The first time you add a Slack card to a FLO, you need to set up a configuration for that Channel. Setting up a configuration will allow you to connect the Designer to your Slack account, save the data, and reuse that configuration next time you build a FLO with this card. That way, you don’t have to sign in every time you want to build a FLO with this Channel. After you’ve set up one configuration, you can choose to use that configuration again, or set up a new one.

You can set up and save multiple configurations and share them with your teammates. Here’s how to set up a new configuration in Slack:

  1. Add the Slack card you would like to use to your FLO. If you already have configurations set up, you will have to select Add¬†Account to create a new configuration. If you don’t have any configurations set up, you will automatically be taken to the next step.
  2. Name your configuration. Choose something unique, since you may need to be able to tell multiple configurations apart in the future.
  3. Click Authorize.
  4. In the popup window, select the Slack account you would like to connect to. You may be asked to sign into Slack before you can complete this step.
  5. Next, select Authorize to give the Designer access to your Slack data. Note that this allows the Designer to send messages on your behalf. You can reuse this configuration any time you use the Slack Channel in a FLO.
