Integrating Slack with Applauz

published: February 13, 2020

If your workforce already uses Slack as their main communication channel, integrating Applauz into your Slack workspace will allow your employees to stay updated on what's happening on Applauz. As of February 2020, users will also be able to perform basic actions like recognizing and posting to the News Feed without having to switch environment. This will keep your employees connected and engaged to each other through Slack.

If you don’t already use Slack, all you have to do is create an account.

What we'll cover:

 

How to Integrate

Note: Only Applauz Account Owners will be able to perform this task.

  1. Login to your Applauz Account and navigate to your Program Settings.
  2. Scroll down to locate the Slack App card.
    Slack-App-Card
  3. Click the “Add to Slack” button to begin the process.
  4. Select the correct Slack Workspace & Slack Channel you would like Applauz notifications to appear on.Add-to-Slack
  5. Click the “Allow” button when you are ready.

Great Job! Now you can login to your Slack Workspace and start engaging with your employees. You will also receive an email from Slack confirming the integration.

 

Applauz Notifications  New-Tag-1

Whenever an action is performed on Applauz (a new Post, Recognition, or Poll) a notification will appear in your chosen Slack Channel with a link to visit the Applauz News Feed.

Posting through Slack  New-Tag-1

Participants no longer need to go on Applauz to Post on the News Feed. Create a post directly from Slack and it will post in both places maximizing audience viewing.

  1. Either write a new message on slack, or locate the message you would like to post from Slack (it can be from any channel in your workspace).
  2. Hover over the message with your mouse to see the actions menu. Select “More Actions”.
    SlackPost
  3. Select the Applauz Bot message action “Post/Publier” to open the action modal.
    Menu-EN-Post
  4. Modify the message (optional), and click “Next” when you are ready.
    NewPost
  5. Add a GIF to your post (optional), and click “Submit” when you are ready.
