How to enable and use the Slack integration with Multicollab Plugin
Kudos to the users of Multicollab! Good News! We finally present you with the Multicollab App that integrates with Slack and provides helpful notifications regarding the Editorial Workflow (Comments, Suggestions, Mentions, Assignments, etc.).
If you and your team use Slack to communicate internally for content collaborations, you can receive crucial editorial workflow notifications in the Slack channel of your choice.
Suppose your company is actively using Slack as a go-to internal messaging app. With our native integration with Slack, users can track all of their editorial activities in a single place. Once the integration of the Multicollab App with Slack is successful, based on the actions (commenting, suggestion, mentioning, assigning, resolving, etc.) performed by the users, the Multicollab App will provide the following Slack notifications -
  • New Comment
  • Mentions team members in the comments
  • Reply to comment
  • Resolve a comment thread
  • Assign comment threads
  • Add an attachment to the comment/reply
  • New Suggestion Accept / Reject Suggestion
Here's what the above notifications look like when they show up in a Slack channel:
