Permissions Breakdown

Here's what we use the permissions for:

  • Access information about your public channels

    ScrumGenius uses this to get all your channels so you will be able to add a channel for the app to post a report summary in.

  • View email addresses of people on your workspace

    ScrumGenius uses this to fill in the email addresses of your team members for you.

  • Send messages as ScrumGenius

    ScrumGenius uses this to send messages to your team.

  • Access your workspace's profile information

    ScrumGenius uses this to fill in the names of team members for you.  
    It will also use this information to help you by filling in some fields if you are signing up for ScrumGenius.


The ScrumGenius both will now have been added to your Slack Workspace, which can be found under Apps > ScrumGenius. Proceed to set up your first report through the theScrumGenius dashboard.
