Put your Slack status on autopilot

It stops interruptions, encourages collaboration based on your schedule, increases daily focus time, makes your team more connected, and so much more.

Adjusts with your work hours

Pulse puts an end to the ‘Always On’ culture by helping manage your team’s expectations around your availability — so teammates know when is best to connect with you and respect your boundaries.

Displays when you’re in a meeting

Pulse smartly updates your status and ‘Do not disturb’ settings whenever you’re on Zoom, Google Meet, Skype, Slack Huddle, or any video/audio tool.  Teams using Pulse can see who’s meeting together via color-coded emojis (currently available for Zoom and Google Meet).

Protects your focus time

Without in-person cues, your workspace teammates have no way to know when you’re in deep focused work. Pulse uses AI to automatically display when you enter a focused state so your teammates know not to disturb.  You can also set calendar rules which change your status to show you’re focusing during blocked focus time or events marked as focus.

Flows with your calendar

Connect your calendar with Pulse and your status will change automatically based on your events.  Set rules based on keywords and create the message you’d like to appear whenever these meetings, or planned events occur.

Shares when you’re open to collaborating

Let your teammates know when you’re working in common work apps as a way to invite communication and collaboration at the perfect time.  You can choose to share the basic type of work you’re amidst, or decide to share the detailed file-names of the app you’re working in.
