Allstacks works with Slack to bring product and engineering leaders up-to-date and actionable information about how communication flows on your team. By capturing the sentiment and frequency of messages sent through your public channels, we can help you find and identify people who are typically at risk of being left out or experiencing more significant challenges. For example, by analyzing the sentiment of users’ communication across Slack [in addition to other tools used on your team], we can help you understand if employees are at risk of burnout or are experiencing an increase in negative emotions.
Connecting Slack to Allstacks
We integrate to your team's Slack by over OAuth and analyze activity in your team's public channels in your team. You’re able to connect multiple teams to a single Allstacks project, and information is presented in a unified metric. We only ask for permissions for your public information and do not monitor private communications.
Installing Slack with Allstacks is a breeze. Once you’ve created an account and a project, you click the “Add Tool” link, select Slack, and follow the OAuth prompts.
By default, Allstacks does not post any messages on the user’s behalf and operates in a “Read Only” mode. Thus, Allstacks only reads public message data and doesn’t post any notification or messages on the user’s behalf.
Sending Alerts from Allstacks to Slack
When you connect Slack to Allstacks, each team in Allstacks can be configured to post risk notifications in a Slack channel of choice. In the Risks page accessed via the left nav, you can click the "Notification Preferences" button to select your desired Slack channel. You can also pick which risks you want to be included in the slack digest by clicking the edit button on each risk. Any changes you make in the Risks page will be reflected in the following day's Slack digest.
