APRIL

Set Aside
With the Set Aside feature you can create a list of items you need to work on when you have time. Add any task, note or message to your Set Aside items by selecting the Set Aside icon which automatically adds them to the Set Aside panel.

Polls 📊
Get everyone’s opinion by creating a poll in a space. Add multiple options, allow people to vote anonymously, and quickly share this with everybody in a space. Use polls for anything from deciding on marketing taglines to figuring out what to do for next week’s happy hour.

Improved task filters 🌪️
In the Tasks mini-app you can now filter by assignee status so you can easily see which tasks are In Progress, Blocked or Completed. Combined with labels, assignees, task lists, and more you can now more easily see what’s going on with all your tasks.

Activity log and more visual tasks and notes mentions
We’ve added an Activity log to a space so you can easily see the list of tasks, notes, comments without these cluttering the main space. Instead of showing just a link when a task or note gets referenced -- tasks and notes now display the full title so it’s easier to see relevant information.

External Spaces 🌐
External spaces are now highlighted in Rock. These are spaces that include people that are not part of your organization. This quickly allows you to see which spaces have users outside your team so you can quickly determine what’s relevant to share and consider in each space. You can turn the external spaces badge on and off in your Account Settings.

Mobile updates 📱
Set Aside, polls, activity log, rich tasks and notes mentions, improved notifications, audio messages, and a ton more are now also available in the latest iOS and Android apps. On mobile we now also have Dark Mode which can be switched on/off through the side panel.

JANUARY-MARCH

Works with Zoom 👩‍💻
Connect your Zoom account to Rock and have your meetings a click away in every space. Easily set up a Zoom meeting when you need to discuss something quickly or set up a screen share to walk someone through the latest design mocks.

Asynchronous Audio Messages 📣
Sometimes its just easier to say what you mean. With audio messages in Rock you can now send a quick audio message when you're on your phone or on your computer.

Duplicate tasks 👯‍♂️
Save precious time by duplicating tasks when needed. Keep labels and task descriptions while moving the duplicated task to any space and list. Copy a task from one space to another so you don’t need to recreate tasks across multiple projects.  See how this works.

Space folders 📂
If you have lots of Rock spaces you can now organize them into folders, so you can keep your space list tidy 🧼. Create a folder for 1:1s, Marketing, or Product, and easily switch between different workstreams.


Guests in spaces 👀
Want to invite someone to a space but don’t want them to change tasks, notes or files? The new guest role limits ⛔️ the actions of users in your different spaces. This can be useful for spaces where you use Rock as an information board or for community purposes.

Now on iOS and Android
Mobile apps are now available in the App Store and on Google Play so you can pretty much use Rock from anywhere. Leave us a 5-star review if you like what you’re seeing 😀.  See how this works

Drive integration 🚘
Add any Google Drive folder to a space so everybody has access to every relevant file. No more digging through emails & messages to find that one file that got away.

Tasks mini-app improvements ⏩
The ☑️ Tasks mini-app is now a lot faster, the Board View handles better, and labels now make it easier to get everything organized.
