Updated 3 weeks ago by Mary Kulikova

Track app activities using Slack. We support:

  • Google Play,
  • Microsoft Store,
  • Amazon Appstore,
  • Mac App Store.

How to set up

1. Click “Integrations” on the left menu and choose Slack;

2. Choose what types of notifications you want to get:

  • New & updated reviews;
  • Ranks history;
  • Featured breakdown;
  • Search Ads;
  • App updates;
  • App featuring;
  • New Apps by Publisher;
  • New Apps by Keywords;
  • Smart Alerts (machine learning algorithms will check users mood and notify you if something happened).
If you want to receive several alerts, add them separately.

3. Click “Add to Slack” to start receiving any of the notifications from the previous step.

  • You will be redirected to the Slack page, where you need to type your Slack workplace.
  • Type the workplace’s name and click “Continue”.
  • Enter your email and password from the workplace and click “Sign in”.

4. Choose Slack channel where you will get THIS type of notifications:

  • Click the drop-down menu “Select channel”.
  • Here you can choose any existing channel or create a new one specifically for alerts and notifications.
  • Click “Authorize”.
  • Your Slack notification is on.

Now you will see all Slack integrations (marked with a green tick):

You can create as many Slack channels, as you need. You may have several channels for different alerts and teams: product owner will get app updates, and customer support team — new reviews.

Troubleshooting

1. You can get the same notifications twice. It may happen if you have added the same notification type two or more times. Delete unnecessary integrations:

2. You receive daily sales report only the next day. Sometimes it takes more time from Google to collect this data. That’s why it may be delay with delivering sales report the same day.
