Your daily stand-ups or weekly status meetings feel bloated and inefficient – but, you need a way to get regular status updates and keep your team on the same page.
What to do? This is where our Heartbeat Check-in comes in ❤️
The Heartbeat Check-in is a daily or weekly status update delivered via email or Slack that helps everyone on your team understand, "What's going on?"
Use our Heartbeat Check-in to automate status updates in your team. You’ll align everyone around progress easily and asynchronously, and save dozens of hours a month by streamlining (or replacing!) your daily stand-up meetings.
