Slack is a collaboration hub where you and your team can work together to get things done. From project kick-offs to budget discussions – and everything in between – Slack’s got you covered. Read more about slack.

Get update information direct into your slack channel

In slack everything is subdivided into channels, so it is possible to group individual teams in the different channels or to complete a specific project.

Due to this separation, it is possible to specifically post the update information of this page in a channel. An update message is sent directly and appears live in the channel. So it is possible to work with several people on the same update and distribute this without further delay.

Which requirements are necessary?

  • Slack Account, the function can be used with a free account
  • Channel, in which the update messages are posted
  • Follower Status at this site

How do I make the connection?

First, log in to Slack and go to your workspace. On your workspace you have to add a new app. In the search bar enter webhook and click install at the Incoming webhooks.
