Description

I'd like to propose the use of https://wordpress.org/plugins/meeting-attendance-for-slack/, or a derivative of it, on the make sites.

The current approach (at least for normal users) involves manually going over all messages and reactions after a meeting in the Slack archives, this is both time consuming and frustrating in the long run and adds needless strain on the role of meeting organizers.

The plugin simplifies the process of keeping attendance, all that's needed is to supply archive links for the start and end of a meeting, and which channel it was held in, everything else is handled via a shortcode.

This means you can grab the link when you start the meeting, and when it ends, and there's no longer a need to go to the archives at all for the attendance part.

There's also a filter, slack_attendance_user_real_name, which provides the user object of each user that is matched, this can be used to return a .org user instead of a Slack name as we've already got a link between usernames that is used on the profiles page.

Is this still needed?

It would still be very useful, either that or some way to look up .org relations from a slack name at the very least, possibly even in bulk. I'm currently doing fancy Google queries hoping to find matches when possible, and running my own spreadsheets with relationship tables (not ideal of course). I do know others also do attendance, but I don't know who or how many at this time, but it used ot be more but it's a time consuming task at this point.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
