Configure your Slack integration

Using the OAuth token and your Slack ID, you can configure Slack notifications. Use the shortcut button from the Notifications Settings to be redirected to the Slack configuration in Faraday's Preferences and paste the token and your Slack ID obtained in the steps above.

Info If your role differs from an administrator, you only need to paste your Slack ID. For the integration to work, an administrator must initially paste the OAuth token into their own Faraday account.
