Daily Journal


The daily journal is a core part of how we work at Dendron. Every team member has a daily journal note located at user.{username}.journal.{date} which captures what we're working on for the day.


Daily journals let us keep everyone up to date without generating unecessary noise. The information for what everyone is working on is systematically structured for every individual, free for anyone to check up or check in with.

The Discussion section lets team members raise blockers or issues that won't get lost in a chat session. Managers (or team mates) can then respond, usually in an discord thread which the whole team can chime in on (if needed).


  1. At the beginning of the day, create a daily journal note using the standard template
    • NOTE: an explanation of each section can be found ihere
  2. At the end of the day, make any final updates to the daily journal for the current day
