Integrate GLIDR with Slack

You can now connect your GLIDR project to Slack to make it more powerful than ever! For our Slack users, you can track updates like:

  • New cards (Ideas, Evidence, Experiments, Research, and Posts)
  • Updates to cards (validations, invalidations, files added, new members phase changes, and so on)
  • Comments and @Mentions

All GLIDR project updates are chronologically ordered and grouped by date in a Slack channel of your choosing. Each project can set up it's own integrations. You can have messages from multiple projects sent to the same channel, or you can send the messages from each project to a different channel. Updates are searchable in Slack and contain links to the corresponding card on GLIDR as well as a link to the project.

To begin, make sure you're an Admin in your Slack account and in your project on GLIDR.

Step 1: Create a new Incoming Webhook in Slack

  1. Install Slack's Incoming WebHooks app.
  2. Select Configure.
  3. Choose a channel to which GLIDR notifications will be posted.
  4. Click Add incoming WebHooks integration.
  5. Copy the WebHooks URL onto your clipboard.

Step 2: Set up GLIDR

1. In your project, click the settings icon in the upper left-hand corner, and select Project integrations.

2. Click Configure or Edit to get started setting up the integration.

3. Enter the WebHook URL from Slack, and enter the Slack channel where you'd like your GLIDR updates posted. Click Test & Enable to save and send a test notification to the Slack channel!
