When creating a task in Slack:
- When you create a task in Slack using /todo you can set a due date and time by typing the due date in the task details. You can use either an exact date, or a day of the week. For example: /todo book caterer April 4 9am or /todo webinar planning 4/8/18
- Please note - the date and time can be in any format recognized by Slackbot, but must be set in the future. You can create a task that is due the same day, but you must specify a time later than the current time. For example, if it is currently March 1st at 12:00 pm, you could create a task /todo Emergency meeting 3/1 2pm.
