Ever tried to create a Slack reminder and got stuck? Using Slack reminders is simple once you know how.

1. To start, use slash commands. Write /reminder in your text box, and click on 'Set yourself a reminder' above. 

Set Yourself a Reminder

2. This opens a pop-up where you can set the reminder. If you need a reminder for a specific message or file, insert in tre description. Choose the day and time and click 'save'.


After these steps, Slackbot will tell you that your reminder is scheduled. You’ll get a text alert in the right channel when your reminder is due.

If you prefer an alternative method, you can write /remind In any message box followed by what you need to remember. For instance, if you type ‘/remind me to call Jim at 2 pm Tuesday,’ it will set up a reminder for that task.  Make sure to turn on your notifications so you receive the reminers.

Not only can you set up reminders for yourself, but you can also do it for others or within a particular channel. These reminders can be for single or regular events like "every Monday."
