    Pros
    The interface is incredibly easy to use and the onboarding/setup was super clean. I have used other players in the space like Standuply and felt somewhat overwhelmed with functionality.

    Alex B.

    We love its simplicity and the way it helps teams organize between themselves and their everyday tasks. Standup is an amazing feature.

    Overall, geekbot increases positive peace in my workplace through daily prompts that boost productivity and encourage remote communication.

    Cons
    Constant reminder from geek bot can be annoying. Sometimes updates are ignored on slack, but that an issue with the teamwork culture, not the UI.

    LM

    Luis Miguel R.

    It failed once or twice throughout our whole usage which caused some questions to be delivered late, but those were only small glitches.

    BK

    Batikan K.

    You can type anything for the questions, but you can't customize/translate some parts of the app (such as settings and reminders, unless I'm missing something).

    A less intrusive team check-in for remote teams that's easy to use

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    Geekbot allows for us to have more regular check-ins and stand-up meetings with employees on a remote team. Being on a remote team is quite lonely at times and having Geekbot be a non-committal daily check-in really helps us stay on the same page with our team. The other reports are interesting and I'm excited to collect more datapoints over-time to get a nice gauge on how the team is feeling as a whole.

    Pros

    The interface is incredibly easy to use and the onboarding/setup was super clean. I have used other players in the space like Standuply and felt somewhat overwhelmed with functionality. Geekbot has a far better UI/UX and reporting process. We have found our home with Geekbot.

    Cons

    That there is no free tier. We are a small team and many of their competitors have a free tier for small teams. It has gotta be tough competing with that, but they are definitely taking a step in the right direction with their simplicity and superior UX. I do wish that you could default the manual "report" check-in functionality as we have a daily check-in and a bi-weekly retrospective. 99.9% of the time you are going to do the daily check-in manually by typing "report", but it has you select which of the 2 reports you want to report on.

    Easy, quick and just what we needed

    Reviewed a year ago
    Pros

    So easy to deploy, manage and customize to our needs, this is exactly what we needed in this pandemic. We are now 9 people working remotely and Geekbot just makes things so easier for us in this context. Slack integration is as easy as it is a lifesaver!

    Cons

    We've only tested the basic features but are priced for the full thing. Segmented pricing options would be great for small startups like ourselves, maybe?

    Vendor response

    Thanks for letting us know how we can improve Mathieu :) It's always nice to get some real feedback!

    Geekbot is now a must-have for our Stand ups!

    Reviewed a month ago

    Overall, we were struggling to work as a remote team, but Geekbot saved the team spirit. It’s very simple to set up and use, thanks to its customizable features. It allows our team to keep track of what everyone is working on on a daily basis. Also very useful when we run Scrum, Agile methodologies for our projects.

    Pros

    Increases our team’s engagement A good overview of people’s daily activities. It allows you to keep track of tasks.

    Cons

    It’s difficult to find any cons when it’s that user friendly and customizable.

    Simple to use, Easy to "Break"

    Reviewed a year ago
    Pros

    Integration with Slack is incredibly useful and simple. Keeps myself as well as my team up to date with progress.

    Cons

    If I forget to post a response for a check-in and decide to do that the next day before the check-in time, I will not be prompted for a response. Geekbot should ask for a response exactly as scheduled and should not depend on whether you've given a response that day or not.

    Vendor response

    Thanks for taking the time to provide us with some feedback on Geekbot :) If you are referring to reminders for your standup, then you can easily set them up from your dashboard under the My Preferences section inside the standup of your choice. Feel free to reach out in order further understand the case here and hopefully we can resolve this asap!

    Great for asychronous daily stand-ups

    Reviewed 21 days ago
    Pros

    With a distributed dev team in different time zones we found this was a better way to do our daily stand-ups.

    Cons

    Works as advertised. My only challenge has been getting a 100% rate... but that's my problem, not Geekbot's ;)

    Vendor response

    Really appreciated your feedback Daniel, means a lot to the team here :)
