The Surfboard Slack App lets you follow your schedule within Slack, meaning less tabs for you!

What does it do?

  • You'll receive notifications whenever you need to start or end a shift, switch activity, or take a break.

  • You'll also be sent an update if your schedule changes mid-shift, so you can stay up to date.

  • You can choose to sync your Slack status to your schedule. Then, your status will show an emoji for the activity you're currently scheduled on.

How do I install it?

  • Log into your Surfboard account

  • Click your avatar in the top right hand of the screen to open the menu

  • Select 'Add to Slack'

  • You'll then be taken to a new page and asked to authenticate the App. Click 'allow'.

  • Your app will then be installed and ready to go. You should receive a welcome message in the Surfboard Slack channel right away.
