Create a Slack poll via Standuply, a polling app for Slack. It can be a one-time or a recurring event on a schedule you define. Polls help Agile teams with checking their mood, estimating stories from a product backlog*, etc.
To create a poll, pick a schedule to run a slack poll for your team. It can be tied to any time zone or to each team member's local time. You select participants, customize poll questions and answers. Results can be posted anonymously.
On schedule, Standuply reaches out to selected people and surveys them in Slack. Once team members provide their inputs the bot aggregates them to serve overall charts with survey's results.
Results can be delivered to a Slack channel or via DM, email or Webhook. Slash commands soon to be present in Standuply. Automate regular surveys or run quick and simple polls with Standuply bot.
Manage Product Backlog using Slack Polls
Product Backlog is a prioritized list of all tasks that can be implemented to improve the product. It is never finished and exists until the Product development is in progress. Product Backlog is regularly updated and evolves with the product.
It's a Product Owner who is responsible for keeping the Product Backlog up to date. Product Backlog contains all the features, requirements, improvements and bugs. Each of those items gets a description and evaluation.
In case several teams are working on the same product, they should have and stick to the only Product Backlog. Quick polls made via Slack is a new way to manage Product Backlog and run software development process.
