When you integrate with Slack, Dead Man's Snitch alerts will post notifications to your Slack channel. In addition, you'll be able to use
/dms slash commands to check up on your snitches.
Integrating with Slack is easy and should take less than a minute.
In the Integrations tab, click “ADD” next to Slack.
You'll be taken to Slack.com where you'll choose which team account you want to give Dead Man's Snitch access to.
Next, choose the channel you want Dead Man's Snitch to post to and click "Authorize".
That's it! Dead Man's Snitch is now integrated with Slack and notifications will post to your Slack channels.
You can add Slack by going to your your account settings.
Slash commands can be used to check up on your snitches. Just type
/dms followed by a command for snitch information to be delivered right to your slack channel.
You may need to configure your existing Slack integration to allow slash commands. When you visit your your account settings, your existing integrations will have an option to upgrade to use slash commands if this needs to be done. If you don't see the link, you're all set! Updating is as simple as clicking on the upgrade link, and repeating the same steps you took when you added your integration.
Here are all the commands you can use with your Dead Man's Snitch Slack integration. If you ever need a quick reminder,
