Note: This feature is currently available for invited participants in our private beta.

We're excited to announce our new beta program, showcasing our next-gen boards—Timeline roadmap and Grid! These have been meticulously crafted to offer improved performance, flexible UX, and more capabilities that will revolutionize your workflows.

Right now, these boards are in closed beta, and being tested by a select group of customers in various segments, industries and sizes. Their invaluable feedback helps us refine every detail and ensure flawless quality and functionality.
