Frequently asked questions

Do I need a team plan?
Probably not. Heads Down is designed for individuals. We did not want to build something that requires team-wide adoption to be useful. The team offering is for those teams who need additional access controls, custom data policies, and prefer unified billing.
Can this control multiple Slack workspaces at once?
Yes. There is no cap on the number of workspaces you can integrate with. You can select which workspaces Heads Down should manage.
Where can I see upcoming features?
You can see what upcoming features we have planned by viewing our public roadmap. While there you can also submit an idea and upvote existing ones.
Will you add support for Microsoft Teams, Discord, or Mattermost?
If you would like to see additional integrations, please submit the idea and we can add it to our roadmap if there is enough interest.
Is integration with Slack required?
Nope. Slack integration is very helpful as a way to communicate your status with your team, but without it you can still use Heads Down to help manage your focus.
Do you store messages from Slack?
We do not store any message contents from Slack. We store metadata such as permalinks and author identifiers only to show you a message was missed. If Slack gives us an option to receive this information without the message body, rest assured we will update our permissions to take advantage of it day one.
For those who want an additional layer of security, contact us about an option to self-host a Slack proxy.
