Slack's newest feature makes it easy for your team to see what you're up to at a glance. Whether you're grabbing lunch, enjoying a vacation, or going into the zone for a few hours, Slack now lets you set a custom status to share what you're up to and choose the perfect corresponding emoji to set the tone.

Set your status in Slack.

We added a new Action to Slack's integration to support this feature. Use Zaps to set your status automatically when you're out of the office, or set a custom status on the fly with Zapier's Chrome extension, Push.
