How can I communicate with my assistant on Slack?

Once you have installed CalendarHero to Slack simply click on "CalendarHero" (under 'Recent Apps' in Slack) and directly message your assistant. Your assistant should respond to any direct message - you and your assistant will be having a private conversation. 

CalendarHero is one of the only scheduling platforms with advanced natural language for meeting requests. This means instead of using limited "/commands" you can ask your Meeting Assistant in natural language to schedule meetings for you. For example - say to your assistant: "Book a meeting with Mary and Sam next week for 2 hours".

If you don't find CalendarHero located in the Recent Apps section

Click on "Apps" and do a quick search for "CalendarHero. Click on the CalendarHero listing - and it will be added to your Slack Recent Ap

Chatting with your Assistant in a channel

In a shared channel, trying typing "/invite @CalendarHero" in the channel and this will add CalendarHero so that you can communicate with your assistant there as well. 

It's important to note that if you want to chat with your Assistant in a channel you will need to include "@CalendarHero" before every request or reply so your assistant knows you are talking to them. This isn't necessary if you chat with your assistant directly (by selecting "CalendarHero" under your recent apps) so we recommend using the direct method. 

Note: While you can chat with your assistant in a channel (and of course directly under Apps), it cannot be added to a DM (Direct Message)
