When working in an office, we all have experienced some funny responses, which has created cherished moments. Working with your coworkers, when you can express yourself and have fun, is the best working environment there is.
Nobody ever gets hurt when we make a practical joke, or we prank someone. This is why we will give you some examples of how you can make the Slack bot respond funnily.
Before we give the examples, let me show you how you can create them inside the Slack bot memory.
Slack Gives Options to Build Prebuilt Responses Within the Platform
With this option, you can create questions and answers, and more precisely, respond on keywords. You may type in the subject and give a funny response to it. The most significant prank is that the question should not be a question, it should be just a keyword.
First thing first: to be able to do this, you need to access the “Customize Your Workplace” feature. You may access it by going to the left upper corner where the name of the workplace is. Click on the menu and choose “Customize Slack.” When you click on this tab, you will be redirected to the page where you can make the adjustments. You will see tabs like:
- Loading Messages
- Workplace Icon
You need to click on the Slackbot tab, and there will be lines where you can input the questions and another line where you can write down the responses.
Above the one column, there is the “When someone says” line, and above the other column, there is “Slackbot response” line.
It’s simple enough, and you may add as many responses as you like, so give it a try.
Here are our examples:
1). Question: What tool do you use for data analyses?
Response: You should use the force within you.
2). Question: Can you tell me what the WI-FI password is?
Response: Try to guess it.
3). Question: Is someone up for a coffee?
Response: You should focus on your work, that’s why you are here.
4). Question: Can someone help me out with… ?
Response: You will work the next two weekends so you can improve yourself.
5). Question: Does anyone know how to… ?
Response: Not knowing this will get you into trouble; the channel is being monitored by the boss.
6). Question: What was the meeting about?
Response: They said they would let you go, I’m really sorry.
7). Question: Did someone see (and put the name of the manager for example) today?
Response: I think he/she is avoiding you; he/she was talking about you yesterday.
8). Question: Slack… ?
Response: You say Slack, I say Bot, You say Bot, I say Slack. Slack bot is my name.
9). Question: Can you tell me… ?
Response: Sorry that’s confidential.
10). Question: Is the meeting … ?
Response: No, it’s happening now, where are you?
