People are picked in a fair rotation. Pickle manages the rotation automatically behind the scenes.

Pickle will try the next available person if the current person in the rotation is offline or can't take the task.
How It Works
Rotations maintain their own independent assignment order and configuration.
Use them in workflows, as shortcuts, or to pick from different people based on the day.

What tasks can I use Pickle for?
Anything, but Pickle is built with recurring tasks in mind - for example picking someone for code review, QA testing, or to host a meeting. Pickle compliments your team's usual planning system by rotating the unplanned stuff.
How do I tell Pickle which people to pick from?
Use @user, @usergroup, and #channel tags with Pickle's slash command or modal. You can combine them and even tell it to exclude specific users.
Does it work in threads?
Yes. You can pick in threads by using the message shortcut.
What if I want to pick someone at random?
Pickle lets you configure a bunch of things, which includes setting it to pick randomly instead of round-robin.
I'm not sure if I'll need a subscription. Do I need to sign up?
No, just install Pickle and don't bother signing up for a trial or subscribing. It'll ask you to subscribe if/when you hit the active user threshold.
