Configure Zoe for Slack

Who can use this feature?

Slack for Zoe requires the following permissions for configuration:

  1. Admin or owner-user in Slack
  2. Totango admin permissions

Zoe for Slack does not require an unlimited license, but capabilities are limited with the free edition. Learn more.

If your organization's Slack admin does not have Totango admin account, consider creating a temporary Totango global admin user to share with your IT team who manages Slack. Post installation, disable the temporary Totango admin user.
