Holidays and remote work synchronization with Slack
It's a new feature that we've been working on for some time and we're proud to announce that it's finally available!
The new option allows you to enable automatic Slack status updating depending on whether someone is working remotely or is absent. You can turn on automatic statuses in Slack's configuration by checking the additional synchronization of absences and remote work statuses field.
When an employee is absent, their Slack status will be automatically set with the information about absence, who's a replacement, and when the employee plans to return to work. When the leave time ends, the status automatically turns off. In the case of remote work, the status will inform about working remotely and after the remote work is over it will turn off.
We encourage you to take advantage of the new option, which will improve the flow of information about employees' absences through the organization even more.
