Sometimes, work calls for one-off standups or unscheduled surveys. Ad-hoc updates allow you to report only when needed, without having to fit in with a specific timeline — or keep on snoozing needless reminders.
Simply type the
Report command into Slack. And the unscheduled report will wait for you to trigger a question (instead of requesting updates based on a set schedule).
There are three steps to switching the schedule option off:
- Go to standup settings in your dashboard
- Select the 'Schedule' tab at the end of the menu bar
- Click the toggle to the left, so it shows as 'Off'
...and you're off! Now, everyone can get back to focusing on work and only report if the team needs an update 😄
