Support for Buttons in Slack

(John Jackson) #1

We’ve added support for Slack’s new buttons!

You’ll now see an extra field when you set up a new Slack bot, which is a URL you’ll need to paste into the Interactive Messages section in Slack.

To enable buttons on existing Slack bots, you’ll need to take some steps:

  • Click Bots on the top menu in Flow XO and click Edit to open up your Slack bot settings.
  • Head over to
  • In Slack, find your bot and click on its name in the list, and then click on Interactive Messages on the left menu.
  • Click Enable Interactive Messages, and copy in the Slack App Interactive Messages Action URL from Flow XO. Click Save changes.
  • Finally, save the bot settings in Flow XO, which will activate the feature.

Hope you like the change!

When too many characters or choices are included in the choices they are no longer sent as buttons. On slack there is a maximum of 5 choices that can be sent before the buttons are converted to text.
