Hey all, I created Standup Jack to help me plan my day and keep my teammates in the loop. Here's how Jack works: Each weekday at a time of your choosing, Jack will message you a few questions. These questions will help you stay on track and let the rest of your team know what you're up to. Then at noon (PST) each weekday, Jack will post everyone's update to the #standup channel. That's all there is to it. I'd love to hear what you think!

@mattmueller Nicely done, Matt! I noticed your third question (when will you be done?) differs from the typical one I've seen used in standups, which is usually 'What's blocking you from making progress right now?'. Any particular reason for the question you chose to use here? It would be interesting to swap out what question(s) the bot asks.

@joostschuur Thanks for thoughts! So that's actually the last question: "is there anything blocking you?" I cut it from the screenshot for simplicity, but you're the second person that's asked about that, so I think I'll add it back in :-) Yes, being able to customize the questions and where you can post are the next steps on the roadmap :-)
