I used MS Project before and Gantt Project. And now I'm looking for free software. What I need is simply do the Gantt Chart, and link with resources. So that I can know which teammate is avialable or not.

however, one key feature I need is to have allow me to assign task on a person by hours, not by day. That's why I have to drop Gantt Project because it is by date.

also, it would be nice if I can have multiple project shows on the same sheet.

Too bad that I can't use MS Project. I don't mind if it is online or desktop, as long as it is quick and responsive and interactive. (I found most of the online one is not that interactive).

Would anyone please give me some suggestions? thanks. :)

Looked at OpenProj ?

I find that OpenProj is kinda buggy. I tried setting the start date but it always bounces back to current date. weird. – seatoskyhk Dec 9 '10 at 23:57
i restart OpenProj and now all work fine. :) i like it – seatoskyhk Dec 13 '10 at 18:50
The links seems to be dead and the site will be coming back soon. I assume that this openproj project on sourceforge is the same project?! The ProjectLibre may also be a fit; according to wikipedia it is a fork of OpenProj – threeFourOneSixOneThree Apr 23 '15 at 9:13

I would use Gantter's Google Docs add-on. A full demo is located at

From this screenshot, when zoomed-in you can track by the hour. The project is free, but hints at a cost after beta.

Based on your needs I would recommend you to try RationalPlan suite BUT it is NOT free. The Multi Project version will also give you the possibility to work with multiple projects.

Made it clear with "now I'm looking for free software". – Fergus Dec 11 '10 at 5:22

WORKetc is a suite of business management tools, but emphasizes project management and collaboration. The software covers everything from leads, sales automation, and contact organization, to invoices, projects, collaboration, support, and marketing. Because of this, managing projects becomes a lot simpler and faster.

Taking a gantt chart view of a project and its sub projects for example:

As you can see you can easily associate items together and manage packages of items rather than everything separately, and this can save a heck of a lot of time.
