Slackbot is always willing to help, whether it's through a direct message (DM) or in a channel with your teammates. You can use Slackbot to add customized automatic responses or access personal reminders and tasks.
Note: It's not possible to turn off all notifications from Slackbot. If you're having trouble with too many messages or custom responses, reach out to an owner or admin for help.
Add customized automatic responses
You and your teammates can add a variety of custom responses to use in channels. When members use your chosen unique words and phrases, Slackbot will respond.
For example, some workspaces add a custom response to help people remember the office Wi-Fi password. You can even use emoji or image links — images will expand inline when Slackbot responds. All of your created responses will be labeled as custom response in Slack.
Note: Custom Slackbot responses occur in channels and in your personal DM, but not in DMs with other members.
Access personal reminders and tasks
When you've set a reminder for yourself, Slackbot will be the one to alert you.
To set a reminder, you can use the /remind command — it works anywhere in Slack (even on mobile too!).
If you see something in Slack that you want to save for later — like an interesting message, file, or conversation, perhaps — click the More actions icon, hover over Remind me about this and choose when you’d like Slackbot to remind you about the message.
