  1. Add Custom Field type that's updateable via Slack commands

    For example, a “what I'm working on” field that could also be updated via Slack command and easily viewed. For example, input in Slack would look like: '/Pingboard What I'm Working On: etc. etc. etc'...

      • Disable Out of Office status updates that occur before the summary is posted

        The out of office bot posts both status updates that are relevant for that day and a daily summary once a day (Jane submits a status at 6:30am, which is posted, yet Jane is also included in the daily summary that is posted at 8am, for example). Any status updates that apply to that day but are submitted before the scheduled summary should be ignored and rolled into the summary. Any status updates that are submitted after the summary are then posted in real time.

          • Have Pingboard update employees name in Slack sidebar when someone is out of office

            It would be really useful if Pingboard could change someones display name in Slack to show that they are out of the office.

            So if my name is "John Doe", then when I am out of the office my Slack name in the side bar would change to: "John Doe (OOO)"

            • Post future out of office status updates to Slack when they're submitted

              Currently, out of office status updates are only posted on slack when the status update is for the same day of the submission. If I post a status update for a planned vacation in the future, for example, it is not posted in Slack. This results in the team unnecessarily not knowing in advance when someone has plans to be out of office for a future date.

              • Auto-responder for Slack or HipChat using Pingboard data

                Pingboard should notify anyone who messages me directly in Slack that I am out of the office or in a meeting based on the data in Pingboard.

                • Post status updates in different Slack channels

                  We have a lot of people muting the outofoffice Slack channel because it includes everyone in the company and it's just not relevant to them. We've had a lot of requests for us to configure it to send status updates for the people in a team to that team's Slack channel.

                  • HipChat integration should allow a HipChat room to select a team or subteam or individuals

                    When you configure the integration, you should be allowed to specify a team or sub-team for which you want to see events. So a team's room can have event that pertain to that team. You should also be able to add specific other individuals as well.

                    • Change time of the daily update to Slack / HipChat for out of office statuses

                      We currently have 5 channels that send a group update each morning. 4 of the channels pull from Google Calendars and for each I am able to chose the time of the daily update to users in the channel - 10am EST.

                      The 5th channel pulls from a BOT we have integrated with Pingboard and this channel send updates to users in the channel much earlier - 8am EST and I do not see an option to change that.

                      We want that 5th channel to also update at 10am EST

                      • Don't post Slack updates when no one is out of office for the day

                        I setup the integration with Slack, however the bot updates everyday, (even when no one is out of the office). No need to share those updates.

                          Right now, it just says "Business Trip" and then lists everyone who's on a business trip -- can we also have it list WHERE they are.

                              Similar to creating a "team" calendar in the Google integration, can we use the Hipchat Pingboard bot to post status updates in different teams' Hipchat rooms?

                                Currently it sends out the status notification at 8am PST. Since we're a global company, it might be nice to have it send out notifications at 8am in other timezones as well.

                                    Be able to send messages in slack @pingboardbot to update status in pingboard. This would allow users to not have to log into pingboard to change their status and improve the rate at which people actually bother to do it.
