Office Broadcast is a great way to encourage in-person collaboration in your office.
Each day Office Broadcast broadcasts to a specific channel who is going to be in the office that day or the next day (depending on how you have it set up). And it tells you anything happening in the office that day.
It encourages other people to book into the office if they want to meet with colleagues that are already booked in.
How to Set up Office Broadcast
Simply go to the Officely home and click on Office Broadcast!
Step 1: Choose which channel to broadcast to. You can choose any public channel such as #general or a channel specific to your office like #london-office.
Step 2: Choose whether you want to broadcast who is going into the office that day or the next day.
This is down to personal preference. If a lot of your colleagues have long commutes, it might be worth giving them more notice and set it to send the day before.
💡Officely tip! If you choose to send out the day before, it will send your message for Monday on the last working day of the week, not on the Sunday.
Step 3: Choose the broadcast time. If you chose to send the broadcast of who is the office today you will be offered morning slots. Whereas, if you choose to broadcast who is in the office the following day you will be offered evening slots.
Step 4: Click close and you're all done!
