The ultimate "online business hub"?

Pros

Over the years, I have used several project management tools and team communication tools, and I have come across a couple of platforms that tried to combine the two...but without much success! It has always felt as if something was missing from either the project management side of things, the team communication side of things – or both. Until I came across Rock. The one thing that I consider my favorite aspect is the fact that you can use Rock to both organize your work (manage projects, assign tasks, take notes, etc.) but can communicate with every member of your team, both synchronously and asynchronously. This last point, in particular, is key for the fact quite many team communication tools only put emphasis on synchronous communication. However, especially in the cases of remote teams with members who are in different time zones, asynchronous communication is the way to go. That's why I appreciate about Rock, and I think this is something that makes it a potential online business hub for businesses of all kinds. And if this wasn't enough, there are the mini-apps and integrations with the likes of Google Drive and Zoom, which let you use Rock in combination with them.

Cons

If I had to mention something I'd like to be different in Rock are the available views. I think that being able to switch from one view to another is an excellent way to see a project from different perspectives – brid's eye view, zooming in on a specific part of the project, see important dates and deadlines in a calendar, etc. Rock does offer a few views, I think having additional ones could be more beneficial.

Reasons for switching to Rock

I was using Nifty for project management and team communication, and I was looking for a tool that had a more robust solution for the team communication side of things.

Response from Shiny

Thank you for the review Yann! We are looking into adding additional views to Rock, and you will probably see some new options appear within the next few months. In case you have any further feedback, you are always welcome to reach out to us through the "Rock Team" space on Rock!

Awesome for freelancers looking for an all-in-one app

As a freelancer I work on several projects at the same time with many different people and organization. I use Rock to organize every project in different space, inviting the people I work with. We share plan, tasks, files, and they can follow my workflow, which task is completed or not etc. The massive change compare to Trello and Slack I've been using is that we can discuss at the task level. This means if I'm working on a project with several tasks, we don't have to have endless emails discussing them one by one, the client can just add inputs or comment within the task.

Pros

Rock is really easy to use especially working with external organizations and clients as I can just invite them to a space, share documents, tasks and even set up video meetings. I like the fact that you can discuss within tasks, avoiding the back and forth between a project management software and a communication app.

Cons

Just love the product for now but looking for more integrations with other tools.

Reasons for choosing Rock

The ability to combine the communication and the project management with tasks integrated to the app, and also Zoom and Google Drive integration definitely set Rock apparts.

Reasons for switching to Rock

Slack is not an all-in-one app so even though I could integrate my Trello it was really difficult to work with all stakeholders of a project, share what I was doing etc. Also in terms of cost I have quite the same features as both app in the paid version but for free with Rock.

Response from Shiny

Glad to hear you love Rock! Thanks for your feedback. Any questions, just drop a message within the "Rock Team" space and our team will assist :)

Rock.so rocks!

I love it!! I love how easy it is to use and that they listen to us users.

Pros

I love that it replaces most of the things I use.

Cons

None - maybe except that it has yet to be integrated into my google calendar realtime/ automatically. Or maybe it does but I wasn't aware. I just have to update both my rock and google calendar manually.

Reasons for choosing Rock

It does the job using one software!
