Replace time consuming meetings and disruptive notifications with a clear report. Save the meeting time for the important issues and meaningful team interactions.
How It Works
1 Check in
Team members respond to a brief check-in prompt daily or weekly.
Prompts are customizable, time zone aware, and sent via email, SMS, Slack, or other tools.

2 Pull in data
Status Hero automatically adds activity from your project management tools to the check-ins and a real-time activity stream.
Integrations include tools like GitHub, Jira, Trello, Asana, Azure Devops, and hundreds of others.
3 Get updated
Everyone gets a report with team-wide check-ins, goals, activities, and requests for help.
Later, you can create custom reports for 1:1s and retros.
Working on What
Modern teams are clobbered with notifications and pings from the applications and systems they need to get work done.
It's almost impossible to parse all that raw data and figure out who's doing what, towards which goals.
Status Hero sorts it all out into an elegant and clear report. At a glance, you and your team can understand the context of your work, progress made, and jump on blocking issues or other requests for help.
Effective Team Communication
High-performing teams collaborate well because each team member understands what their teammates are doing.
This transparency reduces duplicative efforts, promotes trust, and enables team members to jump in and help each other out when needed. It also means that the team can celebrate wins—big and small—together.
With Status Hero, everyone understands the context of everyone else's work without the overhead of interruptions and meetings. The path is cleared for meaningful team communication and interactions.
Accurate Delivery Estimates
Status Hero prompts your team members to set 1-2 goals (not tasks) each time they check in. Then, on subsequent check-ins, they indicate if they met these goals.
With this goal-oriented and yes/no approach, team members tune their ability to estimate timelines for their work. In turn, project estimates for the whole team are far more accurate.
