Workplace communication has gotten faster. And yet, it’s no easier.

Keeping up means staying constantly connected in never-ending chat discussions, email chains, and comment threads. You chase your work across dozens of different tools as notifications, alerts and pings pour in. You make decisions, then realize the right people didn’t weigh in. You meet and meet again. You share and learn but have precious little time to capture — let alone act on — the outcomes.

We’re talking more (way more!), but we aren’t always doing more. It’s time we rethink the way we’re working. We believe that teams can stay connected and keep moving forward.

Introducing a new way to talk, meet, decide, and do

Today we’re launching Stride, Atlassian’s complete team communication solution. With Stride, we are redefining how people everywhere work together, enabling teams to take action together and giving you time to focus on the things that matter most.

With Stride, you’re able to:

  • Bring all the right people together instantly with built-in voice and video meetings
  • Turn conversations into action with integrated collaboration tools
  • Find the space to focus so you can get to done faster

Connect with anyone, anywhere with Meetings

We all know the all-too-familiar pain of trying to jump on a 5-minute call with people you’re already chatting with — and that same call taking 15 minutes to set up. But face-to-face conversations are a critical way of moving your work forward.

That’s why we built Meetings into Stride. Now you can take any discussion from keyboard to camera in less time than it takes to type 🙌🏼 . All of your team members are instantly notified and you’ll have the full context of the conversation you were just having.

Use whatever works best for your discussion — one-to-one video, voice calling, screen sharing, and remote control access, across all of your devices. If you need to add another person to the call, with one click, they’re right there with you.

Best of all? Group video is absolutely free, for all teams.

All of your voice and video conferencing needs, handled ✅

You’re always just one tap away from connecting directly with anyone you work with, inside your company and out.

Move things forward with Actions and Decisions

The free-form nature of group chat lends itself well to free-flowing conversations. But often you find yourself circling the same discussions with your teammates with no tangible outcomes, sending work into a tailspin. And when something critical does get decided, it’s difficult to remember where and how it happened — or it gets buried in the endless conveyor belt of your chat.

Stride Actions and Decisions solve this chatting dilemma. Isolate important outcomes by marking any message as an Action or Decision. Rather than getting buried in your message history, all Actions and Decisions live neatly in your sidebar, accessible anytime. You’ll never be out of the loop on key decisions, even if you’re out of office.

Learn, share, decide, do, and move forward. It’s like having a built-in tl;dr for every conversation.

Jump back to the conversational context of any past decision in your summary view.

Dive into deep work with Focus Mode

If your team is anything like ours, you live with a near constant thrum of pings, notifications, messages, and alerts. It’s distracting and noisy, and yet stepping away means you might miss something critical.

But what if your messaging product let you — or even encouraged you — to unplug?

Stride’s Focus Mode makes it simple to step away from the noise and focus on your work. With one click, Focus Mode mutes all your notifications and incoming messages and lets your team know you’re heads down. Forget noise-canceling headphones, we got you a personal productivity bodyguard.

Once you’re back, Stride surfaces your most important messages, Actions and Decisions when and how you want them. No FOMO here.

With Focus Mode, you’re personally empowered to unplug when needed 🎧
