Have Slack give you the heads up on 4:20

With the reminder function in Slack you can always have a heads up on 4:20. To set a reminder you use the /remind keyword. The exact syntax looks like:

/remind [who] [what] [when]

So to be reminded about 4:20 you would write:

/remind me "Yo, heads up. 4:20!" at 4:20pm

To take it a little further, you can have Slack remind a whole channel with a graphical readout everyday:

/remind #theHeads :four::two::zero: everyday at 4:20pm
