Yoink - Manage shared resources in Slack

Hi IH, we're looking for some #product-feedback-request!

Yoink is a product we came up with after numerous instances of kicking each other off of our staging environment while another person was using it to test a different branch.

With Yoink, whenever you want exclusive access to a shared resource, you ‘yoink’ it and it becomes reserved for you.

If the resource is already in use, the lock owner is reminded that other people are waiting and you can subscribe to a notification for when they’re done.

We’ve love to get your feedback and we’re more than happy to answer any questions!
