for Code Quality

I'm using this plugin to manage my projects since a couple of years and it has been very stable

for Feature Availability

Good all around project management and consulting client portal tool.

Intuitive and feature rich.

One area that could use some work is the UI / UX for enhanced visual presentation. Would also like the option for an API that interfaces with Quickbooks Online for invoicing, so we can do all our accounting in one place,as this product has its own invoicing functionality. Please don't refer to Zapier, as the more 3rd parties a company has to go through the more problems to comply with the growing volume of data privacy laws out there. That is why we went with this product instead of one of the well known SaaS Project / Client Management tools.

Other than that, and all around good tool.

for Customer Support

Very useful plugin for delopment agencies, built in great development code and 5 stars form customer support very fast and with 1005 dedication.

for Flexibility

Can't edit any of the stying at all. Looks really old and not very up to date. Complicated system, not really user friendly. Can't even edit any of the preset pages to style them. Had to remove this due to the limitations and go for a php script instead

for Bugs

My bad for trying it. Riddled with bugs, for e.g. our locale is US, it doesn't like the dating format used here mm/dd/yyyy, when you assign start and end dates for projects it bugs out throws out errors start date has to be less than end date ..
Very limited features crappy interface. Their support isn't the best, My suggestion: Stay Away!

I am glad i didn't gt any customization done.

Gigantic waste of time!!!

for Feature Availability

This has been a fantastic addition to my website. It helps me stay organized and keep my clients updated on the progress of their projects, all in one convenient place. I also love that invoices can be associated with specific projects so I always know where each project stands as far as outstanding balances.

for Design Quality

I truly love this Plugin. From the moment I installed it, there was no doubt that a lot of thought and effort went into its development. I would have given it 5 stars if the login/registration process followed WordPress standards. The plugin uses the client's email address as the WordPress username. This causes integration issues with other plugins.

for Flexibility

I’ve been using Projectopia for around 3+ years, it was called “CQPIM” back when I purchased it. I like everything about the plugin especially its flexibility, you won’t get better value for money.

Thumbs UP from me..

for Bugs

We are using Projectopia on a major project, which turned out to be a major mistake. For example; a Milestone was created and the deadline had changed. But the program did not allow to change the dates, nor even delete the Milestone. In other words; the whole project with dozens of Tasks and Milestones becomes useless.
We’ve tried to see if there is a conflict with other Plug-Ins by deactivating all of them – with no results.
We also tried their customer service, which in all honesty was useless.
I have rarely given bad reviews because I always respect people’s effort in creating a product. The reason why I decided to do so is that Projectopedia has caused serious issues and hours of work, as we are now literally forced to switch to another system, which will take hours of additional work.
I really liked the whole concept of this project management system, as WP Plugin, sadly it turned into a big disappointment and added labor. In summary, I’ve spent money to add another big headache in a major project with dozens of moving parts.

It create user that can not be deleted. Not recommended

Hi,

There is absolutely no problem in deleting a PTO user or PTO client.

The following is a screen-cast of me deleting a PTO client on my staging website.

Your issue is most likely cause by a plugin conflict.

Thank you

for Design Quality

I love this plugin. the best. for a. website design company. My company is called ExploreMyPC. Check out the site.

for Customizability

so many times have i customized only too lose after not updating a auto save feature would be nice.

Also cant upload pictures for teammembers as main admin quite annoying.

Would also like to have a feature that you can set time required in milestone templates rather than set specific dates.

Author response

Hello

I'm afraid that with any changes in code, these are obviously going to be overwritten when the plugin is updated.

The user avatars can be managed by admin by using the free WP User Avatar plugin.

Milestone date ranges are coming in the next week :-)

for Customer Support

It is a great plugin with great customer support. I think the only thing that is missing in the plugin is the well-written documentation and also video tutorials.

for Documentation Quality

There are no documentation, too bad.

Author response

Hello again Jordi

If you look at our docs page you'll see that we are currently updating our docs after a major update and hope to be finished very soon. You knew this already and have been happy to just ask a question, so I'm wondering if this is just something to post after Envato removed your previous reviews because they were untruthful?

Anyway, we'll take the review on this occasion as you're absolutely correct, the documentation is not complete, even though again it's not exactly truthful as the docs are about 50% complete, so "no documentation" isn't true either.

We're pretty happy with the dozens and dozens of reviews of 5 stars from reasonable people who aren't on a crusade because we couldn't resolve a non-existent issue.

Have a great weekend!
