Thank you for joining us on the Botany.io journey! If you haven't read it already, the "intro to botany" overview is a good place to start getting to know our solution. Below are quick write-ups and a few video recordings on how to get started with Botany if you hit a snag.
Step 0: What is Botany? Why Botany?
Please see our Welcome to Botany.io or Botany Product Philosophy pages for more information here.
Step 1. Creating your Botany account
- Visit our Signup page to create and set up your new Botany team.
- You will first need to connect your git provider. We currently support Github.com, Gitlab.com and privately hosted Gitlab domains (contact us to configure your private Gitlab domain). If you're creating a new Botany account, you'll need Github/Gitlab organization ownership permission to install Botany's app.
- You then can link Botany to your team's Slack organization. You'll need permission to install new Slack Apps here.
- Careful not to select an incorrect Slack environment in this process! Verify by choosing the right environment in the top right during configuration.
- That's it! You should be able to invite new team members and configure the projects Botany is listening to on your team settings page.
Step 2: Botany Web UI Overview
Botany is primarily an "in workflow" toolset. By that, we mean that its experience lives heavily within communication tools like Slack/Teams and across engineering workflows like Code Reviews, Stand-ups, 1:1's, etc. We have a primary web dashboard for the consumption of growth metrics, team skill/habit selection, and setting other related preferences.
