Customize Your Status

Daycast broadcasts your status to your teammates via the User Panel. You can let the app select your status based on your actions within it, or you can customize your status manually to communicate more targeted information about what you're doing. We'll show you how here.

First, we'll look at the default updates in action. Then we'll walk through how to override them (it couldn't be easier).

Default Status Updates

The status text beneath your name updates automatically to reflect your actions within the app. Clocked into a task titled Check email? Your status becomes Check email. Clocked out of all tasks but not Out? Your status becomes Away. Once you've hit Out in the Status Bar, your status updates to Out. No effort is required on your part. Daycast will do all of this for you.

All you need do is clock in and out as you work through your day, and Daycast will take care of letting your team know what you're doing.

Manual Status Updates

To customize your status, simply click in the status text strip and type whatever you like.

We recommend letting Daycast do the bulk of the work while manually updating when it suits you. That way you can communicate clearly with your team with minimal effort.
