How to set up and use your Collato Slack Assistant.

What's required:

  • Access to a Collato organization and one workspace with populated information.
  • Access to a Slack organization and permissions to add a Slack app there.
  • At least one Collato user must be connected to the Slack organization for the Assistant to generate answers. If the Collato Slack App is not connected to anyone (e.g. all users disconnect Slack authorization on Collato, but the Collato Slack App remains in the Slack organization), then it will not return any answers.

Step by step guide:

Before you start, it is highly advised that you create a workspace in Collato and populate the space with content with high relevance. Without a workspace, you will not be able to use the Slack Assistant.

To setup your Collato Slack Assistant, go to Integration Settings, find the Slack option and press “Connect”. This will bring a pop-up window where you will be asked to authorize Collato access to your Slack organization.

After allowing authorization, please remain on the same window. It will then ask you to select which Collato workspace you’d like the Slack Assistant to pull information from. Press “Confirm” and you’re all set.

At this point, you can open your Slack organization, and use the /collato slash command to initiate a query.

With the Slack Assistant, you can do the following:

  • Ask a question. (”Where can users find more information about the roadmap?”)
  • Prompt a summary or tweet to be generated about a topic. (”Write a summary about suggested connections.” “Create a tweet about the next release.”)

Current capabilities and limitations.

  • On Slack, you can use the slack command (/collato) to initiate the assistant.
  • In the next release, you can also configure the assistant to auto-reply to all messages in a channel.
  • All generated responses are based off of the information inside your selected workspace. Collato does not scan through public information outside of the workspace.
  • All derivative content is created based on the information you have in your workspace. If there is no supporting evidence, then the assistant will not be able to create a new content piece out of its imagination.
  • If there are multiple Collato users in one Collato organization, they can successfully authorize the Collato Slack Assistant to different Slack organizations.
  • In one Collato organization, you can only select one workspace as the knowledge source for your Slack assistant. If you share the Collato organization with more team members, and they want to add the bot to multiple Slack organizations, please be aware that all of the different Slack organizations will have access to the information from that same, one workspace.
  • There can only be one Slack Assistant in one Slack organization at a time.
