Compared to the Slack webhook integration (which enables you to display the Qarrot social feed in a dedicated Slack channel), the new beta Qarrot Slack app lets users send recognitions without leaving Slack, view the leaderboards, review campaign activity, and quickly access the reward catalog.

Install the Qarrot Slack app

Note: you must be a Super Admin in Qarrot, and an admin in your Slack workspace to set up this integration.

To set up the Qarrot Slack app follow these steps:

  1. Head to the Manage > Settings > Integrations page in your Super Admin account, and click 'Add to Slack'

give permission

2. If prompted, sign into your Slack account by entering your workspace's URL, your email address and password, then click 'Sign In'.

3. Next, Qarrot will request permission to access your Slack workplace, click 'Allow'

give permission

4. A pop-up will request to redirect you to your Slack workspace where Qarrot will be added as an app.

That's it! Qarrot is now successfully connected to your Slack workspace and available as an app. πŸŽ‰

The next step is to let your users know that they can also add the Qarrot app to their Slack workspace.

Inform users that the Qarrot app is available in Slack

Once the Super Admin has made the Qarrot app available in your company's Slack workspace, users can individually add it to their Slack account. To do so, simply click the '+ Add apps' button in your Slack workspace:

add qarrot slack app

Then, search Qarrot or select it among the apps available in your company workspace.

If prompted, sign into your Qarrot account. The email address entered into Slack needs to match the email address for users in Qarrot.

That's it! πŸŽ‰ Go back to your Slack workspace and head to the Qarrot app to see your account's information and make someone's day by sending your first recognition in Slack.
