Does anyone have a suggestion for a slack bot that could be used to ask a channel a weekly series of 'get to know you' type questions?

If you’d like it to work similar to the Firedrill Friday bot we have going in this Slack I’d be happy to share the code with you. We just use an Apps Script and and Inbound Webhook to drive to that.

Yeah, that would be helpful. I accomplished the same thing in another slack workspace using zapper, but your script may open up different options

Cool, are there any major requirements outside: post this message, at this time, to this channel, on this day?

The thing I’m most curious about is allowing a designated person to ask a new question every week?

So somebody on your side would ‘line up’ a question somewhere, and this bot would send it to the channel at a predetermined date/time?

Yup, haven’t found a slack app yet that could do that.

want to work together on it? could be a cool thing to live stream/record and then make available for the community or something like that

Sure, I’ve never worked on something like this so would be a learning experience for me as well

I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing the output from this effort 🙂

I'm usually most free on Monday and my goal would be to have something in about 2 weeks because we're on a trial version of slack plus and want to use it during this trial period

@mlynch out of curiosity, would you be interested in joining that session as an observer/questions asker/participant?

yeah, i’d love to be a fly on the wall, but don’t feel the need to schedule around me, if you add me to the invite, I’ll join if I’m free: mlynch@doximity.com
