Simplified task management: Organize any project with the Tasks mini-app

Rock brings messaging and tasks together. Each space has its own Tasks mini-app to manage different types of projects or just to keep track of follow-ups from 1:1s.

From product development to marketing campaigns and recruiting with task management in Rock you can keep any project moving.

After completing or moving a task across on of the lists, the task automatically gets recreated for the next time.

Our team was able to quickly get started with tasks in Rock.

It’s so simple and straightforward to use that I don’t think we’ll be going back to just messaging anytime soon.

My clients are happy with it and the team is finally able to have one space for managing communications throughout a project.

I imported all my tasks from somewhere else within a few seconds and was able to get started almost immediately.

The My Tasks panel has also made it so much easier to keep up with work across projects.

You can collaborate on tasks with anyone in- and outside of your organization. This makes Rock a great place to combine communication and task management for activities that require the involvement of multiple parties.

Tasks can be used for a wide variety of projects. Teams use them for basically any project that can be separated into sub-activities. Thousands of people globally are using tasks to get work done in marketing, engineering, education, product development, recruiting and so much more!

You can import tasks from Jira, Asana and ClickUp to your different Rock spaces. This way you can keep all your current and past activities without losing project documentation.
