Slack for Wordpress FAQ

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.
