Adding PickleBot to Slack
Adding PickleBot to Slack is easy and can be done in just a few clicks. Here's how:
1.) Head to settings and click "Add to Slack"
To add Picklebot to your Slack workspace, head to https://jar.designpickle.com/settings. There, you'll find an "add to slack" button.
note: if you do not see this button, contact support at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get it added to your account.
Click on the "Add to Slack" button and you'll be brought to a page asking you which workspace you would like to add picklebot to and to authorize the bot.
2.) Authorize PickleBot

3.) Select the user on the slack channel you would like to use PickleBot with
Picklebot can only accept requests from one user in a group. Select who will submit via PickleBot the most from the dropdown menu, then hit "Let's Slack".
Once you've selected your user, you're all set!
Submitting Requests through PickleBot
Submitting a request with PickleBot is easy. Simply send a direct message to @picklebot from your authorized account (a simple "hi" should start the conversation).
PickleBot will walk you through a series of prompts. Answer each of the prompts and submit your request.
That's about it! Let us know if you have any questions.
