The Chartbeat Slack integration makes it impossible for newsroom teams to not be connected to their content’s performance across all their communication platforms. After you connect your company’s Slack with your Chartbeat Publishing account, you’ll start receiving updates and alerts as they happen and be able to use unique Chartbeat slash commands to ask real-time questions about your content's performance.
Steps to Install
If your Chartbeat login has the role of 'Admin', you will be able to set up the integration. Head over to the integrations tab in your Settings page at https://chartbeat.com/
Next, select the Connect button under the Slack icon and you’ll be redirected to the Slack page and guided through the process. You will be prompted to enter or confirm your company’s Slack credentials and Slack will take care of the rest.
Once an admin user on your account has connected your Chartbeat account to your organization's Slack workspace and individual channels, each individual user in Chartbeat can create notification rules and be able to use slash commands to get specific Chartbeat data posted directly into your Slack channels.
Teams can be notified when:
- a spike alert goes off
- an Advanced Queries report completes
Customers who have integrated Chartbeat with Slack will now have the option to receive Spike Alerts in a selected Slack channel. To configure, users will just have to enable "Slack message" and select which channel the spike alert should post to.
Advanced Queries customers can setup "Query Complete" slack notifications through their Advanced Queries Settings Page.
Use the slash command /chartbeat to get traffic updates directly from Chartbeat. If you’re not familiar with Slack’s slash commands, check out Slack’s support doc.
The basic structure for the /chartbeat command is as follows, but is completely customizable to reflect your site’s unique sections, authors, and more:
/chartbeat METRIC on HOST where FILTER is FILTER_VALUE
Some examples would be:
/chartbeat what are the top pages on yourdomain.com
/chartbeat how many people are currently on yourdomain.com
/chartbeat how much traffic is on stories where section is business
/chartbeat what are top pages where author is josephine hartbeat
/chartbeat how much traffic on yourdomain.com was referrered by facebook.com
