Connecting your Slack Workspace to Tettra
To take advantage of our advanced integration features with Slack like automatic user management and the
/tettra slash command, connect your Tettra account with your team's Slack Workspace.
You can set up or view your Slack Workspace connection under the
Team Settings > Team Integrations page:
Your workspace will automatically be connected if you signed up with Slack:
If you created your Tettra account with your email or Gooogle account, you'll have the option to connect Slack during onboarding or can set it up later from the Slack integration page by clicking the
Connect to Slack button.
Note that you can only connect your Slack workspace to one Tettra account at a time.
Slack Log in and Authentication
Managing accounts when employees join and leave your company can be a real hassle. We make it easy by hooking right into Slack’s account system.
Once you've connected the integration, anyone you add to your Slack workspace will be able to log in and create a profile in your account without an invite.
If you're on our Scaling plan and prefer to disable this feature, we've also got you covered. Visit the Admin settings in your Team Settings and disallow the Slack log-in option:
Please note that deactivating a user in Slack will not deactivate the user in Tettra.
Keep in mind that Tettra will only work with full Slack members. Guests can be invited via their email address.
Channel notifications work for all teams, even if you haven't connected a Slack workspace.
To keep your team better engaged with your wiki content, you can set up Slack notifications. Right now, we send notifications for:
- New categorized pages
- Updated categorized pages
- A new comment is created on a categorized page
- New suggestions
We also try to @mention the people who a page or request has been assigned to. Here's an example of a suggestion notification:
Slash Commands are special text based commands you can use in Slack. Tettra’s slash command lets you search for Tettra pages in any slack channel or direct message. It also lets you create pages and suggestions directly from Slack.
To search for a page, type ‘/tettra find’ followed by a search term then hit enter to see the results. If you'd like to share a page with the channel, click 'Share with channel'.
If you'd like to create a suggestion from Slack, type '/tettra suggest [title]'. You can also assign a suggestion to a teammate by including an @ mention like this:
/tettra suggest @[slack username] [title]
You can use Slack actions to create a suggestion from an existing Slack post. Just click 'More actions' to the right of the post, select 'Create a suggestion', and fill out your suggestion details. Once you've done this, the suggestion will automatically be added to your Tettra account.
Connecting Slack also adds Tettra's Slackbot to your workspace.
