Reminder Function

If desired, the team can also be informed by a reminder-function that no actions have yet been initiated.

Automation

Additional actions (e.g. call, IFTTT trigger) can optionally also be triggered automatically by the Smart Group Assistant.

Actions

The user who adds an IoT device to a channel or chat group can offer the group various actions that should be initiated by a member of the channel or group. The actions are displayed to all team members in the form of buttons (Telegram) or a dropdown menu (Slack or MS Teams).

Filter Function

Our filter function enables the user who adds IoT devices to a group to define which messages should be forwarded to a channel (Slack or MS Teams) or a chat group (Telegram) (white & black list)

Slack, Telegram or
MS Teams

With the help of our GroupLotse app, IoT devices are easily added to specific channels in a Slack workspace or MS Teams Team. In Telegram the assignment to chat groups works very similarly with the help of the GroupLotse bot.

Your team can decide in Slack, Telegram or MS Teams which actions should be triggered on certain messages from IoT devices.

Teamwork

Each team member can quickly and easily transmit predefined texts to the group (e.g. “I will take care of it!”) and so accept predefined tasks, for example.

Team Communication

When a team member selects an action, the team is immediately informed that an action has been triggered and who did it.
