Hey, 

I’m wondering if there’s a way to link the working hours in Google Cal. so it auto updates my slack status when i’ve “gone home”, using zapier?

I want to do this without making an ‘out of office’ or ‘i’ve gone home’ event in gcal.

Anyone else wanting to do the same?

There’s no specific API for working hours as far as I’m aware, but you could probably just do this with Zapier scheduler

Thanks @Saastronomical - yeah that’s my fallback, but also trying to figure out for the team I work with. I’ll give it a go :)

Scheduler would definitely be the best option if you want to keep things in Zapier.

If you don’t mind looking at other apps, there are some that sync with Slack and Google Calendar and allow you to set OOO times. Clockwise is one example that you could check out to see if it would suit you - it can also automatically set you to do not disturb when your calendar says that you’re in a meeting.
