The ipushpull Slack app is being upgraded. These instructions apply to the older version of the app that is being replaced in Spring 2021. For more information or a preview of the upgraded app get in touch.
This page explains the commands you can use to pull live or static data from ipushpull into your Slack channel. For full instructions on setting up ipushpull for Slack, please visit this page.
How do I pull data into my Slack channel?
To pull data into your channel type /ipp pull followed by the ipushpull folder name and page name.
/ipp pull folder_namepage_name
Try it using one of our sample pages:
/ipp pull LiveDemoPages DemoStocks
How do I pull live data into my Slack channel?
By default the data will be static and unchanging. To pull live data into Slack add the parameter live to the end of the command:
/ipp pull folder_namepage_name [live|static]
Try it out:
/ipp pull LiveDemoPages DemoStocks live
As the source data updates, the data in your Slack channel will update, too. Stop the updates by pressing the Stop Updates toggle button. Restart the updates by pressing Start Updates.
How do I pull data as an image?
Slack doesn't include your original styles and formatting when it displays your data. You can pull an image of the data, including the original formatting, into your Slack channel using the image parameter:
To view the data in a live, updating pop-up window, click the Open in ipushpull link:
How do I download data to Excel?
To download the data to Excel, click the Download in Excel link. This creates an Excel file with two tabs. The first tab contains a static snapshot of the latest data - anyone can use this even if they don't have the ipushpull Excel add-in installed. The second tab contains live, updating data - this will only work if you have the Excel add-in installed and are logged into ipushpull.
