Automatic check-ins go out to your team on a regular basis. You can send them daily, weekly, or monthly. Everyone in the Project or on the Team or Company HQ Site can see the responses. Automatic check-ins keep teams up to date, and help your users get to know each other better.
At Basecamp, we use automatic check-ins to find out what everyone is up to. Every day, we ask people what they're working on, and what they had for lunch. Once a week, we ask people to take a picture of what they look like that day. Every other Monday, we ask people to share a good recipe. Once a month, we ask what people are reading, because who doesn't need a recommendation for a good book?
