Info

When multiple Actioner workspaces are connected to the same Slack workspace, you might be prompted to select your Actioner workspace after calling /actioner shortcut in Slack.

If you want to skip selecting a workspace, go to Actioner app's Home tab in Slack and click Set default workspace on Settings section.

When a default workspace is set, only workflows from your default workspace will be available to be run in Slack.

If you prefer to be prompted to choose your Actioner workspace before manually executing your workflows in Slack, select Always ask me option instead.

Running a workflow through a button in a notification

Actioner sends notifications to your Slack channels and sends notifications as direct messages. Slack notifications contain buttons that allow you to take decisive actions. By clicking a button on a Slack notification sent by Actioner, you can trigger a workflow manually right in Slack. If your workflow takes inputs, your workflow will open up in a form view. You can enter your values and submit the form to initiate your workflow.
