No comments
In the last year, FreeTaskManager has grown beyond simple task management to a more comprehensive project management system. Hence, FreeTaskManager was no longer a suitable name for it. Starting March 1st, you will find all the user-friendly features you used to know as FreeTaskManager under a new name: AceProject.

Don’t worry about your account and login information: they will remain unaffected by the name change.

  • AceProject will let you log in to your account with your FreeTaskManager login name and password.
  • Free access will remain available as the Hosted BASIC package.

Three new features are now available on the FreeTaskManager: tab-based task editing, a complete statistics page for projects and new statistics and reports sections for administrators.

The Edit Task Information page is now divided in tabs to make browsing easier. With more and more information now available for each task, using tabs to go from basic information to file attachments is simpler.

The project statistics page also displays more information, providing a more detailed summary of your project. You can even see the list of tasks assigned to a specific user or task status, for example.

In the administration section, you can now see statistics for all projects: get an overview of activity in your account, including file attachment sizes and total task numbers, so you can be up-to-date on how close to your limitations you are. Read the Complete Post
