But what if you can't add apps to Slack to your workspace on your own? Here are the next best two ways to give it a try.

  • Note before you start: The Cloverpop Community is a real community site, so please avoid sending random or test decisions to real channels or real people. Thank you!
  • Start easy by sending a fun decision poll to the #random channel.
  • Explore by going to the Cloverpop app and sending an announcement from your poll to the #testing channel.
  • Be adventurous by going to the Cloverpop app and requesting approval from Slacker Testeroni (our fake test user) for your recently announced poll.
  • Get curious and type "/cp list" to see a list of recent decisions.


Trying Cloverpop For Slack The Real Way

Trying Cloverpop on our community site can be fun, but the best way to try Cloverpop is in your own workspace with your own team. If you don't have rights to add apps to Slack, try sending this message to your app manager to get things started:

I'd really like to try Cloverpop for Slack, a new app that helps teams like ours keep track of decisions in Slack. The app is free for me to use with our team as long as I want, and looks very easy to use.

We're happy to help if your app manager has any questions. Just go to the #questions channel in the Cloverpop Community and we'll get right back to you!
