The Gonebusy app for Slack allows you to create and manage Google Calendar events entirely within Slack – along with extras like automatically sync'ing your Slack status with your Google events.
/gonebusy slash command is the main method for getting things done:
Create a meeting with just a few words:
/gonebusy book Coffee with @samantha tomorrow
View your schedule for the week:
/gonebusy this week
A quick shortcut for only today's upcoming events instead of typing
/gonebusy today :
Manually set your Slack status with:
/gonebusy status Out to lunch for 1hr
Slash commands always respond to you privately so no one else will see what you're requesting.
For a full list of commands, you can always get help in Slack via
/gonebusy help or read about our Features.
Need to setup automatic Slack status sync? Or looking to setup a default conference call URL other than a Google Meet link? You can find all of your preferences with
