Activity Feeds in Slack display new Cards and Boards added to Guru in a channel of your choosing. Keeping track of new content in Slack encourages adoption, as it reassures your team that Guru is a resource that's constantly evolving to meet their needs.
To access Activity Feed set up in Slack
Navigate to the Home tab in the Guru App in Slack.
Under the section titled Activity Feeds you can create, manage, and delete Feeds.
All users that have access to a Collection (as a Read Only user, Author, or Collection Owner) can create and delete their own Feeds. Only Admins have the ability to delete Activity Feeds other users have created.
To create an Activity Feed
Click the Create New button.
In step 1., choose a Slack channel for the Activity Feed to appear in.
In step 2., choose whether you want to create a Feed displaying the new Cards and Boards for a particular Collection, or a Feed displaying the new Cards added to a specific Board.
In step 3., begin typing the name of a Board or Collection. It will populate in the dropdown list.
Before clicking Create, you'll see a statement reiterating your choices above. (i.e. New Cards and Boards added to Technical Support Team will be displayed in #technicalsupport-activityfeed.)
A confirmation message will appear in the designated channel where the Feed has been created.
Creating Activity Feeds in private channels
You can create Activity Feeds for both public and private Slack channels. For private channels, you'll first need to invite the Guru app from the Integrations > Add apps menu of that channel.
You can not create an Activity Feed for a synced Collection.
To manage an Activity Feed
Click the Edit button to the right of the Feed that needs to be adjusted.
Within that menu, you can update an existing Feed by changing the connected Slack channel, Board, or Collection.
If you update an Activity Feed, you won't see a confirmation message like you would for an initial Activity Feed setup. Future Cards as dictated by the new provisioning will appear there.
To delete an Activity Feed
Click the Edit button to the right of the Activity Feed you would like to delete.
Click Delete Activity Feed at the bottom of that menu.
Any user can delete the Activity Feeds they have created. Admins can delete Activity Feeds created by anyone, by navigating to the All Activity Feeds in the dropdown.
There is no limit to how many Activity Feeds you can create for an individual Slack channel.
