Announcing Basic and Premium Memberships
Posted by Matt Rajkowski on November 22, 2013 3:30 PM EST
ConnectElements is rolling out its premium subscription plan starting today. First, I want to say thanks to all those who have created projects on ConnectElements – all those existing project owners will receive a free premium upgrade for one year! If we missed you, just let us know. While we always advertised ConnectElements as charging a fee, we’ve never once done so until now.
Here’s the details:
Anyone can sign up for ConnectElements.com for free and start using the basic collaboration plan. Later, when you need more groups and projects, you can upgrade your account to a paid plan. Regardless of the plan you choose, you’ll also get access to your groups and projects using our upcoming mobile app.
- Basic membership is free and lets you start collaboration groups and participate in any number of projects. Groups are enabled with activity streams, blogs, wikis, photos, calendars and more. You can be invited to projects, though you can’t create projects.
- Premium membership additionally lets you start unlimited projects. Projects are fully enabled with group collaboration features and project management features like deliverables, tasks and issue tracking. As a project manager you invite others to freely participate in your projects and transfer control of your projects to other subscribers. Your projects switch to readonly without a premium membership.
As a special offer, plans are cheap – a premium membership is just $5 per month. The first time you try and create a project, you’ll be asked to signup.
You can see a comparison of the plans for more information.
We hope you enjoy the work we’ve put into ConnectElements over the last few years and we think you’ll like the new mobile app when it becomes available.
