Good stuff! It seems like this is tailored towards analytics teams. Does @47Lining have a BI tool like Looker or QuickSight in front of their Redshift cluster? In those cases, the user base is bigger and may only need an occasional quick report on demand. I suspect that it would be too difficult to have them vote or send a Slack command when they need a report off-hours.
