The InVision app for Slack allows you to receive notifications about relevant invites and 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.

Install the InVision app in Slack

To install the InVision app in Slack and connect your InVision account:

  1. Open Slack.
  2. Go to the Apps section > Add apps.
  3. Search for the InVision app and click on it. The InVision app channel opens.
  4. Select Connect to InVision . Your browser opens the InVision sign-in page.

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.

Receive notification from multiple InVision accounts in Slack

After installing the InVision app in Slack, you can connect multiple InVision accounts to it. If you have several InVision accounts associated with different email addresses, this will allow you to follow the conversations happening in all of them.

To connect multiple InVision accounts:

  3. Select the Home tab.
  4. In the section Your connected accounts, select Connect. Your browser opens the InVision sign-in page.

    If you're signed in to an InVision account already connected to Slack, select Switch at the top of the list of teams to sign in to a different account.

All your InVision accounts connected to Slack will appear in the Home tab of the InVision app in Slack.

FAQs

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, read Slack's documentation.
