Slack Is In The House

Hi there! Get here from the Slack App Directory?

First thing's first: Sign up for bitHound today!


At bitHound, we are always looking for new ways to bring attention to the issues impacting your team while continuing to save you time. And what could be more synonymous with 'saving time' than the infamous messaging app, Slack?

You'll be able to setup and receive notifications right to the Slack channel of your choosing for any of your private or public projects.

Getting started is super-simple! Click the Add To Slack button on your project's dashboard and follow the instructions!

Add to Slack

You'll be asked to give bitHound authorization to post messages to a channel of your choosing. Once everything is all setup, you'll receive a Slack message from us indicating everything worked.

After completing these steps you'll then start to see your bitHound notifications pop up in Slack. We'll keep you posted as we identify new priorities on your integrated projects.
