After months of development and efforts, we are pleased to finally launch the Open Beta of Treviz.
Treviz is a web platform that helps you build collaborative organizations, in which you can work on the projects you want, and get fairly rewarded. Once you are part of the platform, you can browse its various projects, decide for yourself in which one you would be the most valuable, and join the team. If none interests you, you can also simply create your own project, and start recruiting members. Once the team is formed, you can simply work on your project using a traditional Kanban, share documents, discuss around a chat.
Please note that the Treviz beta only implements a fraction of the final product's fonctionalities. Ethereum blockchain integration and rewards are for instance not yet implemented.
Projects are the core of an organization, the source of its value.
Launch and browse projects
Once registered, you can immediately browse the various projects of the platform.
You can also create an unlimited number of projects. Just specify its name, give it a short description, specify the skills you would need to make it succeed, its fields, and select who it should be visible to.
Invite and candidate to projects
You can easily invite other members to your projects (if you have the rights to). Candidating to a project is as simple as dropping a few lines to reach out.
You can easily see all your candidacies and invitations on your dashboard
Manage your tasks with Kanban Boards
In order to be an efficient collaboration tool, Treviz comes with the possibilty to create as many Kanban boards per project as you would need. Specify its name, create the various columns, and start dragging the tasks.
Every task must have a supervisor, and can only have one assignee. Both must of course be different. The tasks you are assigned, and the ones you supervise, are also displayed on your personal dashboard and profile, so anyone can easily see how occupied you are.
Inside a task, you can start discussing, and submit your contribution. Once a contribution is submitted, the supervisor must look at it, decide to accept it or not, and grant feedback to the user. In this feedback, he or she can suggest improvements, or praise the user for the good work.
The feedback is private, and can only be seen by the user who receives it and the one who gave it.
Emit jobs for others to see
Jobs can be created for projects, with a specific number of responsibilites. In the future, they will also come with a monthly reward given to the user who holds it. The goal of jobs is to incite users to collaborate more regularily to projects.
Every user can see what are the jobs available to him or her. They can candidate the same way they would candidate to projets.
Share information and documents
Every project comes with a newsfeed that you can use to describe the latest advancements of your project, ask question, etc.
Manage your roles and permissions
To differentiate the members of a project, various roles can be set, with specific permissions. This way, you can easily decide who can recruit new members, create new kanban boards, write posts in the newsfeed, etc.
Communities are an other important part of a community, as they can help them structure around specific fields or constraint. For instance, a school could create a community per prom; a company could create a specific community for each field (IT, Marketing, etc).
Launch and browse communities
Communities can be public (any connected user can see them) or private, open (anyone can join them) or closed (only on candidacy, or invitation).
Inside a community, users can also post news, exchange documents, etc.
Just like for projects, users can browse the various communities that are available to them.
Projects can be linked to specific communities, in order to manage who can view and join them.!
Another interest of the communities is to launch brainstorming sessions. In those sessions, which must have a specific goal or theme, users can post all the ideas they could have; link documents to those ideas, specify if they like it, discuss...
Projects can be created out of ideas, in order to keep trace of all its evolution.
Treviz comes with an inner chat to allow its users to discuss more effectively and quickly than through posts. Chatrooms can be linked to projects or communities.
As we mentionned earlier, Treviz is still a beta, and a lot of functionnalities are still to be implemented. Amonst them are:
- Create a budget, a contract, with a specific token, for every organization
- Create general roles for the organization
- Allow users to vote to split the organization's budget between its projects
- Link rewards to tasks and jobs
- Customize the theme of the platform
- Approve the skill of a member when giving feedback for a task
- Discuss around documents
- Real-time notifications for posts, documents...
- Emojis in posts, chat...
Setting up your own organization
If you are an organization looking to collaborate with other entities (schools, companies, administrations,...), or if you simply want to have a framework that would help it become more horizontal for its collaborators, the Treviz beta is made for you ! Please contact us to know how you could have your own instance , or directly dive into our documentation if you feel comfident with installing it on your own servers.
Please tell us if anything is or feels broken, what you want to see implemented next, or if everything is working fine for you ;)
