To change the language individually, go to Settings > My user profile > Language. Additionally, organization administrators can set the language for everyone by going to Settings > Organization > Dashboard preferences. Go to the App →

🗓️ Workflows now feature an improved user experience for scheduling tasks. Users can easily schedule tasks within workflows, enhancing productivity and task management. Enjoy a seamless workflow creation process with this update. See Workflows →

📄 We have introduced a new action in Workflows - the Consolidated report. Users can now add a consolidated report as a new action in their workflows. To access this feature, go to the Web App > Workflows > Creation/edition Workflow > Actions > Post a consolidated report. This enables users to generate consolidated reports automatically as part of their workflows. Go to Workflows →

DailyBot now allows users to select a universal time zone for Check-in reminders and consolidated reports. This feature is in response to user feedback, as many teams are located in different time zones around the world, making it difficult to select a time that works for everyone 🕒

With this release, users can select a specific time zone for the Start Reminder time (participants' local time zone or a universal time zone) and another for the Consolidated report (organization time zone & another specific time zone), or choose the same universal time zone for both.


👀 With the new Consolidated Report options in Check-ins, users now have three conditions to send the report: Always (even if no responses are collected, with no consideration for holidays), Only when there is at least one response (default), and Only when someone is pending to respond (this includes the first option of Always sending).


🚀 DailyBot now includes a new view where users can see responses to check-ins that share the same template (i.e. the same questions), making it easier for users to view multiple Check-ins at once. Learn about aggregated reports →


DailyBot has added two new options to your check-in configuration to allow for greater customization of response times. Users can now decide when participants are allowed to fill out reports with more specificity. The new options are:

  • Allow responses before the start reminder time (if disabled, DailyBot won't allow responses before the start reminder time)
  • Allow submitting reports on any dates (allowing reports on past and/or future dates, depending on the configuration).


We added a new setting for Check-ins, where org admins can enable the reuse of responses for all users in the organization, to make it easier to visualize the responses of check-ins with the same questions at the same time. With this new organization setting, all current members will have the reuse of responses enabled, and any new member will automatically have it enabled as well. Find in Settings →


We added a new option in Kudos to see the values of kudos and kudos++ added in the leaderboard. If you’d rather combine both of these values into a single one, now you can. Find this in Settings →


🌅 To simplify the process of setting your time off, we have added a new feature that allows members to quickly set their time off through the simple command "set time off YYY-MM-DD to YYYY-MM-DD" or after check-ins. This means that members can easily communicate OOO days to their team without having to send separate messages or emails.

March 7, 2023
