    SquidHub is a team collaboration tool which combines real-time messaging, task management and file sharing on a single platform.

    The platform is designed to improve team collaboration and project management and remove in-app navigation and context-switching between apps,

    History[edit]

    SquidHub was founded in Denmark in 2016 by Andreas Overbeck and Asger Stjernholm.

    The name originates from the Danish expression "squid" which is used to describe a person who juggles a lot of projects at the same time.

    Features[edit]

    Groups[edit]

    Groups (known as channels or projects on other collaborative platforms) contains three boards (tasks, messages and files). All three boards are available without switching between tabs.

    Groups can be used to collaborate on a project both inside a company as well as invite external users from other organizations.

    Messaging[edit]

    The message board lets team members in a group communicate with each other without the use of email og SMS (text messages).

    Direct messages allow users to send private 1-on-1 messages to each other rather than a group of people, and are shown on top of the groups.

    Task Management[edit]

    The todo board works as a shared task list for the team members in a group.

    Team members can add more details to a task such as deadline, reminders, multiple assignees, subtasks, notes and attachments.

    File Sharing[edit]

    Users can upload files, create Google Docs, Sheets and Slides and link to webpages and documents on other platforms. The documents and links can be organized in folders.

    Calendar[edit]

    All tasks across all groups can be seen in the calendar, which can also be connected to Google Calendar.

    Platforms[edit]

    Users can sign in and use SquidHub in a web browser, with no download required.

    SquidHub can also be downloaded as apps for iPhone and Android phones.

    SquidHub is a freemium product. The main paid features are unlimited groups, permission management inside each group, copy groups, disable message board and unlimited storage.
