How to customize your Halp Slack Bot Icon

Often times, it's nice to have your own custom logo and custom bot username. If you're on the enterprise plan, you can do just that. Go to your General Settings page and click Configure Bot Appearance. From there you should see page that looks like this:

After you're done experimenting with your logo and username, you can check out the preview at the bottom. Click save to upload the file. From this point on, any public interaction with the bot will have the username and image that you configured. Please note, Slack does not allow us to customize the image for whispers (messages that are only visible by one user).

Logo Requirements:

  • Must be between 512px by 512px and 2000px and 2000px
  • Must be less than 16mb


To update the name in Slack sidebar:

Due to Slack permissions, Halp cannot affect the name of the app as it stands in the Slack sidebar. In order to do this, you will have to do it through your Slack settings.

  1. In Slack, go to Administration > Manage Apps
  2. Find the Halp app in your list of installed apps
  3. Scroll down to "Bot User"
  4. Click "Edit Bot Name" to the left
  5. Save Changes
  6. Refresh your slack window


Happy Customizing!
