Geekbot templates shorten the time it takes to build customizable workflows for automated, recurring, or ad-hoc communication and task workflows. The Blockers Report template is a pre-built workflow in the Geekbot platform designed to help teams identify and resolve obstacles that are hindering their progress.
The Blockers Report template provides a structured format for team members to share their current challenges, ask for help, and propose solutions. Configure the workflow settings, such as the schedule, the participating team members, and the public or private channel in which Geekbot will broadcast updates. This is an on-demand (or scheduled if you prefer) report that helps the team members answer prompts such as How are you blocked?, Is there anyone who can help you? (use @mentions) or you can customize your own.
Geekbot templates are pre-built workflows based on best practices, helping you get set up in seconds. Using the Blockers Report template helps speed up the resolution of issues and improves accountability in your team.
