Slack is a cloud-based team collaboration tool, enabling communities, groups, or teams to join through a specific URL or invitation sent by a team admin or owner. Channels can be created where team members can communicate without the use of email or group SMS (texting). They are open to everyone in the chat, provided they have first been invited to join.
These channels can also be configured to receive booking notifications from your Checkfront account. This means, when a booking is made in your Checkfront system, the allocated Slack channel will receive a notification, alerting you to the new reservation.
Creating a Channel in SlackBack to top
To the right of this is an icon, depicted by a plus sign in a circle. Click on this to create your new channel. The first piece of information you will need to provide is a name for the channel. This can be whatever you like, but it's best to keep it short, sweet and easily recognizable. The channel name begins with a hashtag, but this is automatically added for you.
If you wish to invite other team members to join the channel, search for them by name in the next field. This is optional and not required. You can also enter a purpose for the channel. This is just a description of what the channel will be used for. Again, this is optional. Finally, if you wish to keep the group private, click on the green switch at the top which is labeled Public. The switch will turn orange and say Private instead. When you are happy, click on the green Create Channel button at the bottom.
