Setting up our Slack integration can help improve your Sunlight experience, by integrating your team's learning journey into their everyday routine. With just a few clicks, all your Sunlight notifications are ready and available on your company's Slack channel of your preference.
How to set this up
To set it up, all you have to do is open your company profile, go to the "Settings" tab, and then select "Integrations". You'll find here a couple of the apps we currently integrate with, Slack being one of them. To connect, simply click on the "Connect an account" button and follow the steps.
You will be taken to a screen where you will authorize the sync between Slack and Sunlight. Select the channel which you choose to connect with your main company and authorize the integration.
Once you are ready, click on "Install" and the integration will be ready :)
A few tips:
We recommend creating a Slack channel dedicated to learning, so that all the company's Sunlight-related activities can be in one place. This avoids extra noise in other channels which would only cause for Sunlight notifications to be ignored. All public notifications will be sent to this channel, while the private ones (regarding order approvals, etc.) will be sent through our bot directly to the users who need to be notified.
If you have teams, and each team have their own Slack channel, you could assign these as well. This way, you will have one main Slack channel, and the more specific ones for your separate teams.
You can have each of your team connected to a separate channel if you would like, and you can also create them as you set the channels up with the team.
Finally, you can select to automatically add new Sunlight members to their respective Slack channels. This will save you having to add them individually to each Slack channel they would need to belong to.
Why do this?
Our Slack integration is a great way to blend everything that is happening on Sunlight with your day to day work. It helps to keep everyone up to date with what is going on in your Sunlight group, ultimately supporting you to cultivate the amazing learning culture that we want to help create.
