Can I change what I call Spoke on Slack?

Updated 3 months ago by Andrew White

We love the name @Spoke (call us biased) If you'd like to change the name of Spoke on Slack, follow these steps below.

  1. Open Slack. In the top left-hand corner of Slack, select the downward arrow next to your company name.
  2. Select "Profile & account"
  3. Select the gear icon on the right side of the window to open "Account settings" in a web browser

In the web browser, select "Configure apps" from the left side of the screen.

This will open a new tab showing all of the apps installed on your Slack. Double click to select Spoke from the list.

On Spoke details screen:

  1. Select the pencil icon under the section "Bot User"
  2. Change the name of Spoke to whatever you'd like
  3. Press Save
If you'd like to prevent staff from changing Spoke's name, make sure you have the "Approved Apps" permission turned on in Slack.


How did we do?
