Default boiled potatoes in slow cooker?

I want to boil potatoes in a slow cooker. Googling for recipes turns
up: 1) Recipes for stuff which can be served with boiled potatoes
2) Recipes for dishes which _include_ boiled potatoes -- and it seems
at least half of them say to boil the potatoes and then add them.

Why do you want to boil potatoes in a slow cooker? What is the source of

I've never heard of it but I don't see why it couldn't be done. Would take
a terribly long time, though, even with the slow cooker set to High.
Probably more efficient to just boil them in a pan on the stove. Definitely
faster!

Then do so.
Is it required that you are informed to:
put the potatoes in the slow cooker,
add water then turn it on?

I've done potatoes in the slow cooker, but they weren't boiled. More like
steamed. Simply put them in, cut into chunks if not baby potatoes. Add a
small amount of broth or water, some butter or olive oil, salt, pepper and a
bit of parsley. They come out very nice.

However, a slow cooker is safer to leave unwatched.

And how long does it need to be cooked?

It matters because a slow cooker is harder to clean than a simple pot with a
lid. Unless you do not have a stove on which you can heat a pot, there is no
sane reason to use a slow cooker to boil potatoes.
