I’m Jenn from the Confluence Cloud Product Marketing team. Jumping between platforms and apps can feel like a game of mental ping pong. Employees toggle between an average of 10 workplace efficiency apps during the workday, which ultimately leads to losing 32 days a year. Your attention is needed in a million different places, and sometimes it probably feels like you switch tabs more than you actually work.
Toggle less and accomplish more with the Confluence Cloud app for Slack. It has all the tools you need to stay in-the-know about what’s happening with your work in Confluence without ever clicking away from Slack. Standard and Premium customers can be even more agile with a special offer of 50% off of a paid Slack plan for one year. Work together with your team in the tools they prefer.
Just the tip of the iceberg
By pasting a link to a Confluence page, comment, or blog in Slack, a link preview will automatically be generated in your channel. You’ll get full context about content so you can discuss with your team without slowing down your workflow and having to take a left turn back to Confluence.
If you and your team decide to dive back into a Confluence page, it’s one click to bridge the gap. Link previews are also helpful when it comes to searching in Slack. Need to find that link to the page that was shared with you last week but you can’t remember past Monday? Just search for the author by typing /confluence search <name> in your Slack message bar.
A task in motion stays in motion
Who among us has not made the fatal mistake of thinking, “I’ll come back to that later”?
With this integration, you can interact with your work in Confluence and respond through Slack, which saves you the time it takes to scroll and address your team’s feedback. Reply to comments when you see them with easy access in Slack.
If you need to put a pin in a discussion, add it to your saved for later list in Confluence using the ⭐reaction on any Slack notification or link preview (see the screenshot below for an illustration).
All the notifications you need, and none of the ones you don’t
As nice as it is to be in the know, you don’t need an alert because your coworker changed a comma to a period. With the Slack app settings, you can specify which notifications are most important and which can wait.
Through either Confluence or Slack, you can customize which pages and spaces you want to track. This power extends to child pages when they’re created, edited, or commented on.
Once the Confluence Cloud app for Slack is installed, it's automatically enabled across your Confluence Cloud site, so you’re only a few simple steps away from better productivity.
To connect a Confluence page to your Slack channel:
Open the Confluence page you want to receive notifications for
Click on the “…” in the top right-hand corner
Select Slack Notifications
Select Add Subscription
You can also subscribe to an entire space by navigating to Space Settings > Integrations > Slack Notifications > Add Subscription. If your team decides down the road it doesn’t want the integration, it can be disabled by your Confluence Cloud admin.
But wait! There’s more!
Confluence and Slack aren’t the only products that can team up. By combining the strengths of Slack and Atlassian, you can stay agile, break down silos, and build better products faster right from where you talk all day with your teammates.
