How do I set up or configure Ariv for my Slack workspace?

You can configure the channels that Ariv has access to (/ariv-configure-channel) , as well as setup how you want to award β€œKarma” points for useful knowledge nuggets from team members (/ariv-karma-configure). These configurations affect all users in the workspace.

Once that's up and running, feel free to add some topics of interest (/ariv-interest-add) and schedule when you want to receive your daily digest (/ariv-notification-cycle). This setup is just for you, every user can set up their own preferences for interest and digest frequency.

While Ariv is in Beta, it will be completely free of charge. We just started to test and need more feedback to make Ariv really a helpful assistant for team communication. Early adopters will be assured of a significant discount on the Ariv pricing, once we go into general availability. For now, go ahead install Ariv and let us know what you think.

Will Ariv work for multiple Slack workspaces or Teams?

For now ariv can only work in the workspace that it is installed in or Teams that it is added to, we are looking into the best way to bring an integrated experience for users across workspaces and will keep our users posted on developments for this.

Which channels or conversations will Ariv monitor? Can I choose or exclude?

Yes the workspace or team admin and/or owner or the user who installs ariv can choose what channels Ariv will monitor. By default all public channels are connected to ariv at the time of installation. Ariv only reads messages from public channels, private channels and group chats are not accessed by Ariv.
