    I like the fact that the pricing model is not based on "per user" , but rather "# of projects". Also, I use their templates feature.

    Many features missing, many features need external plugins which would be hard to keep track of/etc.

  • No custom task status, tasks can't be moved between projects or task lists.
    Posted 2015-07-16 18:06:19 by AMarino
  • Gives a pretty complete overview, but nothing that shows 'at a glance' how the project is doing in terms of any timeline/etc.
    Posted 2015-07-16 17:59:42 by AMarino
  • Can make templates from an existing project, or from scratch

    Proofhub is a remarkable tool to plan, organize and deliver the work effectively. With this tool, I can easily share files, assign tasks, define responsibilities, set deadlines, hold discussions, create notes and keep track of everything in seconds. It is easy to use and does not add to the already built pressure on the team. The dashboard is so clean and organized, that help me to easily focus on my work and get the best done on time. Also the support team is always on their toes, listening to users queries and feedback. And the best thing is that with different kinds of plans available, there is something for everyone in Proofhub. Highly recommended!

    Thank you Adelle...Proofhub ( is actually really good, not only for timesheets but for complete project management.

    Nodoubt, Basecamp is good but it lacks important features like time tracking, private messages and integration with google. Have you tried proofhub? Features like time tracking, casper (hidden) mode, to-do's, discussions make it awesome. So, you don't miss anything.

    Asana is fantastic tool. But we will wait while they add time tracking in asana. For now we use excellent time tracking system in ProofHub (, its project management abilities are a bit simpler than in asana, but time tracking functionality is really good.

    Basecamp sets the standard for ease of use and also importantly in data sharing with other applications. It would even be better if they told developers when they change their API!
