Best free project planning software

Bitrix24 is a free project planning software with remarkably wide tool kit. Kanban, Gantt, calendars are available, so as team collaboration digital facilities and safe intranet space.

Bitrix24 is a platform with various instruments to manage your project and team. First of all, there are interactive Kanban boards and agile Gantt charts to manage and track project progress. Secondly, there are integrated calendars and scheduling to track deadlines. Plan first, then execute and implement. Create an unlimited number of tasks for your projects, choose responsible persons for each, supervisors, etc. Set deadlines. If a task occurs often, create a template, save time.

There is a neat and flexible system of access rights. You can have several teams working on different parts of the project or separate projects, and they might never know what others do. Bitrix24 as the best project planning software offers three general levels of privacy – personal, group and company-wide. Every user can use private Kanban boards or Gantt charts, create calendars, tasks and so on. Teams can share. Everyone in the company can orient on public project planning boards. 

As was said, Bitrix24 is the best project planning software. It comes with a free and safe intranet with collaboration and communication tools. Users can create groups for their projects and other activities. So they can actually work on the project and bring in all information about how the work is processing. With group posts, you get a newsfeed. Same as in any social network, users can leave comments, kudos, emojis, attach pictures and files. There are polls and announcements available. Bitrix24 comes with free HR and employee management tools as well.

But more important, our free project planning software allows you to communicate via chats, calls and video conferences. Groups up to 24 people can schedule events in calendars, discuss their projects, leave chat ‘footnotes’. Later they can be transformed into tasks with just a few clicks. Bitrix24 can also put emails to tasks. 

Another special thing is integration with CRM. You have a meeting with a client or working on a client’s project? Attach the client to a calendar event or that task. Simple as that, Bitrix24 can help with that type of project planning. Some commercial project planning software can’t manage what we offer for free. 

Try it yourself with a forever free plan.
