Running actions in Slack

Do all the work in a consistent and unified form without leaving Slack!

Approve requests, add tasks, create collaboration channels, or get your customer list in Slack. Share insightful action outputs with your colleagues in your preferred Slack channel.

Actioner helps streamlining your work by bringing actions from disparate apps into one place. Reduce the time of switching back and forth between your apps or looking for your tool’s bot to run a simple job. You can quickly run any action in Slack through Actioner’s Slack app.

  • Running an action through Actioner shortcut

    In Slack, type /actioner and then find the action you want to run - either by typing its name or selecting it from dropdown. Continue with entering parameters to your action.

  • Running an action through an action button

    Actioner sends Slack notifications through apps. Slack notifications contain action blocks that you can interact with. By clicking an action button on a Slack notification sent by Actioner, you can run an action by entering its parameters.
