Turning on the integration
In order to use the integration, first, you need to turn it on in Calamari. Here is an article how to turn on the Slack integration
Log in with Slack (SSO)
Calamari allows you and your teammates to log in to Calamari by using your Slack accounts. There are few rules that you need to understand:
One Calamari company account can be connected with one unique Slack team.
Each employee is matched by email, that is why you need to have the same email in Slack and Calamari.
One of the biggest benefits of this integration is notifications. You can receive notifications directly in Slack instead of email. All Slack users can also be notified directly via private message. There are 2 types of notifications: private and organization-wide.
Where can I configure private notifications (as a user)?
You can find more information about notifications in "How to turn on/off notifications" article
When can I configure organization notifications (as an admin)?
It can be done in Configuration → Notifications → Add:
Submit a request / Mark your presence
A dedicated application allows you to:
Create a leave and remote work request
Check your entitlement
Quick access to your Calamari account or Help Center
Buttons / Approvals
Some notifications include buttons that allow you to interact with Calamari with a single click. This is the fastest way to approve or reject employee requests.
In Calamari, it is possible to set the accepted absence request/remote work requests or a reported break to synchronize with the status in Slack. This can be enabled in the Configuration →Slack:
The system will not show the status of the request made retrospectively (earlier, i.e. before enabling the integration).
Only after enabling the integration, when an employee will make a request for the future, the status will be visible in Slack next to the employee's name.
The status sync will look like this:
