    Lets say you have a couple of people working for you doing back links and seo. Some writing articles, an ewhore email replyer and some designers and a coder.

    What would be the best way to manage them all?

    Im looking for something that they would log into , have groups, can chat with them, upload reports and messages, files, share documents etc etc.

    I want somemore more than just google docs or using msn or something. and things like basecamp or taskfreak seem too clumbersom. I want something like a virtual office or something....

    I don't mind if its a desktop software on an online script.

    ....If nothings out there it looks like I may have to make one, hopefully not though.

    So what you guys recommend or use?

    I know there's stuff out there because my GF works for an office and when she comes home she's in the system, it logs her hours and progress/what files are accessed/completed as well as has a built in IM client where everyone is tied into eachother and like shared folders for everyone and whatnot.

    Probably expensive software but I'm sure there's some torrents, just Google a bit.

    I can tell you like tomorrow or the next day, I'm not talking to her tonight.

    It is web based though I believe, its all run in IE, so you would install something on a server then give everyone accounts to login with their browser.

    yes, you can use Groove for ur need. it is a MS office tool like MS word or excel which included in MS office installation package. If u installed full MS office 2007 then it already there in ur computer. just checkout All programs--> MS office.

    if not u can download MS office from here:

    Use Custom install to select Groove only.

    I use an online app called Central Desktop, found at CentralDesktop(dot)com.

    It has a full-featured free trial for 30 days, after which the version I use runs $25 per month.

    You can share files and track their versions and revisions.

    You can have multiple 'workspaces' and multiple users - and set permissions and access accordingly...

    The whole setup is basically a big wiki, so you can add links, text, and photos to all the pages.

    There is Task tracking, which included Time tracking. It's not the most full-featured, but it works, and it is simple to use. There are some really annoying things about the task tracking, namely that you can't bulk import tasks - but you can create tasks (and task templates) and clone them.

    There is a Calendar feature, Milestone (Goal) tracking feature, and Voice/Screen conferencing functions...

    There are lot of features that it is lacking, but they've also got a lot of these features planned to be released soon.

    I use Central Desktop for file sharing, task and time tracking, scheduling and milestone tracking.

    I use DropBox (at GetDropBox dot com) for file syncing, and Pidgin for im...

    FYI - I don't have any experience with any others, but there are lots of online collaboration and project management tools, many of them are free or have free trials.... some are downright expensive:
