User
Experience

  •  Target App's UI
  •  Point-to-Point

Send rich & timely notifications, invoke workflows at will using slash commands and message actions, build a useful conversational bot, and much more.

Slack’s “slash command” UI takes non-techies some time to learn, but once inculcated they love the speed and ease of use. The release of Actions allows users to take frequent actions (i.e. “Add this Task To Do list”) with a simple keystroke or pull-down menu choice, all w/o leaving Slack’s UI.

Users can also interact with message-based bots to seek information through queries.

Developer
Details

  •  Third Party
  •  Internal

Publishing Cost: Slack does not charge to publish your App in their Marketplace.

Code Hosting Cost: This integration’s code will run on an independent third-party server like AWS or Heroku.

  •  Challenging
  •  Easy

Because this Opportunity brings two SaaS apps together without an intermediating integration platform, the technical complexity is higher than many other Integration Opportunities.
