Slack Bot

What is Happeo Slack bot and how to use it?

Happeo Slack bot helps you to show Happeo content in Slack Channels. Slack chat bot requires 2 things to work:

  1. Administrators need to enable Slack integration.
  2. Channel owner/editor needs to connect a Slack Channel with the Happeo Channel.

Enabling Slack integration to organisation


To enable Slack integration to your organisation you'll need a Happeo admin and a Slack workspace admin.

Enabling private Slack integration to a Channel

The process to enable a private Slack Channel integration to a Happeo Channel is a little different as opposed to a public one. 

In order to enable a private Slack Channel integration, you first have to add the @Happeo app as a member of that private Slack Channel. After you have done so, you can proceed with the usual steps that are required to integrate a Slack Channel to a Happeo Channel. 

Note: One Happeo environment can only be integrated into a single Slack Workspace.

Disabling Slack integration from a Channel 

Disabling a Slack integration from a Happeo Channel is quite similar to enabling one. Instead of the Slack command e.g., /happeo connect 123 you simply replace the "connect" with "disconnect" and paste the command into the Slack channel you wish to disconnect your Happeo Channel from.  

Note: make sure that you also toggle off the Slack integration in your Happeo Channel's settings! You can do so by navigating to the specific Happeo Channel > click on the Channel's "Settings" in the Channel menu on the top right > scroll down to "Integrations" > and toggle off "Slack".
