Open Source Collaboration Platform – TeamLab

TeamLab is a collaboration platform that is built with enterprises in mind but fits to any small-to-bigger teams too.

The platform enables users to create teams, manage projects with setting milestones and creating tasks which can be assigned per user.

It comes as 2 versions:

  • hosted (and free)
  • open source, to download on your infrastructure (and free)


By simply scheduling tasks and with the help of e-mail notifications, it is hard to miss a deadline and you always stay informed about the overall of a project.

Using a built-in IM, it is possible to communicate each other. Also, integrated blogging, forum and wiki capabilities makes sharing of information very easy.

TeamLab can also help the members of a team to keep up with the support for managing events, news, polls, photos and bookmarks.

    The concept is nice, but it uses Microsoft’s technologies… 🙁

    I find far more open and do the same. It has a less pretty interface though
    I use it on a daily basis with a team of 15 people.

    Umut, thanks for the TeamLab review!

    As a start-up company we use technologies in which we are proficient. I can agree that asp isn’t the best choice for OS project. But on the road map we have other technologies/platforms in mind. So, it’s just the beginning. We released our software only 2 month ago and of course we plan to build community for open-source software developers. Unfortunately we are limited in resources and were not able to release specs&guides along with the source code. So…any help is pretty welcome 😉

    What do you mean by saying “fengoffice is far more open”? First, look at their description of open source at Since when “open source”=”free software”? How can the true open-source software company write such inaccurate phrases… And second, it’s not a free software – it has plans.
    But as they say everyone has his own taste and you are free to choose from an array of available services. I’m really glad that fengoffice suits you. But why give negative review to TeamLab software even not trying it?
