- Receive real-time notifications in Slack when a teammate mentions you in a comment, makes you the owner of a topic, changes a topic that you own, and more.
- Embed topic details in a Slack message just by pasting the topic's URL
To set up the Slack integration, visit Personal Settings | Notifications and click Connect to Slack. You'll be redirected to Slack, where you can install the Flat app for Slack into your Slack workspace.
If you have access to more than one Slack workspace, take a moment to ensure you pick the right one.
Flat will send you real-time notifications for all events in Flat that affect you, such as:
- When a teammate mentions you in a comment, assigns you a blocker, requests your follow-up on a thread, or makes you the owner of or a collaborator on a topic.
- When a teammate changes a topic that you own, collaborate on, or have subscribed to notifications for.
Notifications are sent in a private DM channel between you and Flat, not a shared team channel.
You can embed topic details in Slack simply by pasting a Flat topic URL into any Slack channel. Flat will enrich your message with details about the topic like the title, stage, owner, and description.
You can reply to Flat comments directly from Slack. When Flat sends you a notification in Slack about a thread, the notification includes a Reply button. Click Reply to open a popup where you can read the full thread and compose your reply.
To remove the Slack integration, visit Personal Settings | Notifications and click Disconnect from Slack. You should also visit your Slack workspace's "Manage apps" section and remove the Flat app for Slack.
