UnderstandBetter Integrates with Slack

We've partnered with Slack to make it easier for teams to have open communication. It's available to all teams who use Slack to make their work easier. And, it's as easy as clicking on a button.

This guide will help you activate the Slack integration via your UnderstandBetter account.

What does the Slack integration do?

  1. Requests teams to answer a question
  2. Reminds teams of a future Townhall
  3. Sends a summary of the teams answers
  4. Notifies the team when a Townhall has finished

Who can integrate Slack?

All team managers and owners can integrate their UnderstandBetter team with a Slack team. Only one Slack team can receive notifications. All team managers can remove the integration at any time.

How can I integrate Slack?

  1. Navigate to your Company Settings page.

    Click on your profile picture on the top right of the screen. A dropdown pops up, click on the "Settings" link.

  2. Scroll down to the "Integrations" tab.

    You will notice a list of third party integrations available for your UnderstandBetter team. Choose the "Slack" option and click on "Connect".

  3. Click on the "Add To Slack" button

    You can read through the actions of this integration and if you like it, click on the "Add To Slack" button. This is a button provided by Slack, and will redirect you to the Slack authentication page.

  4. Choose a Slack channel or private group

    If you are not logged into your Slack already, the page will prompt you to. Once you have done that one of two things can happen. If you have only one Slack team, you don't need to worry. If not, you will be asked to choose one of your Slack teams. Once you've done that, choose a Slack channel or private group to post notifications to.

    We suggest you to choose an open channel so that anyone who joins your company can quickly see what is going on at UnderstandBetter.

  5. A really, really complicated step that is going to drain your time!

    Just kidding! There is no step 5 really, your Slack integration is good to go! You can login to your Slack team, navigate to the channel or group you've chosen, and you should be seeing something like this.
