There was a problem, but the plugin’s team respond promptly. This plugin has a big potential to grow much further. Its advantage compared to other solutions: ability to customize fields (I only know this plugin who can do it) Easy to use. WordPress-based 9some people prefer this). Solve project management and employment management issues (they even have clients and documents features). Some room for improvements: Ability to edit old fields and set the layout. Simpler database scheme when storing the data Design and performance. ================================================= I am an active paid customer of this plugin. However, suddenly my active license is invalid, furthermore I cannot login to their website (reset password and contact is not even working). After so much data inserted to the database and still a long-paid license terms, I am really disappointed with this plugin.I will change my review if they fix their problem ASAP.

Just started to use this plugin. Everything straight forward. No chance for confusion. Well designed and thoughtfully arranged options. It will blow away big players of this type if developed to include more features like frontend dashboards, invoice generation or integrations etc. Great work guys. All the best for your success.

Because of its lightness and simplicity I use it as “Powerful Advanced Taxonomy Meta” — through TaxoPress i add project information to other plugins (eg Advanced Ads). Special thanks to the developers for an easy way to disable unnecessary modules (Leave and Reviews). It is a pity that there is no way to disable the Employee module.
