Using Slack with Bluescape

You can connect Bluescape with Slack, which automatically posts any comments made in a workspace to a particular Slack channel. This enables seamless communication between a channel’s team members and collaborators in Bluescape.

Supported Features

  1. Object-Level Comments. When you or a collaborator comments on a workspace object (for example, a Canvas, image, etc.), a message sends to the linked Slack channel. The message contains a link to go back to the Bluescape workspace to provide feedback

    Note: Synchronization from a Slack channel back to the workspace is not supported.

  2. Meeting Start Event. The message is placed in the linked Slack channel when you or a collaborator starts a workspace meeting. The message contains meeting links, so you can use them to join the meeting.

  3. Document Upload/Creation Event. When you or a collaborator upload a document to the workspace, a message sends to the linked Slack channel. The message contains a link to go back to Bluescape Workspace and see the document.
