As we all know, it’s very rare to find a product that makes you stop and be like “This is awesome. Where has this been all my life!?” I’ve been using Tonkean daily for the the past 6 months, and am addicted. As a product marketing manager I work very cross-functionally and have always struggled with where and how to track and organize all the different things I work on. I’ve tried lots of task management, project management, and collaboration tools, but always ended up back in sticky notes, docs, spreadsheet, and calendar reminders to follow up. Tonkean changed this. While docs and spreadsheets are still useful for somethings of course, I now manage everything in Tonkean — my “worklist” of projects and action items, 1-1s with my boss, cross-functional campaigns, and success of key customers I’m working with. Tonkean allows me to pull in data from all different sources (which used to be manual) so I have a view of the key metrics I care about. It also automatically gathers the status of items at the right time from the relevant owner, and provides visibility of all updates and changes in Slack or via email. Oh! And did I mention it reminds me of things I wrote down but may have forgotten about? I could go on and on, but moral of the story is: get it, play with it, and I promise you’ll love it!

Pros:

It's incredibly flexible, easy to use, and helps you manage / stay on top of all aspects of your work - from to dos, to follow up, to KPIs.

Cons:

It can be a bit overwhelming at first, as there are so many options for how to use it. It's important to know what you want to do / track.

Do agree, it rarely happens that an app is wow, yes, gotta have it. Especially like the feature you also pointed out, the reminder, when a busy day is ahead, this is really helpful. Will try out more.
Hello Product Hunters, Thanks for stopping by, and @benln for the hunt! Tonkean came to us in a moment of inspiration. After years of leading large-scale projects and teams using the most common and powerful management tools, we realized that they were all missing the same thing - context. There was no simple, automatic way to gather both the key data and the human insight we needed to ensure projects were (actually) running smoothly. There’s this disconnect in the business world. There are tools teams use every day to do their work - think Salesforce and Jira. And, there are the high-level dashboards and reports managers use to track and manage goals. And, then there’s the stuff that only sits inside people’s heads and notebooks - the context. Each lives in its own universe, and are used among different teams and discrete processes. We end up spending a lot of time manually chasing information to make sense of what is going on: digging through emails, maintaining spreadsheets, and having meetings… and more meetings! Tonkean fixes that. It connects the dots between people and data, automates the process around it, and puts everything in one place. By doing this, Managers are able to make smarter decisions and take quicker action without needing to micromanage. These are some of my favorite parts: - No new process needed. Team interactions happen within Slack or email. - No need to replace my current stack. We integrate with 1000+ tools. - No structural limitations. As flexible as documents or spreadsheets, but without the pain of keeping them updated. - It’s smart. It knows to alert me and remembers to follow up with the team - even if I forget. - It has everything I (personally) care about all in one place. And, the best thing? No more nagging. No more missed deadlines. Have a look and let us know what you think. I’m here to answer any questions! We look forward to your feedback. 🙂 P.S. - We love Product Hunt!

This product has huge potential! We've been testing it during beta and believe that it can actually help us get a ton of visibility into what's happening in our systems. As a distributed team, the ability to not just get data from systems but rather from people's "heads" is the killer feature for me. Looking forward to deploying it soon.

@oudiantebi thanks! you are spot on. Without the context, it's hard to make data actionable. Tonkean is perfect for distributed teams and cross-functional projects. It allows to not only create one central place with all the key data from different tools but also automatically follow up on action items and help make sure things are executed as expected.

Thanks @iris_ben_david - I’m glad you think so! we love our Slack bot :) While other bots are mostly used as just another interface to pull or search information, Tonkean Bot proactively reach out to you to help following up on action items and handle important changes in data. It becomes part of your day-to-day natural flow (and even part of the team)!

We have been using Tonkean since before it was in Beta. It has shortened our Weekly Delivery Meetings by providing an easy way to bring in Data from Jira and Salesforce and review instead of transposing data into a new format.

The ability to integrate into Slack and gather updates where our Delivery Team already is has been a game changer. It keeps everyone from asking status and allows people to just work and provide updates when prompted. If I need an update out of cycle, I can use Tonkean to prompt for it.

Tonkean has been critical for our team to grow. It has provided insight to our leadership at the right level as needed.

Pros:

Great Dashboard, easy to view Enterprise wide dashboard

Cons:

Takes some time to set up and configure
