How to set up a Slack integration
If you're part of a team or supervising it, it can be tricky to keep track of the chart creations of your team members. That's why we offer a Slack integration for all our users, including users on a free plan.
A Slack integration will notify you in a Slack channel of your choice whenever a chart created by your team is published or republished:
To set up a Slack integration, go to your account settings in Datawrapper and select your team. This will bring you to your team settings. Now click on Integrations, then click on Enable Slack integration:
You will be prompted to add a Webhook URL. You can learn how to get one in this Slack How-To, or you follow this guide. It's a process that involves quite some steps, but it's simple and you won't need to code.
To create the app, go to api.slack.com/apps/new and click on Create an App:
And that's it! Go to your Slack channel and you'll find that you "added an integration to this channel". Try to publish or re-publish a chart, map or table and you'll get a notification from the Slack app you set up. The link leads you directly to a chart preview.
Congrats on your first Slack app and Webhook URL you created! If you have any remaining questions, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
