A great way to find focus whenever you start your day

What are Standups?

While Check-ins are a great way to reflect on your work on a weekly basis, Standups gives you and your team to update eachother more frequently on what you're working on. Standups gives you a way to check in every day with your team about topics that are top of mind without having to do an in-person or video meeting. They can be filled out in just a few minutes and are a great way to update your entire team on what you're working on and flagging any challenges you might be having.

A typical Standup format:

  • What did you do yesterday?: An overview of the tasks and events from the day before.

  • What are you doing today?: An overview of what you're trying to accomplish, and what's on the agenda for today.

  • Blockers: Listing out any blockers you may have or things you are waiting on. This is a great place to use an @ mention to flag any needs from other team members, without being too disruptive.

Available on Plus and Premium subscriptions
