Query Google Calendar using Slack commands

You can query your Google Calendar account from Slack using the '/yoke' command.

Connecting Yoke to Slack

Configure a “Slash Command” listed under “DIY Integrations & Customizations” in the Slack Integrations page with these fields:

Once the integration is configured, you can click the “Slack integration” link in the profile drop-down (top-right of the screen) to obtain the /yoke login [user] [token] command which links your Yoke and Slack accounts.

That's it! You have connected Slack to your Yoke board, and can query Google Calendar and 48 other applications from the comfort of your Slack chatroom. Read more about the Slack-Yoke integration.

If you are a new Yoke user, you must first create cards that connect to Google Calendar. Yoke supports cards that query events in any calendar in your Google Calendar account.

/yoke list shows all the cards on your Yoke board. Here's a sample response:
