Slackbot is Slack’s built-in robot. It can help you with profile completion and integration set up. It can be used as a notepad and a place to keep files. You can even configure Slackbot to respond automatically to your team members’ messages.

You can belong to as many Slack teams as you’d like. You’ll need to create a new Slack account for each team you join but you can use the same email address to sign up for multiple teams.
