Today a lot of companies use Slack to manage their work activities. It is usually the place where people discuss their projects and the work flows continuously. During the day there can be dozens of messages, tasks and things that need to be done. And this is especially true if there are several channels – the number of messages can become so huge, that sometimes the important tasks can easily be lost in all the flood of things to do.
To prevent this, ToDoBot was created. ToDoBot is a productivity and task management app that can help track all the tasks without leaving Slack. It works perfectly with the tasks that are too small to be tracked using the “heavy” task management systems. Now you don’t have to constantly switch between different apps in order to keep track of the tasks. All of them can be found in one place – in Slack.
