With slackbot, is it possible to set a reminder for every last Wednesday of the month or last day of the month?

    I don't think that kind of functionality is built in, so you need to use something like HeyScale – DrZoo Feb 9 '16 at 19:33

    I tried setting it to "31st of each month" to see what would happend in a 30-day month. No reminder was sent today. So at least that's tested. – MPelletier Apr 30 '17 at 14:24

If you entered the following in Slack, you will be reminded on the 28th day of every month to [Complete My Task].

/remind me to [Complete My Task] on the 28th day of every month
  • why the downvote? this was a good work around. im going to use [1st] day of every month – ColacX Jan 31 '17 at 13:47

    I think it should be used without [ and ] in the dates, in this case, it reminds on the 1st date of every month. You may type : remind me to [Complete My Task] on the 28th day of every month – asyard May 16 '18 at 8:39
  • Another example, using time /remind #me [daily stand-up] at 10h30 every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday – Gerardo Lima Sep 4 at 9:32

I ended up using ifttt.com for this. You can do an "every last day of the month" trigger there and you can have it post to slack. It does require you to give ifttt.com access to your slack account and allow it to post on your behalf of course.
