Using the Slack Integration

Using the Slack Integration

Here you can find instructions on how to set up your account to go through to the Slack application.
This is a one time set up for all platforms that you currently use the software on, and the process should take no more than a couple of minutes:

1. Create a Slack app (if you don't have one already) Click here
Pick a name, choose a workspace to associate your app with (bearing in mind that you'll probably be posting lots of test messages, so you might want to create a channel for sandbox use), and then click Create App.

2. Enable Incoming Webhooks
After creating, you'll be redirected to the settings page for your new app (if you are using an existing app, just load its settings via your app's management dashboard). From here select the Incoming Webhooks feature, and click the Activate Incoming Webhooks toggle to switch it on.

3. Create an Incoming Webhook
Now that Incoming Webhooks are enabled, the settings page should refresh and some extra options will appear. One of those options will be a really helpful button marked Add New Webhook to Workspace, and you should click it.

What this button does is trigger a shortcut version of the installation flow for Slack apps, one that is completely self-contained so that you don't have to actually build any code to generate an Incoming Webhook URL

You'll be sent back to your app settings, and you should now see a new entry under the Webhook URLs for Your Workspace section, with a Webhook URL that'll look something like this (copy it):

4. Go to the "Integrations" page.

5. Put the URL you copied from Slack in the "Webhook URL" box and click "Save" button.

It's that simple!
