How do I enable Fond’s Slackbot integration?
Fond’s Slack integration makes it easy to recognize colleagues right from your favorite communication platform.
To install Fond’s Slack integration, first log into your Fond account and scroll to the bottom of the home page. Click on Add to Slack in the bottom right.
You will then be redirected to another page. Click the Add to Slack button.
If you are not signed in, you will be prompted to sign in using your workspace’s Slack URL.
You will then see this form:
You can now select which Slack channel you would like the Fond app to join using the dropdown menu. When the Fond app joins a channel, it will look out for trigger words (like “Happy Birthday” or “Congratulations”) and respond by helping those users give recognition.
You can add or remove the Fond app from channels anytime.
Once you have selected the appropriate channel, click Allow. You will then be redirected back to Fond and see a success banner.
You have now successfully enabled Fond Rewards for Slack. If you log into your Slack account, you will see a new #recognition channel on the lefthand side that you have been automatically added to.
You can add members of your team to the channel as you normally would in Slack: by @mentioning their name in the channel. Or, individuals can join the channel on their own by clicking on Channels, searching for ‘recognition’, and adding themselves to it.
