Eventbot responds to very specific commands in Slack. Here is the list of each of the commands and how they work:
🗓️ Create a new event: "/events create"
This will create a new event in the channel you are in. Once created we'll post a message to the channel letting folks know this event has been created. Anyone in Slack can use this command. Shortcut: /events +
📆 See a list of upcoming events (private): "/events" or "/events list"
Use this command to see all the events posted to a channel. This works in public and private channels. Anyone in Slack can use this command and the events are shown privately, but you can share the list publicly if you choose to.
🔭 See a visual calendar of upcoming events (private): "/events calendar"
Use this command to visually see the events within a channel. Eventbot will show you a visual calendar view of the events, which you can share publicly if you choose to. Certain views (week, month, and future months) are restricted to paid plans. Shortcut: /events cal
📖 See all public events across your workspace (private): "/events all"
This command will show you a full list of public events across your workspace. This will not show any events solely within a private channel or DM. Anyone in Slack can use this command. It is only available on our paid Business Plan. Shortcut: /events a
⭐ See all the events you've RSVP'd for (private): "/events interest"
Use this command to pull up the events you've positively RSVP'd for. Anyone can use this command in any channel, however the events are only shown to the person who used the command. This will show all your RSVP'd events across all channels, as a handy shortcut. Shortcut: /events i
👑 See all the events you've created (private): "/events mine"
Use this command to pull up your events that you specifically have created. Anyone can use this command in any channel, however the events are only shown to the person who used the command. This will show all your created events across all channels. Shortcut: /events m
📥 Import events into Slack: "/events import"
This command will give you the option to bring events into your Slack channel. Eventbot can connect to Google, Outlook, Meetup, and nearly every other calendar out there. More details are available here.
📤 Export events from Slack: "/events export"
Use this command to have your events in Slack, show up on external calendars. Eventbot plays well with all the common calendar providers so you're got options. Plus, once connected, we'll keep your external calendar updated. Read more about how this works.
