Auto-Forward @mentions Notification to Slack

ambiguous_per_all_tiers.png

Greenhouse Recruiting's current integration with Slack does not support Greenhouse Recruiting's @mentions feature. However, with some additional configuration, users can forward @mentions email notifications from your preferred email application directly into Slack. In this article, we will cover how to auto-forward Greenhouse @mentions email notifications directly to your Slack profile or a private/public Slack channel

 

Auto-Forward @mentions Notification to Slack Profile

Auto-forwarded Greenhouse @mentions email notifications to an individual Slack account will be handled by slackbot after being properly configured. To start, navigate to your organization's Slack account and click your organization's name in the upper left-hand corner.

From the subsequent dropdown menu, click Preferences.

Click Messages and Media from the left-hand panel and navigate down the screen to Bring Emails to Slack section and click Get a Forwarding Address.

Copy the forwarding address.

Paste the copied Slack-generated address into you preferred email application as a new forwarding address. You will need to apply additional rules to filter for Greenhouse @mentions emails. We suggest applying a filter that only sends emails that contain "mentioned you in a note".

Follow any additional verification to finish the auto-forwarding. If properly enabled slackbot will notify you anytime an email containing "mentioned you in a note" is received.

Auto-Forward @mentions Notification to Private/Public Slack Channel

Auto-forwarded Greenhouse @mentions email notifications to a private/public Slack channel requires an additional Email app. The Email app is for workspaces on a paid plan and allows you to generate a channel specific forwarding address.

To enable the app, click the Settings icon and select Add apps from the dropdown menu.
