Open conversation with a contact in Slack

To start

  1. Download and install Slack.alfredworkflow
  2. Create a custom app for your team following these steps.
  3. Once you have your client ID and Secret, visit the address http://yannickglt.github.io/alfred-slack/ to generate a unique code for authentication in the Workflow:
  4. Launch the slack workflow with the parameter --add-client followed by the concatenation of the generated unique code and client Secret separated by semi-colons (e.g.: CLIENT_SECRET:UNIQUE_CODE). You can add several clients if you want to collaborate with several teams. You just need to repeat the two last steps. Example:

    slack --add-client 1234567890.123456789012|1234567890.123456789012.abcdef1234:1234567890abcdef1234567890abcdef

  5. Launch the cache refresh by taping the command --refresh. Example:

    slack --refresh

    The cache refresh may take up to several minutes depending on your organization size.

  6. Enjoy! Note: install the Packal Updater workflow if you want automatic updates.
