Change the Channel and Filters for Slack Notifications

You can change the settings in Paligo so that it:

  • Sends activity feed notifications to a different channel

  • Sends activity feed notifications for different users or events

To make these changes:

  1. Make sure the prerequisites are in place.

  2. Select your profile in the upper right corner to display a menu, and then select Settings. Then select the Integrations tab, find the Slack settings and select Change.

    The Slack integration box on the Paligo integrations page. It has a single button labelled Change.
  3. In the Channel name field, change the name of the channel.

  4. Use the Filters to choose which activity feed notifications Paligo will send. There are two settings - one for choosing the users you are interested in, and one for choosing the types of events. Check the boxes for the users and events that you want to get notifications for in Slack.

    Paligo's Slack integration settings. A callout arrow points to the two combo boxes that you can use to filter the notifications. The left one is for filtering the notifications by user. The right one is for filtering notifications by event. The event options are shown and each option has a checkbox. Paligo will send a notification for those users or events that are checked.

    If you do not want to receive Slack notifications about particular users or events, clear their checkboxes.

  5. Select Save.

  6. In Paligo, do something that will cause an activity feed notification. For example, create a new publication or rename a topic. Then, in Slack, look at the channel that you have set up to receive the Paligo notifications. You should see the notification message appears (there can be a delay, depending on server connections etc., but the notification usually arrives almost instantly).

    Note

    If the notification does not arrive, make sure that:

    • You have entered the channel name correctly

    • The filters actually allow that notification to be sent to Slack

    • You performed an action that will get logged in the activity feed in Paligo.
