Receive Octane notifications directly in your Slack workspace
In your Octane account settings, navigate to the 'Integrations' panel. On this page, you will see the Slack integration connection status (e.g. "Not Installed").
Click the 'Connect' button to install the Octane Slack App:
This will redirect you to Slack's website. If you are not yet logged in to your Slack workspace, you will be prompted to first login.
