Update Slack Status

Update your Slack status text


Want to update your Slack status using a shortcut?

This shortcut accepts text as an input, or will prompt you for text if run directly.

You'll need a Slack OAuth Token to use this, but it's easy to get one. Instructions are in comments in the shortcut, or go to jake.cat/shortcuts for a simple guide.

Note: this will leave your current status emoji untouched. The Slack API requires a text emoji to update it (e.g. :heart_eyes_cat:) and there's not a good way to choose an emoji or have the user type one within Shortcuts. Feel free to amend the shortcut as needed if you want to have a list of emoji to choose from as well.
