Easily Snap RebelMouse Into Slack

RebelMouse offers a Slack integration that allows you to sync your editorial process with Slack's notifications. We can set up three events that trigger notifications:

  • Changed stages in the editorial process
  • Edited a post
  • Published a post

Here's an example of how this looks:

We help you configure these events in our back end by using a Slack Webhook. The Webhook allows us to set up the template, what each notification says, and what channels to push to. Click here for more information on how to configure Webhooks, and review the following tutorial we've put together.

First, create a Slack app and enable Webhooks:

Next, create the Webhook:

Then, copy your new Webhook URL, and send it to support@rebelmouse.com:

A member of our support team will create a JSON file that we will then input on our back end, which will look something like this:

  "post_edit":{
    "channel":"https:\/\/hooks.slack.com\/services\/TL96RCFG8\/BLA75H4N9\/nBeiBlRpB0kQiXXXXXVSqRAk",
    "template":"{emitter_site_title} edited a post."
  },
  "workflow_stage_updated":{
    "channel":"https:\/\/hooks.slack.com\/services\/TL96RCFG8\/BLA75H4N9\/nBeiBlRpB0kQiXXXXXVSqRAk",
    "template":"Post set to '{stage_title}' stage."
  },
  "post_publish":{
    "channel":"https:\/\/hooks.slack.com\/services\/TL96RCFG8\/BLA75H4N9\/nBeiBlRpB0kQiXXXXXVSqRAk",
    "template":"{emitter_site_title} published a new post!"
  }
}

Here's how it will look on your Slack channel during testing:

If this is something you're interested in implementing, email support@rebelmouse.com and let us know. We'll help you get it set up.

Happy Slacking!

RebelMouse CEO: Reimagining Diversity “Starts in the Office”

Why women, minorities, and the LGBTQ+ community will restructure workplace norms

Entering a new decade means a new opportunity to change how we approach diversity. In a joint interview alongside Leanne Pittsford of Lesbians Who Tech, RebelMouse founder and CEO Andrea Breanna said that the only way to fight patriarchal dominance is to encourage and nurture more women, minorities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community in the workplace, particularly in tech.

Over half of RebelMouse's employees are women or identify as LGBTQ. Read our full diversity and inclusion report here.
