Hoopla's Slack connector allows you to post messages to Hoopla TV Channels, and even update Metric values, right within Slack. Use this integration to create Newsflashes on-the-fly to announce someone's birthday, congratulate someone on an achievement, remind your team to update their forecasts, and track how many times your reps congratulate each other. You can also set up Slack Patterns that can trigger Newsflashes and Metric updates automatically.

*Note: You must have an active Slack account configured in order to use this integration.
