I'm hunting for a simple web app that maps tasks, people and time.

Let's say you have 3 large tasks (draw a logo, write documentation & build website) and two people (John & Jane). You know that these 3 tasks need to be completed next week. Let's say that you want John to work on "draw a logo" on monday and tuesday and Jane to work on "documentation" mon - wed. Then they both spend tue-fri on "build website".

What is this kind of app called? Is it HRM?

Emil, this feature is called "Resource Planning" or "Resource Forecasting".

My company's product, Roadmap, supports this - here's the info on this feature. We also integrate with Basecamp.

Project management software?

a simple web app that maps tasks, people and time.

You can try Redmine which has Gantt charts support.

Thanks but I'm not looking for project management software (The team is using Basecamp and it's lovely). I want a company wide view, not project specific. – Emil S. Apr 22 '11 at 10:35
