Lets teammates know when it’s best to connect automatically

Flexible work means our hours, meeting times, office location, time zones, and vacation schedules constantly change — and manually updating your Slack status can be a pain.

The Pulse app automates your status based on AI and your own rules.

Tells them when you’re in a meeting

Booked calendar events do not always reflect our availability. Meetings end early or run long.

Pulse smartly syncs with your calendar and meeting tools and uses intelligence to automatically detect and display when you’re ‘On a call’ or ‘In a meeting’.  Teams using Pulse can see who’s meeting together via color-coded emojis.

Automatically detects when you’re in focus

Nothing is more disruptive to work productivity than interruptions. Pulse uses AI to automatically display when you enter a focused state.  It can even snooze your notifications until you come out of focus.

Study: It takes 23 minutes to refocus after a distraction

Personalize your status via

app integrations

Toggle on App Collaboration which supports a growing list of 200+ popular business apps.

From Asana · ‘organizing tasks’ to Zendesk · ‘in support’, when you’re in a supported work-related app, your status will display a categorical view of the type of work you’re in.

Work side-by-side, when you want

Apps like Figma and Google Docs have ushered in a hyper-collaborative way for teammates to interact together online around a shared file.  Pulse brings this ability to all of your connected work apps!

When desired, enable app collaboration and automatically share files you’re working on as part of your status. Your teammates can then connect with you at exactly the right times.
