Slow mode for Slack
Set how long each member must wait before sending the next message. It's time to slow your chats down a bit.
Must be installed by admins only
Everything looks better in slow motion, right?
The 'Slow Mode' feature allows the chat admins to set how often a member could send a message in the channel and is aimed at making conversations in the chats more orderly.
Think before you post
When Slack admins install @Slo to your channel, you will only be able to send one message per the interval they choose. A timer will indicate how long you have to wait before sending your next message.

Sometimes Things Go Wrong
No ones is perfect, the world is a messy place with no purpose. There could be issues with your Slo installation.
I added Slo to a my Slack and nothing is happening — Please make sure you have admin permissions in this Slack account. To get started, simply invite Slo wo any channel.
I added Slo to a channel and it is instantly removed. — It's likely that you are not administrator. Only admins can add Slo and manage its time limits.
I get server error 5xx — Sometimes Slo is overwhelmed by its global success. Please try again later.
Take a deep breath and share your constructive thoughts on Slo.
