    Great thank you for the good job :)

      Glad you like it!

    Very excited at this release. Freedcamp is very intuitive – actually it’s not just intuitive, it’s cleverly intuitive: and that’s huge. When it’s not obvious it’s very figure-out-able, some of the conventions I have found here (and nowhere else) are just fantastic.

    Now let’s get you guys a super WordPress theme to match this awesome product!! (email me)

      Thanks Rob!

      Our goal is to offer a more social aspect to project management. We would like to change the Company > You aspect, and focus on collaboration and sharing ideas.

      Thanks for the offer, but we are currently working on the design for a new WordPress theme.

    Love it — great job!

    Couple of things that would be awesome for a subsequent release :

    * Add some colors/skins options (a tad too white);
    * Add the ability to sort DISCUSSIONS topics by date of last post (i.e. last ones with activity at the top);
    * Add some sort of contextual tooltip/help giving basic directions.

    Keep up the great work =) Can’t wait to tackle my next school project using FC!

      Never mind “* Add the ability to sort DISCUSSIONS topics by date of last post (i.e. last ones with activity at the top);”, figured it out =/

      It could be more intuitive if I could do so by clicking at the column header.

    Great improvements! A few suggestions:
    1. Template Milestones: When setting milestone due date, it would be helpful to have an option to base the due dates off a final due date for a project. For instance, if my project is due on Dec 31st, then my milestones could be based off that date. So, Milestone 1 could be due on the Monday 16 weeks before Dec 31st, Milestone 2 could be due on the Wednesday 8 weeks before Dec 31st, etc. Freedcamp would still automatically calculate the due dates, but it acts more like a countdown towards a final due date. You would put project due date when you create the project, and the milestones would be automatically calculated.

    2. Could it be possible to nest to-dos under milestones? i.e. the milestone will be complete when all of the nested to-dos have been accomplished. Also, due dates would automatically be generated for tasks based on the milestone due date (see the countdown logic in suggestion #1 (i.e. task#1 is dues 1 week before Milestone #1 due date, which is due 16 weeks before the project due date).

    3. Based on suggestion #2, The current to-do tab could be renamed “Groups” for creating/editing the groups and individuals assigned to them. Both milestones and to-dos could be edited on one page (a combined milestone/todo tab), and you then select the group or individual who is responsible for the milestone/todo along with due dates, etc.

    Thanks!
    Steve O.

    […] Back in April I mentioned how useful we have found the free starter version of Freedcamp online project management software to be. Yesterday saw the launch of the improved Version 2. More details at http://blog.freedcamp.com/?p=55 […]

  7. Why says

    Why isn’t this downloadable as open source software I can install on my own server?

    • lt4ylor says

      Hi,

      We only offer a web based application at this time – no plans to offer a self-hosted solution, for now.

      Thanks.
