Questions & answers

What is a free alternative to Trello?

Rock is a great free alternative to Trello! You get unlimited task boards for free instead of being limited to just 10. In addition to great task management functionality, you can also use messages, notes, files and meetings for free on Rock.

Why is Trello not good?

While there are some great features in Trello, it might not be the best fit for teams that are looking to combine task management with messages, notes, files and meetings. All-in-one tools like Rock allow teams to keep communications streamlined to one platform.

Can I really collaborate with unlimited people?

Yes, Rock allows you to work on tasks and send messages, files or notes with anyone, both in- and outside of your team. This way you’re not limited by limited guest numbers or paywalls while collaborating with your team.

How is Rock a Trello alternative for remote teams?

Rock offers functionality that is asynchronous by default. Focus on tasks, notes and files and meetings while switching to messages when really needed. Less notifications, and platform switching so you can focus on the work at hand.

Is importing to Rock from Trello free?

Yes, you can import as many project boards as you want into your Rock spaces. This way you don’t lose any tasks during your migration. Invite your team and continue work with newly added free functionality.

Is Rock a secure alternative to Trello?

We encrypt all communication between client software and our servers (“in transit”) with industry-standard TLSv1.2 and TLSv1.3 security protocols. The communication between our servers and other external systems is also TLSv1.3-encrypted.

What is a mini-app?

Mini-apps highlight different ways of communicating with your team on Rock. You can currently pick between Tasks, Notes, Files, Meetings, Topics or the Chat mini-app depending on the urgency and importance of your update.

Who is Rock made for?

Rock is made for teams that want to streamline their task management and messaging in one place. Instead of juggling multiple platforms, you get project management and team communication done in one place.

What makes Rock better than other tools?

Rock makes it easy to start collaborating with anyone in- and outside of your team. Once you create a new space you have full project management and communication functionality without limits. All for free.

How does pricing work for Rock?

The FREE version includes basic functionality in all mini-apps, unlimited invites, and as many spaces as you want. For advanced features or large team management functionality you can switch to the PRO or TEAMS plan.
