The bot will actually manage most of the important stuff himself. He collects a list of birthdays automatically, reminds about upcoming birthdays automatically and congratulates people automatically as well.
However, if you wanna know when is the next celebration in your team or if you forgot when your friend has a birthday - just send bot a DM with the text help, and he will be there for you.
