Pricing FAQ’s

Who is behind bettermeans?

Bettermeans started out as a business run by Bettermeans LLC, but is now a community-supported open source software project.

What are workstreams?

Workstream is our word for Project: a group or set of work. A workstream could be a department of your organization or it could be a specific project that you are working on by your self or with others.

What are users?

Users are all the people that you work with on all the different work streams you create.

What's are public vs. private workstreams?

Access to a private workstream is determined by the creator of that workstream. However public workstreams are available for anyone to see, comment on, contribute to. We are excited about openness and transparency and the richness that it can bring to all of our work – hence unlimited public workstreams for all.

What are publc vs. private users

Public users are those people working with you on public workstreams. Similarly, private users are those working with you on private workstreams.

How does the 30-day free trial work?

If you cancel a paying plan within 30 days of signing up you won’t be charged a thing. Refunds can not be issued after your initial 30 day trial and we don’t prorate for partial months.

Do I get a 30-day free trial if I upgrade?

If you upgrade from a free account to a pay account you are not eligible for the 30-day free trial. The 30-day free trial on paying plans only applies if you sign up for a paying plan now. You can always downgrade later if you choose.
