Central Slack Integration 01

We know that technical communicators are keen on collaboration. That’s why we’re excited to announce the new release to MadCap Central – integration with Slack!

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Slack, it’s a popular communication tool where you can message other users, create channels, and improve productivity on projects, teams, and more. We’ve seen it expand in the technical communication community (such as the Write the Docs Slack group), and even within our own company!

If you have a Slack account, you can integrate it with Central’s notification system. By doing this, all types of activity alerts (e.g., builds completed, tasks edited or moved, projects deleted) can be fed directly to your Slack channels, making it easier for you to remain when certain events take place in Central.

When you’re finished setting it up, you’ll then start receiving Central-related notifications in Slack! Here’s an example of how it’ll look:

The following are just a few of the notifications you can receive on your Slack channels:

  • Users: Receive a notification if you have been added to or removed from a project
  • Builds: Receive a notification if a target from a project is generated (manual, scheduled start, or rebuild)
  • Teams: Receive a notification if a team is added to a project or removed from one
  • Tasks: Receive a notification if comments or files are added to a task
  • Projects: Receive a notification if a project’s status (i.e., Activated, Locked, Archived) is changed
