What is PHP task management?
In general, PHP is a scripting language originally designed for producing dynamic web pages, widely used to create web applications, and it can be embedded into HTML. PHP task management software is primarily a web based tool written in PHP. Usually such applications are used to assign and control tasks via Internet. The method is especially convenient for managing "virtual teams", because people from all over the world can access one system through the Web and collaborate at their tasks.

Advantages and disadvantages:
As it was mentioned, PHP task management systems primarily are web-based – this means these applications are accessed through the Internet and their interface can be seen and used only through a web-browser.

  • Questionable application security – the majority of PHP task management open source software is supported with different free plug ins which are created by volunteers and enthusiasts from the Web, on unpaid basis. Usually security and quality of these applications aren't guaranteed and properly examined, so qualities of such plug ins as well as of such PHP task management open source systems stay doubtful and you cannot say for sure if their program code doesn't include some malefic fragments or "bugs".
  • Hidden and recurring payments in spite of the fact that PHP task management open source software is positioned as free of charge – it may include lots of hidden payments.
