Integration for Slack

The Slack integration pushes information from Pointagram into Slack. Pointagram will post messages to one Slack channel that you choose when authorizing Pointagram in Slack.

Pointagram pushes the following information:

  • Information on ongoing competitions according to your schedule.
  • Competition End.
  • Badge award.
  • Points scored.

Set up

Go to integrations and find the Slack integration. Click on the plus symbol and the choose Authenticate. You will be redirected to Slack where you must approve Pointagram to post messages in one of your channels.

Once Pointagram is authorized you will be redirected back to Pointagram and you will get the option to approve default set up. We recommend that you do so (you may customize it later).

If you’re happy with the default set up, you are done. If not, read below how to customize…


Outgoing events

Slack integration has two outgoing events that post data to your selected Slack channel. One periodic update and one event driven update.

Competition Periodic Update

You can enable or disabled this event.

Add timestamps, one or more, to get daily updates posted for ongoing competitions.

News feed added

You can enable or disabled this event.

You can also select which events you want to be posted. The following events supported:

  • Score series. Will post data in the same way as in the Pointagram newsfeed when somebody scores. That means that newsfeed thresholds are valid here as well.
  • Competition end. Posts results of a competition when a competition ends.
  • Badge award. Posts message when a player receives a badge.

In addition you can set a filter that excludes messages for certain score series.
