⚠️ Important note to all basic plan users

Dear awork user,

when you chose awork you also chose to work better and happier with your team. And we are super proud to have you!

As a Basic plan user you decided for the smallest but powerful awork plan to manage your teams projects. You might have noticed, that you were able to enjoy free access to all the available business plan features until now. On November 6th 2023, these features will become restricted according to your awork plan.

If you want to keep your access to all of awork's beautiful features we recommend to upgrade your awork plan to Business.

How to upgrade your plan

On November 6th a popup will open on your first visit in awork. You’ll also receive a reminder mailing on that morning. Both will provide a link to open the upgrade modal in awork.

You want to upgrade today? Just send us a quick mail to [email protected] and we’ll take care of it.

How to stay in the basic plan

If you want to stay in the Basic plan, you do not need to do anything at all. We want to help you understand how the restrictions apply to your team and your awork’s features.

This is especially important if you already used the Business plan features and decide to stay within the Basic plan. Find detailed information about the specific changes to your workspaces features below.
