Slack Location Manager

npm version

A command-line tool that sets your slack status for you depending on your location. Run the wizard to create a daily cron job, automating the process for the future.

Purpose

The team at F1V works in different offices depending on the day. We let our team know who is at which office by setting our slack status (e.g. use the 'house' emoji when we're working from home). Once you install this script, this process will be automated by a daily cron job.

This was created for an internal use at F1V. If you're not part of the team and want to use this, you will need to create a Slack app your workspace and get a token from it.

How to Use

Globally install the package

npm install -g slack-location-manager

Run the install wizard

Important: A token will be required for first-time setup, see below How to get a Token

slm install

Test run the script

This is the command that cron will call daily. You can use this command to test setting your status.

slm set

Uninstall

This will remove the locally stored token and any related cron jobs from your machine

slm uninstall

How to Get a Token
