Sep 21, 2016 Projectlibre was founded to provide a Cloud replacement of Microsoft Project and an open source replacement of Microsoft Project desktop. We have succeeded in that mission with over 4,300,000 desktop downloads but will soon also offer a revolutionary cloud solution, ProjectLibre Enterprise Cloud.

ProjectLibre is a free and open-sourceproject management software system intended ultimately as a standalone replacement for Microsoft Project. ProjectLibre is written in the Java programming language, and will thus theoretically run on any machine for which a fully functioning Java Virtual Machine exists. Currently, ProjectLibre is certified to run on Linux, MacOS and MS Windows. It is released under the Common Public Attribution License (CPAL) and qualifies as Free Software according to the Free Software Foundation.
Free and open-source software (FOSS) is software that can be classified as both free software and open-source software. That is, anyone is freely licensed to use, copy, study, and change the software in any way, and the source code is openly shared so that people are encouraged to voluntarily improve the design of the software. This is in contrast to proprietary software, where the software is under restrictive copyright licensing and the source code is usually hidden from the users.
Project management software (PMS) has the capacity to help plan, organize, and manage resource tools and develop resource estimates. Depending on the sophistication of the software, it can manage estimation and planning, scheduling, cost control and budget management, resource allocation, collaboration software, communication, decision-making, quality management and documentation or administration systems. Today, numerous PC and browser-based project management software and contract management software solutions exist, and are finding applications in almost every type of business.
Microsoft Project is a project management software product, developed and sold by Microsoft. It is designed to assist a project manager in developing a schedule, assigning resources to tasks, tracking progress, managing the budget, and analyzing workloads.
ProjectLibre's initial release was in August 2012. Currently hosted on the SourceForge open-source hosting service, it was selected as the Staff Choice Project of the Month for February 2016 by the SourceForge staff.
SourceForge is a web-based service that offers software developers a centralized online location to control and manage free and open-source software projects. It provides a source code repository, bug tracking, mirroring of downloads for load balancing, a wiki for documentation, developer and user mailing lists, user-support forums, user-written reviews and ratings, a news bulletin, micro-blog for publishing project updates, and other features.

Change your time zone
You can choose a Time zone in which you work and how the comments and changes will be saved.
Press the blue Save button will save your changes.
Change the order to display comments
You can select the order of the comments (for example of the comments for a work package which appear in the Activity tab). You can select the chronological or reverse chronological order to display the comments.
If you choose reverse chronological order you will have the latest comment on top in the Activity list.
Two-factor authentication (Premium feature)
In order to activate the two-factor authentication for your OpenProject installation, navigate to your My account and choose the Two-factor authentication in the menu.
In order to register a new device for two-factor authentication, lick the green button to add new 2FA device.
You can either use your mobile phone number to receive the second factor via SMS.
Or you can register to use an app-based authenticator, such as Google Authenticator or Authy.
Register your mobile phone number for delivery of OpenProject one-time passwords.
To register your phone number to receive a one time password via SMS, click on the Register device button under the Use your mobile phone section.
- Choose an identifier how you want your phone to be named.
- Enter your phone number in the following format.
Press the blue Continue button to confirm your device.
If you are unable to access your two-factor devices, you can use a backup code to regain access to your account. Use the grey button Generate backup codes to generate a new set of backup codes.
If you have created backup codes before, they will be invalidated and will no longer work.
Use your app-based authenticator
Register an application authenticator for use with OpenProject using the time-based one-time password authentication standard. Common examples are Google Authenticator or Authy.
Click the grey Register device button to register an authentication app. Open your app and follow the instructions to add a new application. The easiest way is to scan the barcode. Otherwise, you can register the application manually by entering the displayed details.
Click the blue Continue button to finish the registration.
To configure the email notifications which you will receive from the system, navigate to My account and choose Email notifications in the menu.
You can choose between several email notifications. Default: Send email notifications Only for things I watch or I’m involved in.
You can choose to receive emails for any events in certain projects or for no events at all.
The following options are available for the email notifications (ranging from receiving emails on a lot of events to receiving no emails at all):
- For any event on all my projects – When selecting this option you receive an email for any action in the projects you are a member of (independent of whether or not you are involved in this action). This can be useful for managers who want to always stay up to date of all developments without having to log into OpenProject. This setting will typically lead to receiving a lot of emails.
- For any event on the selected projects only – This option lets you choose the projects for which you receive all email updates. In addition, you receive email notifications from other projects about activities you watch or are involved in (e.g. when you are the author, assignee or responsible of a work package.). This is useful for project managers who need to be informed about any change in the project(s) they manage but who want to only receive email notifications from other projects if the activities directly affect them.
- Only for things I watch or I’m involved in – This is the default option for new users (unless configured differently in the administration (email notification settings)). Users with this setting receive emails for activities in which they are involved (e.g. if they watch an activity, are the author, assignee or responsible). This option is usually the best option since users only get email updates about activities in which they are involved therefore reducing the number of emails they receive.
- Only for things I am assigned to – With this email setting you only receive email updates of activities to which you are assigned (e.g. work packages). This is useful for users who want to only be notified via email if they are actively working on a task, not if they are responsible for or watching the activity.
- Only for things I am the owner of – When you select this setting you only receive email updates for activities which you created (e.g. work packages, wiki pages). This makes sense if you are not actively involved in a project but want to only be notified if your activities are updated.
- No event – With this setting you receive no emails at all. You need to log into OpenProject to verify the status of your tasks. Unless you check the status within OpenProject very frequently or are not actively involved in any project this setting is typically too restrictive.
By default you do not receive any email notifications about your own changes. If you want to receive emails for your own changes (e.g. to make sure you that emails for changes you made have been sent), activate the checkbox I want to be notified of changes that I make myself.
Set an Avatar
To change your profile picture in OpenProject you can set an Avatar in your My account settings. Navigate to Avatar in the menu.
OpenProject uses Gravatar as default profile image. It displays a preview of your Avatar.
Also, you can upload a Custom Avatar by choosing a Avatar to be uploaded from a file. Press the blue Update button to change your profile picture.
Note: The optimum size to upload a new profile picture is 128 by 128 pixel. Larger files will be cropped.
You can delete your own account in My account.
If you cannot see the entry Delete account in the My account side menu, make sure the option “Users allowed to delete their account” is activated in the administration.
To delete your account, select Delete account from the side menu and enter your login to confirm the deletion.
Important: Deleting a user account is permanent and cannot be reversed.
