We're all busy and we need simple yet effective ways to stay aligned. Open communication is essential and lucky for us, Slack is a great communication tool that can integrate with Perdoo.
Reduce meetings and misalignment by simply pushing all new updates, comments, and OKRs, as well as Check-ins (Reflections) made in Perdoo to your team's public or private channel.
If you see a change that needs further clarification, you can simply use Slack's replies to get more information or start a discussion without having to go into the ritual of setting up a meeting.
It's also really useful for staying on top of dependencies with other teams and congratulating a job well done.
In this article:
* NOTE: The Slack integration must first be enabled for your Company. Ask your Ambassador or a (Super)admin to do this in Configure > Integrations, if they haven't already.
Enable Slack updates
Go to your Group page
Click on the pencil icon
Select your Slack channel
* NOTE: Each Group can only connect to one Slack channel.
Configure Slack notifications
At the company level, choose which kinds of updates you want pushed to Slack using the toggles in Configure:
Set up Reflections
Send your team's Reflections to your team's Slack channel (make sure Admins+ set it up by using the pencil icon beside the Group's page title, see GIF above).
Sharing your Reflections to a Slack channel of your choice acts as a standup. You and your team can benefit greatly from knowing what everyone else is working on:
Check-in reminders don't appear on Slack channels, they'll appear in the Perdoo app in Slack.
If you don't see them, check whether the Perdoo app has been added on Slack and click there to check whether the reminders appear.
* NOTE: If Reflections are enabled, all users will receive a Check-in reminder — even if they don't lead any goals.
Send weekly reports
Toggle Send weekly reports in Configure > Integrations > Slack to keep your team updated by sending weekly progress reports to the Slack channel of your choice.
