Slack is a team chat that promises a simpler, more pleasant, and more productive communication in your teams and company.
Tideways intregates with Slack to forward alerts about response-time degradation and failure rate increases directly to a Slack channel.
You can integrate with Slack through the Tideways Slack App, or manually with the Incoming Webhook integration.

At the bottom, find the "Connect Your Slack Workspace to Tideways" section and click on "Connect Slack".
On Slack integration page select a channel of a workspace that you want to send messages to and confirm access. Tideways now shows the Slack channel on the integration page and you can select it for all notifications of the organization.

Select a channel you want to post alert notifications to and click on "Add Incoming Webhooks Integration".
