The time of working from an office five days per week is over. People want flexibility, and over 74% of companies are offering their employees just that, with hybrid work models.

Slack alone doesn’t have the capability to display your working location... but if only there were an in-Slack app you could download to show where people are working.

A tool that provides hybrid businesses with the ability to integrate with the most popular apps in the modern workplace.

An app that displays your working location in your Slack status.

With Officely, there's no more guessing who’s in the office and when, no more messaging your favorite coworkers to find out who's made the morning commute.

One quick integration later, and your team's Slack status' will tell you everything you need to know.

Officely’s Slack Status Sync:

  • Shows you who’s in each office (and you can create multiple offices to reflect different workplaces).
  • Features customizable emojis, so you can choose the best one for each workplace.
  • Syncs automatically each day.
  • Displays who is in the office without any extra work on your part! 
  • Can be integrated into GCal too, so those in your calendar can book meetings based on your location.

Let’s get started! 

The Quickest Way to Sync Slack to Your Location

If you're new to Officely, we're a hybrid workspace management app that lives in Slack, and every user gets a two-week free trial.

Don’t worry, your team won't be notified that you've signed up until you invite them to join too.

1. Set up your locations

First, use our onboarding demo to set up different 'offices' of your choice.

Maybe you only need to show who’s in the office, or maybe you want to create an ‘office’ for people to join when they work from home, or to join when they’re off sick. 

However you want your office to look, it’s time to get creative! (And you can add more at any time.)

2. Now you can start booking in! 

Booking in is how Officely knows where you are when you sync your Slack status. Simply hit ‘Join’ in the Officely home to let your teammates know where you’ll be this week. 

💡Have set office days? You can create recurring bookings, so Officely will book you into the same office automatically each week.

3. Sync to your Slack!

To make the icons appear next to your name in Slack, all you need to do is head to Settings in the Officely home, and scroll down to Integrations. 

Click on the Sync Slack Status button, and go through the authorization process – it only takes two clicks! 

BONUS: Integrate Your Location with Google Calendar

If you want to find out when your team is in without opening Slack, you can use Officely’s GCal integration.

Once you've integrated the two tools, any days you’ve booked into Officely will be displayed at the top of your Google calendar.
