Overview

Pickle is a tool for picking people and managing rotations. Invoke it with the slash command or a Slack shortcut, then specify the users to pick from, the task, and any additional options.

Pickle asks the picked person to accept or decline. This is called confirmation flow. Confirmation flow can be configured to automatically expire picks, retry picks, or can be disabled entirely.

Rotations let you preconfigure picks and maintain independent picking orders. A rotation has a roster of people to pick from. The roster can be configured to always pick from the same people or to pick from different people depending on the day. You don't have to use rotations but they're there as a convenient shortcut.

Use Pickle in workflows to schedule picks, create shortcuts, and integrate it with other tools.
