Activity feeds in Slack display new Cards and Boards added to Guru in a channel of your choosing. Keeping track of new content in Slack encourages adoption, as it reassures your team that Guru is a resource that's constantly evolving to meet their needs.
To set up and manage activity feeds in Slack:
1. While in Slack, navigate to the Home tab in your @guru App.
2. Within the third section titled "Activity Feeds," you can create, manage, and delete Activity feeds.
Only Admins will see the Your Activity Feeds dropdown menu.
To create an activity feed Click the Create New button, then go through the flow of selecting which channel the feed will be displayed in, as well as choosing whether it is a Board or Collection feed.
To manage an activity feed Click the Edit button to the right of the feed that needs to be adjusted. Within the Edit Activity Feed menu, you can update the channel in which the feed lives and change whether the new content from a Board or Collection is being displayed.
To delete an activity feed Click the Edit button to the right of the feed you would like to delete. Scroll to the bottom of the Edit Activity Feed menu and click Delete Activity Feed.
Non-admins can only delete activity feeds that they have created, while Admins can delete any activity feed.
You can set up an activity feed for multiple Collections going to the same Slack channel.
Unfortunately, Guru activity feeds do not work for Synced Collections.
🔎 Creating activity feeds in Private Channels
You can create Activity Feeds for both public and private Slack channels. For private channels, you'll first need to invite the Guru app from the Details > Add App menu of that thread.
You may also notice that when creating a feed in a private channel, the channel title will not appear in the list results and be linked in blue after creating it like a public channel would. This is intended behavior in Slack but the activity feed will still be created when you type in the name of the private channel.
