CoffeeMaker: Get Started

Just like standing around the coffee maker in the office kitchen, CoffeeMaker sparks light conversation within your team. The CoffeePals App will post thought-provoking questions in your team for participants to answer in text form. Example: "What's your favourite quote and what makes it so good for you?". This is a great asynchronous way for your team to get to know one another.

Get started

To get started with CoffeeMaker follow these steps:
Add the CoffeePals app to the team where you want questions to be posted in. Click here to find it in the Teams Store.
Click on Programs
Click on Create a new program
Using the “Type” filter, choose Coffee Maker
Choose the Coffee Maker Questions template, or any of the other Coffee Maker templates for other fun themed programs
