What is Slack?

Slack is a messaging app for businesses that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate.

💡The advantages of using Factorial app in Slack

The Factorial app in Slack allows you to receive a daily summary of what's happening in your company. You will also be able to clock in and out from Slack via some convenient slash commands.



Install Factorial in Slack

Install the new Factorial App with the button below!

⚠️ You will be asked to grant Factorial some permissions in order to perform actions in your Slack workspace. Rest assured that the permissions include only the minimum necessary to provide the required functionality.



Daily summary

Factorial will send a daily summary of your company's activity directly to the user.

This new version of the Factorial App is personal and will show the information related to each employee.

👀 For those who need to display the daily summary on a channel, we are preserving the old version.



Clock-in and clock-out from Slack

To do this, there are 3 commands available:

  1. Use the /clock_in hh:mm command to clock in at a certain time
  2. Use the /clock_out hh:mm command to clock out at a certain time
  3. Or use just /clock to clock in or clock out at the current time

❗Be aware that you can only:

  • Clock-in in the past
  • Clock-out when a shift is open in the past
  • Enter a valid time from 00:00 to 23.59
