The new InVision app for Slack allows you to receive notifications of comments left on your freehands and prototypes directly in your Slack workspace, making it easier to follow the conversations happening in your documents. You just need to install the InVision app in Slack, connect your accounts, and start receiving notifications.
Note that the new InVision app for Slack is different from the previous InVision V7 integration with Slack and the Slack Studio App. These previous integrations will no longer be available as of October 27th, 2022, and you will need to install the new app by following the steps below.
Install the InVision app in Slack
To install the InVision app in Slack and connect your InVision account:
- Open Slack.
- Go to the Apps section > Add apps.
- Search for the InVision app and click on it. The InVision app channel opens.
- Click the Connect to InVision button. Your browser opens the InVision sign-in page.
- Sign in to your InVision account.
You can also install the InVision app from the Slack’s App Directory. Locate the InVision app in Slack's App Directory, click Add to Slack, and follow the prompts to authorize the app to connect to your Slack workspace and sign in to your InVision account.
Once installed, you will see a confirmation message in Slack letting you know that the InVision app is installed and you’ll start receiving notifications.
At this time, only one InVision account can be connected to your Slack workspace.
Which actions trigger a Slack notification?
Once you install the InVision app in Slack, the app notifies you of the following events on freehands or prototypes:
- When there is a new comment on a freehand or prototype you have created.
- When there is a reply to a comment thread you’re in.
- When someone mentions you in a comment.
To review these notifications in Slack, go to the Apps sections and locate the InVision app channel. Click the View comment button to view the comment in your InVision document.
It's not possible to disable notifications for specific freehands or prototypes.
Stop receiving InVision notifications in Slack
You can mute the InVision channel by following the steps in this article.
Your Workspace Owners will be able to remove the app from your workspace. They will need to follow these steps.
When I try to authorize InVision to post to Slack, I get this message: "Your team's settings don't allow authorizing third party apps." Why?
Slack team owners (and others you choose) can control which apps are available to members by creating a list of approved apps that the team can use to get work done. If an app isn’t listed in the team’s custom app directory, members can send a request to install it. For more information, check out Slack's documentation.
What should I do if I was using the previous InVision V7 integration with Slack?
The previous InVision V7 integration will be removed on October 27th, 2022. If you want to use the new InVision app in Slack, you will need to follow the steps listed above to install it.
