Getting started

Setting up fikaTime is very easy and can be done in a few minutes...yes, we timed it.

Create a fikaTime Team

Create a new team called fikaTime. Each member in this team will get matched each week. If someone no longer wants to receive matches, they can just leave the team.

Pro tip: Although you can use an existing team, it's best to create a new team so its easy if people want to leave and to keep other activities separate from the bot activities

Add the app to your new team & create an account

In the Apps tab, search fikaTime and add it to the team you just created. Do Not add to a channel  or to yourself. It must be added to a team. Then follow the instructions from the bot.

Very important: You must complete the account creation or the app wont be "activated" for you.

Pro tip: If you cannot find fikaTime or cannot choose Add to Team, please speak to your IT department or Teams administrator to enable this for you/complete on your behalf.

Invite or add other team members

Add members you think would enjoy this directly into the team or invite them through a mailing campaign/message in Teams.

That's it. Soon you will be paired  with a colleague. 

Pro tip: we have templates to assist in our help files.

For companies where truly knowing everyone is hard, fikatime is a wellness bot that builds socially connected teams by pairing up different employees for short informal coffee breaks

Unlike traditional team-building fikaTime is by design simple enough to stick and smart enough to evolve.

We can help you engage your team and put your best 🦶 forward with tips, guidelines and a detailed rollout plan. To start the conversation of building a more socially connected team, pop us a mail at and we will be happy to help.
