Why you should connect your Slack account to Briefmatic
Connecting your Slack profile to your Briefmatic account allows you to see, reply and resolve your saved items in slack from directly within Briefmatic or from within slack if you click on the option to “Go to Item” in the task detail view within Briefmatic.
How to connect your Slack profile to Briefmatic
To connect your Slack profile to your Briefmatic account follow these steps;
Go to the Connections tab, click on the “Connect” button on the Slack card and follow the prompts to authorise the connection. Briefmatic requires this approval to be able to scan slack to find your starred items and allow you to view and resolve these items from within Briefmatic.
Once the connection is enabled the syncing process will begin in the background and this may take a few minutes to complete depending on the number of starred messages you have.
