Share Amplify posts from Slack

Follow your organization’s Amplify feed and share Amplify posts to your social accounts right from Slack.

Install the Amplify app in Slack

Install the app in your organization’s Slack workspace so others in your organization can access it. Learn more about installing apps in your Slack workspace.

One person needs to do this one time for your organization's Slack workspace. Once it's installed, others in your organization can find and add the app to their Slack workspaces using the following Add Amplify to Slack instructions.

Not sure if someone already installed the app? Use the instructions in the following Add Amplify to Slack section to check. If you don’t see the Amplify by Hootsuite option, it likely means it isn’t installed.

  1. Request an installation link from your organization’s customer success manager.
  2. Use the link to add the app to your organization’s available apps in Slack.

Add Amplify to Slack

Once you’ve installed the app in your organization’s Slack workspace, other members can add it to their workspace. Each member should do the following:

  1. Go to Slack and select Apps from the top of the left sidebar. If you don’t see this option, select More to find it.
  2. Search for Amplify by Hootsuite, and then select Add.
  3. Select Add to Slack.
  4. Go to your Apps in Slack, select Amplify by Hootsuite, and sign in with your Hootsuite credentials.

Work with Amplify content in Slack

Open the Slack app, go to the Apps list, and select Amplify by Hootsuite to see your company’s content and share it right from there. Your Apps list changes to reflect the apps you use most often. To keep Amplify by Hootsuite visible, you can star it in Slack. Learn how to star channels in Slack.

When you open the app in Slack, you’ll see up to 10 of your organization’s most recent Amplify posts, sorted from newest to oldest in the Home tab. Just like in Amplify, you’ll see the type of post, publish time, share information, and the post’s topic.

Filter your posts by topic

Want to view the most recent Amplify posts by topic? Use the Select a topic list to show up to 10 of the most recent posts in a topic. Select the topic from the list again to return to the most recent posts for all topics.

Share an Amplify post from Slack
