Frequently Asked Questions

What is this?

Let's Do is an add-on for the popular group communication platform Slack. The app adds the functionality to create, assign and manage to-dos within Slack. It can be a lightweight companion to an existing task management system or your main one depending of your use case. Each channel in your Slack workspace can be set up as a list of to-dos.

The underlining idea is that, as Slack has become the ”operating system” and a well-known shared workspace for many organizations over the last years, it makes sense to also use Slack as the interface for managing tasks within an organization. As channels are the natural context in Slack for conversations, this is also make channels a sensible context for to-dos.
