Create a CoffeePals Team

Create a new CoffeePals Team. Each member in this team will get matched every Tuesday (by default). If someone no longer wants to receive matches, they can just leave the team or disable matching directly through Teams.

Invite your colleagues

Add members you think would enjoy this directly into the team or use our recommended join message. You can send it in an email or your organizations general channel.

"Hi everyone,
Do you like drinking coffee and making new friends ☕? Because we just installed a new Teams bot called CoffeePals that lets you do just that. Join the CoffeePals team and you'll get paired with a new coffee pal every Tuesday🤝.

Maybe you don't like coffee, you can take a walk🚶🏽, grab lunch 🍱 or show them your super cool rock collection🪨. We just want to help everyone get to know each other better.

If you find it's just not for you, leave the team or send the command "disable-matching" and you will no longer be matched😎.

We really hope you give it a try! We are excited for you all to meet one another and make friends 🌈!"
