NOTIFICATIONS AND CHANNEL SETTINGS

HONOR AND PERSONALIZE YOUR STATUS

  • ​Personalize your status​

    • Connect Slack to Google Calendar to make the team aware you're in a meeting

    • Utilize preset Slack or Guru statuses and set your status to normalize sharing (e.g. heads down, with kids, on a walk)

    • Self-honor your status: If on vacation, be on vacation; after hours, respond in the morning

    • In turn, recognize that your colleague set a status to explicitly communicate something. It's certainly okay to send them a message, but remember that Slack is asynchronous
