1- Approve the Pyn Slack App for your workspace

Ask your Slack Workspace Administrator (usually someone within your IT department) to approve the Pyn Slack app for your company.

Pyn can be found and installed from the Slack App directory.

2- Add the Slack integration within Pyn

⚠️ You'll need to be a Pyn Administrator to complete these steps*.

Sign into Pyn. Select Integrations and choose Slack.

Click the "Add to Slack" button to initiate the connection process.

Slack will ask for the permissions the Pyn Slack app requires. This includes:

  • Permissions to match users in Pyn to Slack via email address

  • Permissions to send Pyns via direct message to people

  • Permissions to send Pyns via group or channel to people

Click Allow.

After approving, you will be redirected back to the Pyn integrations page and receive a confirmation message in Slack from Pyn.

This confirms the installation has been successful.

That's it! You're ready to use Slack.

FAQ
