Our Slack Bot has no AI yet. However, it’s still capable of something:
- Create Entities from messages.
- Create Entities using bot command.
- Display a list of assigned entities.
- Handle vacations and sick days.
This video shows installation flow and basic cases:
Create Entities from messages
Every message can be converted to some entity. For example, Task, Feature, Bug, Document and anything else. Just click on a message actions, select Create Entity action and here we go:
Note: If a message contains an image, it will be attached to an entity. Thus you can create bug from screenshots in Slack quickly. Very handy!
Create Entities using Bot command
/fibery create bug “this is a bug” and new bug will be created. You can create other entities as well, like:
/fibery create task "record the video about Slack Bot" @slack-user
/fibery create feature "Notifications"
/fibery create candidate "Teddy Bear"
Note that you can assign people from Slack using @ symbol.

You can type command to see assigned Bugs, Stories, Tasks, Features, etc:
/fibery my tasks
/fibery my features
/fibery my bugs
You will see a list like this:

/fibery vacation Jun 10-20
/fibery sick today
Slack Bot tries to guess correct dates and shows a confirmation for you:
