Getting started with Slack

It's easy to get ScrumGenius set up with Slack. Add it to your team today and hold your first automated standup to make your team more productive and efficient.

Note: Only the team leader needs to create an account with ScrumGenius. All other participants do not require an account and can submit answers without one.

Getting Started

If you don't already have an account, get started with ScrumGenius on Slack by selecting Sign In with Slack.

Next, you will be redirected to the following page. Select the Slack Workspace you wish to connect from the top right corner and then select Allow. By allowing permissions in this step, the login information used for this Slack Workspace will be automatically connected as the login information for your ScrumGenius account.

Next, you will be redirected to the following page to enter your organization's name.

Fill out the information to create your account as shown below. Since you have already connected and allowed login information with a Slack workspace in a previous step, the email has already been entered for you, as  shown below.

Next, fill out the last bit of information, including selecting Slack for 'Which platform do you use?'.

Once you've completed creating your account, you will be redirected to the following page. Select Connect Slack.

Then, select the Slack Workspace you wish to connect to on the top right corner and then select Allow to grant permissions.

Permissions Breakdown

Here's what we use the permissions for:
