The Friday routine builder makes it easy to run virtually any communication habit you can think of - the daily scrum meeting is one of unlimited options you can choose. You see other examples on our templates page.
Does this integrate with workplace chat like Slack and Teams?
Yes! We integrate with Slack and Microsoft Teams and can automate any routine communication and updates from these tools.
Who can see the responses?
It's up to you! Responses could only be visible to the team, or you can add other stakeholders into the mix.
For example, you could select one of the following options:
Just you (the team leader)

What are best practices when running a daily scrum?
There are a few best practices to make the most of this information sharing meeting at work. We've shared our top tips below:
1.) Use these reports to save time in meetings - meetings are great for collaboration, not basic information sharing. Use the daily scrum template to spend less time sharing information and more time resolving blockers.
2.) Document output, not activity - encourage the team to document output vs. activity. This is a major lesson we learned in the book, High Output Management. It's not useful to see a list of activities someone completed for the week.
3.) Keep it simple - Don't reinvent the wheel. The more questions you ask, the more likely someone is to not complete the scrum. Limit to 3-4 questions.
5.) Map work to a higher-level goal - how did the day-to-day work contribute to a higher-level purpose or goal? Make sure to document why you are working on a particular item.
6.) Pull in work from third-party tools - if you use project management tools like Asana or Jira, make sure to link to the appropriate activity if someone wants to learn more. We can help with this too.
