Okay, but what happens when I click “Add to Slack”?
You will be asked by Slack to authorize Meekan’s robot to join your Slack team. He will appear as a new bot user, and will DM you a short welcome message with some instructions to get started.
Meekan will not message other people or join any of your team’s channels, until you /invite him to join. Some teams prefer to create a new #scheduling channel, and invite him there so keep the noise out of #general, but this is, of course, up to you to decide how you’d like to work with him.
Why is robot asking me to connect my calendar?
Meekan is a scheduling assistant, so he needs access to your calendar to find out when you’re busy, add new meetings at your command, and let you know if you double booked a spot by mistake (and tons of other things). We don’t share your calendar info with others – not on your team, and certainly not with outsiders, just your free/busy state when asked for a specific meeting to be organized.
