How to get Slack info

1. Open the User Settings page and press the "Connect with Slack" button.

Pressing this button does not mean that the linkage will be established immediately. It can also be immediately cancelled after the linkage is established.

2. Enter the name of the workspace you want to log in to.

To know the workspace ID you want to log in to, open that workspace and click on the workspace name in the upper left corner. The workspace ID will then be displayed.

3. Log in to Slack

Log in with the account from which you want to retrieve data. If you are using multiple accounts, don't worry if you log in with the wrong account, you can redo it later!

4. Authorization request is displayed, check the contents and press the "Allow" button.

The scope required for aggregation in WorkStats will be displayed. (If the user is a Slack admin, or if the workspace is configured to not require authorization to install the app) Check it and if it is OK, click the "Allow" button. Then jump to step 8.

If you did not see this screen, go to the next step 5.

5. If the app installation request screen appears, please make a request.

If the user is not a Slack admin, and the workspace is configured to require Admin approval to install the app, a screen will appear asking you to submit a request to the Admin to install the WorkStats app.

Clicking "Submit" button will take you to an administration page where you will see that you are awaiting approval.

6. Wait for your request to be approved or contact the Admin (if you know).

SlackBot will send a direct message to the Admin and the user needs to wait for the approval. Prompt the Admin as needed. For the Slack Admin, see the details here; [Slack Official Help] Manage app requests for your workspace.

As you can see in this image, if an admin presses the "Approve for WorkStats" button in the message sent by SlackBot, it will give you permission to install the WorkStats app!

7. The Admin allows to install WorkStats apps

When the admins approve the installation of the WorkStats app, the admins are notified of the approval.

When the admin approves the installation of the WorkStats application, the user who submitted the application will also be notified that it has been approved. Let's go back to step 1 and continue the process! The next step should be a breeze to install.
