With more teams turning remote lately and distributed teams thriving in our era, we thought we could do better in the web version of our daily standup offering. The problem we tried to solve, involved blurring the lines between synchronous daily standup and an asynchronous version of it, that would cover remote and/or distributed teams around the world, as already offered successfully by our Slack or Microsoft Teams integrations.
The outcome of this effort is the next revision of Team O’clock Standup covering both worlds.
So how it works? Teams have the option to add their daily standup notes and answer the three questions in an asynchronous way. When all members are done adding notes, a summary email is sent.
Teams who are interested in holding a synchronous standup can click the “Sync Roundup” button and perform a 15min timeboxed standup event.
Apart from the personal standup notes, the team has also the option to add generic standup notes while the roundup is in progress.
