# Welcome Bio-IT bot and Bio-IT-announce channel
Initially proposed as an EMBL's coding club collaborative programming project, the [EMBL Bio-IT chat bot][bit-bot], avidly named `BIT`, took off in 2020
and is already diligently announcing courses and workshops in the [Bio-IT-announce][bio-it-announce] channel.

Unfortunately Mattermost doesn't yet support the daily digest option but it's possible to receive a notification every time a new message is posted.
As the channel is currently relatively low traffic, you can enable this option by navigating to **notification preferences**.
