What's it like adding HeyTaco! to Slack?
Adding HeyTaco! can take as little as a few minutes. Below is a photo tour of what you'll see when installing HeyTaco!.
Step 1: Selecting the workspace to add HeyTaco! to
Step 2: Select the channels you want to use HeyTaco! in
People see better results when they add HeyTaco! to multiple channels because it makes it easier to give recognition when you don't have to remember what channels HeyTaco! is a member of.
If you're nervous about introducing HeyTaco! to your Slack, you can create a test channel to experiment in before you enter this setup.
Step 3: Send welcome messages to channels
If you select yes HeyTaco! will post a welcome message in the channels you select letting people know who it is, what it does, and how it works.
Step 5: deciding on leaderboards
You have the option here to use leaderboards or not. You can adjust this at anytime on your settings page. We rec'd not using leaderboards for anything serious (i.e. financial rewards and perfomance evaluation). They're meant for fun!
Step 6: Giving your first taco!
HeyTaco! won't introduce itself to everyone on your team. It'll send a welcome message to the installer via a direct message and a welcome message to any channel you added it to, if you enabled welcome messages.
You're now ready to give tacos at this point :). If you'd like more info on getting started we recommend looking at our getting started guide here.
