Ability to customize Slack notifications

It should be possible to choose only few types of messages which should be sent to Slack (via Slack integrations). Right now every action in Aha! is creating a notification, it creates a lot of noise.

    The new and improved integration was just launched. It enables you to completely customize the activity events that you send. You can create as many streams as you need and as many Slack channels as you want.

    The integration was just featured on Product Hunt. So, if you like this, check it out on Product Hunt and leave a comment

    The use case I have in mind is – A release PM makes specific changes to a release in Aha! and wants to trigger off a slack notification to a particular channel. Alternately, can a specific Release slack channel be setup to receive Release related updates?

    +1 on this... I've had to disable Slack integration because it's just too spammy... But I'd love to be able to re-enable it.

    I disabled the Slack Integration too. it was creating a lot of noise.

    - I would just like to subscribe to just features that I am working on. I would have a private channel on Slack that I would use as a substitute for email notifications

     

    - Also have a public channel where only product specific activity is being posted.

    Agreed -- this integration is way too noisy.

    I have disabled the integration also due to noise. As one example I would like to be able to set it up so only activity in the ideas portal was sent to a specific ideas channel in Slack.

    I'm so glad I saw this prior to setting it up... I'll just vote and wait to see if the integration changes.

    This would be good not just for Slack but for email notifications as well

    I totally forgot about this Idea and enabled Slack notification. Regretting it now. I'd vote again if I could.

    If you are interested in this enhancement, please share what type of notifications you would like to receive. How should we allow you to filter the notifications? Let us know your thoughts.

    It would be great if you could filter AHA mentions - for example, the channel would only show your AHA mentions.

    I would also like to see updates of features and releases that I am working on or that I am watching. Ideally each user could customize what they would like to see

    I would like to have the ability to make a choose as to which events get pushed out to Slack...i.e. promoting ideas to features, a status change on a feature etc....perhaps a configurable "publish in slack" option for events  in workflows for ideas, features and releases......Additionally, it would be great to still continue the all message broadcast that is there today to a specific slack channel of choice....i.e. a filtered even publishing for an all team channel and an unfiltered publishing for a private channel (I've actually found the publish all current mode to be useful to scroll through - but the entire company would ignore it)

    I would want to set up separate integrations by Product and be able to differentiate by feature status. Also, it would be good to have the ability to either notify based on comment or change to feature summary or change to a system/custom field.

    In my #customers channel in Slack I would like to send all new ideas (and maybe votes & comments too)

    In my #product channel in Slack I would route all New and Completed Todo's and I would also send Status changes to Features (ideally for only certain stages like Dev Started, Ready QA, Shipped etc.)

    I think the ability to send ideas to slack would great!
