Greetly + Slack Integration = Smart Office Reception 

Greetly's Slack integration allows members of your organization to receive digital visitor registration notifications instantly as direct messages within Slack.

*Please note that you'll need to be the Slack administrator in order to activate it through Greetly. Your Global admin email address used for Greetly must also match in order for the system to validate.

Setup the Integration

Setting up the Slack integration into Greetly's visitor management system is easy. Just follow these quick steps:

  1. Sign into your Greetly web-based admin (or sign up for a free trial account). 
  2. Go to Check-In Options > Location. You will land in the sub-section "Notification Preferences".
  3. Under Notification Preferences, click #Add to Slack and follow the prompts to install the Greetly Slack app to your team.
  4. Go to Profile Settings to add your Slack username (eg. @johnsmith) and make sure that Slack is set to active in your personal Notifications section. NOTE: Greetly's integration does not currently support display names, so stick to those lowercase usernames until further notice.
  5. Start getting Greetly notifications on Slack! 

Happy #GreetSlacking.
