A Free Open Source Desktop Project Management Program

Openproj allows you to create projects and break them up into steps and milestones and each may have its own set of details that allows you to delegate each millstone or step as tasks for teams.

A Common-Sense Design For Project Management

The reason why so many people still use Openproj even despite the fact that some people have to retrograde their new laptops by removing post 2012 updates is that the design is as intuitive as a mind map. The software allows you to create a series of timelines and merge them into one project. It allows you to check off tasks as they occur and see your overall progress as a result. Even people who have never heard of project management software will be able to look at an Openproj project and understand how the project works what tasks need doing next and where they fit into the overall scheme of things. Some users claim the software is not supported on their device in which case you will need to install a 64-bit version of Java 1.6.0_30 or use Windows backwards compatibility mode.

A Project Layout That Makes Sense

The Openproj is not simple by any means but it allows you to set out a project so that it is simple to understand and follow. There is a slew of tools to use and each tool requires an amount of learning and skill building but it is worth getting to know how the system works because you may produce very clear clean and efficient projects with this software.


  • Allows you to create very intuitive and self-explanatory projects
  • Plenty of tools make the program very flexible
  • It has different pages for timelines tasks delegating and so forth


  • You will have to invest hours into learning what each tool does
  • May have to run on with Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_02-b13)

    Even with the one time password it would not open up.
    I could not even get in to the system. There is a flaw in the system
    Cons: waste of time
