Update (12/20/16): The Salesforce integration for Slack is now available! To use this integration, install or request Salesforce from our App Directory and log in with your Salesforce account. Once connected, you’ll be able to quickly find and share information from Salesforce without leaving Slack. Want to share messages between Slack and Chatter? You can do that too, by asking your Salesforce Admin to install the Slack app from AppExchange.
For a refresher on the things you can do when you use Slack and Salesforce together, read more below.
Slack and Salesforce — both big parts of many people’s working lives. And the better we work together, the more productive you can be. That’s why we’re officially partnering with Salesforce to deliver several new integrations over the next month (with many more to follow). Here’s what’s coming:
Search Salesforce from Slack
Using the /salesforce slash command you can search for an opportunity or contact in Slack. Your search will return three results, and when you click one, it will expand to provide you with basic account details right where you’re working.
Keep Chatter and Slack in sync
Use either the /chatter slash command or the /slack slash command to send updates from Slack into Chatter and vice versa.
Connect Slack channels with Salesforce records
Assign a Slack channel to a Salesforce customer record and a new section on that record will display the unread message count for the connected channel. This way anyone working in Salesforce will be able to see when an account is being actively discussed in Slack.
Finally, as an added bonus, Salesforce URLs will now unfurl in Slack and include better formatting.
