Automating Slack and WordPress
Last week, I released a new version of Ditching jQuery that included exclusive access to my Ditching jQuery Slack Team.
Currently, Slack requires you to manually invite people to your team. There are a handful of third party tools to automate this (they all use undocumented Slack APIs), but the only one for WordPress requires Gravity Forms, which I don’t use.
I ended up creating two WordPress plugins to automate Slack invites, depending on your preferred approach.
- Automated Slack Invites let’s people enter their email address into a field and hit submit. The plugin handles the rest.
- Slack Invites for EDD automatically sends an invite when people purchase an eligible product through Easy Digital Downloads (no additional steps required on their part).
