You can set up automated communications through announcements or reminders.


Announcements are Slack messages sent to selected existing Slack channels in your company's workspace to announce an upcoming event to employees. This can help to boost event confirmations.

To create an announcement, select the events you'd like to announce and the specific Slack channels for the communication. They can be sent out immediately or at a specified date and time.


Reminders are custom messages that you can send to guests in your event. They can be targeted based on guest RSVPs.

To set up reminders, go to the Reminders step when you're creating an event to pre-schedule custom Slack and email reminders.
