Slack integration

About Slack

Slack is the collaboration hub that brings the right people, information and tools together to get work done. From FTSE 100 companies to corner shops, millions of people around the world use Slack to connect their teams, unify their systems and drive their business forwards.

Why Slack?

One platform for your team and your work

All the features of Slack work together so you can too.

Core functionalities

  • It’s all happening in the channel
    Follow everything related to individual topics, projects or teams in their dedicated channels.
  • History you can see and search
    Projects end, teams change and Slack saves everything. Rather than trying to remember, easily find what you’re looking for.
  • Work more closely with other companies
    Keep clients, vendors or partners in the loop by sharing a channel in Slack. Work moves faster when conversations do, too.

Transfer of Data

  • Daily update
    Stay on top of what’s happening in your team or department with the daily update message. Every morning, Personio will send an update with today's absences, birthdays, anniversaries and new-joiners straight to relevant Slack channels. To ensure that the update is relevant for members of each channel, the message can be sent to multiple channels and filtered by team, department and office.
  • Automatic Status updates
    Your employees Slack status will automatically be updated based on their absences in Personio.
  • Absence requests
    Absences can now be requested directly in Slack. Simply navigate to the Personio app in Slack, enter the command "Personio" and click on “Request Absence”. Afterwards, similar to the Personio web app, the absence type, the period as well as (if necessary) a substitute can be selected. After submitting the request, the approver is notified in Personio.
