Hey guys today we are launching TeamWatch πŸ˜€ Inspired by the time management OSX app, 'There', we decided to improve the functionality and include things like: βœ… Realtime Desktop status updates to team members βœ… Manage multiple teams/workspaces at once βœ… Quickly let your team members know what you are up to with status templates βœ… Track their local time Hope you find it useful!

@jamesstewart The main motivating factor was that there was no way to simplify communication without writing a block of text in a communication app like slack for simple messages and the requirement to join multiple remote teams at the same time, all of which we addressed with this app πŸ˜ƒ

This is such a great idea, but I really wish it used Slack's status instead of it's own. As it is it's a complete non-starter for our team: I'm not going to get 30+ people to use ANOTHER status system.

@joshpuetz You have a point, Josh. Maybe along the way we might decide to integrate slack as well. Thanks for the feedback πŸ˜ƒ

@joshpuetz I agree. Everyone in my team is already using Slack, and it would be challenging to move them to a new system. An integration with Slack is a must for next iteration.

Dinuka and Shehan are top notch makers who ship great products consistently. This latest launch is sure to be a hit between consulting agencies and small teams working remotely (the new remote work wave!). I can't wait to see how it grows, and I wish you all the best of luck. You have a great product in your hands!
