AI Slackbot

Our AI Assistant can generate answers to your questions without you having to leave Slack
This feature allows the AI Assistant to give answers to questions within Slack, and then post these questions/answers in the Questions section in your workspace!
For data teams, this means:
  • No more answering the same question twice
  • Protection against context switching
  • Reclaiming time to focus on higher impact initiatives
For data consumers, this means:
  • Get immediate answers to questions
  • Self-serve data discovery
  • Self-serve query generation

Asking questions for personal use

If you have a one off question that you don't want to be posted in Secoda Questions, you can ask the AI Assistant questions in any DM or channel by prompting it by typing /secoda-ai followed by the question.
The AI Assistant will reply in the channel, but this response will be Only visible to you.
