      It's a HUGE mistake I've placed my project in hacknplan...

      So everything is set and .etc and...If you want to change roles to the users you need premium? Are you kidding me?

      So I have a new role, or added someone role by mistake and I have to pay to change it?

      It's complete milking for cash $$$, horrible... it's almost unusable for free user.

        Sorry, but we are not charging you for anything you had access before, you can't add any role in the free version. If you want to change the permissions of a user, you can go to the Summary page, Members panel and click on the pencil icon next to the name. The roles is a premium feature to create predefined sets of permissions to apply them on an easier way for bigger teams, we just added a call to action to let you know it exists.

        Anyway, we removed the calls to action since they are not being perceived as we thought, we are not trying to monetize agress¡vely like you suggest, we just tried to make our premium features more noticeable since we receive many emails suggesting us to implement features that already exist in premium plans.

          Hello,

          Today I can't see anymore the role tab that requests premium plan. I find normal to have access to the permission of the users as an admin. Applauds for the service and the politics if you keep it this way!

          About monetization, I'm not expert, but why not request premium for every account exceeding overall more than 10 administrated users? (Talking about non-repetitive like Tom could work in 3 projects, but take only 1 of the slots?) The logic is that anyone bellow 5 users is unlikely to pay for the service and everyone above 10 should respectfully pay due to the practicality offered to him.

          Wish you successful business!

            I just wanted to clarify that changing the permissions were always available and has nothing to do with the calls to action. What is free and what is premium hasn't changed in any way.

              This looks pretty useful! Used to using Trello so I'll give this a shot.

              One question I do have is how projects are stored. Do you guys perform any encryption/decryption on your end?

                Hi,

                We encrypt / decrypt traffic, but not the stored data. We plan to implement that soon.
