Use the command
/estimate [user story] to request point estimations from your team right in Slack. I hide the votes of your team until you set the voting as complete.
Once you set voting as complete, I’ll provide the median and average points determined by your team. This works asynchronously – your team members can vote at any time while voting is open – and I’ll remind the channel if the voting is still open.
If you’re a Jira user, I can insert into Slack the issue title and summary from Jira with the ticket number. You can automatically point the ticket from Slack by selecting either the median or average points.
Use the command
/rate [thing to rate] to set up a poll, allowing everyone in a channel to pick a number between 0-5 to give their opinion on your question.
