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 notify the Slack channel of your choice. The Slack – Request Queue integration is a quick and simple process. If you are having trouble completing the Slack integration please contact support.
