OpenProject as Mantis alternative

Mantis is a popular open source web-based bug tracking system. It provides an easy way to create, track and resolve bugs and issues. Let’s take a look at why OpenProject is the best Mantis alternative.

OpenProject and Mantis both offer classical issue tracking features. However, OpenProject also allows release management through product roadmaps.

Additionally, with OpenProject communication is easy: You can organize meetings directly within OpenProject and manage forums.

Mantis is quite limited in its feature scope. It does not provide Gantt charts / timelines to facilitate and visualize a project’s status. It also does not contain other essential project management features, such as time and cost tracking or meeting management. Mantis also uses an outdated design and requires a lot of page reloads to create new tasks or make updates to existent ones.

If you look for an alternative to Mantis take a look at the following table and learn why OpenProject is the best Mantis alternative:
