Task and project management

Figure A

ProofHub provides a centralized platform for creating, organizing and managing projects. Its project management capabilities include:

  • Time tracking: This allows you to accurately track how much time each team member spends on their tasks, either manually or using timers. You can also add timesheets, set time estimates and create time reports.
  • Assignees: You can assign tasks to a particular team member based on their skill level.
  • Milestones: ProofHub allows you to monitor project progress as it moves through various stages of development.
  • Files and docs: Users can upload relevant project documents on the platform and share them with other team members for easy collaboration. You get 15 GB of storage with the Essential plan and up to 100 GB with the Ultimate Control plan.
  • Track version history: This feature allows you to track the progress of a project over time and check the changes made.
  • Dependencies: This feature lets teammates see the tasks they are supposed to start first and which tasks are dependent on the completion of others.

Additionally, you can set project start and due dates to help you keep up with deadlines; meanwhile, the tool also allows users to categorize projects by grouping multiple projects under one heading. If you have created your project on another platform, you can import those files and tasks to ProofHub in CSV format.

Project views

ProofHub project views.
Figure B

ProofHub allows teams to visualize their projects in various formats. The Gantt view visually represents project timelines, task dependencies and progress. With the Gantt view, you can highlight critical paths, make necessary adjustments, set constraints and monitor the progress of projects to ensure they are on track. The table view provides a structured and organized way to display information, making tracking and managing project details easier.

With ProofHub board view, you can create customizable workflows with kanban boards. Its drag-and-drop capability allows you to move tasks across the board freely to change their status. Its advanced filtering capability lets users filter tasks by stages, labels and due dates. ProofHub also has a calendar view, which allows you to view events, tasks and milestones.


ProofHub reports.
Figure C

ProofHub offers insights into project progress to help users evaluate project health, address bottlenecks and identify areas for improvement. It offers five types of reports, including:

  • All project reports: These provide extensive information about each project, including who the project manager is, the status and progress of the project and its due date.
  • Project reports: These reports offer insights into project progress, task completion rates and team performance.
  • Resource reports: Similar to project reports, resource reports provide information about specific team members and an overview of each individual’s work.
  • Custom reports: Users can generate custom reports to gain current project information such as tasks, milestones and time tracked.
  • Workload reports: These reports help users track each team member’s workload.


ProofHub collaboration.
Figure D

ProofHub promotes effective collaboration among team members. It offers file sharing, discussions, commenting, knowledge wikis, notifications, announcements and real-time chat to streamline communication and idea sharing. You can use @mentions to call the attention of team members to a project, start one-on-one or group chats and start the proofing process to get project feedback.

Admin permissions

Figure E

To ensure your team and its data are protected, Proofhub offers a variety of admin permissions. Admin controls allow you to decide a user’s access with custom roles and decide which outside users can collaborate as guests to the workspace.

Admins will also be able to organize teams by creating different groups and adding specific users to them. For safety, you can also go as far as to restrict access to approved IP addresses, so outsiders can’t access your data. User types in ProofHub include admins who can set roles, owners who can see all team projects and nominal users who can only view and access the projects they’re a part of.

ProofHub ease of use: 5/5

Overall, ProofHub is simple to get started with. They offer an array of features, but the setup is fairly smooth if paced. As soon as you start, it begins a built-in tutorial on how to use the user interface. The UI is sleek and modern, but not bare. It has a lot of elements, but it shows more as you hover while running fast and responsive.

Navigating between buttons and actions, and testing out work views was very intuitive. Creating projects and switching work views also proved to come naturally. They include more built-in tutorials for learning their Gantt charts, calendars, notes, file uploads and timesheets.

ProofHub customer service and support: 4.5/5

When it comes to customer service, there are limited direct support options and no dedicated support, like assigned customer service managers.

Help and support center

In the help center, you can find resources for getting started, FAQs, video tutorials and articles for using the software. Their user documentation covers all sorts of features like chat, reports, time management and work views.

Contact form

In the help center, those in the Essentials plan can use the email address available or submit a contact form to talk to the support team. Aside from that, there are only self-service options in the help center.

Priority support

Only the Ultimate plan has priority support. Not much is elaborated on how priority support works aside from the promise they will resolve your question.
