What is Geekbot?

"Asynchronous stand up meetings inside Slack."

Geekbot is a slackbot assistant that helps users set up real asynchronous stand up meetings within Slack. The solution helps staff stay organized, up-to-date and aligned with the rest of the team. It only takes a few minutes to set up an initial standup with team members.

Geekbot creates a non-intrusive process to help teams stay focused on tasks. Each department can have its own timeline which is helpful for complex projects. Multiple standups break down information and distribute it to the right people directly.

Some of Geekbot's default set of questions include:

  • What did you accomplish yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • What obstacles are impeding your progress?

Users can adjust and customize questions for each standup to better fit the department or team, as well as set a personalized tone. Geekbot can understand simple chat commands such as ‘login’, ‘report’, ‘off’, and primary users can choose who has privileges to edit, and who will be limited to reporting.

All information is distributed through Slack as well as inside the dashboard environment, where users can perform a variety of added actions such as report filtering and additional insights. Users can download standup data by clicking the ‘download CSV’ link manage their email summaries and more.

The best asynchronus daily bot I've used so far

// Freelance Product Designer at Autonomo

What do you like about Geekbot?

I like how easy it is to setup your daily and reminders.
It is also very useful the repository of all publications and how you can navigate on it. The price is also good for me, since it is cheaper than other similar platforms.

What do you dislike about Geekbot?

What I dislike could be applied to other competitors. I think asynchronus bots should leave you more freedom, provide you the "What I am I going to do today" of the previous day as "What did you do yesterday" of the current day and other improvements like that.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Geekbot solve?

Run asynchronus daily meetings with remote teams.

Great app to enhance communication among the team

// CEO/Founder at APOIA.se

What do you like about Geekbot?

Geekbot it's a powerful tool to remind the whole team individuals they need to communicate their progresses. I know, it's kind of obvious everyone should remember to communicate and give accountability of their work, however as the team grows is difficult for managers to keep everyone on that page and that's where geekbot adds value automatizing any kind of reporting activity that is relevant. Super recommend!!!!

What do you dislike about Geekbot?

The price is quiet expensive for startups based in countries like ours, where currency is devaluated.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Geekbot solve?

It reduced the problem of a lack of transparency/accountability of the team members, and added a consistent way for them to report asynchronously....

Love Geekbot!

// Co-Founer and CPO at Slinger (Slinger Media LLC)

What do you like about Geekbot?

Geekbot has made it easier for our remote team to stay connected to eachother.

Using Geekbot is so simple and straightforward and feels like it fits in naturally into our remote working lifestyle.

What do you dislike about Geekbot?

The price of $3 per user seems a bit high as we grow more. I would be much happier paying for tiered pricing that allows up to x users.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Geekbot solve?

We're a small team spread across North America. It's been a challenge for us to feel like we're working together at times since each of us is working on a different part of the project. Geekbot has made the team feel more tight-knit.

The Perfect Bot For Daily Standups

// Co-Founder at Bonfire IT

What do you like about Geekbot?

Working at a busy creative development agency can be chaotic, and running one can be even crazier. Managing multiple global clients and teams in various locations can be a cumbersome process especially when it comes to organising daily stand ups on various time zones. That is where Geekbot has come in to save the day, by allowing us to alert the team members at 09:00 to update Geekbot with their notes for the project, this then collates and sends a detailed summary to the PM and the key account stake holders.

What do you dislike about Geekbot?

I would suggest maybe adding a feature for the PM or team to interject when another team member raises a blocking point or issue so it pauses sending further updates to an action has been agreed.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Geekbot solve?

We have primarily used Geekbot to manage mobile application development projects.

Great for remote teams

// Mentor (UX and User Onboarding) at 500 Startups

We're a distributed team and want to break down the culture of facetime and nine-to-five work. Geekbot helps us run our daily asynchronous standups, which allow our team to work on their own schedule. We also do weekly updates with Geekbot so our meetings are about discussing and questioning items, not simply providing updates. This makes us a much more efficient and effective team and we couldn't do it without Geekbot!
