No more switching tabs because Design Shifu is now available in your own Slack Workspace. Use the integration to connect with Design Shifu and raise requests, upload assets, receive source files, send notes, and rate experience from a single channel with your team.
Table of Contents
To begin with the integration, log in to your Slack workspace from the Design Shifu Dashboard using the browser of your preference.
Create a new channel by clicking on the +Add Channel option. This channel will serve as your one-stop for all design-related transactions with Design Shifu.
Select Create a new channel and feed in the name and description of the channel. Once done, click on the Create button.
Your channel is then added to your Slack workspace and appears on the panel to the left. You can also add your team members to this particular channel to take their inputs for briefs and feedback on designs.
Go back to the Design Shifu dashboard and head to the Settings tab.
Click on the Add To Slack button. You will be redirected to a new tab that lists the integration details. Select the newly created Slack channel from the drop-down menu at the bottom.
Once you have selected the channel, click on the Allow button to grant access to Design Shifu and initiate the integration with the workspace. Once done, you’ll be able to access this integrated channel from the browser or mobile app.
Open your Slack workspace and tap on the integrated channel. Hit on ‘/’ (i.e. backslash) to access a set of Slash commands.
You will have some new commands. Select the /add-request command to add a new request to Design Shifu and press Enter.
The Add New Request form pops up on the screen. Fill in the request details like name, file size and dimension, target audience, reference links, additional descriptions, formats, etc.
Click on the Submit button when done. Your request is now added to the channel successfully.
