Integrating Bonusly with Slack allows users to give bonuses directly from Slack, and enables announcements of bonuses, birthdays, anniversaries, and donations in the Slack feed! It only take a few minutes, and then your team will be set to interact with Bonusly from the comfort of their daily workflow.ย 

This article will cover how to integrate with Slack, and how to add/remove the channels Bonusly announces in.

Important notes before you get started:

  1. The person who installs the integration must be an admin in Bonusly and Slack to connect successfully.

  2. All users must have the exact same email in Bonusly and Slack to sync successfully between the two tools.

  3. The integration can only work within one workspace. The connected channel(s) must be in that workspace.

Integrating with Slack

First, head over to the Integration page and select the Slack integration:

Then, click the 'Add to Slack' button:

Next, enter your team's Slack domain:

Click the 'Continue' button:

If prompted, sign into your Slack account by entering your email address and password, then click 'Sign In':

Pro tip: In order for the app to work correctly, the email address entered into Slack needs to match the email address for users in Bonusly.

Select the channel that you would like notifications to post to.ย 

Here, I've selected our #recognition channel. Then, click the green 'Authorize' button.

That's it! Your integration is all set! ๐ŸŽ‰ย

Adding a Slack channel:

Bonusly will post in Slack rooms based on the users in that room, so it can be team or department specific. To add a Slack channel, head to your Slack integration page and select the "Add New Channel" button:ย 

Choose the new channel you would like to give Bonusly access to, and then select the green "Authorize" button:

A green notification will then let you know if the new channel has been added successfully:ย 

Removing a Slack channel:ย 

To remove Bonusly from a Slack channel, go to the Slack integration page and select the red "Remove" button. In this example, Bonusly is being removed from the #general channel.

A pop-up will confirm that this is the channel you want to remove:ย 

All done! The channel is now removed, and Bonusly will not post or announce anymore. ๐Ÿ‘ย 


Hang on a second... my 'Authorize' button never turned green. Now what do I do?ย 

If your 'Authorize' button remains grey, this could mean that you don't have permission through Slack to add integrations. Check with your company's Slack administrator to ensure that you have the appropriate permissions.

I'm definitely have permission to add integrations on Slack, but the button is still grey.ย 

Try exiting the integration page and then retrying the installation. Make sure that the entire page loads before entering any information or selecting the channel.
