15 Best Slack Apps for the Future of Work
July 22, 2021

If Slack has become a staple within your work culture, you know how valuable this team communication platform can be for organizing productive discussions from basically any work setting or scenario. While Slack is steadily growing in adoption over common communication channels like email, there’s an even larger world of productivity on deck at Slack ready to take you and your team into the future of work.

The Slack app directory is a mega-database of hundreds of integrations available to enhance collaboration and productivity for small teams up to entire enterprise organizations. These apps allow you to work simultaneously across tools to push and pull information, enhance each tool's functionality, increase adoption, and streamline communication asynchronously right from where you’re already working and collaborating.

In this article, check out the top 15 Slack apps productive teams are using today to build and support the future of work at their organization across calendar management, project management, status updates, HR and team building.

Calendar Management 

1. Reclaim.ai

Reclaim is a smart calendar tool for Google Calendar that helps you automatically block time for your tasks and routines across all of your work and personal calendars. Designed for anyone with a busy schedule, Reclaim helps align your priorities with your calendar, understand where your time is going every week, and find the best time for your important solo work sessions through smart time blocking. 


Reclaim Slack app lets you automatically sync your Slack status with both Google Calendar events and Zoom calls (even when they’re not on your calendar) and set Do Not Disturb so you can minimize distractions during important meetings and solo work sessions. You can also customize your Slack status rules to communicate more or less information, view your daily agenda via Reclaim, manage your Tasks and Habits, and create new Tasks to add to your calendar via Slack messages and commands. Use “/reclaim agenda” to display your schedule for the day or “/reclaim task” to create a task. You set the rules for your schedule, and Reclaim takes care of the rest.

Reclaim pricing: Free, $9 - $20/month for premium plans (100% free through 2021)

2. Calendly 

Calendly is a scheduling platform that makes it easy to find mutually available times to meet across multiple people's calendars, without the back and forth emails. Simply share your Calendly link that contains all of your available openings across your calendars, and the other person can easily pick a time that works for everyone. Calendly also offers a lot of customization options for rules, follow-ups and reminders to help you be a rockstar in your scheduling.



 The Calendly Slack app brings that same ease of use in your scheduling right into Slack. Quickly access and share scheduling links with your team directly via Slack without ever having to switch apps. Just use the “/calendly'' shortcut within messages to generate a rich preview so incoming schedulers can not only see the times that you’re available right in Slack, but also the details for the potential meeting.

Calendly pricing: Free, $8 - $12/month for premium plans 

3. Eventbot

Eventbot is a calendar tool specifically built for Slack that allows you to see your calendar and collect RSVPs for team events within messages and channels. This enables your team to use Slack as a central place for tracking who's in and who's out for team events. You can also create shared calendars for your Slack channels so everyone can see each other's availability and events. What’s great about Eventbot is they allow you to import and export events from all popular calendar apps, like Google Calendar, Outlook, Apple, and more, for a centralized view, even if you’re working across multiple calendar platforms.



With the Eventbot Slack app, you can create and edit recurring and non-recurring meetings, set reminders, and track holidays and sick days all from within Slack. Eventbot has three main shortcuts: “/events create”, “/events import”, and “/events calendar”. “/Events create” allows you to create events in any message or channel, “/events import” to import an event from any of their supported calendar platforms, and lastly, “/events calendar” lets you see events from any calendar you have synced. 

Eventbot pricing: Free, $29 - $99/month for premium plans

The Standuply Slack app automates daily huddles, retrospectives, 360 feedback reviews, and other team workflows via Slack. Instead of blocking time for 1:1 meetings, you can check in with your coworkers on quick status updates or questions asynchronously.
