Collaboration for the Modern Creative
Zig is a project tool designed for flexible teams and explorative processes.
Fast, Flexible, and Relevant
Zig is designed for the challenges of creative production. Whether you are combining new technologies, dealing with new mediums, or tackling unique design challenges, Zig can help you onboard your team and deliver your project.
Zig is a complete tool for project collaboration, offering everything from task scheduling, states and approvals, to rich group chat and channels.
Zig allows teams to be assembled from anyone who’s signed up, so you can augment your team easily, and still see everything in a single view.
Everything you see is directly related to you. That makes Zig easier to use, and it allows you to mix teams without worry that people will see things they shouldn’t.
Make Plans and Deliver on Promises
Zig’s scheduling and task management tools make it beautifully simple to plan and track projects. You can layout roadmaps, assign tasks, and set dependencies. Task information automatically aggregates up to let everyone know how things are going without having to dig down to specific tasks.
Scheduling and Task Management Features
- drag and drop scheduling
- dependencies and parenting
- task states (assigned, started, finished, approved)
- task priority warnings
- automatic priority sorting
Create Specialized Teams
Zig doesn’t have teams, it has people and connections. Anyone in the Directory is a potential team member, so you can build specialized teams as-needed.
Learn About the Directory
The Directory is a unique feature in Zig. It connects you to every other person that’s signed up.
You can create working teams by connecting to people on the Directory and adding them to projects. Creative work is often demanding, with uniue challenges, and we designed Zig to allow you to assemble teams that can meet those challenges. Connect to the people you work with regularly, and grow your network when needed.
Check in with team members in realtime, share files, ideas, and notes.
Work with people outside your walls like they’re in the room.
One View to Rule them All
No need to go from project to project, exiting one to look at another. Zig aggregates everything into one view, so you can see the status of all of your projects and tasks at a glance.
Our Filtering Theory
Projects are complicated. There are lots of things to do, and those things often depend on other things. You can’t edit until you get footage. You can’t animate until you get a rig.
Users don’t take to a lot of task management because it’s hard to parse all the information. So we decided to trim it down and make sure everything is relevant. So when someone looks at a roadmap, they see their tasks and the tasks that are directly connected to them. That relevance makes everything easier to understand and manage.
Zig shows you tasks that your directly connected to, and important info like dependencies.
See everything using simple views, paired down and priority sorted. No clutter, just relevance.
Channels are created between tasks, people, and groups. That context keeps everyone productive and focused. People can share notes and ideas in real time, provide feedback, or help with problems.
- rich media embedding
- embedded task lists
- markdown formatting
- drag and drop file sharing
- group and direct messaging
We’re sticklers for security. Firtsly, Zig’s a project tool built on a social network, not an advertising company built on a social network, so we don’t need to know what you’re up to.
To that end all messages are encrypted end to end using TLS and AE256 encryption. Our network partners are HIPAA Compliant, SOC 2 Type II Compliant, Privacy Shield certified, and GDPR compliant
