How Slack posts are published

Posts are shared to Slack as soon as they are published in EveryoneSocial. Content is posted near immediately if the content does not require approval. Content requiring approval is posted as soon as it's approved by an Admin or Group Moderator.

🔹Post approval must take place in the desktop app. 

Interacting with Slack posts

The post will display the option to Share or View the content, which redirects viewers to a Public Post Page to take further action.

Can I share a post to a private Slack channel?
Great question! This feature isn't available but is a potential possibility. If you feel this would be helpful, please submit Product Feedback telling us more about how you'd use this and we'd be happy to review your request.
Why can't I share a text post to Slack?
Great question! Slack uses an embed process, similar to how EveryoneSocial scrapes links. For a successful share to Slack, it needs something to use as the image, title, and description—and text posts don't supply that for the embed process. Please use a link, video, or image post to share content to Slack.
