The Slack chatbot is touted as your “digital coworker.” It is designed to do repetitive tasks so that you don’t have to.
How it Works
Howdy is a utility bot that collects information and can ask questions through the Slack app to members of a team. It can then collect answers and deliver them back to you in report format. You can use it right away or create custom bot scripts without having to write a single line of code.
It comes ready to go with a few common commands to help you get an idea of how the bot works. These include: a tutorial, run a script, create a custom script, schedule a meeting, end a meeting or see the status of a meeting, see a list of items from a meeting (such as notes), as for help or get support or offer feedback.
The best feature of the Howdy app is its ability to learn custom scripts from you. Its easy enough for anyone to do without coding.
Just install Howdy from within Slack. To run your first bot-based script message Howdy with the script command. Each bot can run in a public or private channel and for multiple users.
