At this point, nearly all organizations use some form of collaboration tool to conduct business. With the ability to push Alerts via a direct Slack integration, your organization will receive your alerts in the most modern and convenient way.

This article will cover:

Slack Integration Overview

Enabling this integration right from the platform allows you and your team to begin receiving automated, AI-powered alerts sent directly to Slack.

Slack’s collaborative nature allows your teams to act quickly on market movements, alert relevant internal departments in a timely manner, and make better-informed decisions powered by rich insights.

Setting Up Your Slack Integration

It is recommended that you connect your organization’s Slack to Meltwater in one of two places, the Third-Party Integrations Section or the Alerts Tab. This action will only need to be performed once by one team member. After a connection is made on an account it will be connected for everyone.

Note: We recommend creating a dedicated public Slack channel with an obvious name like ‘Meltwater Alerts,’ and make sure all users on the account are in that public Slack channel that is connected to Meltwater.
