Projecturf – Project Management, Extras Included

Projecturf is a project management application with all the bells and whistles. By packaging dozens of features up in one simple plan, the creators of Projecturf aim to make it easier for people to get their projects organized and help them stay on track. With a global dashboard that’s accessible from anywhere, along with time trackers, design presenters, and dozens of other innovative tools, there’s really no reason why freelancers or small business owners would have to go anywhere else for their project management needs.

One of the nicest things about Projecturf is that you don’t have to sign up for the tools you want to use on an individual basis—just select the plan that fits your usage needs and get started getting organized. Click “Add a New Project,” type in a name, and you’re ready to roll. Once you’ve grabbed a few colleagues from your address book and invited them to collaborate on a project, you can begin scheduling events, tracking your progress, and sharing files right from within the site. Like other comprehensive project management applications, Projecturf offers a number of helpful workplace features including event calendars, task managers, whiteboards, bug trackers, document sharing systems, and discussion tools to facilitate communication between colleagues and clients.

Among Projecturf’s latest developments are additional features that focus on increasing productivity. In Projecturf 2.0, users can reply to discussions via email, compare activities with reports and graphs, view previous versions of important files, archive old topics, and download events to iCal, Outlook and Google Calendar. For designers in particular, the application offers a number of useful tools that other project management apps haven’t yet adopted. Overall, Projecturf is a super-useful tool for people working in a wide variety of industries.

Practical Uses:

  • Keep your projects moving forward by working together with colleagues
  • Find out where all of your employees are at with their assigned tasks
  • Share text documents and other files with coworkers
  • View all of your assignments in one central place

Insider Tips:

  • View previous versions of a file that has been changed
  • Reply to discussion topics by email, rather than logging into the site
  • Use shortcuts to jump between projects
  • Time tracking feature won’t stop working if you leave the page or browser
  • Assign one task to multiple people

What we liked:

  • Templates help speed up the process of adding a new project
  • Projecturf will format your lists for easy printing
  • Events can be exported into whichever calendar system you prefer
  • Replies to your discussions will be routed to your email inbox

What we didn’t like:

  • Even the cheapest plan is still more expensive than some competing project managing applications

  1. Hi, this is Mike from Projecturf and I wanted to say thanks for the great review – we’re glad you like it! Also, we are going to be adding more pricing plans in the near future for those who need a different number of projects and we currently have an individual plan for $9.99 / month geared toward freelancers. Thanks!
