Why I decided to work on Gleebeam
At the company where I work TV dashboard notifications have been used to celebrate important events and to keep the team informed. For instance, when we launched a new product, we wanted to play a sound in the office every time a purchase of the product was made.
These notifications weren't easy to set up and the set-up was also fairly insecure - we used a Chrome extension that played a sound whenever a Shopify order confirmation email was received in Gmail. Later on we wanted to play different sounds for different products but that was too painful to set up. Long story short, I got inspired by this use-case and am now exploring it with Gleebeam!
What my plan for the product is
I'd first like to target the product at companies that are already familiar with tools like Zapier and feel comfortable with setting up some simple webhooks there.
I'd like the TV dashboard notifications to have both visual and sonic elements. Sounds can get really annoying so users would have to have an option to just, for example, display a GIF when something important happens.
In the future Gleebeam could support setting of milestones for notifications to gamify the experience a bit more. E.g. users could set up a milestone "I want to aim for receiving this notification 10 times per day" and then these daily combos could be displayed on the Gleebeam dashboard.
