Slack Integration

1up’s integration with Slack provides real-time, AI-powered answers to your team’s questions about the companies you track, including your own. This automated “question and answer” (Q&A) experience can save you time by delivering knowledge and insights from your 1up Knowledge Base to your GTM teams in Slack.

What You’ll Need

  • A 1up account. If your organization doesn’t have one, you can sign up for free.
  • A Slack channel where you want to use 1up. For example, a Sales Enablement or Competition channel.
  • Admin privileges in Slack. You may need a Help Desk or IT Admin to approve the 1up Integration for Slack.

How the 1up Integration for Slack Works

1up’s integration with Slack automatically answers questions by referencing the information stored in your 1up Knowledge Base. This includes information 1up gathers from the Internet as well as documents you upload/connect to 1up. When @1up is entered into a channel that has been integrated with 1up, and is followed by a question or request, 1up will return the most relevant AI-generated response. 

If no good answer is available, 1up will save the unanswered question to the Knowledge Base tab of the relevant company’s dashboard in the 1up web app. If you provide an answer to that question in the web app, 1up will reference it when similar questions are asked in the future from anywhere, including Slack.

Here’s what it looks like:

1up Slackbot

Note: 1up leverages Large Language Models (LLMs) to generate responses. While 1up strives to be as accurate as possible in its responses, it may occasionally generate partially inaccurate or incomplete responses depending on the structure of the questions asked and/or the data available in your 1up Knowledge Base.

Enabling the Slack Integration

  1. Head over to the Knowledge Base tab in your 1up dashboard.
  2. Click the Add to Slack button – this will redirect you to Slack.
  3. On the screen that appears, click Allow.
  4. Finally, go to the desired channel in Slack and just type @1up into the message field and press Enter.
