What are the typical use cases?

Standuply is aimed to make your routine communications more efficient. So, there are several key use cases: 

  1. Stand-up meetings.  

    1. Stand-up agenda (preparation for a stand-up). People often come to the stand-up meetings being not prepared, so the whole team spends more time on this meeting trying to express and understand things that could be written in a couple of lines just before the stand-up and automatically sent to everyone in your team. The other use case here is just sending the agenda to your team before the stand-up. 

    2. Stand-up itself. You don’t have to meet in person every in order to stay on the same page with your team. Sometimes it’s enough to write a few words to a bot and check your channel in Slack to understand what’s going on and what you can help with. 

    3. Stand-up follow-up. It’s a typical situation for any team when you have discusses dozens of things on your meeting, but no one really remembered anything. In this case you can use Standuply to write down things right after the meeting and automatically send it to your team in Slack. 

  2. Retrospective. Standuply can record retrospective feedback from the team members and then display in a public/private channel or send it directly to PM via DM. 

  3. Mood report. Team members can be asked by Standuply questions like “How do you feel today?” or get messages like “Evaluate your mood with a digit from 1 to 5” so that they can quickly answer with a digit. This way you’ll be always aware of how your team feels. 

  4. Surveys / Feedback / Voting. It is very convenient to ask your team a set of short questions using Standuply. For example, you can ask for an opinion about your office’s interior or ask for ideas about how you can improve it. This use case is unique in all varieties and gives wings to the imagination.

  5. Getting data from various sources on a daily/weekly basis. Standuply allows you to get data/charts from Google Analytics and metrics from databases like MySQL or MongoDB. These integrations are organized as data requests. A data request captures information from a third-party service the team uses and attaches that data to an existing Standuply report inside Slack. 

  6. Reminder. Of course, you can use a standard built-in Slackbot for this, but Standuply gives you more functions and flexibility here. 

  7. Fun. Again - use your imagination! Ask your team funny stupid questions, send new jokes every day, etc. 

We would be happy to find out more about any other use cases. Tell us about how you use Standuply! :)
