With Epoch, you can announce an event on Slack with Epoch’s integration to make it a seamless experience for employees to confirm or mark their interest. You have the ability to announce one or more events in Slack channels within your organization’s Slack workspace.

There are 2 ways to announce an event on Slack:

  1. Pre-schedule a Slack message on Epoch’s web app on the Admin Dashboard.
  2. Use Epoch’s unfurl feature by copying and pasting the event link URL directly into a Slack channel.
