Using WoBot

If you're a Slack or Microsoft Teams user, you're in luck! WoBot can show your personal and team Objectives and update your Key Results — 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).

Slack @mentions will populate in a thread with the specific user. To reply to the @mention, follow the prompt within the thread and input /woboreply with the Action Item ID. (Note: The message will have the following wording -- 'To post your reply in Workboard too, use this in front of it: /wobo reply A123456'.)

MS Teams @mentions for Action Items, Objectives, and Key Results will populate in the WorkBoard section within MS Teams. Check out this article to learn more about @mentions in MS Teams.
