Stand-ups

Time bot helps tracking team’s productivity via daily stand-up meetings, asking every member the 3 key questions at the beginning of the day (e.g.):

  • What have you finished since yesterday?
  • What will you do today?
  • Any impediments in your way?

A short report is posted to the channel of your preference so everyone can know what the others are up to or help teammates to resolve blockers.

To enable and customise daily stand-ups head over to Settings > Stand-ups

Can I get a refund?

By default, your election to discontinue will take effect at the end of the then-current subscription period. You will not receive a refund for the then-current subscription period’s fees.

For example, if you have purchased a full year of Time bot subscription and paid the entire fees in advance, and during the year season you elect to discontinue your subscription, your subscription will expire at the end of the current period, but subscription Fees for the current year will not be refunded.

As another example, if you have purchased a monthly Time bot subscription and you subsequently elect to discontinue your subscription, your subscription will expire at the end of the current monthly billing period, but subscription fees for the current monthly billing period will not be refunded.

All sales are final. We do not give full or partial refunds for subscriptions that you have purchased regardless of the basis for the refund request.

As a subscription provider, Time bot reserves the right to offer refunds, discounts or other considerations in select circumstances at its sole discretion.
