Get Connected with Slack

We are thrilled to announce our new integration with the collaboration software Slack!  Slack is used in more than 750,000 companies to help employees work together more efficiently, we are excited to integrate with Slack to extend the collaboration possibilities in your business and home.

Setup is Straightforward

To add the Slack integration to your DAKboard Custom Screen, simply click the “Add a Block” button when editing a Custom Screen, and search for ‘Slack’:

Next, edit the newly added Slack (messaging) block, link your Slack account and then select which Slack channel you’d like to see on your DAKboard screen:

Save your changes, and preview your screen to see messages from Slack!

Enhance Office Communication

Use our new integration with Slack to always ensure your team is up to date. Take advantage of a TV in the break room, conference room, or elsewhere in the office to post company-wide messages for all to see! Here’s some great uses:

  • Work related messages for the team
  • HR policy updates, events and ideas
  • Shout-outs and congratulations for a job well done

Use Slack and DAKboard Creatively at Home

Not only is our Slack integration a great fit at the office, but it can be a great help at home as well! Just create a free Slack account, and (optionally) invite other family members so they can post as well. The possibilities are endless:

  • Tell the family what’s for dinner tonight
  • Let everyone know when you’re on your way
  • Stay in touch with loved ones and close friends

This is even perfect for those older family members using DAKboard at home or at assisted living facilities. Use Slack to send a message and keep them up to date on things happening in the family.

  1. So glad to hear from you all! I was worried the lockdowns and the pandemic had done you in. Great new feature! Also would point out that in lieu of a proper IFTTT integration (still would love that!) , this would allow some basic level of integration using the Slack IFTTT integration.
