Adding the GoLinks Bot to Slack

The GoLinks bot is the perfect addition to get your team using go links directly in Slack. This article is meant to assist with explaining how to download the Slack app and how to integrate and use the GoLinks Bot within the app.

To get the Slack app, you can install it directly from Slack with this link.

You can also access it by going to the Integrations tab of your GoLinks dashboard and installing it there.

  1. Automatically add GoLinks bot to every public channel (recommended)
  2. Enforce manual invite to each channel individually (not recommended)

When using a Slack channel that the bot has not been added to, any go/links shared within that channel will not turn into clickable links. Not only does this cause confusion with users because they believe the bot does not work, but it also requires more work to manually invite the bot to your Slack channels. To ensure seamless functionality from the bot, it is recommended to automatically add it to every public channel in the Slack app.
