How do I install the Slack App?

Adding the Short Break From Work app to your Slack Workspace couldn't be easier.

All you need to do is

  1. Click the "Add to Slack" button at https://slack.shortbreakfromwork.com or search for us in the Slack App directory and click the "Install Now" button.
  2. Authorise the app (more details on what that means later)
  3. Read the instructions that the app sends you
  4. And you are done!

So what can people in your Slack do now?

Security concerns

  • We ONLY receive the messages when you explicitly mention the app. Any conversation that happens in your workspace, stay in the workspace. This is a deliberate choice.
  • All access tokens are encrypted
  • All communication is encrypted over https
  • Only users who interact with the app are saved

What we save

  • The email, and timezone of the user
  • A record of the breaks a user has taken
  • The slack users id, nickname and the slack workspace id
  • Thats all
