Discord Project management sounds like an impossible goal. We have many sophisticated tools for project management. But sometimes, we need to get things done and stay focused. How do we keep project management simple and focused on the actual work directly in Discord?

Since the COVID-19 pandemic, many teams migrate from Slack to Discord as their team communication tool.

And even if you are just by yourself, keeping your work structure and focus is vital for the success of your career.

Here’s how the Orli Scrum bot helps with Project Management directly in Discord:

  • Orli connects to the project management of your choice: Trello,, Jira, GitLab, GitHub, YouTrack so you can see your tasks directly in Discord
  • Every morning Orli will ping you to report you Daily — it’s a way to stay on top of your work:
  • While reporting your Daily, you mark with ToDo 🚀the tasks you aim to achieve on that day (ONLY).
  • The next day (on the following daily), see if you’ve done what you aimed to mark with Done ✅ the tasks that you have completed the day before.
  • If you have work in progress, mark it with 🛠.
  • After reporting your Daily, take 1 by 1 the tasks from your Discord To-do 🚀 list and execute them.
  • To stay focused, ask Orli to follow up with you when your task suppose to be done (when estimation time expires). Use the command !orli-task-follow TASK_ID
  • Every week Orli sends a summary of what you worked on the previous week automatically.
