Slack Integration

Connect Slack to Teaminal

To hook up your Slack account to your Teaminal team, visit the integrations page and click on the “Add to Slack” button.

After you connect, Teaminal will map Slack users to Teaminal users based on email address. If you have users in Slack that aren’t in Teaminal, they won’t be connected.

Standups with Jira

Once connected, the Teaminal bot will take care of reminding your team about standup and collecting status updates:

Whenever someone on your team checks in, their update is neatly formatted and broadcast to the channel of your choice in Slack. Blocking issues are highlighted in red:

Teaminal Slack Settings

To customize how your team will receive update broadcasts from Teaminal in Slack, open the “Slack” panel on the Integrations page.

By default, Teaminal will broadcast a check-ins individually as they are published, and a summary report at the team summary time. However, you can enable publication of a report’s check-ins to a single thread by enabling “Broadcast check-ins into a summary thread” in the Slack settings in Teaminal.

When this option is enabled, the summary report is published as the anchor message of the thread, and is continuously updated as check-ins are published to the thread.


Resetting your connection

If your Slack connection isn’t working properly, try removing and adding the connection back again. None of your existing data will be affected.

To do that, visit the Integrations page and click on the “Remove from Slack” button. When the page reloads, click on the “Add to Slack” button.

Can’t find private channel

Teaminal can only be used in public channels at this time - it can’t be used in private channels.

Switching channels

If you’d like to switch the channel Teaminal is broadcasting to, go to your team’s settings page and select a new channel in the “Slack channel” dropdown. None of your data will be affected.
