Introducing Hear Ye - a tool that helps ensure important messages and announcements are acknowledged by recipients.
Have you ever sent an important message to a group of people only to realize later that some of them didn't see it or forgot to respond? Or have you ever missed an important message because it got lost in the noise of your Slack channels? Hear Ye is here to help with that.
How It Works
When you mention the Hear Ye bot in a message and specify the users you want to acknowledge it, they will receive daily reminders between 10 and 11 am* until they acknowledge the message by reacting with a 👍 emoji. Once they acknowledge the message, no more reminders will be sent.
*Reminders are sent based on the recipients timezone settings in slack
To indicate a message is critical and requires acknowledgement that it has been read, simply mention @Hear Ye in the message body.
Hear Ye! will remind anyone mentioned once a day sometime between 10am and 11am until the message is acknowledged.
Messages can be acknowledged by reacting with a 👍. Once acknowledged no further reminders will be sent.
Hear Ye is especially useful for team leaders, managers, and anyone who needs to ensure that important information is seen and acted upon. With Hear Ye, you can rest assured that your message won't be missed, and you can work confident that everyone is aligned.
We're excited to offer a free beta of Hear Ye to all Slack users who want to try it out. If you're interested in joining the beta, simply install the Hear Ye! bot to your Slack workspace.
We welcome your feedback and suggestions as we continue to develop and improve Hear Ye. Thank you for your support, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
