Description

We would like to have a Slackbot created that will respond when a new person joins the Design channel. This is the content:

Welcome! This all-volunteer team needs designers of various kinds. Here are some handy links to get started in our community:

Great to have you onboard :)

Can we trigger this Slack response using !design-welcome ?

Should look like this

Maybe that same content should be added to the welcome banner/header on https://make.wordpress.org/design/ ?

Then in the interim, a link to that can be posted and the intended recipient will see all of that same content

@netweb It is there, but we often have folks that come into Slack looking for information. This is a handy shortcut that helps us answer them, that I've seen work to great effect on other Slacks. It only takes a couple seconds to set up.

I added the !design-welcome Slackbot trigger, but then was quickly reminded that Slackbot doesn't support multiline answers, so removed it again.

I'll investigate the bot options to do this.

Okay, there's now a bot DM when people join the design channel.

It's kind of hacky, though, I'm not wild about it. If someone has some time to write a bot in the style of trac-bot, I'm happy to commit that. It should be able to handle DMing on channel join, or messaging the channel when the !design-welcome command is triggered.

I meant this banner/header section:

Given the feedback from @melchoyce and @karmatosed, I've removed the DM bot.

So, this brings us back to the options of creating our own trigger bot, or re-writing the previous message to be a single paragraph. I'm fine with either option. 🙂

I believe this was resolved using Slack workflows at some point. Or at least was for other channels.
