Zoho Books - Slack Integration

Slack is a platform where multiple users can share their work and also automate routine tasks. Zoho Books - Slack integration allows you to easily monitor your customers’ client portal activities in Slack. The notifications that are triggered based on your customers’ actions in the client portal gets simultaneously pushed into your preferred Slack channel (#general, #random, etc.)

Let’s take a scenario where the sales team in your organization comprising of four members use Slack to communicate within the team and they use Zoho Books for accounting.

The sales team’s day-to-day activities involve contacting customers about new offers, sending them estimates, closing deals, keeping track of sales, etc.

Enabling the Zoho Books - Slack integration would push all client portal notifications from Zoho Books to the Sales team’s Slack channel. This will include notifications about an estimate getting accepted or declined, receiving payments for invoices, etc.

This saves a great deal of time as the integration brings all the information in one place, thereby keeping all the members of the team on the same page.

Connecting to Slack

Firstly, you would need to have a slack account. After this, you can integrate it with Zoho Books. Here’s how:

Add to Slack button

Choose Slack channel

Authorize slack integration

When you setup this integration, your Slack URL and credentials will be shared with Slack.

Receiving Notifications

Once the integration is complete, you will start receiving notifications into your Slack channel. For example, if your customer rates your service from his/her client portal, you will immediately receive a notification with details about the rating and the review (if any).
