Integrating Slack into the Work Request Queue

Slack is a messaging app for teams who want to communicate and share files online. Intervals has integrated its Request Queue with Slack. When a new request is created in your request queue, Intervals will send a message to the Slack channel you selected to be notified. The Slack – Request Queue integration is a quick and simple process. If you are having trouble completing the Slack integration please contact support.

What triggers a Slack notification?

Notifications are sent when anyone creates a request from the Submit a request button located on Tasks > Request Queue:

Submit a request
Once you save your request, like below, the slack notification will be sent:
Add request queue item

Notifications are also triggered when someone emails your Hopper or POP/IMAP email address. To retrieve your personalized Hopper email address, navigate to Tasks > Request queue and click on the Email link:

Request queue email

Note: Requests created by the Intervals API will not send a Slack notification.
