, thanks!

I found that somewhere else in this forum and had one of those, ‘does everyone else already know this’ moments. I spoke to another developer I work with and he gave me a sort of, ‘really, you’ve not done that yet’ look. ;-)

I’m using crm.zoho.com at the moment and then manually putting my reminders in Google Calendar. Works very well. Although I’m sure a native app from a CRM would clean up.
