Once the integration is configured it makes quickly accessing your existing Slack channel names simple. Create or update team contact information in OpsLevel with zero friction–and no risk of typos.
The Slack integration will also drive updated team membership through automated Slack reminders to end users who are not yet members of a team in OpsLevel. The notifications will prompt users to add themselves to the appropriate team. These are one-time notifications that get sent after a user logs in to OpsLevel for the first time.
