You can also click on Slack logo on the app collection page:


2) WebHook URL

If you are concerned about privacy or do not have admin access to Slack team that needs integration, you can use webhook. 

Instead of using "Add to Slack", you can add Slack channel WebHook URL.

How to find the URL in Slack?

  • Copy Slack Webhook URL.

  • Paste the copied link in the appropriate fields in AppFollow.

Every app is added to Slack separately. That helps you decide which Slack channel should receive data about a particular app. For instance, you can divide iOS and Android reviews. Or you can set up export of negative comments (1-2 stars) and positive ones (3-5 stars) to different channels.

With the help of our integration, you'll be able to do the following as well:

  • Search the user by pressing his / her name under any review
  • Reply to the reviews (only for Google Play)
  • Access permalink for any review 
  • Translate reviews  
  • Add tags by redirecting to your personal AppFollow account



To switch on the "Reply" feature (available for Google Play apps) you have to set-up integration with Google Play. It's possible via Account Developer ID or OAuth Client ID
