About

Swipes Workspace brings the pieces of team's work in one place. It's a beautiful app to help teams Plan projects, Discuss ideas and Take action on the priorities. It's that simple. No more 10s of apps to dig in, hundreds of open browser tabs and crazy stream of notifications to react on. Just the Workspace.

Thank you so much, Burak! It's a hard balance to hit. That's the 6 iteration of the workspace because we wanted to hit that exact sweet spot - easy to use, powerful at core.

Thank you, Pablo! This is warming our hearts!!!

I beta tested Swipes Workspace. The app went through several iterations, each one better than the last. The customer support from Team Swipes is amazing and they are constantly updating their app.

Pros:

Clean lines, simple but also super full-featured, constant updates, graphics make accomplishing tasks rewarding, and so much more!

Cons:

I know it's coming, but I can't wait to be able to drag n drop to reorder my Take Action items :)

THANK you, Steven! The drag & drop will come and we'll rework the whole section to make it more Swipes personal experience like. :)

CEO, Swipes
Steve you are the best! Really appreciate how engaged you always are. Hope the workspace can make the school a better place!

I forgot to mention something. One of the most beautiful aspects of Swipes Workspace is that it can be used just as easily and usefully as a stand-alone productivity tool as it can as a team productivity/communication tool. And no matter how hard I try, I just can't stop watching that video! :)

I was part of the beta testing for what seems like well over a year. Up until it changed so drastically to this current iteration, I was 100% on board. The UI/UX is best in class, but I was totally lost on the project management language being used. It really feels like it's trying too hard to be "different" and thereby sacrificing the ability for people used to working with project management tools/apps to quickly onboard this new way of looking at things.

If it were just as simple as creating projects with Tasks and sub-tasks, it would have been a no-brainer. For example:

- Project

-- Task

--- Sub-task

--- Sub-task

--- Sub-task

-- Task

-- Task

But instead what we're given are "Plan", "Goals", "Steps", "Milestones"... just feels both overly complex and linguistically unintuitive.

As I look at this new iteration, it seems that there is an attempt to help this language gap with the onboarding (visual guide).

It's still just too complicated, taking too many clicks to dig down into the tasks that need to be done today.

I'm also surprised to see there's no way to add dates or deadlines to items. Am I missing something?

I hate to be negative--especially on a piece of software that looks better than any other piece of software I've ever seen (and I don't say that lightly).

At the end of the day, the language choices just didn't make sense to me and I had to abandon it because trying to train myself and my team (US-based) to adjust to this different linguistic choices was too complicated.

Pros:

UI/UX is gorgeous, cross-platform support is great

Cons:

The language philosophy creates a barrier

Thanks for sharing feedback, Dustin! We dropped down the Milestones as you were saying and have reworked all sections to be action-oriented: In Plan - you plan the work ahead, in Take Action - you work on goals with your team, and in Discuss - you talk together. It's quite straight-forward but I know you had different expectations to the product from the start. Time is definitely an important element for the product and we will bring it in a meaningful way later on. For now, we will keep it simple with scheduling of goals for This Week or Later.

Hey Dustin, Thanks for your feedback! Your words actually inspired me to write an article on the topic why we chose Plan, Goals and Steps in our product. You can check it out here: http://swipesapp.com/blog/to-imp...

Been a beta user since August. Have used the original Swipes for a couple of years. The team did a great job in beta flushing out bugs and making the product very user friendly. We have about 15 on our team using. Slow for all to adapt. Several use it often - we are still working to make it a common platform.

Pros:

Elegant interface, great mix of notes, files, plans, tasks!

Cons:

The plans take up too much space on the view with the big circles. Make it a list with a different progress indicator.
