CodevTT uses MantisBT as task manager.
Mantis is a powerfull and highly configurable task manager. If you already use it, don’t change your settings and habbits: CodevTT is non-intrusive and won’t alter your mantis data.
Planning & Gantt
Realtime estimation of delivery dates & deadlines alerts.
The assigned tasks planning is an inovative way to see if you’ll meet your deadlines. The gantt chart is automaticaly updated and gives you an estimation of your delivery dates.
CodevTT provides a very simple and effective timesheet.
Select the mantis task, setting elapsed time & backlog is all you need to do: Timesheets are the only input, everything else can be retrieved from the Mantis database.
keep track of your customer contracts
The contract view will provide some specific indicators & features (including a WBS), that will help you to generate precise reports for your customers.
Follow your project progress with an amazing precision.
% of Progress, Initial Load, Reestimated Load, Elapsed time, Backlog and Drift are the basic indicators that will be displayed for tasks, projects, contracts, teams, etc. Many filters are available. Indicators are implemented as plugins, so that you can adapt CodevTT to your specific needs.
Team activity & Statistics
Who did what, when ?
How many days must be charged to your custommer ? Set a time period, check the activity per task, user, project, team, etc.
Statistics on short-medium-long term will help to take the right decisions to increase the team’s efficiency and productivity.
Yet another project management software?
There are indeed many other solutions in project management, both in the opensource world as in proprietary softwares. Most of them are designed for managers, while developers have their own task management tools. There are finally very few solutions that make the bridge between the two worlds. The Manager must go fishing for information and feed the data to his management tools manualy. This is daunting and tedious, thus, data is not frequently updated. In addition, approximations are made during the data input which makes it difficult to assess the margin of error (you’d be surprised!).
Other open source tools are positioned in this market. They are able to manage tasks, do basic timetracking and muster progress indicators, yet neither provide a real timesheet to enter the complete week activity and evaluate the information. So there is a need for a tool that can be used by developers on a daily basis to transmit the information to the manager, and enable precise project follow-up in realtime.
