Add RSS feeds to Slack
Have a favorite blog or news site? You can use Slack to subscribe to RSS and Atom feeds so updates from frequently-updated websites come directly into a Slack channel of your choice.
Install the RSS app
To get started, you’ll need to add the RSS app to your Slack team.
RSS page in the Slack App Directory. Next to your team name, click
Install. On the next page, click
Add RSS integration. Done — simple as that.
Add a feed from the App Directory
After you’ve added the RSS app, you can add your first feed:
Next to Feed URL, paste the web address of a feed you’d like to subscribe to. Don’t have one ready? You can subscribe to the Slack blog by pasting
https://slackhq.com/feed Next to
Post to Channel, select a channel where feed updates will appear. To add the feed, click Subscribe to this feed. That’s it — the feed’s added! Updates from the website will appear shortly after the site’s next updated. 🎉
Tip: Don’t worry if you’re not ready to add a feed. You can add feeds later from within Slack — and to any channel you like.
Add feeds with a slash command
To subscribe to more RSS or Atom feeds:
Copy and paste the feed address from the website you want to add.
In your Slack team, go to the channel where you’d like feed updates to appear. It doesn’t have to be the same channel as other feeds you’ve added.
/feed subscribe [feed address] and press Enter. Finished!
Tip: You could create a private channel, e.g. #rosa-rss, where you can add all your favorite feeds to make Slack your RSS reader of choice.
Manage your RSS feeds
There are other useful things you can do with the
/feed list to see all the RSS feeds added to a channel, along with their unique ID number Type
/feed remove [ID number] to unsubscribe from a feed Type
/feed help for a reminder of how to use /feed commands
To manage any feed you’ve added to your Slack team, regardless of channel, head to the
RSS page in the App Directory and click Configure next to your Slack team.
