The 3 Slack automations that every team needs
If you’re one of the many teams that use Slack, you probably already know how powerful Slack reminders and bots can be. They’re the perfect way to automate tasks and take some stuff off your plate.
Here are our favourite bots and reminders, which you can copy and paste right now, to keep your remote team thriving.
Standups are a common activity on teams, but they can be hard to remember. This reminder will help make sure everyone gets there on time.
/remind #general :alarm_clock: It's standup time! Meet us at the Standup pin in 2 minutes. every day at 9:15am
Have a coffee together
Coffee. Coffee is what brings us together. That dream within a dream.
Schedule a reminder each morning to pop in and say hello with a cuppa. It’s a great way to make sure your team takes a moment to refuel during the day.
/remind #general :coffee: It's coffee break time! Grab your cup and hop into the galaxy for a catchup. every day at 10:15am
Everyone loves lunch
Especially for remote teams, it’s important to take the time to be social and get to know each other.
A weekly lunch is easy to set up, and will quickly become something the whole team looks forward to.
/remind #general What's for lunch? :pizza: :hamburger: :burrito: Grab your plate and let's meet at the Lunch Table pin! every Friday at 12:30pm

Top leaders are embracing remote by switching to Orbital
"Game-changing for remote teams and culture"The first time you use it you realise just how invasive, unnecessary, and unnatural video is. This is game changing for remote teams and culture… you MUST try it out.
"This is going to be the next big thing"We just had our first call in Orbital and the user experience, design and functionality are purely amazing. This is going to be the next big thing in remote work and audio spaces!
"Exactly what we need to keep engagement high"Orbital is such a breath of fresh air for remote working, exactly what we need to collaborate and keep energy and engagement high on projects.
"Serious enough for business, casual enough to be enjoyable."There is a fine line between the ice-cold pragmatism of a Zoom, and the frivolous gamer-bro-lolz of other platforms in this space. Orbital walks this line with poise.
"This is PERFECT!"I’ve been looking for a way to communicate more effectively with my team beyond the tedious typing on Slack. This is PERFECT! It’s such an engaging product and creating your own “galaxy” is super fun.
" This is what remote collaboration should feel like!"
