Slack is great!
It is not just a messaging app; it is so much more with its apps. OpsGenie’s integration with Slack is so thorough that it has become a top app in the Slack app directory!
OpsGenie's Slack app has built-in slash commands, which is an efficient way to execute actions on a channel. For example, you have the option to create an OpsGenie alert in a channel by typing a command like /genie alert [alert message] for [user team]. Slash commands are very powerful and cover the majority of the use-cases. However, there may be more you want to do in your Slack channel.
