Frequently Asked Questions

Why should my team use Dones?
Dones seeks to occupy only a small part of your effective day while still providing critical insight to a seemingly simple question: What has my team been working on lately? Its simple interface and tools provide you with the flexibility to organize your team’s activities as you see fit, without feeling like a chore.
How does Dones compare to other task tracking solutions?
Dones aims to solve a simple problem, and solve it well. While similar platforms share a common basic feature set, I frequently find that they underperform, suffer from reliability issues, and generally work as a barrier to productivity. Feeling blocked by these common frustrations, I sought to create a solution which targeted the workflow of the daily user, performing well and optimizing for bulk entry and review.
Does Dones integrate with other software I use?
Because it was built on the WordPress platform, Dones can take advantage of a rich ecosystem of plugins and core software functionality to fit seamlessly into your existing workflow. The wiki includes recipes for common integrations, such as a Slack slash command, Alfred workflow, or terminal command.
