Installing the Slack Integration

  • Go to Settings > Integrations

  • Click “Add to Slack”

  • If you are an administrator on your Slack account, a pop will appear that says “Eden is requesting permission to access the [your company name] Slack workspace.”

    • If you are not an administrator, a notification will be sent to your team’s Slack administrator for approval before you can continue. Have your organization’s Slack administrator click “Allow”

  • A notification will appear in green at the top of your screen that says, “Linked Eden with Slack team!”

  • All Slack users will automatically have access to the Eden Slack app once you've completed the integration. To add Eden to your Apps, open Slack and scroll to the Apps section. Click on the plus sign and search for Eden Workplace.

Slack Commands and Notifications

Eden supports both commands in the Eden app in addition to setting up channel notifications. The following are commands you can send directly to the Eden App. You do not need to precede the command with /eden when sending directly to the Eden App. If you are submitting a request in a channel other than the Eden App, you must procede the command with /eden (i.e., /eden invite)
