All you need is to use an app to create your autoinvite bot, no need to code.

it’s free

Confirm your email and log in.

2. Deploy the heroku autoinvite app from github

click this link


and click Heroku down there

3. Login to your slack team in your browser

In a new browser tab, go to YOURSLACKTEAMNAME.slack.com

In my case is


and login with your admin account


4. Now you need to fill up the form.

As for the name, my advice is to use your slack name



5. Create the slack API token

Copy the  code under token
Paste it in “slack api token”

Now you can point your community wannabe members and newsletter subscribers
