Slack connection

Learn how to connect to your Slack workspace.

To execute workflows with Slack actions and to initiate workflows starting with a Slack event, you need to connect your Slack workspace with Actioner.

When designing your own workflows, you can use your Slack connection for Slack actions and Slack triggers. To see your Slack connections, navigate to your workspace from left menu in Actioner and go to Slack connections page.


If you signed up to Actioner via Slack, your Actioner workspace is already connected to your Slack workspace.

Slack connection can be added by Actioner workspace admins.

If you do not see Slack connections page, contact with your workspace admin.

Step 5. You'll be getting a direct message from Actioner in Slack.


When multiple Actioner workspaces are connected to the same Slack workspace, you might be prompted to select your Actioner workspace after calling the 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 Actioner workspace before manually executing your workflows in Slack, select Always ask me option instead. After selecting your Actioner workspace, Actioner will list available workflows from the apps in that Actioner workspace.
