Connect Slack to UseResponse

Slack is being used by thousands of businesses worldwide and has been the most popular internal corporate messenger for the past years.

UseResponse provides integration of live chat and help desk solutions with Slack by making our customers use native iOS and Android Slack apps to get notifications and reply directly to customers from Slack applications.


Slack integration is available only in the Enterprise Cloud or Self-Hosted packages


Slack Integration Settings

First, you need to enable Slack in Administration » Applications.

In Administration » Slack click the Connect button. In the popup, select which default channel would be used for incoming messages from UseResponse and confirm permissions.


In order to have the ability to reply directly from Slack to all live chat or help desk messages, you would need to match user accounts of your agents in UseResponse and Slack users so that replies would go from the valid user accounts.

You can also set the option to create a new channel every time you get a new request from UseResponse.
