Luminous PR reviews Donut Slack app for Real Business

We’re in Real Business magazine! Check out our review of Donut Slack app…

Did you spot our feature in Real Business‘s “I tried” column? Every month, they publish reviews of productivity tools, hacks, or products. We tried Donut – an app that integrates with Slack and encourages team members to catch up over a tea, coffee, or even a donut.

As you may already know, we’re a small team, with colleagues spread across London and the South-East. Several of us work from home at least part of the week, which provides essential flexibility with childcare and other responsibilities. However, it means we have to be proactive about keeping in touch with the rest of the team.

The Donut Slack app helps a lot. Each week, Donut randomly pairs up the team and suggests you go for coffee, or get together for a chat. The app automatically creates a new conversation in Slack for paired colleagues to discuss plans for their “Donut date”.
