How to connect Slack - access metrics from Slack channels
Isn’t it a mess when your conversations about data and the data itself are in completely different places? Thanks to Databox's Slack connector, you can now view data in context, right where the conversation is happening.
Once you’re connected, you can use slack commands or talk directly to the bot (private conversation).Here are some of the quick and easy commands you can use to access your metrics right from Slack:
/metricslists all available metrics
/metric [your metric] [period]reports the data for the requested metrics. You can also use the following optional short codes for periods:
24h(last 24 hours),
7d(last 7 days),
WTD(week to date),
14d(last 14 days),
30d(last 30 days),
MTD(month to date)…
/alertslists the 5 most recent triggered alerts for your account
/scorecardshows your latest scorecard with up to 5 of your key metrics
/weeklydelivers your latest weekly summary
/helplists available commands
And voila! Data at your fingertips is only a click away. You’ll be able to instantly access metrics from any of your Databox-connected data sources, right from Slack. Check it out today!
