It would seem that the number of members for the free tier was reduced to 3 instead of 5 as mentioned in the video.

Thanks for the spot Louis-Phillipe. I will check this out as soon as I return from holiday, when I’m going to be recording the second part :)

But they added 2FA to the free tier which is welcome.

Actually I see they had that already, dropped other features for the free tier.
Unlimited collections > 100 collections
5000 items > 500 items
3Gb attachments > 1Gb attachments
5 members > 3 members

It's very like Trello which I've been trialling of late, even uses it as a login and imports Trello boards directly. But it has additional features, especially in views and much more customizability. Trello has more appeal somehow, a very likable experience in use, the design and interaction is quite sophisticated but Zenkit might be more useful. Hmmm. Looking forward to Part 2...

I hear you Tommy. When I look at Trello, which I use on occasion, I feel like I can pick it up and play as aesthetically, it rocks. Getting down behind the hood, thats where I sometimes feel there is more to Zenkit and as I’ve made use of it well within project teams I’ve worked with, I thought it ripe to share with a wider audience now it’s had a revamp. I hope you like the second part! Keep comments coming, always good to read.
