Scratching my own itch!! 🕐 🕟

I work in a distributed team and we use Slack for communication

Often at times, when setting up meetings I tend to forget that "3.30 PM tomorrow" could mean completely different times for different people

This gave birth to a weekend long side project to solve this problem of my own

More updates on this, coming soon

Teaser: it will be called Timely, and would be a free forever Slack app

EDIT: It's ready, here: https://www.indiehackers.com/product/timely-2/launched-on-indiehackers--MFjx0c5PNo1ToP6ro9n

    This is something that I often find myself juggling with meeting people in different timezones. Looking forward to seeing your solution :)

    1. 1

      Hopefully you'll also find this useful. I will be soft launching on IH shortly!!

  2. 2

    Looking forward to use your app since we are also in similar position.

        Awesome. Thanks I will use and give you feedback about it :-)

      You might have to wait just a couple more hours as I am putting together the landing page
      I hope it will be worth the wait

    Very cool idea! I've had this same issue when emailing indiehackers from all over the world.

      1. 1

        Interesting design. The illustrations could use some work however. I would suggest going on Manypixels.co to find some nice flatline ones. The illustrations blend into the background which isn’t good. Try using a white background instead maybe?

        Also, the hero section is very blank. Could you add a screenshot of the slack app inaction?

        Hope this helps :)

      Hey Brayden!! This is just be a slack app for now. But maybe I'll hack a chrome extension too if people like this.

      Also, I have seen your amazing pages on BuildFaster and am looking forward to hearing your feedback on the landing page that will be live very very soon :D

    Scratching your own itch is always the best way to start a project. Who knows, maybe others have that same itch. :)

    Congrats, and looking forward to seeing your startup bloom. Consider building in public, too.

    1. 1

      But for now, here is the final thing

    2. 1

      Hey @matteing
      I always enjoy reading other people building in public. I will surely document the further journey for Timely
