Slack Public Content Connector

Pull in channels, messages, and users from your Slack Workspace into Yext.

Slack is a messaging app for business that connects people to the information they need. By bringing people together to work as one unified team, Slack transforms the way organizations communicate. The Slack data connector allows you to sync data from Slack such as channels, messages, threads, and users to Yext on a daily basis. We also use webhooks to pull in real-time updates so any time there are messages, channels or users change, these same changes will occur in Yext. Now you can extend the reach of your Slack data even further to power Yext search experiences. In order to install this app, you will need a Slack account and a Yext account.

Install the connector to begin pulling in your Slack data into your Knowledge Graph! All you have to do is link your Slack account, choose which types of data you want to pull in:
Channels
Messages
Pinned Messages Only
Replies
Users

Then, you will be prompted to choose which channels to pull in messages from, if applicable.

Note:
*If you choose pinned messages as an option, ONLY pinned messages will be pulled into your Knowledge Graph.
*If you aren’t an admin on your Slack workspace, you may need to request approval. We recommend having a Slack admin install this connector.
*If you choose to pull in messages we will pull in the 10,000 most recent messages. If you also choose to pull in replies/threads, we will pull in the 50 most recent threads from each channel.
