Communication is definitely at the core of every successful company. We speak from experience — we hated keeping conversation only in our inboxes. Suddenly Slack came to the rescue.
Slack is today’s go-to tool for ongoing conversations. It’s not only useful for informal chatting but also to make information flow quickly. Very often the whole team is involved in the design process. Their success of transforming the first wireframe to the final product definitely depends on easy access to information. Go ahead and integrate your UXPin account with Slack to discuss feedback in detail and update your team about important changes within seconds.
In order to notify your team via a Slack channel, connect your UXPin account to Slack. Open “Notification settings” and there it is. Just click “Add to Slack” button.
Next, enter your details and authorize this action:
Only the owner of the account has the right permission to integrate with Slack. Other users won’t see this option.
Go back to the “Notification settings” section where you can see that your notification can be send via Slack now.
Share the Project Status
When everything’s set up, join your project to the Slack channel where you’d like to post the updates. To do so, open the Activity feed in your UXPin dashboard and pick the proper channel from the dropdown:
Please note that Slack only integrates with public channels.
Voila! All updates are stored in one single location and your team members are happy knowing what’s going on:
Learn about every nook and cranny of Project Status feature in this tutorial. The same kind of notification will appear in your special Slack channel when you:
- Create new prototype
- Upload new document
- Archive your project
- Duplicate prototype/document
Share your prototype
Would you like to engage your team in the design process or ask them for their feedback? Nothing’s easier. Send them a hyperlink to your prototype with a short note on Slack! All you have to do is click on the share icon in the upper right corner of the application and click on “Slack” tab in the modal window. Here you can pick special Slack channel to share your preview link and attach a custom message to draw your teammate’s attention:
This way your coworkers just click on the prototype’s name to access your design!
Notify certain people
If you want to draw attention to your updates, you can notify specific people or entire groups, such has @here, when you share your prototype with the team.
Check your comments quickly
Commenting in a Slack channel and deciding upon next steps is much easier than asking users to email you their thoughts. There’s a far better alternative for you to check whether feedback has already arrived than opening UXPin preview links with your design. If your project has been already connected to the Slack channel, the very moment one posts a comment in the preview mode, you’ll be informed about it:
You’re not only up to date but also you can reply in real time and click on the prototype’s name to see what parts of your design comments relate to.
Great communication skills are always an advantage but now you can keep your team informed in more efficient way and save your precious time. Try out UXPin’s integration with Slack in your account, or sign up for a free trial!
