Integrating Userback with Slack is like having a dedicated workspace for your customer feedback right within your usual team communication platform. You'll find it really practical, especially if you're already using Slack for team chats. You'll be able to assign it to the right team members, send it to other integrations, or even mark it as resolved. The good news is, that you don’t even have to be a registered Userback user to do all these things in Slack.

By bridging Userback and Slack, you're not just streamlining communication—you're creating an integrated hub for rapid problem-solving and decision-making. This guide walks you through each step to ensure a smooth integration process.

How to Connect Userback and Slack

Here's how to link a specific Userback project to a Slack channel.

  1. Navigate to Integrations in your Userback project settings.

  2. Locate 'Slack' and hit 'Connect' to authorize Userback to send notifications to Slack.

  3. After authorization, a setup window appears. Here, pick the Slack channel you want for feedback, decide the type of feedback you want to receive, and set up your notification preferences.

  4. Before finalizing, send a 'Test' feedback message to ensure it appears in the selected Slack channel.

That's it! Your Userback project is now connected to Slack.

Connecting to Private Slack Channels

For private Slack channels, an extra step is needed—inviting the Userback Bot.

  1. Locate 'Userback' in the Slack App section, then opt to 'Add this app to a channel.'

  2. Back in Userback, specify this private channel in your settings, and save the changes.

Awesome! You've successfully connected a Userback Project to a Private channel.
