Slack Reminders

Simple Reminders to setup in Slack

Slack is trending to be the most popular communication tool for companies. Knowing some basic commands can help make communicating information a lot easier. This can help getting the most out of Slack.

Slack Personal reminders are a practical way for QA to stay on top of communicating messages - such as Code Freeze Reminders, Stand-up or sending out the weekly release notes.

Frequent Future reminders are a good way for you to take a step back - such as a self performance reminder. Don't wait for review time to put together your self review, set up a reminder so that you can record the excellence that you do now. Chances are you may forget them six months from now.

In your "Direct Message" slack channel, setup the following reminder:

/remind me "Take note on some personal excellence that you did in the past couple of weeks." every other Thursday at 4:00pm
/remind me "Take note on some personal excellence that you did in the past month." on November 1 at 4:00pm

/remind me "Take note on some personal excellence that you did in the past month." on February 1 at 4:00pm
/remind me "Take note on some personal excellence that you did in the past month." on April 1 at 4:00pm
