Once the Slack app is connected to your FloQast account, the option to manually configure Slack Notifications becomes available in your Notifications Settings located on your Profile Settings page.

FloQast Review Notes are fully integrated with Slack. When a Review Note is created, the note's assignee will receive a Slack message including the context and content of the new note. Then, the assignee can respond to the note directly in Slack and change the note's status, and those updates will flow directly to FloQast! A full record of the Review Note is maintained in FloQast, whether the updates were made in-app or via Slack
The FloQast Bot understands three simple commands that will display your assigned FloQast items that are either due today, due tomorrow, or even past due for any workflow across the last, current, and next periods. You can message these prompts directly to the FloQast App via DM or use the app in any channel by prefacing the command with /fq, or /fqe if you are a client on FloQast's EU database.
After using the Today, Tomorrow, or Late commands, FloQast will send a list of any items that meet the query. From that list, users can click to view the items directly in FloQast, and can even sign off on Checklist items with one click in Slack. Those Sign-Offs will be sent to FloQast and recorded in-app, exactly the same as any other Sign-Off.
