    Project management web app?

    Hi - anyone know of a free project management web app?

    What I need is a system where my client can put in "tasks" that I can then give a time estimate on, the client then approves this task and it goes into a pool of live tasks - I can then mark them as complete and the client can confirm this. Each task can also be commented by me and the client.

    And it would be nice if we could get a "total" of time allocated to live tasks. And also so we can prioritise tasks.

    Any ideas?

    Not free, but the best one I've used:

    http://www.itsworkable.com/ My new favourite, a lot simpler than Basecamp.

    Check out pivotaltracker.com. It does exactly what your asking. You client writes in plain english features they'd like to have, you assign them point values and after enough completed tasks, it will give you an idea of how efficiently you're using your time.

    We've used basecamp, it can get chaotic and become a dumping ground for everything. You really need something that can scaffold your process.

    No software replaces a good project manager or producer armed with MS Project. Unfortunately, those are hard to come by.

    cheers for you suggestions on this guys. My current client is a nightmare - I'm having to project manage as well as dev/design/database etc.. and the project management is proving difficult. Constantly get "oh, can you just make it do this" and "how do I get it to do this? What do you mean it's not in the original spec"

    Now the clients getting annoyed at spiralling costs but if they keep chucking work my way, I'm going to keep charging them.

    At least using one of your suggestions will help them see what I'm working on and how long each of their "tasks" takes.

    Ah the joys of being a one man band...

    No wonder you can get all that gear.
