StatsLab now supports integration with Slack for certain functions, starting with version 3.06 (compatible with OOTP18, OOTP19, and OOTP20).

Configure Slack to Accept StatsLab Notifications

In Slack:

  • Log in to Slack as a workspace administrator
  • From your workspace menu, choose Administration -> Workspace Settings
    • This will open a new browser tab/window for your Slack workspace to the Settings & Permissions page.
  • In the left navigation bar, choose “Configure apps”
    • This will open a new browser tab/windor titled Apps.
  • From the left navigation menu, choose Custom Integrations
  • You should have something titled “Incoming Webhooks”. If not, you’ll need to install/enable it first
  • Click “Incoming Webhooks”
  • On the left, click “Add Configuration”
  • In the Post to Channel box, you’ll be asked to choose a default channel to post to. Pick a channel and then click Add Incoming WebHooks integration
    • Note that StatsLab has settings to override the default channel specified here.
  • The new webhook setting will be created and you will see information about how to configure an incoming Webhook.
    • Copy the entire Webhook URL, and save it somewhere.
  • Find the Customize Name field and enter something like “StatsLab Integration”. You can also change other things like the Descriptive Label and Customize the icon. A preview message updates with any changes.
    • Be sure to click “Save Settings”!

Configure StatsLab to Send to Slack

In StatsLab:

  • Log in to StatsLab as an administrator
  • Go to the main Admin page, and scroll to the bottom section titled Slack Configuration
  • Paste the Webhook URL into the Slack Service URL field.
  • Optionally:
    • Override the Custom Name field with a Slack Username
    • Override the Slack Icon with an icon here. “:baseball:” is a recommended option.
    • Override the Slack channel that you chose when creating the integration in Slack.
      • For testing purposes, you can use something like “@username” to send it to yourself.
