Add RSS feeds to Slack
Have a favorite blog or news site? You can use Slack to subscribe to both RSS and Atom feeds and get updates in the Slack channel of your choice.
Install the RSS app
To get started, you’ll need to add the RSS app to your Slack workspace:
RSS page in the Slack App Directory. Click
Install. On the next page, click
Add RSS integration.
Add a feed from the App Directory
After you’ve added the RSS app, you can add your first feed:
Feed URL, paste the web address of the feed you’d like to subscribe to. Select a channel where feed updates will appear.
Subscribe to this feed to finish.
You’ll see updates post in Slack the next time the site is updated. 🎉
Tip: Don’t worry if you’re not ready to add a feed — you can always add it later to any Slack channel you’d like.
Add feeds with a slash command
To subscribe to more RSS or Atom feeds, use the steps below:
Copy the feed address from the website you want to add.
In your Slack workspace, go to the channel where you’d like feed updates to appear.
/feed subscribe [feed address here] into the message box and press Enter.
Tip: You could create a private channel, e.g. #my-rss, where you can add all your favorite feeds to make Slack your RSS reader of choice.
Note: If you get an error when trying to add a feed, try validating the feed at http://validator.w3.org/feed/.
Manage your RSS feeds
There are a number of 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 workspace, regardless of channel, head to the
RSS page in the App Directory and click Configure.
