Overview – What is Groupiful?
Groupiful is a project management web application that keeps you and your team organized so you can spend your time on work that matters. Groupiful provides teams with the tools they need to stay on track and get things done. Teams can have discussions, upload files, manage tasks, schedule events and create notes.
Groupiful was designed to provide three key solutions to inefficiencies inherent in project management:
1. Keep all of your project’s information in one place
Projectsare made up of different types of information which are typically stored in different places. Events are stored in a calendar, documents shared through email or a cloud storage provider, notes are saved in a notebook or app, discussions take place through email and tasks are a free for all.
Groupiful provides you with a single place to store all of your project’s information. You can view a project’s tasks, discussions, files, events and notes from a single page.
2. Collaborate with team members
Sharing information with team members can be difficult. A project’s information can quickly become useless when it is dispersed amongst several team members (each with different places to store different types of information)
Groupiful allows you to add team members to your project. You give them roles to set whether they can add or view information. Now, you are your team members has a shared place to view and store all of your project’s information.
3. Manage all of your projects
Unfortunately, none of us have the luxury of working on one project at a time. Groupiful helps you stay on top of all of your projects through the Dashboard. The Dashboard aggregates and displays the most important information from all of your projects. You can view tasks that have been assigned to you, upcoming events and recent posts files and notes. With a single glance, you can get caught up on all of your projects.
"We built Groupiful to help individuals manage and collaborate on their professional, personal and social projects.” – Jonathan Burshtein, Founder

New Account Structure
Groupiful accounts are free and allow users to create or join 5 projects, each with 5 collaborators and 100 MB of storage. For a limited time, users can also earn additional projects by inviting new Groupiful users to join their project.
If a user, team or business needs additional projects, users or storage, they can subscribe to one of Groupiful’s premium plans. When subscribers create a new plan, they can choose to use one of their free plans or to create a premium plan. Storage limits are shared amongst all of a subscriber’s premium plans.
Subscribers will now be able to share subscriptions with other users. For example, if Bob subscribes to the Team plan, he can add his employees Grace and Nancy to his subscription. This way, Bob, Grace and Nancy will all be able to create premium projects under Bob’s subscription.
