IdeaScale has an integration with the popular collaborative workspace, Slack. We think there’s a ton of golden ideas being discussed right now in your channels - now you can simply select text of an idea Slack and add an idea to your community. Members can now submit ideas directly through their Slack workspace. Moderators can approve or deny new member and idea requests. Members can view the latest and hottest ideas and subscribe to daily idea updates.

The Slack App will be automatically installed when the user set up their community via slack.

  2. To Remove App: In-order to successfully uninstall, first delete the setup on Slack App by using command "/ideascale setup delete CommunityAlias" and then administrator should remove it from IdeaScale community "App Directory".
