Isn’t it amazing how we have switched to video and photo communication (Instagram and Snapchat) when it comes to your social applications and we still stay stuck with words when it comes to professional work communications in the form of emails and or slack. Why?
To be honest, small teams never found a need because word of mouth communication was more effective, while for giants, there was never an effective tool available. So, word of mouth communication, or Google meetings, or in some cases live demonstrations helped them solve most of their problems.
However, with the video marketing industry expanding there is an emerging need for a platform for professional video sharing directly. Companies where most of the communication is done through videos sometimes face a setback for sharing content within the team. People in the education industry, training & development, circulating content for using new tools effectively, understand it better. Hence, there was a need for effective communication channel for video content at a professional level.
But how does StoryXpress solve that problem? (Puzzled, huh?)
With the new Slack Integration with StoryXpress, we are trying to enhance the richness of video communication among peers. How about creating videos within StoryXpress and sharing them directly within your slack channels and workspace members on a click.
Setting up slack integration with Storyxpress:
- In the bottom left corner look for integrations tab.
- After the integration tab opens look for slack in all integration division. You can search for slack if you find a difficulty finding the application.
- Click on GetApp Button to install the application in your workspace.
- Slack application should now reflect in my integration division.
- Now that you have installed the application, It will ask you to Authorize the slack application.
- Click on Authorize button in slack application card, a popup requiring your slack credentials/permissions (if you are already logged in) will open.
- Once you authorize the application for required permissions, the pop up closes automatically and the authorized button is now changed to disable.
Wow, you have successfully authorized with Slack. Sharing videos can now occur in the blink of an eye.
Sending a DM through Storyxpress:
Now that you have successfully authorized the App. You need to start using it. Here’s how:
- Go to the Videos tab from the left navigator.
- The video page appears. Search/ select the video you want to share and click on the arrow in the rightmost corner of the card.
- From the drop-down, select share option.
- Clicking on share will open a modal. Since you have authorized with App, this modal shows you slack as one of the options.
- Select Slack to see your Channels and DM’s list.
- A modal showing your DM List, channel list along with a message column will appear. You search for channels, if you have difficulty finding a particular channel.
- Select the channel/member you want to send the video to. You can select more than one at the same time.
- Add a message body that you want to send along with video.
- Click on the Send Message Button, and Hurray, It’s done!
This is how you can make your life easier by sharing videos in a click within your team. You can also disable the integration if you don’t find a need to use it.
