In 2020, Scoop, like many other companies, adapted to a changing work landscape. We recognized the challenges faced by hybrid employees and that the need for powerful planning tools had become more critical than ever.

Today, our dedication to supporting you remains consistent. You're not alone in pondering those oh-so-familiar questions, like  'Should I go to the office today?'' What if you had the knowledge of when and where to spend your workday making it less of a constant struggle?

It all starts with choosing your next office day

The work-from-home or office dilemma can be tricky. In-office days may mean endless Zoom meetings alone, while staying home may lead to missed opportunities for team collaboration. So how do you make the right choice to ensure your office days are both productive and rewarding?

With Scoop, you can have on-demand visibility for when teammates and co-workers are heading into the office, helping you to plan your next office day. What's even better is that work locations sync seamlessly across Slack, your calendar, and your phone, ensuring you have the information you need, wherever you are.

Find the upcoming office day that works for everyone

Planning a productive hybrid workday with co-workers can be a real headache when office plans are constantly up in the air—leaving you to question where, when, and how to do your best work.

With Scoop’s Office Interest Polls on Slack, you can quickly poll your co-workers to find the most convenient days for everyone and simplify the process with just a few clicks. Plus, you can confirm your office plans directly within Slack once you know what days work best.

It's a low-effort, high-reward move: what's not to love?
