If you don't find CalendarHero (Meeting Assistant) 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 "@CalendarHerot" 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)
