Thanks for hunting our app and for all your contributions to the PH community @hnshah! Hi Product Hunt, I’m Aydin 👋 Today, I’m incredibly proud and excited to introduce a product that we’ve been working on for the past 2 years. We’re calling it Fellow and it’s a manager’s co-pilot — a toolkit for managers & their teams to power 1-on-1s, team meetings, feedback, goals and more. 👩‍💻👨‍💻 Who’s on Fellow? We’ve been in private beta with 10,000+ users at companies like Shopify, Keep Truckin, SurveyMonkey and more. We’re finally opening up Fellow to everyone and couldn’t think of a better community to start with. 📖 A bit of a personal story: Before creating Fellow, we were the co-founders of Fluidware, a company we bootstrapped to just under 100 in staff before it was acquired by SurveyMonkey 🐵. We started that journey as individual contributors and then became managers – and eventually… managers of managers! Like many startup folks, we benefited and learned from software for every aspect of our business, from sales to marketing, to customer success. However, as our number of direct reports grew, we always wondered: Why isn’t there a great app for managers of people?!? When sales and marketing professionals are hired, they get access to tools like Salesforce, Hubspot, and Marketo. Fellow.app would be the equivalent tool for team leaders 👌. With this idea in mind, we interviewed industry experts and learned from the best coaches to determine the traits and practices that make someone a great leader. In the end, we built our learnings into Fellow: an app that empowers managers to have more effective meetings, set clear goals, and exchange ongoing feedback! If you lead a team, Fellow is the co-pilot that you’ve been waiting for :) ✈️ ✨ What makes Fellow special? Fellow is the first tool of its kind built from the lense of the manager focused on managing people. We wanted to build a lightweight tool that required no training and focused on a pleasant minimalistic experience. No bloat. Just the essentials. ...oh, and it integrates with the tools you already use like Calendar and Slack! 🔌 😻 We’d love to hear your feedback! We wouldn’t be where we are without our beta users’ ideas and support. Now, we’re excited to work with the ProductHunt community to get more feedback and continue making Fellow better for managers and their teams. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

I use Fellow every morning to plan 1:1s with both my directs and upcoming “skip-level” meetings. It has taught me how to be a more consistent manager / leader.

Fellow has been a Terrific experience so far. Previously, I had been using a mix of Notion, Trello and Google calendar to manage one-on-ones, and it quickly became unmanageable with 10 direct reports. Fellow.app has been really refreshing. I would highly recommend giving it a shot if you run a lot of one-on-ones.

Love this product! I use it daily as a Manager and can’t get enough of it. My favorite feature is the ability to assign action items during meetings!

@sabrina_leblanc1 Thanks Sabrina - some good news on action-items is that we are going to be enhancing that feature in the near future with things like due dates - I think you'll like what you see!

I've been using Fellow for over a year now and it's become an integral part of my routine. I can't remember what I did before in terms of organizing my 1:1's with staff, but whatever it was, it didn't work as well. This simple interface is always ready as one of my browser windows for me to log the various thoughts and issues I need to chat with my team about. The ultimate holding pen, with history, action items and shared content. The Slack integration and reminders are also great.

@nick_quain It means a lot to us to know we've had a positive impact on your workflow Nick! We're still out there competing with physical notebooks - but I think you nailed it in terms of Fellow being the ultimate holding pen! We want to be that one place for all your working relationships.

I have used Fellow for both OneEleven and FreshFounders. It is such a great tool for managing teams and staying organized. I would have loved to have had it for my first few companies! Don't know how I could manage without it now... Meetings are so much more effective with collaborative and defined agendas, convenient minutes and, most importantly, great outcome tracking through assigned tasks. It really makes the meetings productive and holds everyone (including me!) accountable. One great example of the value is that when I went on a vacation last February and was away for two exec team meetings, I was able to 'get up to speed' in minutes by simply reading the notes from the missed meetings. An invaluable tool. Great work Fellow.app team!

@brad4syth Thank you Brad!! I love your comment on "getting up to speed" - it's not something that we originally had thought about - but you're absolutely right and that historical context does a lot to keep people in sync with what's important. We hope to keep delivering value to your work!!

Fellow is truly a game changer. I've never seen a product spread so quickly in an organization with so much love for it. People have really embraced Fellow because of how easy it is to use, the design is solid and really doesn't restrict how individuals want to set up their 1:1s or meetings while making it easy to keep track of the important comments and action items that come out each meeting. Prior to Fellow we were living out of Google Docs and had tried Trello, Asana and Jira for our 1:1s. Fellow is as easy to use as a Google Doc but makes coordinating Action Items and Talking Points across multiple 1:1's, Meeting, Syncs and Stand Ups super easy. I feel like I have more time in my day when I'm using Fellow and I live with a lot less stress knowing that I'm not letting anything slip through the cracks. I've never fallen in love with a product so quickly!

Outside of 1 on 1's, we also run all of our team meetings using Fellow to ensure that our agenda and action items recieve the proper attention and engagement. It's been a real difference maker for us in driving behaviour changes amongst managers and colleagues. Our mantra now is that if a conversation topic isn't in Fellow, it doesn't exist.

@karamdeep LOVE this: "if a conversation topic isn't in Fellow, it doesn't exist" --> but in all seriousness, if a record of something isn't there, it really does fade and it becomes super hard to recall if something was discussed or if it wasn't, if someone made a commitment or they didn't. Part of our goal is to increase accountability across an organization one manager at a time!

I think I am addicted and use the product almost daily. This fantastic product has brought order to my 1:1's and meetings. With a full history of notes for all our meetings, the team can easily stay on the same page and follow how we are trending over time. Meetings are more productive and go deeper thanks to everyone contributing in Fellow ahead of time. The slack integration is next level and is changing how I want to build new products. Thanks again for your great product and best of luck on your launch. Bonus points for the extremely supportive staff who are always willing to help via the in product chat (Shout out to Ally).

@smaclell Wow thanks Scott - means a lot to us that we can add value to your day! I think you're spot on - it's not just about tracking things but part of Fellow's mission is to make all of those interactions so much more productive. We have a lot of cool things coming up in the next few months - stay tuned!!

For several months I've been using Fellow.app at work every day. I love having a single place to go to access & edit all of my meeting agendas - 1:1 meetings as well as group meetings - and knowing that everyone else in the company has the same. Rather than having to create & share a new doc for each new meeting agenda, everyone in the company now knows to just go to Fellow, and the agenda for every meeting is there, organized by person and by date & time. Fellow syncs with Google Calendar, so agendas for all meetings are automatically in Fellow, and all agendas are linked to from their Google Calendar event. Highly recommended!
