Trying to schedule meetings and quick chats for teams in multiple timezones is hard and time consuming.

What it does

Allows team members to

  • "check in" when they arrive at their desk.
  • ask Alexa if a colleague is available taking into account his/hers timezone and checkin status

Automatically detects the timezone of a member Makes sure team members are not bothered after hours unless overridden

How I built it

Using Alexa + lambda + dynamoDB

Challenges I ran into

Keeping the current "check in" status of each team member

Correlating that with his/her timezone when not explicitly set

What's next for "My Team"

Deploy it in offices across the globe, get feedback and iterate!
