Create GCal Events in Slack
This app adds a slash command,
/cmd create-event, to your Slack workspace.
Running the command in your workspace will create a calendar event based on the
text following the command. Additionally, tagging users in your Slack channel
within the command text will invite them to the event by email based on the
email they used to join the Slack workspace.
Use it to quickly set up catch ups or meetings with people in your Slack
This app uses the
quickAdd method of the gcal.events
API in Autocode to parse out event information from a given input. It also uses
a regex to inspect the command text for @-mentioned Slack users, and looks up
the emails of mentioned users. For example, if a user runs the command like this:
/cmd create-event Lunch with @Jacob Lee at noon tomorrow
The app will create the following event:
And will send a confirmation message in Slack:
It will also recognize that
Jacob Lee was mentioned in the event text, look
up his email, and invite him to the event.
