Reviews

Overall: As a freelancer I work on several projects at the same time with many different people and organization. I use Rock to organize every project in different space, inviting the people I work with. We share plan, tasks, files, and they can follow my workflow, which task is completed or not etc. The massive change compare to Trello and Slack I’ve been using is that we can discuss at the task level. This means if I’m working on a project with several tasks, we don’t have to have endless emails discussing them one by one, the client can just add inputs or comment within the task.
Pros: Rock is really easy to use especially working with external organizations and clients as I can just invite them to a space, share documents, tasks and even set up video meetings. I like the fact that you can discuss within tasks, avoiding the back and forth between a project management software and a communication app.
Cons: Just love the product for now but looking for more integrations with other tools.

What do you like best?
Rock is a great messaging tool for small businesses or startups that work a lot with freelancers. It mixes the chat features from the well-known instant messaging platforms, like Teams or Slack, with project management tools like Notion, Trello, or Asana. This allows to include freelancers or part-time participants in the pipeline with no hassle, communicating in an asynchronous way and being aware of what is done, what’s being done, and what should be tackle next.

What do you dislike?
The integration of both instant messaging and project management features is very smooth but with time there are new needs that aren’t fulfilled with Rock. I miss the integrations from Slack, for example. Those integrations are great to have all info in the same channel and solve most of the problems through one channel. I’m sure those integrations will be there sooner than later and after that Rock will be one of the most complete tools in this segment.

Pros: Over the years, I have used several project management tools and team communication tools, and I have come across a couple of platforms that tried to combine the two…but without much success! It has always felt as if something was missing from either the project management side of things, the team communication side of things – or both. Until I came across Rock. The one thing that I consider my favorite aspect is the fact that you can use Rock to both organize your work (manage projects, assign tasks, take notes, etc.) but can communicate with every member of your team, both synchronously and asynchronously. This last point, in particular, is key for the fact quite many team communication tools only put emphasis on synchronous communication. However, especially in the cases of remote teams with members who are in different time zones, asynchronous communication is the way to go. That’s why I appreciate about Rock, and I think this is something that makes it a potential online business hub for businesses of all kinds. And if this wasn’t enough, there are the mini-apps and integrations with the likes of Google Drive and Zoom, which let you use Rock in combination with them.
Cons: If I had to mention something I’d like to be different in Rock are the available views. I think that being able to switch from one view to another is an excellent way to see a project from different perspectives – brid’s eye view, zooming in on a specific part of the project, see important dates and deadlines in a calendar, etc. Rock does offer a few views, I think having additional ones could be more beneficial.
