Ever find yourself suddenly needing to switch up work plans? As hybrid employees, we’ve all been there. Maybe you just found out your work bestie is showing up at the office tomorrow, or you've opted for a last-minute day of undisturbed work at home. Whether it's a spontaneous change of scenery or a planned shift in your work mode, the last thing you need is to commute all the way in just to find out no one else you work with did.

Scoop’s powerful planning tools make it fast and easy to update your office plans, no matter why or when you need to.

Manage your day-to-day schedule with Snapshots 

Looking to eliminate the uncertainty and last-minute curveballs in your workday? With Snapshots, you can easily manage your day-to-day schedule with personalized summaries delivered via Slack DM on a daily and/or weekly basis.

Snapshots include key details of your hybrid work schedule for both you and your co-workers including:

  • Your planned work location (In Office, Remote, OOO) and specific building
  • Your co-workers' locations, including Favorites and team members
  • Your Manager's work location
  • A summary of your upcoming meetings

Easily update plans from your existing tools 

Updating work plans can be a real pain – whether it's the time-consuming mandated workplace management platforms or dealing with a thousand Slack messages just to make sure everyone is on the same page. 

But with Scoop, you can effortlessly update your office plans to suit your needs, whether it's for a single day or the entire week. And you won’t need to be tied to your desk to make these changes. No matter if you’re using Slack, on the move with your phone, or simply using your web browser, you have the power to adjust your office plans to match your evolving schedule.

The best part? These updates are seamlessly synced in real-time across the whole Scoop platform. This means that regardless of if you're in the office or working remotely your team is always on the same page.
