Spacetime can be used in Slack by inviting the @spacetime bot to any channel.
When you mention the Spacetime bot with @spacetime, we’ll automatically translate that message into the relevant timezones. For instance,
will translate 7am local time to all the time zones your teammates are spread across:
If you only want to see the time translated into a few specific teammates’ time zones, you can mention them in the message, as well. For instance,
@spacetime @andrew 5pm
will localize 5 PM my time in Andrew's time zone, but exclude the rest of the team:
You can mention @spacetime and your teammates anywhere in the message, as well as putting the time wherever it fits naturally. For instance,
Hey @sam @josh how about a meeting at 7am @spacetime
would still localize the times for @sam and @josh and reply like the example above.
Note: If you would like to avoid a noisy channel when using @spacetime, turn on Reply Using Threads in the Team settings:
The bot will reply to your @spacetime command as a threaded message instead of directly into the channel.
