Feel free to install Sidequest to your Slack workspace right now, or give it a try in our sandbox workspace first by joining https://join.slack.com/t/sidequestsandbox/shared_invite/zt-f....
The `/sidequest create` is not context-aware right now, it will behave the same way no matter you invoke it (opens the creation modal).
Inviting the @Sidequest user to a channel (public or private) makes this channel visible to the app and allows users to select it as a recipient when creating a quest.
Will invest more time into documentation before final release. :-)
We have been using Sidequest in our own team with 60+ people and multiple subsidiaries of ours for more than a month now, creating and completing more than 200 quests without significant issues. We have also been working on enterprise tools for a while now (you may want to check out https://mantro.net, that's us), so overall, we're quite confident in the product.
Over the last 24hrs, we have seen quite a number of beta installations and we are working through all logs and feedback to solve smaller issues and implement enhancements. That was our main intention for the public beta, so nothing to worry about. However, it's still a beta, so usage is at your own risk per definition. :-)
If you want to be extra safe, you may want to wait until our app is officially approved by Slack. Review is in progress and we hope this to be done within the next few days. Feel free to drop me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll make sure to let you know once there are news. Feel free to join our sandbox workspace (see my other comment) in the meantime.
The app will then take care of assignments, status tracking, communications, etc.
Nice touch that you came across the same name... it took us a while!
