That's it! 🎉 Any new public activity on the Qarrot social feed will get posted to the selected Slack channel.

The Qarrot webhook connection in Slack only allows the social feed in Qarrot to be visible in Slack but users cannot send recognitions or perform any other actions from Slack, they must log into their Qarrot account to interact with the app.

To add the Qarrot Slack app to your workspace so that users can send recognitions without leaving Slack, check out this article:
