The Slack notifications app sends team members personalized schedule updates and reminders directly to a Slack channel whenever activity occurs in Float.

Sync new tasks and track updates across both platforms as soon as they happen, and never miss an assignment or deadline again.

Getting started

  1. You can connect to Slack by clicking Personal > Notifications > Connect to Slack within Float or from the Slack App Directory. You must appear on the Schedule in order to connect to Slack.

  2. Authenticate your credentials and authorize the connection and you're all set.

Your schedule in Slack

The Home tab shows you a live view of your schedule for the day. Whenever a change is made in Float, it's instantly reflected here.

You can view your schedule for tomorrow, or check out your assigned tasks for any date in the future.

Schedule updates

The Messages tab is where all of your schedule changes and notifications live. See a history of who changed what, and receive alerts whenever a new task is added to your schedule or an existing task is updated.

As with email and push notifications, notifications are sent to Slack every hour for any updates you haven't already seen in Float.

๐Ÿ’ก Here's a tip: Use Slack shortcuts /float today and /float tomorrow for a filtered view of your schedule on the Messages tab.

Time tracking reminders

If your team is using time tracking, you can also receive a helpful nudge to log your hours directly in Slack.

Sync your status

Setting a status in Float helps keep your team in the loop and ensures that logistics don't get in the way of productivity. You can share your scheduled status across Float and Slack to give your team even greater visibility.

๐Ÿ“Note: The scheduled status sync is turned on by default but can be disabled from the Slack Settings page.


You can turn your schedule and time tracking reminders on/off from the Settings page within Slack, and also change the time that your reminders arrive.
