Guide: Raid-Helper Event Creation

Creating an Event


The main purpose of the raid-helper bot is to simplify the process of creating and tracking attendance of an event. As of current, there are two event templates which can be used which is the Pre-Planned Flight event template and the Joy Ride event template.

Use Cases

Pre-Planned Flight Template

This template is to be used when a pre-planned flight such as weekly missions, community missions or training missions. This type of template requires the squadron members to register their role of choice and their preferred airframe.

!create [template: 17] [title: Title Here] [description: Description Here] [date: dd-mmm-yyyy] [time: HH:MM] [channel: active-events] [color: red / blue / green] [mentions: @everyone]

Joy Ride Template

This template is to be used when a spontaneous / casual flight is being considered; only requiring the squadron members to register their attendance or not.

!create [template: 18] [title: Title Here] [description: Description Here] [date: dd-mmm-yyyy] [time: HH:MM] [channel: active-events] [color: white] [mentions: @everyone]
