Integrating Highfive with Slack

 

This integration allows you to invite Slack channels, groups, and users to your Highfive call while a) in our app, or b) to drop an invite into a Slack channel without leaving Slack.

 

Your team's Highfive administrator should set up the integration from your team's domain dashboard (this only needs to be done once). If you're not an administrator, you can head straight here to set up Slack invites from a Highfive call.

 

 

In order to integrate Highfive with Slack so you can send and receive invites to calls using your favorite chat client, watch the quick video or follow the step-by-step instructions below:

 

 

 

  1. Head to your Domain Dashboard at [YourCompanyDomain].highfive.com/domain/dashboard/settings/integrations/list
  2. Select Integrations from the menu on the left, under Devices



  3. Click on the gear icon on the Slack row



  4. Select Expand in the Setup Instructions bubble



  5. Follow the list of instructions that appear
  6. Once you've entered the Webhook URL and have generated and pasted the Slash Command URL on Slacks page, hit the orange Save button


     
  7. Now that you have the integration setup, it's time to use it!
