I am looking for a a recommendation for a (preferably free) Project Management app in Salesforce.

I am interested in setting up a system that would allow users to track internal projects on Salesforce, log calls/emails/notes to the project, and generally increase collaboration. I think this would be similar to cases, except that it would not necessarily involve any client or external contact.

Anyone have any suggestions for apps I should look into?

Thanks!

  • Pls avoid questions which are discussion oriented. You would be downvoted. – Prady Aug 23 '12 at 6:53
  • I was actually hoping for a very short, concise answer. That being the name of a Project Management app. Discussion might only develop if the community engaged in the discussion, which could then be regulated by upvotes and downvotes. – jackerman09 Aug 27 '12 at 20:09

    I am not sure if this is the place for getting recommendations on products, this might actually get people to misuse to advertise their products. Not suggesting anyone did it here but there is a huge possibility of that.This should probably be a discussion point in Meta on allowing these kind of questions. My view is that the questions should be precise on problem you are facing and not be open ended question – Prady Aug 28 '12 at 6:10

If you are looking for free, why not build yourself? A lot of my clients use Milestones PM as a base and customize it to their needs. It wouldn't be hard to do it from scratch either. This way, you get exactly what you want and if it's great, you can share (or sell) it later!

  • Thanks, gonna check out Milestones PM in more detail and see about customizing it. – jackerman09 Aug 21 '12 at 22:31

Bracket Labs produces a project management app for SFDC: TaskRay. Well it's not free, we do offer a free trial, it's a huge productivity booster, with chatter built right in.

Milestones PM on the AppExchange is also popular, but has a less intuitive user interface. There is also a paid version: Milestones PM+

Milestones PM is definitely a good app. You may also love to have look at Do.Com

There are plenty on App Exchange You should take a look there and of-course Milestone PM is the best and free as provided by Force.com Labs.

There's also do.com. It's owned by Salesforce.com They acquired Manymoon.com a year or two ago and rebranded and touched it up. It's a separate app and a separate login from Salesforce. Currently there's virtually no integration with force.com. I imagine that will change in the future (safe harbor).

It has Chatter-like conversations and supports task management, uploads, and a lot of other features common to web-based project management tools. I've only noodled with it a bit but found it to be pretty user friendly and useful.

[edit 2 days later] There's a free app on the AppExchange that provides some info sharing between SFDC and do.com: http://appexchange.salesforce.com/listingDetail?listingId=a0N30000007rBeOEAU

A couple of folks mentioned Do.com. Unfortunately, on January 31, 2014, the Do.com service will be discontinued. Information can (for now) be found here: https://do.com/done
