Team update Snippets

Asynchronous status updates to help your team move faster
so-so
To configure this asynchronous status-sharing tool, the only configuration needed is to set who is on your team and where you want the updates to be shared.
Once configured, everyone can write their snippets by just hitting the big green button above the table of snippets. To streamline the tool for their use, you can move these first setup sections to a sub-page, or just collapse them.

Who’s sharing updates?

Add your team members to the table below so they get private reminders through Coda’s to write a status update (if they haven’t already started one):

Friendly automated reminder :) Can you write an update snippet in ?

Where should status updates be announced?

This doc will automatically send a Slack message to the
channel reminding folks to read everyone’s snippets on this doc.
See announcement message preview
We have 2 new status updates to read in

When should everything happen?

By default, this template runs a weekly cadence with reminders early Friday afternoon and status announcements on Monday morning, but, like everything in Coda docs, you can customize that!

🏃 You can run a daily status sharing cadence instead

This doc is pre-loaded with automations for either cadence, so you can just toggle this button on to switch to daily mode:
The daily cadence will run on
Monday
+4

🕑 You can adjust the times that Slack messages are sent

You can set the days and times that all the Slack messages get sent. In the top right corner of this doc, go to

then select Automations.

You’re ready to use the tool

You’ve finished the setup process! The only thing your team members need to know is to press this big green button whenever they get a Slack reminder. It will give them a writing canvas pre-tagged with their name and the date.

Add a new update

ok
For best results, status updates should:
Be oriented around projects, not just stream-of-conscious
Include links so interested folks can dig in to learn more
State your plans for the next week (or day)

What Snippets are shown by default?

The automations in this doc automatically track when announcements go out in the controls below, so the table can automatically filter itself intelligently.
Most recent announcement:
Mon, May 13, 9:01 AM
Prior announcement:
Mon, May 6, 9:02 AM
To see older Snippets, feel free to play with the filter bar on the table — those are personal controls that don’t affect how other users see the table.
