Bob Actions and Notifications on Slack

If you're anything like us, you see Slack as a crucial messaging system for business. We use both Slack and Bob every day, and appreciate the need for business tools to work hand in hand.

Get the most out of Bob

Enabling the Slack integration with Bob allows you to carry out several Bob actions and get updates through the Slack platform:

  • Receive daily updates on your information in Bob

  • Request time off or time away from the office (read all about it here)

  • Approve or decline time off and time away requests

  • Clock in and clock out 


You can access, review, and approve time-off requests, mark to-dos as done, and clock in and out from your Bob home dashboard within Slack. Use the /bob help command to discover more!
