With OpsGenie you have the option of executing actions directly through our OpsGenie app. We have described how this capability can be used to gather additional information and enable alert recipients to assess problems efficiently in the post “You woke me up, now what?”
Directly through slack you can (1) forward alert activity to Slack channels and (2) allow users to interact with alerts, acknowledge, comment, close, etc. Refer to our blog post titled “Bi- Directional Integration with Slack”
