Imagine the following scenario, you’re a remote designer, coming online to do some work. Some Slack teams use ‘#status’ to raise a hand and say hi to everyone, some utilise bots that run daily standup and other semi-automated methods. Karma bot Status offers a non-intrusive way of tracking your tasks and time during the business day.

With Karma bot Status you’d simply need to type /k designing banners in #cool-project channel to:

  1. check in (start your business day, if you will)
  2. record task you’re working on

Each employee can set ‘Starting time’ and team leaders can track availability. Over time, the system will be able to tell if the person is reliable or not: “mostly on time”, “usually 20 mins late”.

Setting starting time like that really helps connecting people across different time zones. This helps to define at least one moment during the day when the employee is most likely available for a quick chat.

Catch up on Slack at the beginning of business day: check in, start a task, disconnect and finally do some deep work!

Reports are available to managers.
