tickbot

Tickbot is a simple app to remind your team to complete their time tracking for the day. It also shames (in a friendly way) those who forgot to do so the day before.

We use Tick for our time tracking and Slack as our team chat room: tickbot was specifically written to work with both.

Setup

The easiest way to get started is to deploy to Heroku. You'll need to add the following config keys using heroku config:add KEY=VALUE.

Key Description
TICK_USERNAME Tick username/email address
TICK_PASSWORD Tick password (I'd suggest creating a separate non-admin account)
TICK_SUBDOMAIN Subdomain you chose when setting up Tick, e.g. globalpersonals
TICK_IGNORE Comma-separated list of email addresses for any Tick accounts you want to ignore, e.g. managers or part-time developers
SLACK_TOKEN Token for your Slack integration, e.g. xoxp-...
SLACK_SUBDOMAIN Subdomain for your Slack team, e.g. globaldev

Alternatively, if you're hosting it yourself, create a .env file and the Dotenv gem will pick up your config.

Usage

Every afternoon at 5:30pm (or whenever your team usually leave):

$ rake remind

Every morning at 7am:

$ rake shame

Alternatively, you can Curl the /remind or /shame URLs using the Sinatra app.
