Who's this for?

Stop Slacking is designed for folks who:

  • have bandwidth or data restrictions
  • have an established email workflow
  • can't convince their team to stop using Slack

Get Started

  1. Grab your Slack workspace token at: https://api.slack.com/custom-integrations/legacy-tokens.
  2. Email the token to: alertbot@stopslacking.com.
  3. Done! You're subscribed.

The Slack token is a password that allows us to read and send messages on your behalf (which is the point).

Should you even email passwords? To a free service with a hand drawn website? Made by people living in a campervan? Is this what's really behind the internet?
