A third person will always stabilize and grow the relationship between the other two. It’s called a triad, and the more you create, the stronger your network.
Don't care about triads and just want to use S'Up to pair team members? S'Up can be customized to introduce any number of people.
First, invite the bot to a Slack channel.
It will then generate fresh triads of members of the Slack channel to meet every week in an informal standup, or S'Up.
It also introduces itself to new team members and can help setup a GCal meeting.
S'Up will then ask whether you met and keep track, a few days later.
Don't want to participate?
Message @sup opt out to opt out, or @sup opt in to opt back in, or leave the channel.
Admins can opt out users (e.g.
@sup opt out @username).
S'Up channel and Slack admins can configure
the timezone (e.g.
@sup set timezone Eastern Time (US & Canada)),
the number of people that meet (e.g.
@sup set size 3),
the day of the week and time to S'Up (e.g.
@sup set day Monday and
@sup set time 9AM)
how often S'Ups are created (e.g.
@sup set weeks 1),
how long to avoid meeting with the same people (e.g.
@sup set recency 12),
whether to generate odd-sized groups (e.g.
@sup set odd no)
and more (try
@sup help for all options).
You can also customize S'Up messages (e.g.
@sup set message Please find a time for a quick 20 minute break on the calendar.),
and take advantage of custom Slack fields (e.g.
@sup set team field Team Name) to improve matches across subteams.
Finally, S'Up provides statistics on the meeting outcomes with
