Greetly integrates with corporate instant messaging platforms, like Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Google Hangouts Chat. 

1. Any channel ID

Open the slack webpage (http://[yourteam] and then simply open the channel. The channel ID is displayed in the browser URL.

2. Any user ID

To find a user ID you need to open your browser dev-tools console and inspect the user-link in the sidebar. The user ID can be found in the HTML attribute "data-member-id".


In Slack: (1) Click on the users name and choose (2) "Show Profile". Then open the "..." menu and you see the option (3) "Copy Member-ID ..." - to get your own user ID via the UI, you have to click the Team-Logo in top-left corner and then choose "Profile & Account". 

3. Team ID

Simply open the dev-tools of your browser, switch to the "Console" tab and enter the text boot_data.team_id into the console. This will display your team ID.
