FAQs: Slack integration with Zonka Feedback

Can I keep separate settings for Notifications, Custom Alerts and Distribute Surveys for different Surveys?

Yes. You will notice that the Integrations tab is inside the Survey and not globally available in your Zonka Feedback interface.

With the Slack integration, you can keep different settings for different Surveys. For instance, if you want to trigger Survey Response Notifications for Survey A and not for Survey B, you can set it on for Survey A and off for Survey B.

This gives you full control over how your Slack Integration works for different Surveys.

Can I connect different Slack workspaces for different Surveys?

Yes, you can connect different Slack workspaces for different Surveys and manage the integration and settings for Slack separately for separate Surveys. However, you will be able to see all Connected Slack workspaces while setting up the integration throughout your account in all surveys.

Can I connect different Slack workspaces for the same Survey?

Yes, you can connect different Slack workspaces for the same Survey. However, at any given time only one of these would be connected and active. Ensure that the correct Workspace is connected when setting up Slack Notifications, Custom Alerts, and Distributing the Surveys.

Can I send Zonka Feedback Notifications, Custom Alerts, and Zonka Feedback Surveys to Slack private channels?

No, the Slack integration works for Public Channels and Users. You cannot send Notifications, Custom Alerts, or Surveys to Private Channels.
