Within Teamwork, you can enable the Slack integration to allow you and your users to interact with Teamwork notifications and create project items directly from your Slack account.

Note: This integration is available on the per-user Pro plan and above, as well as certain legacy plans.



The Slack integration is a personal integration each user can connect in their own profile settings once it has been enabled at site level by a site administrator.


Enabling Slack for your Teamwork site

To enable the integration, click your profile icon in the top right of your site and select Settings from the dropdown menu.

Once you click connect, you will need to enter your Slack workspace URL and corresponding login credentials.

To complete the setup, you will need to authorize the integration to connect to your Slack account as well as choose a channel that will receive notifications from Teamwork.

Note: Teamwork recommends connecting this integration to a private Slack channel.

Clicking the channel link will bring you directly to it in Slack.

The channel will receive Teamwork notifications for any items related to you - being assigned to a task, edits to a task you are following, users @mentioning you in comments/messages, etc. 

Note: In line with how Teamwork handles notifications, you will not receive notifications in Slack when you create project items.
