How do I enable Litmus notifications in Slack?

Overview

The Litmus + Slack integration allows Litmus teams to receive notifications about certain Litmus activities directly in Slack. These notifications can be configured to appear in specific Slack channels and/or delivered to individual team members as direct messages via the Litmus Slack App.

To begin receiving Litmus notifications via Slack, users will need to ensure the Litmus app has first been approved by their workspace and then log into Litmus to add the Litmus app to Slack. Full details on how do do this are listed in this article.

Allowing Litmus users to access the Litmus+Slack notifications app

Depending on the permissions of your Slack Workspace, you may require an owner/admin to approve the Litmus App for use with your workspace. To do this:

As a Slack Workspace owner/admin:

As a Litmus user send a request to your Slack workspace Admin to request approval by:

  • Visiting the Litmus Slack App Directory listing and click the “ Request to Install” button located under the Litmus logo at the top-left of the screen. This will notify the owner(s) of your Slack workspace you would like to use the app

Once the Litmus app has been approved for your Slack Workspace, Litmus users can log into Litmus, add the app and configure the notifications they would like to receive.

Notification types

There are two distinct types of Slack notifications available:

  • Channel Notifications - Improve team collaboration and communication around campaign progress with automatic Litmus notifications posted to the Slack channel you select.
  • Direct Notifications - Keep informed of all activity that occurs on any campaign you own, as well as when other team members @mention you on projects, with an automatic direct message notification to you in Slack.

Channel Notifications

  • Channel notifications are only configurable by Litmus Account Holders and Admins
  • They are configured at an account/subaccount level to allow key notifications to be sent to a Slack channel, reaching all channel subscribers
  • Multiple channels can be configured to receive different notification types

Channel notifications that can be delivered are:

  • The creation of a new Proof document (feature only available on Enterprise plans)
  • The creation of a new Checklist
  • The progress of a Checklist
  • The completion of a Checklist

Direct (personal) Notifications

      • Available for Litmus Full and Admin users, as well as the Account Holder
      • When enabled, the user will be able to configure which notifications they wish to receive from the following:
        • Actions taken by other Litmus users on Proof they create (comments, responses, resolutions, completing checklist tasks, etc.)
        • Actions taken by other Litmus team members on Checklists they create (checklist steps are approved/unapproved, a new version is uploaded, etc.)
        • When another Litmus user @mentions the user in a comment or response
      • Direct notifications are automatically enabled for all accounts/subaccounts the user is a member of and allows the user to manage notifications for each account individually
