In December 2020, Guru is making updates to our App for Slack which requires teams to re-authenticate the Guru and Slack connection.

What's changing with Guru's App for Slack?

Slack recently released an update to their integrations to allow Guru to have more specific and secure control of permissions in Slack. Our team is actively improving Guru's App for Slack in order to support:

  • Option to create a new Guru Card from an entire Slack thread instead of just a single message

  • More reliable creation of Activity Feeds in private Slack channels, as long as the Guru bot is invited to the channel

  • and many more improvements to come!

In order to see these improvements, a Guru Admin on your team must re-authenticate Guru's App for Slack following the steps below. Only one of your Admins must complete this, individual users will not need to take any action.


✍️ Note:
If you fail to complete this re-authentication, you and your Guru team will lose out on any future improvements to Guru's App and potentially experience buggy behavior, as our product development team is not making further changes to our old Slack App.
