Slack Notifications

Set up Slack notifications to ping your team about incoming survey responses with GetFeedback Actions. Send out a post in Slack when you receive a high CSAT survey score, or when a customer needs a follow up after a low annual NPS. 

Send response notifications to Slack using the GetFeedback Slack Integration. Use this Slack integration to post to a public channel, @ your teammates, or send a direct message. 

Like with other GetFeedback notifications, you’ll write up the text of the Slack message and trigger the Slack post using tooling on the GetFeedback Actions page. 

Best Practices

Trigger Slack notifications using the GetFeedback Actions tooling. We collected a few different use cases where you might like to send a Slack message out as a notification. 

  • Notify CSM of low cx score

  • Notify CSM manager upon escalation

  • Create a high scoring lead notification for sales/BDR

  • Create churn notification for CSM

  • Create support notification for technical help

  • Escalate support notification

Connect GetFeedback to Slack

To set up Slack notifications with GetFeedback, you’ll first need to connect GetFeedback and Slack. To do this, navigate to Integrations > Slack > Edit > Slack Access Control. On the Slack control page, you can check the Connection Status to see if the apps are connected, or if the integration is still pending. 


Slack workspace permissions can vary, so you may need approval from your Slack admin to install the GetFeedback Slackbot. If that’s the case - connecting to Slack from this page should send a request to your Slack admin to install the GetFeedback integration. When they approve, you should receive a ping in Slack that the integration is complete.


If you are a Slack admin, or have appropriate permissions, your GetFeedback and Slack integration will set up automatically after you connect the applications from the Slack Control page.

  1. Select Post to Slack in the Select an option drop-down. If Post to Slack is selected before the integration is configured, you’ll see an error message.

  2. Choose the Slack workspace you’ll post to. If you have only one Slack Workspace we’ll select it for you.
