Connecting Lessonly to a Slack account allows assignment notifications to be sent directly to users in Slack.

How to Install the Integration

Step One: Ensure that you're logged into Slack, then navigate to the Slack App Directory. Search for "Lessonly" and select it from the search results.

On the Lessonly app page, select "Add to Slack."

Step Two: After selecting "Add to Slack" a setup module will appear. Select the "Connect" button as pictured below.

Note: Once connected, subsequent users will see "Open in Slack" rather than "Connect."

Step Three: Once connected, the user will be prompted to log in to their Lessonly account. If the user is already logged in this step will be skipped.

Step Four: Allow Lessonly permission to access the Slack workspace.

The user will then receive this welcome message in Slack.

Step Five: Celebrate! You've successfully integrated Lessonly with Slack. πŸŽ‰

πŸ’‘ Note: As of this writing, Slack does not allow customers to add integrations at a global account level. Individual users must follow these steps to receive assignment notifications in Slack.
