Human Need

Slack has become an integral tool for organizations around the world. At Robots & Pencils, we send approximately 6,000 Slack messages a day. We rely not only on Slack directory apps but also tons of custom workflows created by our Robots team. However, not everyone has the time or expertise on hand to create one-of-a-kind solutions.

Digital Solution

Created as our first FunLabs project, Missions allows anyone to easily automate common tasks and design their own complex workflows to coordinate activities between people and groups. Best of all, you can do it without writing a single line of code. From enterprises to startups, Missions has enabled companies in every industry to work smarter in Slack, saving employees significant time and energy.

Slack acquired this tool in 2018 and reintroduced Missions to the public under a new name, Workflow Builder, during the 2019 Slack Frontiers conference.
