How To Implement ChatFox

Thanks For Trying ChatFox! We want to ensure that you and your team have the resources necessary to build a great remote team culture with ChatFox. There are some important steps to take in order to make sure that your team is ready to get started. Before getting started you should take a look at our getting started guide, book an onboarding call and introduce us to your team:

1. Book An Onboarding Call

During the call we can get a better understanding of what you are trying to achieve and how we can help make it a reality. Get product training and ways to test and scale ChatFox on your team.

2. Inform Your Leaders, Admins & Team

When ever there is a drive to build or improve your corporate culture it is important that all stakeholders within the organization are involved. Clear communication leads to a smoother implementation, better adoption and a higher return on investment. You take care of the notifications and we’ll take care of the user experience.


Here is a sample message you can send: 


"Hey Team, I wanted to let everyone know that we are implementing a Slack app called ChatFox that will help increase team engagement and reinforce our team values. They do this with multiple chats, icebreaker questions, coffee chats, and ShoutOuts. The responses to the chats are posted on the feed of the designated channel. You can learn more about how it works here:"

3. Share Our Academy Page With Your Team

Our Icebreakers, Coffee Chats and ShoutOuts work a little bit different than the other guys. The chats are very straight forward but your users will need to connect their own calendar and add their birthday.

4. Test Our Service W/ Admin Control

The level of testing depends on the size of your organization. If you expect to have more than 20 people in the designated Slack channel you are going to want to test ChatFox on a Slack channel with fewer users first. Testing is not to make sure that it works, it is to be informed of how it works so that you can field any questions from your team. If you decide to test with a group of less than 8 you will be able to test with a free plan. If you want to test with more people then email We like to play it safe, we hope you do too!
