Daily Standup Slack Bot
This app allows users to write standup updates directly into a Slack modal and store responses
in an Airtable base. Note that there is some required setup, including
cloning your own copy of this Airtable base, so
definitely make sure you read the Required Setup section below before installing.
You can register people in your Slack workspace by tagging them. Once registered,
they'll receive a message each weekday morning at 9am in their local time
(as specified in Slack) with a button prompting them to log their updates in a modal.
Once they finish writing their updates, the app will:
- Post their answers to a Slack channel (you'll designate which one in the
setup process) so you and the rest of your team can view them immediately
- Send a copy to the linked Airtable base for longer-term storage and review.
Your cloned copy of the Airtable base
comes preconfigured with a calendar view for easily tracking responses over time.
The app and the questions it asks are completely configurable. It's perfect for remote teams!
When installing this app, Autocode will prompt you to link an Airtable base and
a Slack workspace. You can choose whatever Slack workspace you'd like, but you
must clone this base by clicking here
and link your copy when installing this app.
Note: You'll notice your cloned base has tables for Questions, Answers, and Recipients.
You don't need to worry about manually adding recipients or answers through Airtable,
but adding or removing rows from the Questions table will make corresponding
changes in the standup modal, making customization easy!
Once you've installed the app, register users by tagging them when running
/cmd register @<USER>.
And you're good to go! Registered users will get a message like this every weekday morning
prompting them to open the dialog and write an update. Additionally, users can
reopen the modal and log another update by running
