Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

A friend of mine works in a small team (5 people) and they don't have any application to keep track of who is working on what.

There are a lot of questions asked here about application for project management applications, and it's hard to tell if there is one that satisfies those requirements:

  • open-source
  • web-based
  • hierarchical to-do's (ie. sub-tasks)

    enter image description here

  • each user is allowed to create their own project

The goal is simply for everyone on the team (managers and employees) to have a rough idea about employees' workload. Nothing fancier.

Have a look at AgileFant. It is a bit fancy, based on the idea of SCRUM but easy to use.
