The 2018 Shift Year-End Review


Olivia Scholes

Marketing Associate - 12 Dec, 2018


Well 2018, it is a wrap.

In honor of the year coming to a close, we’re throwing it back to when the year was new, and Shift was much different than it is now. It was a simpler time, with only 24 apps and two extensions. Cut to December 2018, and things get a bit more (app)ealing. ;)

In the span of one year, we have increased our app feature integration with almost 500 new additions to the Apps Directory.  

For the first half of the year, Slack held the coveted top spot in our library. But, as we continued to add more apps, we saw Facebook Messenger slowly overtaking Slack as #1.  

2018 year in review- top apps added.

2018 in Numbers

As you might have guessed by now, we’re total data nerds here at Shift. We enjoy taking a deep dive into the data to uncover insights and make better decisions. This year, more than ever, we have seen our community continue to grow and evolve. Most importantly, we have seen a rise in overall productivity and engagement, and we are honored to be at the center of your workday.

This year, the Shift Boss Community

2018 year in review- average hours saved per week. 2018 year in review- average account switches per day. 2018 year in review- percentage of users who prefer Dark Theme to Light Theme.

Top Boss Breakdown

We also wanted to give an honorable mention to our Top Bosses. These are your fellow Shift Bosses taking productivity to the next level, and frankly, we’re very impressed.

Drum roll, please.

The award for most productive email Boss goes to the person with 118 accounts.

But wait, we have one question. How did you survive without us?

Most of us here at Shift manage a ton of different app accounts, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t shocked by this one.

A huge shout-out to the Shift Boss who added 66 apps!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

Lastly, we couldn’t leave without thanking you, our loyal Shift community, for making our 2018 one for the books. We look forward to serving you in 2019 and beyond, and we can’t wait to share what’s in store in the New Year.

Until then, best wishes for a happy, healthy, and productive holiday season!
