It's incredible how much time we spend on pointless meetings per week. If we were to free up those hours, we would certainly have more time to do actual work. Updates in Bloo allow your team to do daily or weekly check-in without hosting a meeting; It helps your team stay updated to progress and see what everyone's up to.

What Update Does.

  • Replaces unnecessary update meetings.
  • Keeps everyone on the same page with progress.
  • Gets a glimpse of what that introverted coworker is working on - without secretly stalking them.

Bloo's Updates in a nutshell.

Aside from replacing update meetings, Bloo's update feature is special in every other ways.

As simple as posting a Facebook status.

If you've posted a status on a social media channel, you'd know how simple it is. Bloo's Update is that simple! Your updates will be deeply appreciated by your coworkers, and you don't even have to participate in a meeting for that.

Express your feelings - because why not. 😎

Besides from having emojis embedded in your updates, you can also choose your emoji of the day. Let your coworkers know whether you're feeling awesome, just okay, or stuck with something; You'll find a supportive team just a few comments away.

Participate in a supportive culture.

Through commenting kudos on a coworker's post of what they've accomplished today, you are showing support and encouragement for that person. You are also allowed to say thank you or you're welcome when the situation calls for it.
