Your org uses Slack and your team members like the option of receiving important reminders via Slack instead of (or in addition to) email. As an admin, you want to your team to get PlusPlus notifications on Slack.


Turn on the Slack integration, following these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Integrations > Slack and click Connect.

    This submits the app to your Slack team’s admin for approval.

  2. Follow up with your Slack admin to approve the PlusPlus app via Slack's Settings & administration > Manage apps page.
    You can also ask your admin to go to https://[your workspace name]

  3. After approval, return to Settings > Integrations > Slack and click Connect again.

  4. On the page that opens, approve the install.

  5. Back at Settings > Integrations > Slack, turn on Allow PlusPlus to send Slack notifications.

  6. Save your changes.

Your team is set up to receive notifications via Slack!

Should you want to turn off notifications for all of your people, uncheck the “Allows PlusPlus to send Slack notifications” box at Settings ⇒ Integrations.
