Sync Teamflow with Slack

Teamflow is a virtual office for your team to hang out in. Bring back the presence of being in the office, the energy of working in the same room, the spontaneity of hallway conversations — the joy of feeling like a team. 

Teamflow shows your video in a bubble on a virtual office floor plan — you can move that bubble around, like in a video game, and only hear people around you. Your team can hang out in this space, and when you want to chat with someone, you can just walk over to them and say Hi! — just like you would in real life. No more Zoom scheduling nightmares.

Our Slack integration allows you to easily share your Teamflow link with your colleagues and start a meeting spontaneously. With Teamflow in Slack you can: 

  • Share a link with colleagues to your main floor.
  • Share a link with colleagues to a specific room.
  • Notify a Slack channel when colleagues are in Teamflow.
  • Sync your status between Teamflow and Slack.
In this article we will show you:
