Onepoint Project - Project Management software

I am a frequent user of project management software, and have previously been a fan of open source Open Workbench. Onepoint Project have an open source version of their software, which IMHO is the best open source project management I have used. Their site can be found at http://www.onepoint.at/

Onepoint is a java app, which raises some portability issues for the purists. However, it appears to be a great candidate for the PortableApps treatment. I am using Onepoint regularly from my USB stick with no issues. It appears to be very portable natively. The visual look and feel of this app is streets ahead of the other open source project managers - and the software is robust and very functional. This app is highly recommended as a "must try" for anyone interested in project management software. It can import MS Project files.

I like this software so much, that after using the open source version, I have purchased one of their non-free versions.

You could make it if you

You could make it if you like, there's plenty of help around the forums and IRC for making portableapps, but we cannot make and post it, since it's not open source. feel free to stop on the IRC if you need help, found at https://portableapps.com/support/chat

Lead, Follow, or get out of the way.

Open Source?

Thanks for the reply Alpha1. The Onepoint site has a link for a basic open source version of their software. It certainly looks like there is a suitable version (http://sourceforge.net/projects/opproject) that would be acceptable for a PortableApps treatment. I am happy to have a go at this one. If there is a problem with the open source licence for Openpoint, I will simply create a NSIS launcher. I have been a fan of PortableApps software for quite a while, but do not understand the nuances of open source software licences. Anyway, further advice on the licence would be great.

oh I'm sorry, i poked around

oh I'm sorry, i poked around a little bit but didn't see that at all. if it's open source, then by all means it can be made portable and posted here on our forums. You can do it yourself, or try to convince a dev to take it up.

Without going into detail open source basically allows us to do whatever we want with a program, while a closes source licece, can be very limiting in modifing the protgram to make it portable.

I Can Take It Up

I'm already working on one Java app, and I can work on this one if you'd like.

My Dev Tests: ~ KeePass Pro Portable (awaiting .NET directory) ~ FreeCol Portable (needs testers)

Anyone?

Is anyone interested in doing this or any other project management software? Had anther look at this software and was even more impressed than the first time. PA doesn't yet have anything in the project management section so would be a valuable addition.

Hi horusofoz. I'm also

Hi horusofoz. I'm also interested in other project management software. I have reviewed few of them and bump into pivotal tracker. You can view the rest of the competition here: http://alternativeto.net/software/pivotal-tracker/. One thing I love about Pivotal tracker is it can be used on smartphones.

Not into Pivotal Tracker any more.

I use and recommend Gantter.

It's truly free (as in free beer, web-based, reports it can import/export MS Project format (I haven't tried), integrates with Google Docs for online storage and keeps it simple and easy to use.

Try it and you will be impressed Smile

Importing MS Project Files?

Has anyone had success importing a MS Project .mpp file? I downloaded this software this morning and have not been able to open a project file. Looked on t Onepoint web site but nothing helpful there.

Thanks in advance.

Importing .mpp files into Onepoint Project

It took me awhile to figure it out - not exactly intuitive Wink

Under "PROJECTS" on the left, select "Overview"; should see "Root Project Portfolio". Hilite that, click "New Project" and give it a name.

Select the project just created, and click "Planning" on the left; should now see "Edit"..."Import", "Export"... at the top. Click "Import". Follow the prompts to select the .mpp file.
