Previewing Whimsical files in Slack
With the Whimsical integration for Slack, you can unfurl your board links and see rich previews of files shared in your team’s Slack channels. This makes it easier to convey key information right in Slack.
Installing the app
To add the Whimsical integration for Slack and see a preview of your Whimsical content in Slack just by sharing a link, you can:
- Go to “Manage Integrations”, which you'll find under your Whimsical workspace name in the top left, then click “Install” under the app for Slack:
Then allow Whimsical permission to connect with your Slack workspace:
Note: You must have permission (in Slack) to install new apps. If you don’t, check with an admin in your Slack workspace.
Important: Any files viewable by members of your Whimsical workspace will be previewed when shared in Slack. This means some of the content may be visible to people who are not in your Whimsical workspace, if they are in your Slack workspace.
