Indeed we use it a lot. Meetings is a waste of time if its goal can be achieved naturally. We used to have meetings every morning, but structuring, automation, regular responsibilities, and truly connected information eliminated our need for what regular meetings we did have.
We do not use any other tools project/task tracking, aside from emailing and MS Teams for communication. 5 of 6 work in the same open space, and we would delegate tasks on post-it notes, verbally, or over Teams messages. Despite what you may think, it worked and stuff was getting done—but problem was that we had to rely on the person assigned to know overall status.
Everything we do relies on projects. A customer can have multiple projects as we run a photostudio that only deliver physical products. We take the photos, edit, print, assemble, and send all in-house, in addition to other bespoke solutions that goes with it. Sometimes we have to use a third party for certain prints and foiling, and we have to order raw materials. Everything and every step is tracked in Fibery.
Now we are more focused on delegating regular responsibilities over the progression of a product. There are sometimes tasks given verbally or over Teams, but we do have a generic tasks board that is getting more and more used.
Some of us track time on everything we do, down to the minute, using Fibery buttons, lookups, and single select. I’m trying to eliminate as much manual labour and manual checking as possible.
In regards to our communication with each other, exact timestamp is irrelevant most of the time. “5m” and “Nov. 7” suffice.
