Slack is a business communications platform that enables you to stay connected with your team.

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

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

Click your profile avatar in the bottom left of your site and select My Apps from the pop-out menu.

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. Click Allow to proceed.

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

You will then be redirected to the Teamwork log in launchpad where you can enter your login credentials for the Teamwork account you want to connect to the Slack channel. If the email address is associated with multiple Teamwork sites, you will need to choose the relevant site.

Once you click Log in, you will also be asked to grant access permission to your site for the integration.

In Slack, you will see a note at the top of the channel mentioning the addition of the Teamwork app to the channel.

The selected channel will automatically receive Teamwork notifications for any items related to you. These include 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 are the person creating project items.
