AC is on the project management market for a long time, and their team has tremendous experience in building and improving project management tool.

Pros:

Sleek new look, old good features.

Cons:

Now when aesthetics are improved, all is peachy :)

AC keep project organized with clear focus on the end goal. Also it provides a clear picture of our work for a client at any point. Learning curve is less steep and non-technical personal can jump in to it with ease.

Pros:

Evolution in the right direction of already useful everyday tool

Cons:

Finding a fine balance between feature packed and seamless easy experience is not easy.

Thanks Ivan! 🙌

Clean and functional tool, that is pretty mature, with a great team behind it. :)

Pros:

The interface is great, easy to use, enables you to spend more time working on stuff that really matters instead of roaming the tool.

Cons:

Haven't noticed any bigger issues with the tool.

@vforvukovic thanks! glad you're liking it! 👊

Definitely a great product for marketing agencies. I'm only hoping they continue to move the product in the right direction!

Pros:

Loads of new features this past year Polished new interface with a great look & feel Very affordable compared to other PM apps

Cons:

Definitely looking forward to a versioning feature, but very happy overall.

Thanks, @bryan_miller2 Keep sending us your feedback 😃

Overall, a quality product with great support.

Pros:

New design is awesome, fixed up a lot of little issues that were sometimes driving me crazy. :) Task dependencies are a life saver!

Cons:

Reports do need a bit of love.

@mladen_lukic thanks for your feedback! We are polishing our report section right now, new stuff coming soon.

Definitely a good investment and that hasn't changed for little under 2 years now.

Pros:

Love what they did in the visual department since it was already a well rounded app.

Cons:

Would love it if it was a bit more white-label-friendly, otherwise there are no major issues.

In short, ActiveCollab incorporates project management, time tracking, and invoicing into a comprehensive Project Management Software.

Pros:

Order tasks into lists, granulate them with subtasks and organize your flow with task dependencies.

Cons:

Didn't find any cons for now.

I purchased the self-hosted version and have used it for the last year and a half.

Pros:

Almost everything I need in one place The new design looks nice Everything just works

Cons:

Self-hosted & upgrades expensive Only 1 year of service & upgrades with the self-hosted purchase The mobile app is terrible

Agreed with the Self Hosted is very expensive

Avoid ActiveCollab as if your life depends on it.

Pros:

None

Cons:

- Performance is VERY unreliable - Search suck - Invoicing & estimates suck - Support is terrible - Complicated

I've been using ActiveCollab for quite some time now, and it really helps me organize my work and projects. I love the fact that I don't need almost any other tool to run the daily stuff, since everything can be done through AC, from the beginning to the end of the project.

Pros:

Easy to use, great for working with others. Well-rounded for planning projects, delivering them and invoicing clients.

Cons:

Mobile app is very useful but needs some love

I would like to give praise to their support team, they have been very use-full and quick to response in every situation.

Pros:

Great app, using it daily and loving it. It is easy to get used to, and easy to use, great design and great for creating/sending reports.

Cons:

MacOS timer app can be a bit buggy, as the active collab app but web app seems to work great.

Give it a whirl - it has changed the way we do business.

Pros:

Easiest PM software we've ever used.

Cons:

The new design makes up for the previous challenges.

Very happy overall.

Pros:

- easy to use, well-suited for planning, track progress and invoicing - a couple of new features and polished interface updated this year

Cons:

- mobile app should be enhanced much - MacOS timer is buggy - integration with versioning systems (GitLab) will be great

Our team is using AC for almost two years.

Pros:

Nice new look, useful features for out-of-office teams, snappy performance

Cons:

Sometimes UI is lagging a bit, but its okay

I use this software for 5 years. Every client employee/subcontractor I worked with was very excited and jobs are really fast done with it.

Pros:

Selfhosted Elegant and easy to use Everything for project management under one hub Perfect ACL - Client and subcontractors management

Cons:

Selfhosted version is a little bit expensive No whitelable on selfhostet version No external extensions

Higly recommended

Pros:

Great tool to work projects in team Very easy to use and with clean design

Cons:

iOS app
