Follow what we've been up to: new features, updates and announcements about your favorite standup bot.


Meetings with more than 3 questions

Yet another top requested feature is here. You can now configure standups with just 1 or to up to 7 questions*. The rule of 3 is gone. Long live the rule of 1-7!

What's really useful about this feature is that it enables many other types of meetings beyond standups like regular team check-ins, ice breakers and status/mood updates.

*"Why 7?", you may be thinking. Well, because at 8 it felt more like a survey, so that's where we drew the line 🧑‍🎨. Seriously though, if you need more than that, we'd love to hear from you.


New look and under-the-hood improvements

This month we worked on a bunch of under-the-hood improvements to make the app feel snappier. But the thing that you'll notice the most is the fresh new look for the interface.

The overall layout is essentially the same but we made a few small user experience enhancements throughout the app. We're excited to have made this refresh, because it's going to enable us to work much faster towards a ton of features we have planned. Can't wait to share them with you!


Slack Connect support

We're really excited about this one. You can now use StandupBot in your Slack Connect channels, letting you involve external teammates and stakeholders in your standups! 🎉

Everything works the same as with any other standup, but StandupBot is now able to join a Slack Connect channel and let people from outside your organization post and read standup updates.



A long requested feature is here. You can now add automatic reminders to your standups to make sure your teammates don't forget to participate.

In usual StandupBot fashion, it's super simple to use. You just toggle the reminders option for your standup, and the bot will send a reminder before the standup ends to anyone that hasn't yet posted their update. That's it. On or Off – no confusing settings to deal with.
