How Workplace bots are adding magic to the mundane tasks at work

The repetitive everyday tasks might never be fun, but should they be so painful? Here's how Workplace bots are simplifying workflows and making work more delightful.


Bots fix the simple things. They can streamline routine jobs like booking time off or requesting IT equipment which can often get in the way of the real work.

In Workplace, bots work directly within Workplace Chat or via your choice of Workplace groups.

This gives you customised or off-the-shelf automation directly from your default work platform – so you don't even have to swap between tools to make the magic happen.

Workplace bots can help you to:

Ennismore Group

Ennsimore is using bots to automate processes and add fun. The 'Switch it up' example is one of several bots built with Workplace partner The Bot Platform.

The bot is eliminating paperwork and a lot of admin relating to a job swap program at Ennismore. It's also making the user experience and application process more convenient and intuitive.

"With bots, you can create your own tools and personalise the experience your staff are having. Bots allow you to make Workplace yours."

Wake Up Warrior has successfully built over 15 Workplace bots. These automations are saving the team hundreds of working hours every month that they can reinvest back into growing and developing the business.

“Without Workplace bots, we literally couldn’t do what we’re doing.”

One of these bots allows new starters to schedule all of the relevant training they need in less than five minutes.

As a result, Wake Up Warriors are now onboarding people 10-times faster using Workplace.
