About the Integration

This Slack app notifies Seismic Learning users of new assignments. Each assignment notification has a lesson link, the name of the assignor, and the due date (if applicable).

Note: Lessonly has rebranded to Seismic Learning, but this change has yet to promulgate to Slack's app directory.

How to Install the Integration

Step One: Ensure that you're logged into Slack, then navigate to the Slack App Directory. Search for Lessonly, then 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.

πŸ“ 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 Seismic Learning account. If the user is already logged in this step is skipped.

Step Four: Allow Seismic Learning (formerly Lessonly) to access the Slack workspace.

The user will then receive this welcome message in Slack.

Step Five: Celebrate! You've successfully integrated Seismic Learning 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.
