I’m spending a lot of time in my activeCollab installation these past weeks. ActiveCollab is an open source project management and collaboration script that had been described as a clone of the popular Basecamp service (but I think it’s much more than that).
I’m using the web-based script for several projects. I’ve also been using it to manage blog posts and articles for my publication that I’m working on. This makes sense as I have my activeCollab screen a third of the time I’m in front of the computer.
Before I stumbled on activeCollab, I managed my blog posts using Wridea. But a really good feature in activeCollab allows me to replicate this functionality in my installation.
ActiveCollab allows you to create forms that connect to your to-do list or messages.
I created a “Blog post” to-do list in activeCollab and then created a form that will add anything I enter into that to-do list. This mimics my workflow in Wridea and saves me a lot of clicks as the form is accessible in my project page for my blog.
Here’s how I did it:

He is also a mobile app and web developer and co-founded InnoPub Media with his wife Marlen.
