No need to create accounts for your team members - busybot will discover them directly from Slack. As soon as busybot is connected you can start assigning tasks to people immediately.
Busybot keeps a list of tasks for every Slack channel. Plus, private channels get private task lists which are only visible to channel members.
Starting a new project? As soon as it gets it's own channel to discuss in Slack, it's got a list of tasks in busybot. New staff get access as soon as they get on to slack.
Simply tag @busybot in any message, and busybot will start tracking it as a task.
Want to assign @simone? Just tag @busybot and @simone, and busybot will assign her to the task (and also send her a direct message to let her know)

With every task, busybot gives you a link, where you can view details and add more information including:
When you have tasks due, @busybot will send you a brief morning report directly in Slack (at a time of your choosing). This report is customizable, and as an example of things you can include:
Busybot notifies your channel when a task is completed, or when it falls due. Plus, busybot will send you a direct message to keep you up to date with anything assigned to you.
And because all notifications are sent to Slack - busybot won't send any annoying emails!
You can send anything you like to busybot in a direct message, and busybot will add it to your own todo list. Easy!
And, you never need to remember a username or password to access busybot - simply login via Slack.
