👉 Admins can use these instructions to link a Slack channel to a circle.
Seamless Slack Integration
If your team is using Slack to communicate at work everyday, whether they’re in an office, remote, or both! Holaspirit helps stay on track while using Slack.
When communicating with coworkers, you can tag a role directly in Slack. It keeps you in the habit of making requests of a role rather than a person. It also makes it easier for the role-filler to consider their role when processing.
Use the following shortcuts to tag a role, a member on Slack:
/holaspirit @rolename = retrieves data from role
/holaspirit @membername = retrieves data from member
@rolename [text] = notifies the members of the role
A drop-down list of roles, ordered alphabetically, will appear. Pick the role you want to address. Write your message and submit it. People filling the tagged role will be notified about your message, the same as if you had used their individual names.
Keep track of Decisions, Projects, and OKRs
Day-to-day, people use Holaspirit to collaborate on proposals, meetings, projects and OKRs. With the integration, people can get instant notifications from the Holaspirit bot in Slack for the following events:
creation/update/deletion of a role/circle
creation/update/deletion of a policy
election of a user for a core role
assignation of a user to a role
creation/update of a project
creation/update of an OKR
The result is that collaboration becomes easy. Your team knows what’s happening and how they can contribute.
Here's how you can integrate Holaspirit with Slack.
Note: A Slack channel can be link to more than one circle of Holaspirit.

Holaspirit will confirm the app installation
Additional steps might be required on Slack app administration if app approval is turned on for your workspace. You can manage app from the Slack App Directory.
[users_not_found] Unable to retrieve member from slack with email *****@****.**
How to fix it : You need to invite this user on Slack with the exact same email as the one in Holaspirit
[paid_teams_only] Unable to create slack user group from role ****
How to fix it : You need to subscribe to Slack to be able to have user groups (User groups are used to represent roles in Slack, if you keep the free version of Slack, you will be able to use everything except the user groups)
Once you have corrected the cause of the error, you need to deactivate and reactivate the Slack integration again.
