You know the feeling. A notification pops up for a meeting that starts in 1 minute. The meeting room has some bizarre name — you’re positive you’ve seen it before — yet you have no idea where it is. Time to panic!
We’ve all been there. This happened to me so many times when I worked at Braintree that I decided to do something about it. Here’s the ideal workflow:
- slack notification for a meeting comes in
- you have no idea where the room is
- you type right in Slack:
/wheres Millennium Parkor whatever your conference room is named
- it shows you a map
- you get to your meeting on time!
I did the majority of the work for this project a few months ago, but I didn’t have time to do a proper writeup, or even a launch for that matter.
