If you’ve ever tried to coordinate office plans with your hybrid co-workers, it probably looked a little something like this: 

RIP your Slack notifications 💀.

Instead of trying to keep track of everyone’s preferences, Scoop’s Office Polls streamlines the entire process for you. From gathering interest in an easily digestible format to highlighting the most popular office day—you’ll even be able to confirm your office plans without leaving Slack. 

Creating an Office Interest Poll 

Once you’ve added Scoop to your Slack workspace (tip: only one person in your org needs to do this for everyone to have access), you can easily create your first office poll in any channel by selecting Launch Poll from the Home tab. Simply choose the week you are polling for, and that’s it.

See the most popular office day

Once posted, channel members can indicate as many planned or preferred in-office days that work. You’ll see tallied summaries as responses come in with details on how individual co-workers answered.

Once everyone has a chance to respond, simply close the poll, and Scoop will highlight the “most popular day(s)” for the office that week. If more than one day works (a good problem to have!), Scoop will automatically include those days to make it easier for you to decide.

You can also select View All Responses to see who answers for a specific day. This can be helpful if you’re looking for more options for specific people vs. the majority. 

Confirm your office plans in one click

You’ve polled co-workers, found the best days, and now it’s time to confirm your plans. Instead of leaving Slack to go update your calendar, Scoop can handle it right from where you are.

Select the option to confirm the day(s) that work, set your work location to Office, and click Submit to confirm. Scoop will automatically apply your work location across the rest of the Scoop platform, including Chrome, iOS or Android, and Edge. This way, everyone has instant visibility into your work plans.

And if anything should change (that’s hybrid work, after all), you can instantly update your work location in Slack with the /scoop command. And, you guessed it, we’ll sync it instantly across the platform and your calendar in real time.

Your next great office day is waiting

Going back and forth to find time together is so 2022. Nothing should stand in the way of seeing your co-workers in person when you want. And now, with Scoop’s Office Polls, nothing will. Ready to try it out for yourself? Download the Scoop Slack app for free to launch your first poll and find that perfect day to get together in person.
