Every journey starts with a group of people who believe they can do something different because it’s necessary. It has been already 4 years since we took that path where we wanted to build an integrated and collaborative workspace on top of G Suite. We went through failures along with victories, and we couldn’t be more blessed to do it with 160k users from everywhere, who have been supporting us since day one, to all of you, many thanks!
Today, our users have also shaped our new mission, “build the fastest and simplest experience ever made for remote teams collaboration”. It will be a whole new adventure to build together, and our team is determined to get it done. That’s why, we are introducing Workep v4, a new flexible, simple, and fast experience where we were focused on working better with less effort. Let’s take a quick overview of the main features.
We completely broke the old Workep menu and remade it, leaving only what is important to bring you an experience that is more fluid and easy to understand. You can navigate better between domains, teams, and projects; know the status of each team, and scroll through collapsible menus, or using shortcuts such as:
- Open and close the menu: Ctrl + Slash (/) or ⌘ + Slash (/)
- Move through your teams: Ctrl + 1, 2, 3 or ⌘ + 1,2,3
- Create a new project: Ctrl + P or ⌘ + P
We want the navigation between views to be more fluid and in Workep 4.0 you will have the possibility of having multiple List, Kanban or Gantt views with different filters to make it easier to track the activities of your team from different points of view. either by user, category, section, or milestone.
What creates for us?
- Milestones: you can use them to mark important events that occur during the progress of the project and they will help you set your progress by objectives.
- Group and filter tasks: segment by sections, categories, members and milestones, and filter according to your specific needs.
- Multiple views: create and save custom views of your project, with different layouts, tasks organization and filters so you can visualize it from multiple perspectives.
We changed the conversations experience for a real-time chat that will allow you to centralize the communications about your projects in only one page within Workep. You will also be able to reply to any message and start a thread right away. Share files, tag teammates and stay connected to your team.
What creates for us?
- Fast messaging: Let your team know what you are working on, or any feedback for new ideas and tasks’ bottlenecks.
- Threads: Reply and discuss within any message, ask questions, or share new ideas quickly.
- Mentions: You can tag your team members to notify them of your message and accelerate the communication.
Innovation is part of Workep's DNA and over time we continue to include functionalities and to rebuild others, to give our users everything they need to make their work fast, efficient, and effective.
