Adding Swarmia to a private Slack channel

Get updates from Swarmia bot for Slack in your team's workspace

Swarmia team notifications is a great way to stay up to date with all that needs your team's attention on a day to day basis.

You can get updates in both public and private Slack channels. If your team has a public channel, you should be able to choose it in Swarmia notification settings.

If you're using a private channel instead, follow the instructions below.

Step 1

We recommend that you start with reconnecting the Swarmia bot for Slack to your Slack workspace. This ensures we have all the permissions necessary to fetch the private channels from your Slack instance.

Step 2

Enable personal notifications. This prepares the necessary authorizations we need to list your private channels. You can uncheck all the boxes if you're not interested in receiving personal notifications.

Step 3

Invite the Swarmia app to your channel. This can be done either with a direct text command, or by going through the Slack UI to add the app to the channel.

Option 1: Slack user interface

For the UI approach, find the option to Add apps to this channel by entering the following on your private channel.



Next, find the Swarmia app and Add it to your channel.


Option 2: via text command

For the text version, enter the following command in your Slack channel:

/invite @swarmia

Step 4

Refresh team notifications page. You should be able to see your channel in the list now.
