Scheduled PR Reminders

Scheduled reminders helps the Cloud Platform focus on the most important review requests that require their attention. Scheduled reminders for pull requests will send a message to various Slack channels with all open pull requests that the team have been asked to review (or need merging), at a specified time. For example, you can create a scheduled reminder to send a message to your team’s main communication channel in Slack, including all open pull requests that the team is requested to review, every Wednesday at 9:00 a.m.

All reminders are created on Github Team level - For the Cloud Platform team, the team is webops
