Leverage channel messages for seamless orientation and team building.
You can configure GreetBot to post a welcome message whenever someone joins a channel in your Slack workspace. Use it for team building or to provide contextual information about one or more channels.

GreetBot configured to post a channel message.
To add a new channel message configuration go to the Message Schedule page and select “Add channel message” at the top of the page.
Follow these steps:
To make the best use of channel messages focus on the following:
When you invite new members to your workspace they automatically join their default channels, even before they accept their invitations. If configured in those channels, GreetBot will wait until your new teammates actually accept their invites, before posting your welcome message. You may therefore see people “joining” your default channels but not receiving their welcome messages right away. The moment they finish setting up their accounts, though, GreetBot will post your greeting as planned.
Channel messages are available on all subscription plans. To configure multiple channels you will need a paid subscription. Visit our Pricing page for detailed information on availability and pricing. Contact us at [email protected] if you have any questions.
