Will Eventbot work after I convert my channel?
When you convert a channel from public to private, you are essentially creating an entirely new channel. Any events you created in the old public channel will no longer be in the new private channel. You can use "/events mine" to show you all the events you've created and "/events interest" to see all the events you've RSVP'd for - we suggest inviting these events to your newly private channel so you don't need to re-create anything.
If you want more help, feel free to contact us firstname.lastname@example.org before you convert your channel as we can make sure the transition goes smoothly.
Why doesn't this work automatically?
Slack gives Eventbot limited information when converting a channel from public to private, so we can't detect this. We've reached out to Slack and hopefully this functionality will improve.
