PeopleGoal for Slack Installation Guide
You'll need to be an admin on your PeopleGoal account to install the app with four simple steps:
Make sure you are an administrator on both your Slack workspace and on PeopleGoal. Our Adding an admin user article will explain how to make a user a PeopleGoal administrator.
Log in to your PeopleGoal account and go to Configure > Account settings > Integration settings. Click Configure Slack integration.
Click Connect to Slack. Make sure you're logged into your Slack workspace. Then, under Actions, click Add to Slack and on the next screen, click Authorize. That's it - you're connected!
Go to your Slack workspace and head to Apps in the bottom left. Click the + icon and you'll see PeopleGoal listed under 'In your workspace'. Click View to add to your visible app list and you're ready to go.
The app works by simply typing in a text instruction - no slash commands or complex code needed. Our List of Slack commands article will show you all the actions you can complete using the PeopleGoal for Slack app.

Which notifications will I receive from PeopleGoal?
The PeopleGoal app will send you only relevant notifications that require your action. We'll never post these to any public channels or DM users on your behalf; notifications are sent only to you in the App messenger.
Will PeopleGoal notify my teammates of my actions?
We'll only notify your teammates if they have an action to complete. For example, if you request feedback from your colleague and they have the PeopleGoal for Slack app installed, they'll be notified in the App messenger that they've been asked to provide feedback for you. If they don't have PeopleGoal for Slack they will be notified as normal in PeopleGoal itself.
Does my PeopleGoal email address need to match my Slack email address?
Yes. Your email address is the unique identifier on PeopleGoal and you will need to use the same address for Slack to make sure your profile is properly linked.
