While Walls.io does currently not offer a direct integration with Slack, it is easy to use our Zapier integration to push posts from a Slack channel to your wall! This step-by-step guide explains how you can achieve this!
🚨 Important: Please notice, that using our Zapier integration requires access to the Walls.io API – this is currently only included in our Premium plans!
1. Sign-up to Zapier
To get started, sign up with Zapier (https://zapier.com/) if you haven't already. Zapier is a marketing tool that allows you to connect hundreds of apps without coding skills. Zapier is offering free plans, so you can get started right away!
2. Enable API access for your wall
In Walls.io, go to "Settings" -> "API Access" and activate the access token:
3. Create & name your Zap
In Zapier, start to create your "Zap" by clicking "Make a Zap" (a Zap is kind of a "recipe" that will connect two apps, in our case Slack + Walls.io). Enter a name for your Zap, f.e. "Slack to Walls.io".
4. Choose "Slack" for the Trigger App
5. Choose "New Message Posted to Channel" as trigger event:
6. Sign in to Slack
If this is your first Zap using Slack, you'll have to "Sign in to Slack" with your Slack account to give Zapier permission to access your Slack channels:
7. Choose the Slack channel
Next, choose a Slack channel that you want to connect with your wall:
Clicking "Test Trigger" will bring in the most recent post on the channel:
8. Choose "Walls.io" for the Action
9. Choose "Create Post" for the action event:
8. Sign in to Walls.io
If this is your first Zap using Walls.io, you'll have to "Sign in to Walls.io" and copy/paste the API token obtained in step 2:
9. Customize Post
Finally, you need to map the Slack fields to Walls.io. We recommend get started with these fields: Text User Name, User Image, Link.
🚨 Important: Pictures and videos are currently not supported!
10. Test your Zap and turn it on!
After turning on your Zap, all posts published on the Slack channel will be automatically sent to your Wall! 🚀
