Our new Slack integration gives you access to your Swell dashboard information—all from within Slack itself. Once you have successfully synced Swell to your Slack account, you can set up notifications for events and fetch information relating to orders, customers, and products.
There are two features within this integration:
Events: Slack notification messages triggered by an event on Swell
Commands: Slack commands used to retrieve desired information
Adding Swell to Slack
To add the Swell bot to your Slack workspace, it is recommended that you are signed in to Slack before proceeding through the integration process.
Connecting to your workspace:
From the Swell dashboard, navigate to Integrations.
Find the Slack tile, select Enable, and click Connect to Slack.
Once you are redirected to Slack, ensure the desired workspace is selected from the drop-down in the top right.
Choose the channel you wish to add Swell's slack bot to from the drop-down in the Where should Swell post? section. Then press Allow to add the integration.
Note: Once you have assigned a channel for the Swell bot, you will be able to use the Swell commands in any Slack channel within your workspace. The enabled notifications will only be posted within the channel you select.
Events are real-time updates provided to you in Slack by our Swell bot when certain actions occur within Swell. The notifications are sent automatically when the notification criteria are met. Our events cover most aspects of your store and can be customized by clicking Settings on the Slack integration tile in the dashboard's Integrations tab.
