Using WoBot

WoBot_Comm.pngIf you're a Slack or Microsoft Teams user, you're in luck! With WoBot, you now have your own personal chief of staff who can anticipate what you need to accomplish, knows what needs your attention, and covers your back on the details. WoBot can grab and update your objectives, key results, workstreams and action items and meetings for you — all at the speed of chat.

To get started, enable Slack or Microsoft Teams integration on your Workboard account. You'll get a success message showing you that WoBot is now enabled for your team:


Now, when you go to Slack or Teams, you can start a direct message channel with Workboard (@wobot). View your objectives, update your key results, check your to-do list for today, and more.


Get the Big Picture

Ask WoBot how you're doing... it will compile a quick overview of your OKRs, workstreams and action items and let you know where you can best spend your time. Drill down to specific teams, workstreams or action items to make updates or ping other team members for status.

If you want to focus on potential trouble areas, ask WoBot to show you your risks. You'll get a list of objectives, key results or action items that are at risk — with a click you can update KRs, get a full progress history, or view the item in Workboard.

WoBot likes to share wisdom, but can also let its hair down and make you smile. Ask for some inspiration or a joke!

WoBot is continually building its skills and fluency. However, sometimes it may not understand and give up on you — though we hope you won't give up on it. If you notice odd behavior, tell WoBot you'd like to "send feedback"... we'd love to get your suggestions!
