How can I send my viral and referral alerts to Slack?

That's easy! Navigate to Notifications inside your dashboard then select a viral or referral alert and click "Add to Slack." This will redirect you to a Slack authorization screen where you can select the appropriate #channel to post to. If you want to change the channel at a later today, de-enable and Add to Slack button will re-appear and you can select a different #channel. 

If this is a brand new alert, you WILL NOT see the "Add to Slack" button until you click "Create & Subscribe." You can do this for an unlimited amount of viral or referral alerts. However, this integration does not support digests or leaderboard notifications. 

Please note this is a replacement for the old Slack integration which used incoming webhooks. Luckily, this is way easier to set up!

Step-by-step instructions

STEP 1: You click Add to Slack to enable the integration for this specific alert. If this is a brand new alert, you will not see the "Add to Slack" button until you click "Create & Subscribe." 

STEP 2: You are redirected to Slack to authorize the CrowdTangle app and to select the channel to post to. 

STEP 3: You are redirected back to Notifications and you can see Slack is enabled and connected to your #referral alerts Slack channel. 

STEP 4: Presto! Your referral alerts are appearing in your Slack channel!
