Latest news about Producteev and Trello:
10.01.17. Atlassian acquired Trello. Atlassian has acquired project management service Trello for $425 million. Just like with many of Atlassian’s other acquisitions, the company plans to keep both the Trello service and brand alive and current users shouldn’t see any immediate changes. With Trello, Atlassian is acquiring one of the fastest growing project management services. It now has about 19 million users. Trello brings more productivity to individual and team projects. It shows all of the projects from the entire team in a single glance. Assigning projects is easy, just put them in the assigned person’s or team’s list and when completed drag it to the completed list. Each “card” or task can be commented on and links can be added. Trello works across multiple devices and uploads files from Dropbox or Google Drive.
24.08.16. Trello makes its Power-Ups available to free users. Project management service Trello made its Power-Ups (third-party integrations) available to all of its users, including those who are on the service’s free tier. Until now, only paying users were able to use this feature, which includes integrations with products like SurveyMonkey, join.me, Github and Slack, among many others. Free users were restricted to using three very basic Power-Ups: Calendar for seeing Trello’s calendar view, Card Aging for slowly fading out cards as they age, and Voting for (you guessed it) adding a voting option to cards. Besides, Trello is launching integrations with Intercom, Github Enterprise and Screenful. Trello itself is also launching two new Power-Ups itself: custom fields for users who want to be able to create new data fields and visual cues for their cards, as well as a Card Repeater that allows you to set intervals for repeating tasks. With Card Repeater, you can set up Trello to automatically create copies of certain cards for recurring tasks like expense report due dates. This feature is currently only available as a public beta, though, and admins will have to request access to it.
26.01.16. Trello launched platform for developers. Project management tool Trello is opening its Power-Ups Platform to developers who want to integrate their services with Trello. Launch partners for Trello’s new developer platform include the likes of SurveyMonkey, Zendesk, join.me and Giphy. In total, Trello currently features about 22 add-ons in its directory. For Trello users, having access to these third-party tools directly inside the service means they won’t have to switch context quite as often to perform some routine tasks and will be able to automate more of their workflow inside of Trello. It’s worth noting that Trello has long had an API that gave developers access to some of Trello’s features from inside their own apps. With the new platform, though, developers can directly integrate certain features into the Trello user interface.
20.10.15. Project management service Trello adds tracking USPS, UPS, FedEx and others. Project management service Trello launched a new feature that brings shipping and tracking data from UPS, USPS, FedEx, OnTrac and LaserShip right into Trello cards. That’s a nifty little feature for existing Trello users, given that it now allows them to easily track their shipments in real time right from their project management tool. This means a small business could now use the service to easily track the progress of their shipments and as their status changes from in-transit to delivered, the card will automatically change colors from yellow to green (or to red when the shipment is delayed). Trello recently launched its revamped business offering, which includes a number of other third-party integrations, too. Like Atlassian, Trello is clearly looking to expand outside of the developer niche that first adopted the service.
17.09.15. Trello launched revamped business version. Project management service Trello launched a revamped version of its business offering that introduces new features like third-party integrations with tools like Slack, GitHub and Salesforce. These new integrations — called Power-Up by Trello — will make life quite a bit easier for Trello users going forward. While you have long been able to connect Slack and Trello, for example, the new integration now lets you tell Trello to remind you of a card on one of your Trello boards in a few hours and then Slack will pop up a reminder later in the day. The previous integration only allows you to get an update in Slack when there was basic activity on your Trello cards, lists and boards. Similarly, the GitHub integration now allows you to see relevant details from GitHub (commit messages, pull requests, etc.) right on a Trello card that’s updated in real time. Other supported services include Box, Google Drive, Google Hangouts, Dropbox, Twitter, Evernote, Salesforce, Mailchimp, Help Scout and appear.in.
01.08.15. Trello launched enterprise version with single sign-on support. Trello, the kanban-style project management app launched its enterprise service today. Trello already offered paid tiers for individuals and businesses, but enterprises obviously have slightly different requirements from startups and small teams that may or may not have gotten IT’s permission to use the service. So in addition to all the standard paid business features (permissions, membership control, etc.), the enterprise tier includes features like single sign-on support and intrusion detection. With the new single sign-on support, Trello users can integrate their existing Okta, OneLogin or other SAML-based login systems to use the service. The company’s regular business accounts are only integrated with Google Apps. In addition, the new paid tier includes phone and email support, as well as guaranteed file encryption at rest. Enterprise users will also get dedicated account managers.
19.09.14. Collaboration tool Trello hits 5 million users. Online project and task-management service Trello announced that it now has more than 5 million users. Functioning much like a visual to-do list, Trello shows what needs to be done, and what is happening at various stages of a project or assignment. The core Trello product is available for free, but it also offers Trello Gold as an option for users who want to take advantage of bigger file uploads, stickers, custom backgrounds and custom emoji support. There is also a Business Class offering for teams that want more granular control over logins, bulk-data exports and administrative-level controls. Still, most of the 5 million Trello users use the free version, and the company hasn't made a big push to convert users into paying customers.
2013. Task management app Producteev is now completely free. You probably remember that at the end of last year Jive acquired the online collaboration service Producteev. And since then Producteev has been quiet and the users didn't have the certainty about its future. But today we have the good news. Producteev will continue working, and even better, it becomes absolutely free (until now it was free only for up to 2 users in the workspace). What is the reason of such altruism? Ilan Adebassera, the founder of Producteev, who continues to manage the service at Jive, says that "tasks are the most basic, fundamental part of getting work done and it should be free (at least for the vendors that want to find the way into the enterprise)". And it's true. Look, Jive now is competing with Salesforce. And Salesforce has a similar service Do.com, and in it task and project management - are free features.
2013. Trello introduced Business Class version. Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. It's used by thousands businesses and to meet theit demand, Trello is launching the Business version, that enables that extra control of the collaboration space. It features all the power of a Trello organization plus extra features like Google Apps integration, extra administrative controls for boards and members, one-click bulk data export, and a new, view-only observer role. Business Class gives administrators more control over your organization. With Business Class, you can connect your Trello organization to your business’s Google Apps account. On the Members page, you’ll see who in your organization has an account. If they aren’t in the organization yet, you will be able to add them with a single click. Since there are no member limits, you never have to worry about paying more for each new member.
2012. Jive acquires Producteev and Meetings.io. How you should welcome new co-workers. If you would like to become the giant of collaboration market right now, you'll need to provide customers the tools for: social intranet, file sharing (ala Dropbox), task/project management, Email and video/web conferencing. Until now, Jive was arguably the best social intranet provider and somehow solved file sharing tasks via the close partnership with Box. However, it's time to move ahead and play catch up with Microsoft and Salesforce, that don't mind buying startups to close the gaps in their collaboration suites. Today Jive has announced about the acquisition of two very good startups - task management app Producteev and online meetings tool Meetings.io. Producteev has become popular due to its convenience and multiple platforms support. And Meetings.io works as a notepad for online meetings (very simple). To welcome the new staff, the guys from Jive created this very cute movie. It's another example of useful video for business.
2012. Producteev adds document collaboration feature. Online task-manager Producteev is recently experiencing very strong competition from Do.com and Asana. They are free (or almost free), while Producteev's free version is limited to only 2 users. However Producteev is still quite popular due to its usabilty, multiple platform support and reach feature set. Yesterday Producteev added one more feature that allows to collaborate on documents online. Now, if you attach a text document to task or comment, you can open this document right there in the online viewer and collaboratively annotate it and add comments to its text. It's a very convenient tool helping to discuss documents. True, you can't edit document right there. This feature is not developed by Producteev, but added thanks to the integration with another interesting service - Crocodoc.
2012. Producteev updates interface. Launches Windows and Mac apps. One of the best online task-managers Producteev has launched the new version. From the start Producteev positioned itself as a super-cross-platform service and promised to support all possible platforms. And the reality of our time is such that the desktop applications for Windows and Mac are coming last (see the screenshot below). Before they appeared, Producteev has come in the Web-interface, on iPhone, Android, Facebook, Outlook, GMail, Google Calendar. For Windows Phone and Blackberry the mobile Web client was created. As for the new version, it's biggest change is updated web interface. It now looks like Outlook - with three columns. Besides now you can add (to-do like) subtasks and use @ and # tags in task titles (like in Twitter) to quickly assign task-owners and tags. Besides, it's now easier to view tasks by specific user. Recall, Producteev offers the free 2-user version.
2011. Work gamification - the Next Big Thing. Do you want your company to use the latest, most effective business technologies? Or you are creating a business application and want to make your product the next big hit? Then you are probably watching the new IT trends. In recent years we saw such emerging trends as SaaS (software as a service), business virtualization (where staff can work remotely), the socialization of business apps, mobile access. What's next? Perhaps it will be the Gamification.
2011. Producteev now can sync with Google Tasks and MS Outlook. Last week Google released Google Tasks API and it was immediately utilized by the most innovative task-manager - Producteev. Recall Producteev allows to create and access tasks almost from any application and almost on any platform (via messengers, Email-clients, social networks, smartphones). Besides, the service provides very user-friendly interface and allows you to collaborate with your team. Earlier Producteev already released the GMail gadget, which lets you create a task from email. But it requires the browser plugin to install. The new Google Tasks sync feature allows you easily add tasks from GMail or create tasks from emails without installing any plug-ins. In addition, Producteev has finally released the plugin for MS Outlook, which allows you to synchronize Outlook tasks with Producteev online account and access them via a browser, smartphone, Mac-application and other channels. Synchronization works in the opposite direction as well.
2010. Producteev - really cross-platform task-manager. Formerly we called software "cross-platform" if it worked on Windows, Mac and Linux. Then it was thought that all Web services are cross-platform as they work in browser. But today the word "cross-platform" has a new meaning. Virtually all popular applications and Web services have become platforms themselves: Facebook, GMail, iPhone, Sharepoint ... For the modern business application Facebook or Outlook app is as important as Windows client. The task collaboration service Producteev want to use this shift. In addition to "traditional" web interface, it allows you to work with tasks in email, instant messengers, mobile devices and social networks (i.e. in those places where you mostly spend time).
