Open Source Project Management Part 2

In a previous post, I had written about needing to find a project management tool.

Really, though, what I want is integration.

The application workflow is really simple, actually:

  • Initialize the project requirements internally, based on my team's understanding of what we think the customer is asking for.
  • Review the task list and all dependencies with the customer in MS Project, or a tool (like those posted previously) that can export MS Project files.
  • Then, get all that now-approved info into some calendar tool, somehow, that we the project team all have access to. We don't all have to have the same *level* of access, mind you, just the ability get there somehow, easily.

And then I ran across this, which exports a MS Project file to Google Calendar. Now, I love the fact that this open-source tool does for me exactly what I need, and all I have to do to get my team on the calendar is send them the WebCal URL for the final calendar.
