Share to Slack (STS) is a Chrome extension allowing users to quickly and easily share websites they are visiting with anyone in their Slack organization, whether that is public or private channels, or individual private messages with coworkers.
Built using the Slack API, STS retrieves a list of your public and private channels, as well as the users within your organization, and combines them into a searchable/scrollable list for easy navigation. After selecting a channel or individual user to share a link with, you are free to add an additional comment to your share to indicate why you may be sharing this URL.
STS requires the "Browsing History" Google Chrome permission in order to access the active URL you are visiting.
STS requires the user, group and channel Slack permissions in order to provide you with a list of potential entities to message.
To install STS, simply add the Chrome extension, visit the Settings page upon first launch and click the Auth button.
You will be asked to login to your respective Slack organization and accept the above mentioned permissions.
Once the permissions have been accepted, your account will be updated with the token, allowing you to share links from any Chrome browser, providing you are logged into you Google account.
To revoke STS's permissions at any time, simply visit the Settings page and select the red "Revoke Access" button.
