/whereis #everybody? keeps track of user-submitted locations, and responds to queries about where team members are, or were. It provides an easy way to register the location you’re working (or living, for that matter), and a simple manner to retrieve the locations of your Slack team members.
After installation, the app adds a couple of convenient Slash Commands to your Slack workspace:
stores the specified location as your current location.
/iamat [first location; second location]
stores both locations as active from the same moment.
Note the semicolon between the two locations.
You can even specify more locations, if you want.
/whereis [@name] or
/whereis [#channel] or just
queries for the current location of a team member, or all the members in
a channel mentioned. If no argument is specified it will report the
locations of all members of the current channel. Oh, only the ones that
have registered their location; the app isn’t clairvoyant.
returns your current location, in case you forgot.
/whoisat [location] or
returns the team members that currently are, or where at that location.
/whereareyou [#channel] or just
invites a team member(s) to report their location. If no argument is specified
we will invite all members of the current channel to report their location.
The app can be found in the Slack App Directory, but it’s even quicker to install it using the button below.
