In order to install the Slack integration, you'll need to have created a workspace in Volley.

Our Slack integration is in beta and changing rapidly.  If you notice any issues or have feedback, tell Hello Volley or email us at support@volleyapp.com.

 

How to Install

Note: In order to install/uninstall apps in Slack, you must have the appropriate permissions within your Slack workspace to be able to do so. 

 

1. In Volley desktop app or web (not available on mobile), navigate to the Workspace you want to integrate with Slack and select the Workspace Settings by clicking on the gear icon.

 

2. Click "Slack" under the Integrations section

 

3. Click "Add to Slack"

4. A Slack approval page will then open in your browser (note: you will need to be logged into your Slack account in your browser).  Click the green “Allow” button

5. Success!  You should see a message like this with instructions on how to link channels and conversations.  

Go back to Volley and follow the steps below.

 

Linking Volley to Slack channels and DMs.

Due to Slack's functionality, there is a slightly different process for linking Volley to Slack channels than there is for linking to DMs.

To link Volley to a Slack channel (DMs in next section):

 

1. Navigate to the Volley channel or conversation that you want to connect to Slack and click on Channel/Conversation details.

 

2. Scroll to the bottom of the Details screen and click on "Connect to Slack"

3. Copy the @Volley string to your clipboard.

4. Paste the @Volley string in any Slack channel (public or private).

5. If the Volley bot is not already in the channel, you'll need to confirm by clicking "Invite Them."

Success!  You'll see a confirmation and an automated volley sent by the Volley bot to confirm that the link was made.

To link Volley to a Slack Direct Message

 

Important: To link Volley to a Slack DM, the Volley bot must be invited to that DM.  Because of Slack's functionality, you'll need to create a new DM with the people you want and invite the Volley bot to it.  Note: This will create a new DM and won't include the history of the existing DM.

1. In Slack, create a new DM by clicking the [+] next to Direct Messages.

2. Add the people you want in the DM as well as the Volley bot.

3. Back in Volley, navigate to the channel or conversation that you want to connect to the new DM and click on Channel/Conversation details.

 

4. Scroll to the bottom of the Details screen and click on "Connect to Slack"

5. Copy the @Volley string to your clipboard.

6. Paste the @Volley string in the new DM you just created (that includes the Volley bot).

Success!  You'll see a confirmation and an automated volley sent by the Volley bot to confirm that the link was made.

 

What will my volleys look like in Slack?

When someone sends a volley in a channel that is linked to a Slack channel, this is how the following volleys will appear:

Video volley

Text volley

Screen recording volley


Voice volley

Disconnecting a channel from Volley

1. Within Volley, navigate to the Channel or Conversation you want to disconnect and click Details.

2. Scroll to the bottom, and click the (-) minus next to the Slack icon.

2. Click "Remove"

 

Uninstalling Volley from your Slack workflow

Note: The process to uninstall Volley from Slack is done completely in Slack, not in Volley. 

1. On Slack's website, navigate to the app management page https://app.slack.com/apps-manage/

 

2. Click on “Volley” and navigate to the "Configuration" tab.  

3. Click "Remove App", then click it again in the new prompt on your screen
