How does Watercooler work and what do the Watercooler Topics look like in Slack?

Watercooler topics come through as Slack messages from Donut in the channel you've selected. Once Donut posts the Watercooler topic, your team can respond and chat about the prompt in the channel together.

For example, Donut might ask your teammates to discuss their "Favorite ice cream flavor" their "happy place" or "the most beautiful place they've ever visited" to encourage friendly conversation. Donut's Free plan includes 12 default topics.

If your team is on our Standard and Premium plans, you can select from our many different Watercooler Topic Packs, focused around themes like Aspirations and Dreams, Hypothetical Questions, Recognition and more.
