Slack Integration

Slack is a popular and widely-used business communications platform. Thousands of businesses worldwide use Slack. It allows you to improve your overall business productivity by bringing together all the tools and communications in one place. You can prioritize conversations, have topic-oriented discussions in separate channels, and do much more. Slack offers seamless integration with the Google Suite so you can share documents and folders with your colleagues without any hassle.

With Slack, you can get a shared view of your team’s work and progress. With the shared channels feature, you can also collaborate and work with external teams and clients without having to resort to third-party email or chat tools.

What You Can Do with Slack

  • Complete flexibility and the power to manage your business communications
  • An intuitive and engaging interface where multiple teams can collaborate
  • Easy-to-follow conversations with the ability to archive the most important ones
  • Increase overall business efficiency and productivity by integrating with various third-party tools and plugins

To set up Slack manually, you need to configure your web apps in order to send notifications to Slack as and when any event occurs. However, you will also need to install custom webhooks into your apps for every event that you want to record.
This manual configuration can take up quite some time, depending on the volume of the events that you want to capture.
