Make sure everyone sees your latest Slack messages by putting them on a big screen.
Please note, if you're using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative Slack app guide here.
The ScreenCloud Slack app helps everyone stay up to date with the latest Slack messages by sharing them on your digital screens. This ensures that nobody misses a message and can view all of the most important conversations without having to be glued to their personal devices.
(Slack is one of our most used tools in the ScreenCloud office and we love having it up on the screen!)
With the ScreenCloud Slack app you can:
Here’s how it works:
1.2. Search for slack to find the Slack app. Select the app and click Install App to add a new instance.
You'll need to select Login to connect your Slack account. A window will open asking you to add your Slack workspace to ScreenCloud. Enter your workspace URL and log into Slack. Once you’ve signed in, you’ll need to authorize ScreenCloud and select which rooms or Slack channels you wish to give ScreenCloud permission to share. A green checkmark will appear in the login button once you've logged in successfully.
3.1. Edit the Instance Name section to give your new Slack instance a name, for example, Random Room. This will make it easy to differentiate from other Slack instances you decide to add in the future.
3.2. You can modify your settings panel to decide how your Slack content is displayed on a screen.
Once you’ve chosen all of your Slack app settings, select Preview to see what your Slack messages will look like on a screen. If you’re happy with what you see, hit Save.
Here’s a tutorial to help you add your newly created Slack instance to a Channel. You can choose how long to show your Slack display for by changing the time in the duration column (currently set as 1:00 for one minute).
The ScreenCloud Slack app can be custom branded. You can create and customize your theme in your Account Settings.
Once created, themes can be added at a Channel-level in order to custom brand apps like Slack. Find out more on how to create custom themes with ScreenCloud here.
Can I add more than one Slack room to my display?
Yes, you can add as many different Slack app instances as you like. Simply go through the process each time and choose the specific room you wish to show.
How often will the Slack app update?
Slack app updates in real time, so your latest messages will appear on a screen within a few seconds of them being sent.
