Slack

SaaS Management integrates directly with Slack, so you can view all user activity within the application. The integration gives you the usage data you need to make informed decisions on inactive licenses and any renewal or purchasing options. For example, you can view data on when users were last active in Slack to determine if their licenses are needed. You can also audit apps that have access to your Slack data.

SaaS Management offers two Slack integrations: Slack and Slack Enterprise. Organizations with a Free, Standard, or Plus plan should integrate with Slack. Organizations with a Slack Enterprise plan should integrate with Slack Enterprise. Select the name of your workspace in the top left-hand corner of Slack to see which plan your organization has.

Note

Depending on the size of your Slack organization, we may not be able to pull your entire Slack history. However, after we start retrieving data, SaaS Management will fetch data every night to ensure a historical snapshot.
