Projectfork is a suite of Project Management components & extensions which are fully configurable to meet your business needs. Projectfork is widely used by small businesses, governmental institutions, political parties and non-profit organizations (including Joomla).

Intelligent Design
Projectfork consists of many extensions working together; but the streamlined interface will make you feel right at home as if you're using a regular, single component. Installing and uninstalling Projectfork is as simple as with any extension: A single package to install, and a single extension to remove from your site.

User Experience First
Projectfork looks and behaves like your average Joomla 3 extension for the most part so you can it pick up naturally. If you ever get stuck, we provide plenty of comprehensible documentation on our website.

Developer Friendly
Projectfork uses a Joomla-native code approach wherever possible and is written "by the book" and best code practices. There is no custom theme engine, no Zend or other framework - just pure Joomla MVC architecture. Looking to hire a developer to make some modifications? No need to find a "Projectfork specialist"!

I have been using Projectfork for quite a long time and I must say that even at the early stage it was extremely powerful, providing so many options you could use it for totally different functions.

With version 4 the developers took advantage of the new users ACL system in Joomla making it really simple to set private repositories and forums. The look and feel is great.

I choosed the Pro subscription because:

1,. Projectfork is a super complex extension, easy to use, but difficult to develop: Tobias and his team deserve the money.

2.- PF has a few templates, some mods and plugins that are very useful only available to subscribers.

3.- PF makes Joomla a fantastic platform thanks to extensions like this. I haven't found anything as useful on Wordpress or Drupal. I want them to keep the hard work.

Gantt charts, specific components for designers, CB integration...

Just give it a try and you won't regret it.

We have used Projectfork from some of the first versions, which were quite complex to configure and the user interface and functionality were not always intuitive to understand especially for non-technical people which we worked together with on several projects. Since then things have changes a lot -Projectfork version 4.x.x is a totally revamp, and it is now a very functional project management suite.

Upgrading to the Pro version turn Projectfork into a professional online project management system which a great look and feel provided by the Pro templates.

We use it on our intranet and soon will we use it on our new media site and our new non-profit web site as well.

I highly recommend Projectfork, and I am grateful for the great support we have had.

Tobias, Kyle and your team, well done! We are looking forward to the future versions.

I am working now some Month with the system and it is great. A lot of possiblities and easy to learn.
At some points the usability can be better, but the guys are working on it.
We manage about 15 projects with over 100 tasks for 3 people who work on it.
Give it a try if you want to organize your projects online for working together.

This extension is very good for small company/team, we replaced a SAAS project management tool with this extension, having it fully integrated into our company website is an advantage.

Good option for project management but it needs more improvement in the user experience side and the structure and how the things are organized, hope that it will be just one component not multiple separate components.

I tried PROJECTFORK and unfortunately it was not for me so I uninstalled it and Guess it simple broke my site.
All my plugins are Unpublished.

Sorry! Developer I truly understand you kept lot of effort in making the extension sharing it with us for free but there is no point it makes more mess than simplifying problems.

Lucky me! I got backup of 4months work.

I rarely make a bad review and I did like PF 3.0 a lot more than PF 4.0 due to more flexibility. I will review PF 4.0 in following title:

Permissions:
PF 4.0 has been divided to independent subcomponents such as Projects, Milestones, Tasks, etc...
Permissions at each subcomponent is defined separately and independently from each other, this is not good especially when it comes to relations of whole project permissions related to other subcomponents (If Registered users have permissions of Create and Edit Own, then if someone creates a Project, then any other Registered user can add Milestones, Tasks and interfere with everything within that project, in other words you can not create a simple Project Management service unless you manually defined details of permissions for every project).

Join Request and Add User:
Again this was a great option PF 3.0, totally missing in PF 4.0. You can add Users if you have full permissions to Joomla users (even this part is buggy at the moment). Now Joint request feature.

Bugs mainly permissions based:
There some Ajax selection of users or tasks, etc which create browser error in wrong permissions, Seeing users in Add User to project for example needs admin permissions to operate which is not logical, most of the sites are like a community and people have usernames (not names) so there is no breach of privacy if you could see users list and add the friends username to project.

In Brief, Project Fork 3.0 which was very community minded has been turned to more commercial form where can be used only in companies where every permission has to be set and controlled.

At the end, I don't mind bugs and issues and even don't mind to pay for Pro version but extension lacks also support, only recently I got a bit of respond to my entry to forum.

"...you can not create a simple Project Management service"
- Yes, it is primarily meant to run in a private environment, and is not designed to be used as a public service. Clearly you had different expectations. But We have stated many times that Projectfork 4 would be nothing like Projectfork 3.

"Bugs mainly permissions based"
- Based on your date of review, I assume you've used Projectfork 4.2 beta 2. So those kind of things are to be expected when using a beta.

I really love the new Projectfork extention. It really change the origional design to the Bootstrap design in which I really really like. And it has almost everything I need.

But one Con I like to put out is that, there is NO custom fields! Most of every project has got to have custom fields (like dropdowns, lists, radio buttons, etc). For example, If one project needs a custom field (like what choices you have), I would need a custom field for that choice. Hope to add that feature in a future version, I be a lot happier.

I installed and used the non commercial version for several months and liked it enough to purchase the pro version. As some users have pointed out, the ACL takes awhile to catch on as how to implement so that some project are more open to users than others. Once mastered it is very powerful, just not easy to learn. The rest of the component is awesome, the reason for the 5 star rating. Everything else works so easy and is so logical that it more than makes up for the difficult ACL. I've used commercial websites paying monthly fees, dedicated systems in-house and though many had more features, non were as easy to use. And I've found if it isn't easy to use, it does't get used. ProjectFork really made a huge leap once I paid for the pro version. The template and gnat charts were worth the price of admission. The template made specially for this extension immediately made the layout and presentation far better than using any other template. I see this as a positive, others may see it as a negative if they are trying to integrate with another template. The template provided with the pro version turns it into looking like a high end dedicated project management system. Not just a Joomla extension. 100% bug free for the first three months of use. I'm not sure what other users are running into reporting bugs, maybe a different version or conflicts with other extensions, not sure. But my setup runs flawless and we use the file repository way more than I envisioned we would. Great product.

I installed the component and got it working immediately. After a few hours of use, though, I started noticing bugs popping up with the file manager portion of the component. I researched the issue on the author's website and saw others had similar issues. Despite many people having this problem, the author has not issued a statement or provided a fix. I'm glad I did not buy the pro version

I have been looking both open source and payment options and Im happy that finally I found this one.

Easy use, works out of the box, and the non-commercial version competes without doubt with any commercial version I could found. Thanks for the great extension!

I didn't like the view of version 3 but I just installed the new 4.0 version on my main site to figure out what to use for my IT Business ticket system for just the IT Techs to use to keep track of projects and basic computer repairs and this appears to be just AMAZING!!

Probably the best solution for project managing inside joomla, it required a bit of effort to integrate but it's worth it!

I've been using the free version of Projectfork for a few months now, and it's by far the best free project management tool I've ever used. The free version is already a lot better than many other commercial solutions, and there are several extension that one can buy if needed.

I have been using this tool both for commercial and private projects. I have also got very positive feedback from one of my customers (with lots of experience from previous projects with other developers) who really appreciate how they are involved in the development and are able to follow dev progress and give comments.

The only thing that I've been missing is task dependency. But for a free tool, it's just excellent!

Tobias and team, well done! There simply is no alternative that comes close to ProjectFork.

The core extension is free, what were they thinking? Free? Open Source project management doesn't get any better than that. In fact I used to be 'afraid' of project management but not any more.

It just works - installed without issue, configured in just 10 minutes, integrated into my site with Registered users in 5 minutes.

The user interface is well thought out and constructed it is logical in its simplicity.

On my site with the template I am using ProjectFork looks great with no tweaks required.

Highly recommended to anyone who is thinking of using or providing project management tools to their Joomla! site.

Thank you!

Love this extension.

Before we started using this extension, keeping track of projects and details was a nightmare.

With this extension keeping track of every detail and due dates is amazingly easy.

My only complaint about this is this the swarm of email notifications, which is a good thing, but it is easy to lose track of emails with so many coming in. I wish you could filter emails so the person who edits/creates/comments doesn't get an email about their own update.

Highly recommend!
