AttendanceBot along with Slack is excited to bring to you a new way to conduct HR processes amidst the Covid19 pandemic. Whether you are working remotely or going to the office, we all need time off. You can now automate these processes without ever leaving your favorite collaboration software and request time offs on AttendanceBot directly from Slack’s workflow builder.

With the workflow builder, you can automate routine tasks on Slack such as welcome new teammates, run daily standups, make team-wide announcements, and so on. Not only do you save time but also stay focussed with workflow automation. Well, you can now, automate requesting time offs and connect tools in Slack as well.

How does it work?

To get started, you can either open Slack’s workflow builder (under Tools in the workspace menu) or launch the workflow builder by clicking on the Shotcut lightning icon from any channel. You can either create a workflow from scratch or choose from the templates. Identify the processes that can be automated to build a customized workflow.

For example, you might want to request time offs from a public channel and announce the time offs on #announcements. Or you might want to collate the requested time offs in a Google spreadsheet. To do so, connect the respective apps to Slack. Once you do so, the workflow builder will guide you through the process of selecting and creating a workflow that performs the intended task. Once done, Publish the workflow. You can then access the workflow from the Shortcut icon or the workflow.
