Write effective updates to projects, goals, and topics

Projects, goals, and topics are purposefully built to keep teams in sync. It's one of the key reasons updates are limited to 280 characters. These tweet-sized updates save everyone time and engage in ways that status meetings can’t.

Keep it short and make your points with emoji

Constrain updates to a brief handful of bullets focused on progress, newly uncovered risks, or major blockers. Focus on outcomes over outputs. Bullet your points with emoji to add emphasis, and keep within that character limit.

Progressively disclose additional information

Let stakeholders dive into the details if and when they need them with Smart Links to pages, issues, and more. Add extra context in the update itself with card and embedded views.

Share date changes regularly

Share the latest date and status, early and often. Include why in your update.

Use video and images

A picture tells 1,000 words. Leverage rich media to provide more engaging detail.

Drive action

Flag clear asks in your updates and celebrate wins frequently.
