Over the years, we all have attended many meetings where a topic was brought up, discussed, and then sent to be handled later. The problem is, that later never comes, because no one ever remembered to deal with it.
After a while, we end up discussing the same topic again, which results in wasted time and energy.
Using check-ins solves this problem: When your team needs to sync, you simply configure a new check-in that will automatically get the updates of everyone at a predefined hour.
With DailyBot, you can run anything (e.g. meetings, events, projects) through simple chat messages, and it will generate a report that everyone can read to stay in sync. Your team can then focus on what matters instead of worrying about more meetings.
Get started with check-ins
Teams are constantly communicating and collaborating. With team check-ins, you can track and share progress, keep everyone accountable for their work, and share and collaborate on tasks asynchronously.
Check-ins comes with two built-in commands that quickly let you sync with your team according to your own previous configurations:
- The checkin command is a way to fill out reports of the day on demand, though you can always configure your check-in times to be triggered automatically. Whatever way you choose, using check-ins is great for teams because: a) This way your teammates get predictable input of your work every day, b) Management gets happy since it doesn't have to (micro)manage you, and, last but not least c) you get to be autonomous without compromising your collaboration.
- The report command is the other half of daily. If the first command lets you fill out reports, this command will let you read them. If you use it, whether in a direct message with DailyBot or a public channel, you'll get a summary of the filled reports for the day at that particular moment. Never waste more time asking for progress.
