21 Best Free Project Management Software Solutions for 2018

Aaron Walker  |  June 13, 2018

As an incredibly disorganized person, I need as much help as I can to stay on track if I hope to meet task deadlines and accurately keep on top of project progress.

One way to do this is through free project management software, which can increase a person's efficiency and efficacy without running their wallets dry.

free-project-management-software

Still, not all project management solutions are the same. Some agile project management tools are perfect for developers and designers. Others are specifically project management tools for marketers. The right tool for you depends entirely on your team or department’s workflow and planning model.

Agile tools are great for embracing unique ideas, getting feedback and rapidly creating prototypes. Traditional tools cater to the waterfall methodology. They make it easy to outline clear timelines that are easy to track and manage and assist individuals with their time management. Small teams and individuals might not even need a fully fledged project management solution. Many get by just fine with simple Kanban boards or task management software solutions.

Free solutions are perfect trials to help users understand the way a project management solution complements your existing structures and SaaS-platforms, such as a company's CRM software. Companies or individuals considering new tools should try products out before purchasing them, and there are dozens of options that never require capital.

The best free project management software

The list we’ve outlined here includes any project management solution with some free offering. This does not include products that are free temporarily or offer free trials. They may only support one user or one project, but they’re truly free offerings. Scaling, though, will often require full investments.

These products alone have well over 4,000 validated user reviews on G2 Crowd and only represent a small portion of the 300-plus project management software offerings listed on our platform. The products are ranked by user satisfaction score and must have at least 10 reviews.

Asana is the most widely used product in our project management software category with more than 2,500 validated user reviews. Asana is a cloud-based project management tool that helps both team managers and team members map out every single step and detail of tasks and projects within an organization.

Asana allows for differing views of team members’ schedules, accommodating whichever workflow the individual member may prefer. The solution integrates with a ton of file sharing, team collaboration, time tracking, and knowledge management tools.

Teams can leverage Airtable’s myriad templates, which simplify tasks such as creating a content calendar, tracking project progress, launching products and planning for agile sprints.

Teamwork Projects is a project management app that can be accessed via mobile app and desktop browser. However, the solution does tout itself as a flexible tool that increases team members’ productivity because of the tool’s all-the-time accessibility. Teamwork Projects provides granular organization of both projects and tasks, an easy way to keep track of progress and milestones, and internal communication and file share, all of which combine to keep multiple team members accountable. Additionally, Teamwork Projects has a CRM-like functionality where companies can keep track of clients, partner companies and customers, so that teams can be transparent both internally and externally.

New users can try out Teamwork Projects during a free 30-day trial. However, a “free forever” plan also exists.

However, while the number of users with access to timesheets and admin is limited to one, and the number of active projects limited to five, the number of project collaborators is unlimited. The free plan also includes regular, free updates, as well as secure data protection.

Zenkit acknowledges that each and every project varies in project management need, so the company has strived to create the opposite of a one-size-fits-all solution. Zenkit providesa calendar, an inbox and Kanban boards, but it also provides customizable relational databases, enterprise search functionality and “formulas” which help team members analyze data across repositories and collections. Additionally, Zenkit integrates with Zapier and simplifies project transfer from both Trello and Wunderlist.

For individual users, Zenkit is free. In addition, Zenkit offers four pricing tiers: “Personal” (free), “Plus” ($9/month/user), “Business” ($29/month/user), and “Enterprise” (pricing TBD). The Personal plan is for small teams that have between 1–5 users. There is no limit on the number of collections, except that within a collection (simply a way to organize projects or tasks), only 2,000 items can be used, and there’s a maximum limit of 1 GB of attachment space.

MeisterTask is an intuitive project and task management tool that provides flexible project boards that adapts to teams’ unique workflows. The tool integrates with MindMeister, an online mind mapping application that helps users create visual project plans. MeisterTask provides “activity streams” for tasks, which help team members keep track of updates, progress and shared files per task. While the solution integrates with numerous third-party applications, MeisterTask also has an API that allows users to create their own integrations.

MeisterTask offers a “freemium” plan which, as the website explains it, fulfills “simple & fun task management” needs. In the free, basic plan, users have an unlimited number of projects, tasks and project members. Users can also create customizable dashboards and projects boards, and attach and share files that are smaller than 20 MB. Additionally, MeisterTask allows collaboration between free and paid accounts.

With Targetprocess, project managers and team members can see the “big picture” via the solution’s distraction-free overview and scalable hierarchy. Targetprocess specifically doesn’t utilize Gantt charts to display progress of projects. The solution encourages agile workflow processes, transparency through social media-esque notifications, and the identification of problems and management of risks. Targetprocess is available both as an on-premise and SaaS solution.

There are three Targetprocess plans: “Team”, “Company”, and “Enterprise.” The Team plan is free and hosted in the cloud, and does not limit the number of users who can have seats within the tool. However, what is limited is entities such as editing and managing cards, setting up custom fields in task management, creating tasks, and identifying bugs. On the free plan, organizations can have up to 1,000 entities.

onepoint PROJECTS is a web-based project portfolio management application that plays well with agile projects; it also integrates with Jira and Slack. With onepoint, team managers can leverage project pipelines, create dashboards to evaluate existing projects and portfolios, analyze resource allocation, utilize a drag-and-drop enabled Gantt chart, and create activity streams and project reports.

onepoint is free for single users and for teams made up of fewer than four users. Both the single user and small teams free plans would be deployed on-premises; the difference is that the former is locally installed and the latter is deployed on a group server. The higher-paid plans (enterprise server and enterprise cloud) are, respectively, on-premise and cloud-based, and provide free 30-day trials for potential users to try them out. The free versions are more pared down in functionality and feature set that the paid versions, but it makes sense, as smaller teams have different needs and requirements than enterprise ones.

Daylite is a CRM and lead management solution that also helps teams keep track of their projects. With Daylite, team managers and members can delegate tasks, build their own pipelines that track progress on a project, and keep an eye out on upcoming due dates. Daylite is built exclusively for Macs, iPhones and iPads, and it best benefits small organizations. Daylite is a contractless, pay-by-the-month solution, but offers discounts for those who commit for a year. Education and nonprofit organizations qualify for a 50 percent discount on the yearly plan.

Users can test out the Daylite waters with a free 30-day trial. That 30-day trial doesn’t come with any limits to the number of contacts, team members, projects and tasks. Additionally, Daylite does offer a limited free plan called Daylite Cloud Free — that comes with limits on storage, number of projects and opportunities, and contacts — but it requires the user to sign up for a paid Daylite Cloud plan first.

ZenHub eases the task of managing and tracking GitHub issues, and the solution is built specifically for developers. Developers benefit from ZenHub’s ability to track pain points in development work. With ZenHub, teams can create task boards that visualize workflows, efficiently plan sprints and milestones, and better predict project resources and plans based on actionable reports.

Both ZenHub’s business and enterprise plans offer free trials (14 days for the latter and 30 days for the former). However, a completely free plan does exist for public, personal and academic repositories. The pricing comes into play when teams need to use private repositories. If your organization is a nonprofit or you are a student, you can always qualify for a free license. Additionally, if your team has five or fewer users, ZenHub offers full access to its software’s features for free.

That compatibility helps companies of any size do away with dependence on a bloated, expensive and complicated project management architecture.

ProjectLibre’s open-source plan makes for even more affordable their cloud solution. ProjectLibre is compatible with Microsoft Project versions 2003, 2007 and 2010, which is helpful, as ProjectLibre is built to replace the costly enterprise licenses of Microsoft Project. With ProjectLibre, users can create and access Gantt charts, create network diagrams and charts, and keep a historical record of resources across the organization.
