With Nimeyo, you can seamlessly bring knowledge right into Slack!
We provide integration into qPod, our knowledge management system where you search less and do more!
If you are interested, just go ahead and install this app, fill out the form on the next page, and we will set you up on a trial instance for you in no time flat.
Once your trial instance is created, you can use our Question and Answer interface to incorporate information from various sources like
E-mail, attachments, Salesforce, Slack, HipChat, Yammer, Box, SharePoint, Google Drive, JIRA, Confluence, Bugzilla, and more!
And once we automatically and securely digest all these knowledge platforms, we can provide this information to you right into your workflow.
Sure, we have a Stack Overflow web like interface, but we also have an Outlook App, Salesforce App, Chrome extension, and, of course,
you can get this information from Slack. In other words, we bring your knowledge into your workflow.
This app will allow you to log into qPod via Slack, allow you to import slack channels into qPod if you wish,
and most importantly, provide slash commands that allow you to query and post to qPod – so you don’t even have to leave Slack to get your work done!
qPod by Nimeyo’s Slack App Installation Instructions
Installation is a breeze.
Below are the steps needed:
- Click the Add to Slack button below to get started.
- If you have a qPod instance already created, we will setup everything for you automatically.
- If you do not have a qPod instance, once you install the Slack App, we will spin off a new instance of qPod (often within 1 business day),
so you can start playing with qPod and Slack right away. We’ll do the setup so you’ll hit the ground running!
- You can log into your qPod instance via Slack.
Just click on the “Login using Slack” link near the bottom of the page, and a user account will automatically be created based on your Slack credentials.
No need for new usernames or passwords – let Slack do the work.
- You will need to setup a Service Account for Slack, if not already done so.
- As Admin, click Admin near the top, then Plugins->Open Login’s options, and scroll down to Slack. Enter the username of a “Service Account” user
- A “Service Account” can be setup by having a user “Login using Slack” as described above
- After logging in, the user can find the username in the header of qPod, followed by “Hello”
- Note that qPod will be able to read in information from anything that the “Service Account” user has access to.
So, make sure to limit the user’s access in Slack to channels to only those you want shared with your entire qPod team.
Usually, this means, the user should not have access to private Slack channels.
- Once the qPod instance is setup, you can call /qpodask to query anything on qPod, or /qpodpost to post something on qPod. As simple as that.
- In addition, If you would like to import channels into qPod, you will need to log into qPod via an admin account
- Click Admin near the top, then Plugins->Open Login’s options, and scroll down to Slack.
- To import channels entirely, enter those channels you wish to import in the box labeled:
“Comma Separated list of Channels to Entirely Import (type “all” for all channels)”
- To import channels based on only “pinned” content,
enter those channels in the box labeled: “Comma Separated list of Channels to Import only Pinned messages (type “all” for all channels)”
- Channel imports will occur at midnight every day.
