Help > Getting Started
Setting up fikaTime is very easy and can be done in a few minutes...yes, we timed it,
but first: Has your organisation invited you to use fikaTime or are you looking to install it for your organisation?
If you have been invited to use fikaTime by your organisation then you don't need to install anything. See our FAQ for users . If you are looking to try fikaTime with your organisation then see below:
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 more detailed instructions, see our Help Centre.
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
