How to connect AskAI with Slack

  1. Create your first AskAI

If you don't already have an account, you'll need to create one and then create your first AskAI by adding some web pages or documentation.

  1. Add the My AskAI app for Slack to your Workspace

This needs to be done by a Workspace Owner.

  1. Get your AskAI's ID and API Key

In the Embed/Integrate page for your AskAI, enable Slack, then copy your AskAI's ID and API Key from the same page.

  1. Save your AskAI's ID and API Key within Slack

    1. Select the My AskAI app within Slack

    2. Select 'Connect My AskAI'

    3. Input the ID and API Key, from the last step, into the popup within Slack

    4. Select 'Submit' to save these settings

  1. Ask your first question with the /askAI command

You and your team can start asking questions to your AskAI in any channel with the /askAI command, followed by your question.

You can also use the /askAI-help command, for more help at any time.

e.g. /askAI what is our company's annual leave policy? You can then ask follow-up questions within the same Slack thread and start a conversation with your AskAI. If you want to ask a question in a private channel, you need to add @askai to your channel. Just tag @askai and then select "Invite".

Your Slack bot will not search your Slack history unless you were to export the data from the Slack and upload it as a supported content format.

You can't change the name of the Slack Bot from "My AskAI" currently.
