Introducing the Slack Calendar Connector

A few months ago Slack announced Google Calendar integration, so we decided to take it a step further and add Apple iCloud, Office 365, Microsoft Exchange and Outlook.com integration for Slack users too, in the form of the Cronofy Calendar Connector.
Using the Cronofy Calendar Connector for Slack you can make sure that anyone in your channels can post reminders before an event starts and post updates when an event changes.

Calendar Connector features
All your team benefits from the Slack Calendar Connector, so no matter which calendar service(s) they prefer to use and how many calendars they have, they enjoy seamless event reminders and updates.
You can set custom reminders before events, get daily and weekly digests, get private reminders about events (simply use @slackbot to keep them to yourself), and choose which of your calendars and channels are integrated. You have full control over event reminders, updates, times, digests, and more. There are no limits on how many users or calendars can be connected, so go crazy. It’s completely free.
Need some inspiration? You could use the Slack Calendar Connector for:
- Deadline reminders (including project stages, content, follow-ups etc.)
- Staff birthday reminders and messages
- Meetings (especially recurring ones, e.g. for team catch-ups or sprints)
- Holiday greetings and reminders
- Travel arrangements
- To do list and task summaries
- Client appointment reminders
