Vorteile:

Through a weekly message in Slack, we can now asynchronously recognise other team members, celebrate community wins and share a general status update.

I used to say "a pain to edit later," but they fixed that: if you edit what you've entered in the geekbot channel, your corrections immediately show up in the group channel.

A less intrusive team check-in for remote teams that's easy to use

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: Geekbot allows for us to have more regular check-ins and stand-up meetings with employees on a remote team. Being on a remote team is quite lonely at times and having Geekbot be a non-committal daily check-in really helps us stay on the same page with our team. The other reports are interesting and I'm excited to collect more datapoints over-time to get a nice gauge on how the team is feeling as a whole.

Vorteile:

The interface is incredibly easy to use and the onboarding/setup was super clean. I have used other players in the space like Standuply and felt somewhat overwhelmed with functionality. Geekbot has a far better UI/UX and reporting process. We have found our home with Geekbot.

Nachteile:

That there is no free tier. We are a small team and many of their competitors have a free tier for small teams. It has gotta be tough competing with that, but they are definitely taking a step in the right direction with their simplicity and superior UX. I do wish that you could default the manual "report" check-in functionality as we have a daily check-in and a bi-weekly retrospective. 99.9% of the time you are going to do the daily check-in manually by typing "report", but it has you select which of the 2 reports you want to report on.

It works great

Vorteile:

We use Geekbot to do a virtual daily standup on Slack instead of needing to have daily meetings. It saves us time and helps us understand what our colleagues are working on and what they need help with.

Nachteile:

I have no complaints about Geekbot. It's very straightforward.

Geekbot review from an Agile scrum POV

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Vorteile:

This is an asynchronous way to run your team's huddle or standup. This is best suited for small teams or smaller companies with no more than 5-6 people in a team. This helps you save time and get to uncover very quickly where you team is blocked on and what they have been up to.

Nachteile:

As mentioned above, it is okay for teams no more than 6 people. If more, it becomes quite cluttered and overwhelming to handle so many updates at once. This application is best for asynchronous updates and not task or project management. One can get only a daily view but not a weekly or monthly view for medium to large-sized projects. To get a bigger picture view for a Manager, this application should be best used with a ticketing software like Asana, Jira or Linear.

Easy, quick and just what we needed

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

So easy to deploy, manage and customize to our needs, this is exactly what we needed in this pandemic. We are now 9 people working remotely and Geekbot just makes things so easier for us in this context. Slack integration is as easy as it is a lifesaver!

Nachteile:

We've only tested the basic features but are priced for the full thing. Segmented pricing options would be great for small startups like ourselves, maybe?

Great UX, great support. It's now a crucial part of our daily team collaboration rituals

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Vorteile:

My team and I have been using Geekbot for a few months now, and we really like it! It has some great features that make our lives easier. For example, it is very easy to use with a web interface, integrates with Slack, and has analytics and reporting. Our team uses it daily to improve team collaboration and their productivity. Another aspect of the software that I really appreciate is how well-designed the user interface is. There are lots of little details that make the experience better - from notifications of the bots, to having all of our active standups in one admin place so we can manage more in less time. And lastly, their customer service team has been fantastic too - they always respond quickly when we need help or have questions about anything! In conclusion, thanks so much for creating such an awesome standup app!

Nachteile:

I’ve been using Geekbot for a while now and have had the opportunity to use it in many different situations. First, let me say that I appreciate the work they do and all of the hard work that goes into developing the product. It's not easy and it is important to recognise this. Here are my thoughts about what I don't like about Geekbot. First, I love the idea of providing people with an anonymous survey because people can be truly honest, but it would be great if we could nudge the anonymous participants using Geekbot to complete the survey. This is because currently, we have a super low survey participation rate which is really hurting our process. We used Simple Poll previously that had this feature, we would love if they could develop these features! Secondly, their pricing for this seems expensive to me since they charge us per user. The pricing structure makes sense if you are a small team < 10, but we have a lot of interns and temp staff (about 23 people) so the cost stacks up very quickly. We will still continue using it despite the high price tag, but it'd be great to be able to cap it to a flat fee when you exceed a certain size, Simple Poll has that flat fee structure so please consider doing the same!

Best slackbot for doing standup meetings

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

- Ability to edit private DMs and silent publishing to the channel - Ease of configuration, templating, onboarding - Love the engagement survey/reminder to nudge - Pleasant/engaging customer support - Quick reply status for repeating the same status from the previous day

Nachteile:

- Doesn't always start on time - Suffered from extensive delays a few times (20-30 minutes between questions) - Unable to manage other standups (I purchased for several teams but I'm unable to see/configure their settings) - Response times from customer support are a bit slow even via intercom (expect 1-2 business days, sometimes longer) - Timeline performance (dashboard view) for summarization sometimes lags

Productivity Boost

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: We use Geekbot for our virtual standup. We configured it in a way that it asks for a report in the evening. So we write what we've done today and what we are going to do tomorrow. This way we have our next day planned in beforehand which is great for the mental health cause having a day planned helps you sleep at night tight :)

Vorteile:

Geekbot helps our team being productive and efficient.

Nachteile:

Sometimes it gets crazy and forgets about some team members or sends the report reminder in strange times :)

Geekbot, great slack standup tool

4,0 letztes Jahr

Vorteile:

* Easy to setup standup* Easy to customize different questions* Ability to set preferences as to when you get notified* Ability for standup to get broadcasted in slack channel

Nachteile:

* Sometimes the software is a little buggy (geekbot will forget to notify me, sometimes responses do not go through)* Ability to ask random question is there, but in order for me to manually add it to our existing standup, I had to manually add 150 questions to our standup, not fun hehe.

One of the most efficient tool we use

Vorteile:

It's handling our standup almost entirely asynchronously. Brings a lot of discipline, visibility, and helps us save a LOT of time (not 30 mins standups anymore)

Nachteile:

Nothing is missing for me. I would personally love it if they gamified it a little bit, but this is in the "bonus points" category.

Great product for teams!

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

We are a distributed small team that has members from 3 different countries, and we manage our daily standups + retrospectives through Geekbot. Geekbot allowed us to implement daily standup culture within our team without leaving Slack. So far it has helped everyone to get up-to-speed with how to approach the project management culture we are trying to implement and it allowed everyone to see the progress being made, documented and openly appreciated.

Nachteile:

It's so simple, also there are some preset meetings for daily standup or retrospective, etc. They're really helpful to us.

Geekbot ftw!

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Geekbot is a huge time and cost saver for us. Letting people write daily updates asynchronously via slack means everybody can post/read status updates as it suits their schedule. Avoiding those in person meetings saves dozens of hours a week and gives everyone larger blocks of uninterrupted time to get work done.

Vorteile:

Geekbot is dead simple, and it lives where our team lives: in Slack. Set up your questions, your recipients, and your schedule, and you're off and running.

Nachteile:

Nothing to fault here. It's got the right mix of features and simplicity to cover the basics.

Great tool for multi-location teams.

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Its a great tool for teams who are wanting to run stand ups. Its helpful as you don't have to dial in everyday and people can still get visability over progress and blockers. It can easily be configured to prompt you at a flexible time.

Nachteile:

Nothing its pretty easy to use. Sometimes it can pop up on weekend but I need to configure the times properly I think.

Geekbot for University Research Project

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Geekbot staff and the bot have both been exceptional, proactive, and helpful. For a student project that demands steady progress amidst other responsibilities, Geekbot creates a level of accountability that keeps the entire team in motivated and in the loop.

Vorteile:

Customizable - able to set up days and times that meet the projects demands. Engaging - private fun messages to motivate use. Increases Accountability and Transparency - having a bot send out messages helps separate Scrum Master from becoming Scrum Overlord. Efficient and concise - avoids the quick stand-up meetings that turn into long complex code reviews or water cool chats about the weekend.

Nachteile:

No complaints. Works as advertised and the webhooks/API allow for scraping data to where we want to keep our records.

Great tool for our fully remote team

Vorteile:

Love how customizable the stand-ups are, and how personalized it feels. There are so many little features they added which you will find through the free trial - trust me I can't name them all because you'll see them! Makes for such a pleasant set-up and usage experience.

Nachteile:

If you're the kind who doesn't see value in paying for software. GeekBot is about to change that.

5,0 vor 7 Jahren

Vorteile:

GeekBot helps get teams on the same page. We are currently a team split between 3 timezones and 4 locations with serious concerns on inter-team communication. Moving to GeekBot almost instantly has helped bring the team closer to each other. We did some smart bot creation so all of the updates are not going into one channel. This way we have achieved not only company wide but also intra-team communication.

Nachteile:

Difficult to track who all have completed their Daily Updates without leaving Slack. Everything else is super simple and easy to use.
