Iโ€™m a software engineer and I use monolist every day. As an engineer, I care most about the real-time statuses of my pull requests (did it get reviewed? Did my build pass?), and pull requests I am reviewing (did I forget to review something? Am I blocking someone?), google docs/sheets, calendar, and maybe 10% of emails that come through my inbox. Monolist is great for my needs, and I donโ€™t know of any other product that pulls together all of my different work-mandated apps, and presents them to me in an efficient, intelligent way. When I first started using Monolist, it was hard to break my habit of switching between tabs to check the status of gmail, github, gcal, and google docs/sheets. I realized I wasnโ€™t just checking statuses inefficiently, but I was context switching and only half-finishing tasks, then forgetting about them once I got a ping or notification about something else that required my attention. Monolist saves me time, and unloads my brain a bit by keeping track of things Iโ€™d otherwise forget. Iโ€™m excited for the future of this product, and what other integrations/time-saving features it releases!

๐Ÿ‘‹ Hi PH! We're Scott, Jake, and Akshay โ€“ the co-founders of Monolist. We started Monolist after years of spending too much time managing work, and not enough time doing work. The number of tools we use every day has drastically increased, work is spread across so many places, and important tasks slip through the cracks. So we built something to bring it all together. Monolist is a global inbox that pulls in your most important tasks, pull requests, documents, and messages into one feed where you can search, or take action with full context. The "feedification" of work, driven by tools like Slack, forces us to make thousands of micro-decisions per day. Feeds are great for some things, like discovering important updates, but they're terrible to-do lists. We want to move away from a world dominated by notifications. We want to give you one list that tells you what you need to do across all the tools you use, with all of the context necessary to actually complete the tasks. Please send any feedback to me directly! akshay@monolist.co Akshay

@monolist @akshay_nathan Interesting! Is it a dev only approach or do you consider it applicable to other R&D personas such as product or design?

@cwehrung In the long-term, we want Monolist to be the place everyone starts their day at work. At the moment, we're tailoring the product primarily to engineers, who deal with a lot of information across tasks, pull requests, and alerts. However, Monolist can definitely be used by other roles, particularly for managing tasks, document comments, and alerts, in addition to providing a search layer across all the tools you use.

First impression, WOW! Then I noticed the price. Its super convenient but not for $240/year. If this was $3-5/month I could justify the cost against other paid subscriptions.

There's a high cost to time lost at work, particularly for software engineers. We have a two-week free trial, hopefully enough time to see if it's worth it to you! After the trial, you can take advantage of the Product Hunt discount. Let me know what you think!
