Within Teamwork, you can update your status as a way of letting other people know what you're working on, or a quick note of whether you're in office or going to be away from your desk for a while.


Viewing status updates

Go to the People area of your site and select the Statuses subsection.

You can switch between two views in the Statuses area:

  • Overview - showing a card-style view of updates with the most recent in the top left.
  • Timeline - showing a vertical list of updates with the most recent at the top.



Updating your status
 
You can update your status using the Update My Status button in the top right of the Statuses area.

You will be reminded of your last update, and you can add a new one in the text area, with the option to @mention a particular user by name to notify them of your update, or mention @all to send a notification to everyone in your company. You can also enable the toggle to notify everyone in your company.

Note: The status feature is only available for people in the owner company and is limited to seven separate lines of text totaling 160 characters.



Requesting a team member's status

You can also request status updates from individual users, in the Overview tab of the Statuses area.

Click the arrow to the bottom right of the user's status card and select the option to request status.
