How do I stop receiving: "You have the Ability to send messages on bots behalf..."

I have trello connected to slack so that the group gets automatic slack messages from trello like "Sam Moved card to new column" etc.

Recently, every single auto message appears with the an extra message:

"To have the ability to send messages on bots behalf invite our bot to this channel by sending /invite @Trello"

Does anyone know how I can get trello to stop including this message.  It is taking up so much space on our slack channel and driving me nuts.


Thank you

Hi Sam,

Thanks for reaching out!

I've responded to your ticket, but will copy my response here as well:

Our team identified that this was a bug and they have pushed a fix. From now on, the message should appear no more than once a week. To get rid of the message completely, you'll need to invite the Trello bot to the channel via the /invite @Trello command.

With that said, for all new alerts, we invite the bot automatically but we can’t do this for alerts that were created a long time ago. It’s recommended to have the bot in the channel in order for the Trello Slack app to function properly.

Please let us know if you have any other questions, and we'll be happy to help.

All the best,

The Trello Team
