noun: 1. a program that can send and receive messages to/from other users and bots
JUST ANOTHER USER
A Bot is just another user on Teamchat. You can invite a Bot to a group and command it to post messages with the help of keywords. These Bots can read and write messages and conduct complicated workflows for you. Bots are “people” too, in a way.
DIFFERENT SPECIES OF BOTS
Each Bot implements its own logic. It can connect, do workflows, track, monitor, report, chat, chartify your data, alert, remind and much more for you. And that’s not all. They can even help you communicate with various IoT devices and web services.
BOT + SMART MESSAGE = MAGIC
Combining Bots & smart message opens up a world of possibilities. Some messages give Bots a rich vocabulary to communicate with their human or Bot friends. So be it any kind of workflow, Bots can perform it magically with Teamchat’s any smart message.
BOT TO BOT
You can easily link Bots to message each other and perform actions. You can even chain them together to form more advanced workflows like scheduling a message, watching replies to a message, expiring messages, announcing observations and much more.
