How to Set a Slack Status

With Flamingo, you can set a status and emoji in Slack for your leave policies.

This means when a user goes on a leave, their Slack status will change to reflect the leave they have taken. This helps to keep other team members updated about who is currently on leave.

To turn this feature on, first head to "Settings".

Then click on "Leave Policy".

Now click your chosen leave policy, and click the toggle to turn on the "Set Slack Status" feature. Below that, you can pick an emoji and edit your own status message if needed.

Slack status not working? - If the Slack status does not appear, have your users log out of the web app and log back in. If still not working, have your Slack admin, log out of the web app and log back in.

They will need to give Flamingo permission by clicking the "Allow" button like the image below. If still not working, use the contact link at the bottom of this page and we will help.
