Create a new group by syncing a Slack channel

Streamline Group management by syncing with your Slack channels.

Updated over a week ago

There are two ways to create Groups on Five to Nine: you can create a group from scratch or sync a Slack channel to a Group.

By syncing Slack channels into Groups, you can streamline ERG (Employee Resource Group) membership management on the Five to Nine. This automation reduces manual efforts for ERG organizers and leads, ensuring that group information and membership stay up-to-date effortlessly.

Sync a Slack channel to a Group

  1. Navigate to the Groups page, and click "New Group" button

  2. Select the option to "Sync from a Slack channel" and click "Continue"

  3. Select the Slack channel you want to sync from the dropdown and click "Continue"

  4. Your Slack channel details will be automatically populated on the new group form, such as your group name and an external link to the Slack channel. If you wish to add more personal touch, fill out the details on the form and click "Create group"

    • Group Name: The group's title or name, serving as its identifier.
