Integrate Slack with ClayHR

About Slack

Slack is an instant messaging app and a workplace through which you can send messages and files used for business. It connects people to the information that they need.

Slack Integration

Integrate your ClayHR account with Slack to get notified about new leave requests requiring your approval, Approve/Reject leave requests with a simple click, and get details of New Joiners and Announcements to receive real-time updates about what’s happening within your organization.

Please Follow the Steps Outlined Below to Enable Slack Chat Notifications for Yourself:

  1. Go to the setup menu (gear icon at the top right of the screen) and navigate to Third Party Integrations.
  1. Next, search for the “Slack chat” integration option from the search bar (at the top right). If unavailable, please follow these steps:
    (a) On the Third Party Integrations page, click the New Integration button and choose Messaging -> Choose Slack Chat.

          (b) Fill in your Integration name in the Name field.

          (c) Save the integration.

How to Use the Integration:

  1. Open Slack integration from the “Third-party” integrations and click on “Slack chat”.
  1. Click on the “Add to Slack” button, and initiate the process of installing the ClayHR Slack app in your workspace. You can select your Slack workspace from the top right corner and install the app.
  1. Now open the Slack application or use Slack in the browser with the newly installed ClayHR app.
  1. Go to the Slack Chat Integration and click on "Slack Integration Setup".

You can now toggle the notification configurations from here and select the Slack public channel for which you want to configure the notifications on Slack. For example, here you can select the "general" channel to get the notification whenever feedback is published on the user wall. After setting the notification configurations, make sure to hit the "Save Integration Setup" button to save the required changes.

  1. Now you can get notifications from the app in your workspace.
