Avoid unnecessary interruptions by giving your team more visibility into what you’re working on. RescueTime for Slack automatically updates your status based on what you’re currently working on so your teammates can be more conscious of your focus.
RescueTime can keep your Slack status updated so your co-workers know what you’re focused on. You choose which categories you’d like to broadcast, and RescueTime will update your status when it detects that you are focused on those activities.
RescueTime can make it easy to stay in the zone by setting your presence to “away” during a FocusTime session. This mutes incoming notifications until you are ready for them.
When you connect RescueTime to Slack, you will be asked to grant the following permissions
This is a required permission for all Slack apps
RescueTime will manage your status when you are focused on important activities.
If you choose, RescueTime will manage your Do Not Disturb settings when you are focused on important activities.
We’ve made some changes to the Slack permissions that RescueTime needs to function correctly.
To continue using this integration, please re-authorize your Slack account and accept the new permissions.
