Simple, beautiful, private publishing for your team.

Jotto gives groups a private place to share mid-to-long form content. It is used to align teams, to share thoughts across a company, to externalize progress, or simply to create a safe place to think out loud.

We found Jotto to be invaluable as a tool to bring together various points of view, create a meaningful discussion, and form clear, shared understanding.

Some of our design principles.

  • The written word brings people together.
  • When people can share ideas in private, rather than public, they will be more open and less stressed.
  • Treat everyone equally. Everyone can contribute, and everyone can listen.
  • It is better to build a simple, focused tool that does one thing well, than a broad tool that does many things only adequately.
  • Jotto is designed for mid-to-long form content.
  • We don't want to disrupt or interrupt. A good tool does not shatter productivity but enhances it.

A simple and straightforward tool that gets the job done. No bloat, just effectiveness.

We call ourselves the “shared understanding” company.

What is shared understanding?

It is about aligning the team around essentials: the who, what, where, how and why of your work. It is about building clarity while valuing different perspectives. It is about giving everyone a voice while still enabling leadership to lead. Jotto is about telling stories. Not from us to you. From you to you.
