How do I install the Celebrations πŸŽ‰ by Airspeed Slack App?

You can install the app from our product page or the Slack App store.

What channel is best to use for Celebrations? Can I add it to multiple channels?

We recommend adding Celebrations to the channel(s) where you celebrate birthdays and work anniversaries. Don’t have a channel yet? Make a #celebrations channel.

You can add Celebrations to multiple channels if you prefer to celebrate with individual teams. Click on the app in Slack. Navigate to the Home tab of the Slack App and go to the “Select channels” section. Click the “# selected” button to add more channels.

Can I upload birthdays and work anniversaries for my workspace?

Sure! Go to the Home tab of the Slack App and click the “πŸŽ‚ Import Birthdays” or “πŸ“† Import Work Anniversaries” button. We’ll send you a message in the “Messages” tab with a CSV template and simple instructions to upload those celebration dates.

⚠️ Note: people who are not in a Slack channel with the Celebrations app added will not receive celebration cards.

Will new users that join our Slack workspace get a reminder to add their celebration dates?

When new users join a Slack channel that has the Celebrations app added, they will receive a message prompting them to add their birthday and work anniversary.

Who receives notifications to sign celebration cards?

Users will only receive reminders if they’re in a channel where the Celebrations app is added. For example, if I’m a member of the #engineering and #austin-office Slack channels, I will only receive notifications to sign celebration cards for members of those channels.

How do I view upcoming birthdays and work anniversaries?

We display all upcoming birthdays and work anniversaries in the Home tab of the Slack app. You can view special dates and sign your coworkers’ cards in advance. We deliver celebrations cards on the day of the milestone.

Will the person celebrating receive too many messages?

No need to worry about tons of messages! We centralized celebration wishes to a single notification. When you sign a colleague’s card, we deliver it on the day of the celebration in a thread along with everyone’s celebratory wishes.
