Over the years I have played around with many project management applications. I have settled in on using ActiveCollab to manage projects. Here’s how to use ActiveCollab to manage projects, and why I’ve chosen it.

  • ActiveCollab is drop dead easy to use.
  • ActiveCollab makes it drop dead easy to manage tasks with assignees, due dates, labels, and categories.
  • ActiveCollab makes it drop dead easy to filter information to get what you need quickly.
  • ActiveCollab is incredibly flexible
  • ActiveCollab has the best reporting out of any other app out there.

This is an update to a post I did earlier this year called, “HOW TO MANAGE PROJECTS WITH ACTIVECOLLAB”

I am going to show how to use ActiveCollab for with many tasks, and how easy it is to filter the information to get what you need quickly. Need an update from an assignee? All I have to do is comment on the task, and @mention them so they get notified.

You’ll see how to use ActiveCollab to manage a project that has a lot going on. You can filter the information in seconds flat to get at specifically what you need right now.

Flexibility

Using active collab to manage projects offers flexibility. I can easily change from a listview to a Kanban, or Gantt view, to make is drop dead easy to choose how you prefer to view the information. Everybody’s brain works differently, so this kind of flexibility makes it better for everyone who is involved in my projects.

Wait until you see how you can run reports and view all tasks across all projects, and pivot around the information with amazing ease. Want to see what tasks are late or due today, with the assignee alongside them? No problem. I’ll show you how to do that in this video.
