๐Ÿ’Œ Sharing Rootly with your Team

Whether you're a team of 20 or 20,000, we want to make it even easier to introduce / onboard your organization to Rootly based on a few guiding principles:

  • Reduce work needed to teach others of a new tool
  • Accelerate adoption via self-service
  • Customizable towards your organization

We are introducing a new Slack command /rootly tutorial that as the name states is a guided and interactive tutorial of Rootly.

  • Comprehensive - takes all users from account setup, creating incidents, and finding help
  • Accessible - command can be ran anywhere regardless if you have a Rootly account
  • Beautiful - thoughtfully designed to be delightful to use and interact with
  • Customizable - anywhere you want to provide additional context, we can link back to your internal docs on Confluence, Google Docs, etc.
