"No, Olaph, I don't want a cookie"

What do you like best?

He work as well as can be expected for a scrum management system.

What do you dislike?

You can't edit the fields once they're inputted. He also is slightly snarky and always offers food as a good job. Personally, I'm not sure that's the best reward system.

"Hooty Hoo! "

What do you like best?

Olaph is the perfect tool for organizing our morning meetings with the team. The app is very effective in holding everyone accountable to submit content by a specified time. I enjoy how interactive and motivating the owl is in the mornings...the positive reinforcement really feels good.

What do you dislike?

I don't like how sarcastic and condescending Olaph's feedback/responses can be sometimes. That being said, this is apparently able to be customized

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using Olaph to solve our employee tendencies for chronic tardiness. Olaph does a great job getting everyone to the office on time, with a cookie in their hand.

Olaph is a fun way to aid in communication across the team by asking what helpful tasks you completed today and yesterday.

Better communication, task management, allow yourself to think ahead and plan out the day

"Kind of annoying"

What do you like best?

Olaph is consistent. Every day at 8am "he" (?) asks me what i'll be doing that day, which is great because it lets my team know and gives me a record of what I've worked on. Easy to see your team's daily availability and address blockers.

What do you dislike?

Olaph is kind if annoying. I don't like that I have to answer every question for it to be submitted.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Okay Olaph"

What do you like best?

Olaph is prompt in its reminders to answer your daily questions and filters them into a separate Slack very quickly. It's relatively easy to configure.

What do you dislike?

Olaph requires an answer to every question. Other similar products will submit answers that are still incomplete at the deadline and I prefer that option. This is really a personal quibble, though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Olaph to keep the team on the same page with daily task updates.

"A Good Scrum tool"

What do you like best?

Olaph helps me organize my day by reminding me in the morning to document what I did yesterday and what I plan on doing today.

What do you dislike?

There are some glitches when you go on vacation and come back. Olaph either forgets that you are on vacation or never brings you back.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are quickly and efficiently communicating with each other what we are doing that day. This helps our team stay organized

"Easy reminder to fill out our daily standup"

What do you like best?

Super simple, easy to customize, get's the job done.

What do you dislike?

It's annoying. As with most chatbots, it's not great at understanding what you tell it if you veer off track in the slack conversation. I wish I could set my own personal standup time, separate from the team. Notifications can be a bit much.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Olaph to coordinate our standup meetings asynchronously.

"Violently adequate."

What do you like best?

The questions are customizable. Olaph offers a cookie to me most days. Does exactly whats promised.

What do you dislike?

Set up isn't particularly easy. Responses are submitted right away rather than all at once, this causes double submissions if you update your answer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Defiantly worth the price tag.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to tell everyone what I'm doing today.
