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

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

Integration setup

You must appear on the Schedule to connect to Slack.

To set up the integration, navigate to Personal > Notifications > Connect to Slack within Float or use the Slack App Directory.

Once you authenticate your credentials and authorize the connection you are all set!

Your schedule on 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.

Schedule updates

The Messages tab is where all of your schedule changes and notifications live. You can see a history of who changed what and receive alerts whenever a new task is added to your schedule, an existing task is updated, or when people that you manage request time off. This is also where you will receive your schedule for the day and log time reminders.

For all the updates you haven't seen in Float, the Slack notifications are sent every hour.

💡 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 uses time tracking, you can also receive a helpful Slack nudge to log your hours.

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.

📝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 and off and change the time that your reminders arrive in the Settings tab.
