What Notifications are Sent From the Direct Message Slack Integration?
There are two types of Notifications that are sent through the Slack Integration: instant Project Notifications and a Daily Digest.
Both Project Notifications and the Daily Digest will appear in Slack as direct messages from the Loopio App:
Tip: Project Notifications can be configured. See “Changing the Notifications Sent Through the Direct Message Slack Integration” below.
Which Project Notifications Are Sent Instantly?
In the Project Workspace, a direct message is instantaneously sent to Users, via the Loopio app in Slack, when:
- They are assigned a Project Entry
- A Team they belong to is assigned a Project Entry
- A Project Entry Review is ready to complete for the User
- A Project Entry Review is ready to complete for a Team they belong to
- They are @ mentioned in a comment
- A comment is left on an Entry they are assigned to
- A Project Entry they are assigned to is nudged
- A Project-wide nudge is initiated from the Project Dashboard
Note: You will not receive a Slack notification for any actions you have assigned to yourself.
What Is Included in the Slack Daily Digest?
A Daily Digest is sent out at approximately 9:00 AM local time (as set in each User’s Slack timezone). This includes a summary of Overdue Assignments, Assignments Due in 3 Days or Sooner, and All Other Assignments.
This summary includes:
- Project Entry assignments
- Project Entry Reviews that are ready to complete
- Library Reviews assigned to them
Assignments for Teams that have not been claimed, or have been claimed by a different User, are not shown in the Daily Digest.
