I’m Udi, a developer from Israel.
I’m working on doneli.st for the last few months, and it reached a point where I really want to hear your thoughts on this.
DoneList allows teams (both remote and in-house) to stay up-to-date with what everyone is doing. It also takes into account timezone difference.
DoneList sends an email in the morning to everyone showing a digest of what was done yesterday by all team members. In 5pm it sends another email to request an update from everyone (for tomorrow’s digest).
You can also send emails during the day whenever you finish something.
The digest is not the usual digest many web-apps offer (links to tickets, summery of commit messages…).
DoneList allows you to define what is more important to you, and what is not. If Joe from marketing waits for development team to finish a feature, in the digest he’ll see more about that, than for example what sysops have done.
I think this way a digest can actually serve its purpose, be more productive and not something people just ignore overtime.
What do you think about it?
Is the message in my landing page clear?
How good the bootstrapped app should be designed?
That’s what I’ve got so far, I really want to make it nicer but I’m not a designer. Do you think its good enough for the first few users?
