Introducing Observer Mode

Want to give a project stakeholder or part-time team member access to your team’s check-ins without requiring them to check-in too? You aren’t alone, so today we are releasing the previously experimental “observer mode” feature to all accounts.

Here’s how it works: team administrators can designate any new or existing team members as an “observer”. Observers will get a daily check-in summary from the team, however they will not be prompted to check-in, and they won’t show up in the team summary or affect the check-in completion rate. Observer preferences can be changed in the team settings.

Feedback welcome!
