GeoSlack is a simple Slack integration that lets your team plot and share their locations on a map 🗺
If your team works in the same office building, GeoSlack can make it easy to keep everyone in the loop on who’s running late to work. Team members can bookmark GeoSlack which will post the member’s location (optionally auto-refresh your location) and their estimated time of arrival (ETA) in a Slack channel.
It’s a one-click solution to tell your team, “I’m on my way!”. You can even visit GeoSlack to see everyone’s location on a single map.
Your team will thank you when they see you’re going to be 10 minutes late due to the traffic downtown and know they must delay that early meeting 📅
This is necessary for the GeoSlack app to post a message in slack with a map/location of the user.
The following assumes you want to deploy GeoSlack to Heroku.
However, you can deploy to any server that can run Node.js and change environment variables.
APP_URL- From “domains”, format:
SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL- From Step 1 above, format:
GMAPS_API_KEY- From Google Maps click to get api key
DESTINATION- optional address or coordinates of your team’s workplace
This is optional but will allow you to type a keyword and get a link to the GeoSlack app.
