How to Beta-Test Our Slack Notification Feature


Always wanted to be notified about your widgets?
We created a new (beta) feature to test out: Widget Notifications.
To keep you focused on the most important data, turn it on to receive updates in Slack: daily or weekly.

Step 1: Integrate with Slack
First, you have to integrate your Slack account with Datadeck.
Click on the Slack logo (#) to do so.

Step 2: Turn on Beta mode
First, you need to turn on Beta test mode for your space.
Beware that you need to be a space owner or admin to do this.

Step 3: Click on Notification (Beta)

Step 4: Name your widget
Give your widget a title to follow up on your most important data.


Step 5: Double check the dashboard and widget
If you would like, you can receive today’s widget by clicking on “Send a test”


Step 6: Select your channel, frequency and save
Scroll down and select Slack. Select your Slack workspace and the channel you would like to receive the notification in.
Next, select the frequency you would like to receive the notification and time.


Now, all you have to do is sit back and look forward to your first notification in Slack.
Let us know what you think of our new feature, by leaving a comment.

Do you have some other useful channels to connect to? Don’t hold back, let us know!
