The latest online project management site to cross my radar is LessProjects, from the folks behind the LessAccounting small business accounting software. This one will be of interest mostly to software developers, particularly those using an agile process, because it focuses on iterations and spec items rather than simply tasks. LessProjects is visually attractive and features some innovative display – most notably the status display, where you move specs between stages (“Not Started”, “In QA”, “Completed” and so on) simply by drag and drop.
Other interesting features here include leveraging Google accounts rather than OpenID (though they do prompt for your Google password) and easy movement of specs from one iteration to another. If you’re running a software team and looking for a lightweight tool to match a lightweight process, this free one is worth considering.
