Change Slack status when Focus mode is on

Hey there,

I just wanted to share a little Siri Shortcut automation I made to set custom Slack status when Focus mode is on. I have a focus mode for deep work. When it’s on, I don’t receive notifications from Slack. To inform my coworkers that I’m just trying to focus and will be back in a few hours, I set “Focusing…” status using Slack API. It’s similar to what Apple does in iMessage.

I described how to do it step-by-step here. I hope it can be useful for someone :slight_smile:
