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 the same transparency your team would get from an in-person meeting.

What if my team spans multiple time zones?

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

Do team members need to download an app?

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

Do team members need to setup an account too?

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

Can I adjust notification settings by team member?

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

What about our JIRA/Trello/TFS/Github management tools?

Status Hero sits atop more detailed ticket and task management systems by focusing on the gist of the work: 1-2 brief daily goals per person.

Can I create and/or belong to multiple teams?

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

Does Status Hero work with smartphones?

Yes. Check-in forms and reports can 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.

I have more questions!

We're happy to help. Drop us a line.

Why Status Hero?

Connect Remote, Virtual, or Distributed Teams

Status Hero collects and documents off-hour status updates that would otherwise get lost in emails, work tickets, or chat logs.

Cut Through the Project Management Noise

Find out with a sentence or two from each team member whether everyone is working effectively towards specific goals.

Eliminate Status & Stand-up Meetings

"Can you hear me?" "Nope!" Something always seems to go wrong with all-hands multi-point meetings. Status Hero delivers all of the value of a status meeting without the wasted time, scheduling, or tech hassle. 

Promote Transparency & Trust

Trust is built when everyone understands how each team member contributes. More trust means quicker decisions, smoother collaboration, and ultimately a happier and more productive team.

Better Software Estimates

When team members get into the rhythm of setting daily goals, they'll get better at setting expectations for their work. Then you'll get better at devising realistic software delivery estimates.

“Heroic. We completely replaced our daily standups, and our remote team members feel closer than ever. No more chasing everyone down!”
Nicolas Grasset, CTO, MakeSpace
Deb Cypher
“Our CEO loves the transparency, and all of us in a leadership or management role find the blockers info invaluable. People report they are thinking more deliberately about their goals for the day and trying to plan more efficiently.”
Deb Cypher, VP Product & Engineering, Polaris Health Directions
Mei Siauw
“We operate out of 6 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.
