Weekdone has always focused on integrating with the work tools you already use. Recently, we started receiving feedback that using Weekdone through Slack could be more practical. So we decided to do something about it!

We interviewed a number of Slack & Weekdone users to see what exactly they needed out of our Slack integration. Based on this feedback, we are streamlining the two systems to save you time and make updating your team even easier. 

You can now access and update your Weekly Check-ins and OKRs directly from Slack! We also added new reminder and notification options to keep you on track with your Check-ins and OKRs so you won’t miss a thing.

What our Improved Slack Integration Enables You to Do

View and update your Weekly Check-ins and OKRs

With our new commands /weekdone checkins and /weekdone okr, you can access the list of your Weekly Check-ins and company, team, or personal OKRs right in Slack any time you want. You can also comment on your plans and OKRs to add some context on their status and move plans to progress when they are done. All this without navigating to Weekdone.

Weekly check-ins Slack & Weekdone

Add your plans, progress or problems for the week

With just a few clicks, you can easily add weekly items directly from Slack to Plans, Progress, Problems, or any other categories your company or team is using. Type in /weekdone create to get started.

Set-up periodic reminders to update your plans and OKRs

You can opt in to receive regular reminders in Slack so you are always in the know when someone assigns, comments, or likes an item you are involved in. You will also get a daily reminder to update your plans and notifications when they are due or overdue. Use /weekdone settings to turn on these notifications and reminders.

Read all your Weekdone newsfeed updates right in Slack

To stay better informed with what your co-workers are doing and what’s happening in your organization, add company, department, or team newsfeed to any Slack channel you need. Go to the appropriate channel and type in /weekdone newsfeed to set it up.

Get notified when the weekly check-ins report is ready

As part of the notifications you receive, you will now also receive a notification when your weekly check-ins report is compiled and ready at the end of the week. It’s a good moment to sit back, relax and recap all your team’s achievements for this week!
