It may not be totally what you are looking for (We don't plan looking at slack, just overall resource loading) but are you aware of the Total Slack module available in the Apps Marketplace. It provides a custom field to look at the total slack for any task, milestone or project.
slack time per task
I am using Clarizen not only to "track" project progress, but also (and above all) to actually build the Schedule... That means that because my project is moving all the time, I need to be able to know what task can take longer without any problem, with small problems or with high stakes.
That should be the purpose of the Slack / float item.
I absolutely need to know what is my free float and what is my total float for my tasks, so that I know what I can move: I cannot afford to just move one task and check if something has moved...
Unfortunately, I cannot find the float / slack (whether it be free or total) attribute of a work item. I would like to suggest you adding it (I am surprised to be the only one who works that way).

That's very helpful, thanks. I'll have a look at it.
Unfortunately, what I am missing the most is actually the free slack, not the total slack...
Worth checking, though, thanks.
Any chance we can now see float/slack in clarizen?
I'm having trouble approving apps due to infosec restrictions
