The feeds command

You can subscribe to a personal or organisation wide calendar feed to see leave requests in your favourite calendar app. To get started use the following command:

/leevebot feeds
You'll be presented with several options:

Personal Feed: Will generate a subscription feed of only your approved leave requests.
Organisation Feed: Will generate a subscription feed of all your organisations approved leave requests.

Clicking either of these options will prompt you to add the feed to your calendar automatically.

Set a name for the subscription and an auto-refresh interval and you're good to go.

The users leave comment and who approved the leave request are added to the calendar event description.
