Everything you need to know about one of GreetBot’s most fun features.
In addition to posting your own, custom channel messages you can also select from GreetBot’s built-in message packs — Welcome Themes. The idea is simple: you pick a theme and each time someone joins a designated channel GreetBot welcomes them with a random message from that theme.
For example, if you pick the Hollywood theme, GreetBot will welcome new members using quotes from cinema classics like “May the Force be with you @amy 💫” or “Live long and prosper @jimmy🖖” And if you pick the Globetrotter theme, GreetBot will say hello in different languages, like “Sawadi Kap @quincy 🇹🇭” or “Ohayo @hailey 🇯🇵”
Alrighty! What channel would you like me to post your message to?
Okay! Now pick a welcome theme that you would like to use in #general. You can type:
Hollywood — to use quotes from great cinema classics
Rockstar — to use lyrics from hit songs
Winnie — to use quotes from Winnie the Pooh
Globetrotter — to use greetings from around the world
Mixer — to use a mix of greetings from all themes
Custom — to write your own welcome message
Tip: Themes help you to create a simple and fun onboarding experience 🤹 Use the custom option if you’d like to get creative 😃
You can use GreetBot’s welcome themes to have some fun with your team.
As such Welcome Themes give you the ability to greet new joiners with a different message each time. They help you to draw the attention of existing team members to each new joiner in a simple yet playful way, making the onboarding experience more fun and engaging for everyone involved.
