There are two different ways to embed Slack into a website. One focuses on allowing website visitors to chat with you directly in Slack. In the other, you embed the entire channel on a website.

On this page, you’ll discover how to integrate Slack to chat with visitors to sell more, convert more visitors, and offer great customer service.

Can I add Slack to an existing account?

Yes! If you've already signed up for Social Intents separately - Great! Simply go to our Integrations link once logged in, to enable the integration.

I'm not seeing chat messages in Slack?

If you've chosen a Private channel when setting up the integration or changed the default Authorization scopes, we won't be able to send messages to Slack. Either use a Public channel when setting up the integration, or invite our Chat Bot to your Private channel.

Need to change channels?

If you've already added Slack and need to modify these settings or still don't see chat requests come through, please remove and re-add our app by logging into Slack. Choose 'Apps & Integrations' from the top-left menu, then 'Manage' on the top right in the App Market. Choose 'Live Chat' then 'Remove App'. Now click 'Add to Slack' above to re-add our App.

Setting your Chat to Online or Offline

We support an online and offline schedule in your chat settings. You can also use /livechat commands "/livechat online" and "/livechat offline" and "/livechat status" to turn your chat online, offline, or check your availability.

How Can I use Slack Slash Commands?

In your active chat on Slack, type /livechat into the message area to see a list of slash commands available.

Can I set up multiple channels?

Yes. You can create multiple chat apps and set up a channel for each app. Simply run through the Slack set up from within your app settings.
