Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Can I run OpenProject as a single user?

Our minimum plan is five users. Our pricing scheme covers three subscription options: Community ($0), Cloud (€4.95/member/month or approximately $5.60/member/month), and Enterprise (€5.95/member/month or approximately $6.73/member/month). We recommend to start the community version free of charge if the 5 user minimum is an issue.
