CoffeePals 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.
If you only want CoffeeMaker without matching, access the dashboard by sending a personal message to the app with the command "Dashboard" or click here.
Click Team Settings in the left sidebar menu.
Find the team you want to modify and click Manage Team.
Click the Match Settings tab from the top menu.
Click the slider to the off state next to "Enable Matching". This will ensure that only CoffeeMaker is enabled on this team.
