Create a daily reminder for Slack or Microsoft Teams

I'm debating whether if I should create email notifications for the daily vote or not. Personally, I find email notifications of this type a bit too intrusive. Plus, geo-location notifications are a huge pain to develop. Maybe in the future? In the meantime ...

Something more appropriate would be to get a notification on Slack, Microsoft Teams, or other similar platforms. I recommend creating a reminder for 16:30 or 17:00, the end of your workday.

How to create a daily reminder on Slack

Copy and Paste the following line anywhere in the message box on Slack.

/remind #TypeChannelNameHere @channel Hey team, how do you feel today? Vote now on every weekday at 16:30

  1. Replace #TypeChannelNameHere with the channel where you want the daily reminder to show.
  2. You can change the message straight after the channel name
  3. You can change the time at the end

You can create a maximum of 10 groups. It would be hard to keep track of more than 6-7 groups anyway ... ... or could you? 🙃

The current limit is 100. We are working on increasing this number in the near future.
