At Chartio, we’re always looking for ways to JOIN people ON data and today we’re happy to announce that now we’re joining people on data through Slack! Sharing and communication is vital to any data driven organization and now through Slack, it’s easier than ever to share data with the right people.

Sharing to Slack

Providing the right context is critical in conversations involving data. We built this integration with the intention of improving any conversation happening in Slack involving Chartio and your data. The information you need will be directly in the context of your conversation.

To share your charts directly to Slack, open the chart options menu and click Share to Slack. Note: you will not see this menu item until you configure you first Slack room via Settings (see below).

A modal will pop up with the chart preview and you can select which Slack room you’d like to share the chart to and include a message for users to see.
