Let Slack nag you that it’s time to return that commuter pass

Another week, and yet another Slack integration here at Earth People.

This time we’ve added an integration to the public transport system here in Stockholm.

At Earth People we like to use public transportation when going to meetings with clients. That’s why we have bought a couple of commuter passes that we can use whenever we need to go to a meeting.

It works great. But there is one problem however: we only have a few cards, so when you return from the meeting you must remember to return the card so others can use it. And that’s were our latest integration comes into play:

Screenshot showing a message posted to a slack channel, with the date and time of a journey Yup, shortly after the card has been used, a message from the card will appear in our slack channel. That works pretty good as a reminder.

And as a plus feature it also shows how much cash that is left on the card, so we will also know when it’s time to refill the card.

There you have it: another super useful integration for Slack.

Oh! And thanks to mysl for their API-wrapper for “Mitt SL”, that led us into the right direction when researching the API.
