Connecting Your Account
Connect your SurveyMonkey by Slack by typing
/surveymonkey in Slack. The app will respond with a link you can click on to connect.
You'll need to authorize Slack to connect with your SurveyMonkey account when prompted and be able to login to your SurveyMonkey account. When you're successfully connected, the SurveyMonkey app will message you on Slack to let you know.
Asking Simple Questions in Slack
/ask command let's you poll a Slack channel and ask a single question.
To set up a poll in Slack, first go to the channel you want to poll. You'll need to invite the integration into any private channels. Once you’re there, type
/ask followed by the question you want to ask (in quotes), and then each answer option (in quotes). Here's an example:
Once you press Enter, you can preview the survey and set up some options before posting. Your work will be hidden from anyone else in the channel you're typing in until you post.
|Option||How it works|
|Hide Results||Response counts won't display beneath your poll.|
|Make Anonymous||How each person answered won't show in your poll's thread.|
When you post, the app direct messages you the options to close or remove your poll. Closed polls still show, but can no longer collect responses. Removed polls disappear. You can also remove a poll the same way you'd delete any other message in Slack.
Your poll and its responses show up in SurveyMonkey with the question you asked as the survey title.
Sharing Surveys, Results, and Inviting Collaborators
/survey command lets you choose a survey and invite members of a Slack channel to comment on it, view its results, or take it.
/survey in a Slack channel and you'll be asked to choose one of your existing surveys, what you'd like to do with it, and the channel you'd like to share to.
Setting Up Notifications for Responses or Comments
/survey command also lets you notify a channel when new responses come in or a collaborator leaves a comment on one of your surveys.
If you're setting up response notifications, you'll have the choice to set them instantly or to get a once-a-day summary. You'll get comment notifications soon after a comment comes in.
You can view and delete notifications you've setup by typing:
