Slack

The Slack Integration addon will allow you to post a message to your slack when a user takes a quiz or test.

INSTALLATION/SETUP

Once you have purchased the addon, you will have access to download the addon. To install, simply upload the addon as a normal WordPress plugin. To do so, go to the Plugins page and click Add New. Then, click Upload. From there, upload the zip file that you downloaded when downloading the addon.

Once the addon has uploaded, you should now have the plugin QSM Slack Integration listed in your list of plugins. Activate that plugin. Once activated, the plugin will add a new tab to your Addon Settings labeled as “Slack Integration”.

Before you can use the Slack Integration addon, we must first enter the license key.

Adding Your License Key

Enter your license key from your account into the “Addon License Key” field on the “MailPoet” tab of the “Addon Settings”.

Lastly, click the Save Settings button. Your Slack integration is now set up!
