Frequently Asked Questions

Who has access to the check-ins?

Everyone on your team can see the status check-ins from anyone else on the team. The goal is to give your team the same transparency they would get out of an in-person meeting.

What if my team spans multiple time zones?

Status Hero has been designed and tested from the ground up to handle this elegantly. Time zones and notification times can be adjusted for each individual team member.

Do my team members need to download an app?

Nope. Status Hero uses existing communication channels (email, SMS, Slack, Cisco Spark, and HipChat).

Do my team members need to setup an account too?

Negative. Secure, single-use magic links are used in all notification, so checking in is as easy as clicking on a link in an email or text message.

Can I adjust notification settings by team member?

Yes, and you can skip sick days and holidays. In fact, team members can also do this for themselves.

Can I create and/or belong to multiple teams?

Yes. With a single sign-in email address you can create new teams, belong to other teams, and switch between teams within Status Hero.

Does Status Hero work with smartphones and tablets?

Yes. Check-in forms and reports are designed to be used with any device - desktop, mobile, or tablet.

What about security?

We've gone to great lengths to keep your data secure and confidential with enterprise-grade precautions. Read more about security.

Do I need to involve my IT department?

No. Status Hero works independently of corporate servers.

Why Status Hero?

Connect Remote, Virtual, or Distributed Teams

Having trouble running regular stand-up meetings across different geographies and time zones? Status Hero fixes that by collecting and documenting off-hour status updates that would otherwise get lost in emails, work tickets, or chat logs.

Cut Through the Project Management Noise

With all the task lists, tickets, emails, burndown charts, scrum boards, and pull requests flying around, it can be really difficult to figure out who's doing what. More importantly, is everyone working effectively towards specific goals? Find out with a sentence or two of goals and accomplishments from each team member, all in one place.

Eliminate Status & Stand-up Meetings

"Can you hear me?" Nope! Something always seems to go wrong with all-hands multi-point meetings, provided you can even get them scheduled in the first place. Use Status Hero to get all the value of a status meeting (and then some!) without any of the wasted time, scheduling, or tech hassle. Your team will thank you.

Promote Transparency & Trust

Trust is built within your team when everyone understands how each team member contributes. Status Hero gathers and organizes progress updates so the team can trust one another, make quicker decisions, collaborate more effectively, and ultimately be happier and more productive.

Better Software Estimates

When team members get into the rhythm of setting daily goals, they'll get better at setting expectations for their work. In turn, you'll get better at coming up with realistic software delivery estimates and planning future work for the whole team.

Nicolas Grasset

"Heroic. We completely replaced our daily standups, and our remote team members feel closer than ever. No more chasing everyone down!"

Deb Cypher

"Our CEO loves the transparency, and all of us in a leadership or management role find the blockers invaluable. People report they are thinking more deliberately about their goals for the day and trying to plan more efficiently and reasonably."

Mei Siauw

"LeadIQ operates out of 6 different time zones. Without Status Hero, it would be nearly impossible to keep everyone connected, informed, and most of all, happy. It's been a huge part of our success."
