Slack Integration

Real Scheduler now offers Slack integrations. For those not yet aware of what Slack is, it is an awesome communication tool that allows people (and bots) to communicate with each other about what is going on. But it is so much more than that. People, Teams, and Companies that start using Slack come to love it for its power and effectiveness in the workplace. It is a phenomenal tool that we feel will leave email in the dust.

Real Scheduler can be set up to post all sorts of important events to your Slack channels. Here we will show you an example of how it can work.

A field tech changes a job status to “closed”:

As soon as the status is changed, the staff in the office (or whoever in your organization that is set to receive the listening channel in Slack) sees the Slack feed:

The implementations we offer can include features that take advantage of Slack’s power, including messages about techs running late (that can be conveyed to the client), a tech’s current location (can be triggered when they are on site or when they are not where they are supposed to be), alerts about equipment needing maintenance, or any messages that need to be conveyed by Real Scheduler.

For those who have not yet tried Slack, we highly recommend it as a productivity tool.
