SlackSet Status

Everyone can benefit from uninterrupted, deep work. Use this automation to signal to colleagues that you're in the middle of a project. Whenever you start a timer in Harvest, Zapier will update your status in Slack to match the project you're working on. That way, your colleagues will know why you're slow to respond, or to limit questions to that project only.

How this Harvest-Slack integration works

  1. A timer is started in Harvest
  2. Zapier sets your status in Slack to the project name + timer emoji
