How can I customise the messages sent by ScrumGenius?

Do you want to customise the messages sent by the ScrumGenius bot? This can be useful for teams using ScrumGenius in a different language and to further personalise standups for your team. 

Note: Customizing messages are different from customizing the questions on your standup report! Learn more about private reports and customizing them here.

The following messages sent by the ScrumGenius bot are customisable by you:

  • Public Channel Broadcast header & message -- available placeholders: {{team_name}}, {{report_name}} & {{report_date}}
  • Report Finished message -- available placeholders: {{edit_link}} & {{dashboard_link}}
  • Out of Time message -- available placeholders: {{edit_link}} & {{dashboard_link}}
  • 1st Reminder message -- available placeholders: {{team_name}} & {{time_left}}
  • 2nd Reminder message -- available placeholders: {{team_name}} & {{time_left}}

You can find these settings in your report configuration, under Additional Settings. You can also edit all of these messages to give your team standups a little more context. For example:

  • Using the Reminder messages to notify them of an upcoming deadline.
  • Sending specific Broadcast messages with different types of standups e.g. sprint retrospectives or team feedback sessions. You can use these alongside our Report Templates to tailor your standups even more!

Use these placeholders to give more context to your ScrumGenius messages:

{{team_name}} - This is replaced with the name of your team in the customised message. 

{{report_name}} - This is substituted with the name of your standup report in the customised message. 

{{report_date}} - This is substituted with the current date of the report (e.g. Oct 21).

{{time_left}} - This is replaced with the specific amount of time left until the report ends and the email summary is sent out. Use this only in your reminder messages to give team members the little push they need!

{{edit_link}} - This embeds a link into the message that directs team members to edit their report answers. Tip: use this for the Report Finished or Out of Time messages!

 {{dashboard_link}} - This embeds a link into the message that directs team members to the Dashboard, where they can catch on what everyone else has been working on.
