Worklight

A new way to manage your projects, perfect for remote teams

Worklight is a project management tool designed to help you work better. Remote teams used to battling timezones can benefit from the Today View, giving you a window into everyone's local time and progress into their work day. Update your status with what you're currently working on so everyone can keep track in real time - no more uncertainty. Project tasks can be managed on their Kanban Board with just a drag and drop, and Discussions keeps the conversation structured and preserved without having to scroll through endless chat histories.

Hi BetaList! My name's Ben, I'm the founder of Worklight. I've worked in remote teams for most of my career, but have always been frustrated by the project management tools out there. So I decided to build my own!

Thanks for checking us out and I'd be happy to answer any questions :)

Hey Ben! Looks awesome! I've just requested access :) My question is, why should I use Worklight, when I could use Trello? (Yes, I know Trello is now part of Atlassian; and I'm an Atlassian fan).

@gadgick Hey Nick, thanks for signing up. Trello is a great generic tool, I've been using it myself to manage my own projects. But it doesn't really know anything about your wider team, and it doesn't have any kind of persistent discussions for projects outside of task cards. With Worklight we're trying to do great task management as well as those two other things. The idea being, everything you need to know about a project lives in Worklight in a structured way, not just scattered through an endless Slack channel. And when you're working with other people who may not all be in the same location as you, it'll be really easy to keep tabs on who's working on what, and how far into their work day they are.

Hopefully it all makes sense when you get a chance to try it out! This was borne out of my own frustration trying to keep track of a project across multiple tools, so I'm hoping the solution resonates with other people who have felt that pain.

You know what Ben?
Add ability to #filter and add images to tasks and we'll sign up and even help you out with marketing your platform.
We are in love with it, but we need to see visuals in tasks. We're building products and text just doesn't cut it :(

Is this still being developed?

@zchsltmr Hi Zachari, it is indeed! In fact we just took part in a startup pitch competition last night. I know news has been quite quiet but we will have new developments to announce before the end of the year 😊

@BenKingNTU that’s awesome to hear. Can’t wait! I’ll be using it with two projects I have on the go at the moment. If you guys need anyone in digital marketing / growth hacking on board, let me know. Be willing to lend a helping hand!
