You can now assign tasks for many people to complete all at once!
Busybot gives you three new advanced options for assigning tasks:
- Assign a task to everybody in a channel
- Ask every assignee to complete a task individually (Busybot will let you know which people have completed the task, and which people haven't)
- OR, say that any single assignee can complete the task
You can access these new options from the Slack assignees menu, or the assignees menu in the Busybot app
Assigning tasks to everyone in a Slack channel
Busybot makes it super-easy to give everybody in a Slack channel the same task. Here's how:
/busybot (task name) @channel and Busybot will automatically create the task, assigning it to everyone in the channel
- or, for any task that's already in a channel, just click the assignee button in the Busybot app, and choose "Advanced"
For any task with multiple assignees, you can easily switch between the two modes - Any one assignee can complete the task or Every assignee must complete the task individually . This option is available in the Assignee section in Slack, or the Busybot app.
