Connect Slack to your HotGloo account

Slack has become one of the most popular team collaboration tools out there. They feature real time messaging and file sharing for one-to-one and group conversations and so much more to kick-start and rethink group work. We at HotGloo are running Slack since the very beginning and communicate the entire work day over this brilliant app.

So let’s say it was a natural fit to connect Slack to HotGloo since most of you are also already running Slack and using it for team collaboration so why not hooking up and pushing HotGloos project communication into a public or private Slack channel?
