What is Betterworks Slack integration? 

The Betterworks Slack integration allows you to get notifications about activity in Betterworks right in your Slack. Now you can see cheers, nudges, @mentions, and other activity in the same tool you use to communicate and get work done every day.

Note: This integration is meant to be used with Slack's Standard and Plus tiers. Enterprise is not fully supported. For additional information on uses of the Slack integration, visit the associated Help Center article.

Setting Up the Slack Integration

Betterworks administrators can set up and configure the integration for their organization, and end-users can choose to activate it on the Notifications page. The integration uses Slack’s bot feature to post notifications to users. The Betterworks bot will send you a direct message when updates to your objectives or the objectives you follow occur in the platform.

Navigate to the Betterworks Admin page > Select the Integrations option > Click the Set Up option next to the Slack integration > Select the Add to Slack button:


Click the Authorize button and you're all set!


What are the benefits of Slack integration?

Real-time notifications are sent in the same tool you use to communicate and get work done every day, so you can stay up-to-date with the goals that are most important to you and your organization.

Can I use the Betterworks Slack integration for a select group of users?

No. Once the Betterworks Slack integration is enabled, it’s enabled for your entire organization as long as your users have Slack accounts.

Does the Betterworks Slack integration work with multiple teams?

No. The Betterworks Slack integration only works with one Slack team per organization. If your organization uses multiple teams in Slack, consolidate into one team and start using channels to separate your conversations.

How easy is it to set up the Slack integration?

It’s pretty easy. You just need to be a Betterworks Administrator to enable the integration.
