How to Set Up Player Notifications on Slack App

Player notifications alert you to any mentions of players in our Slack community.

Anytime a player is mentioned in the channels you have enabled notification for, you’ll receive a notification and see it highlighted in yellow. Even better you can set this up for the ‘Price_Alerts’ channel so if a player your interested makes a big quick price move (in either direction) you will receive a notification to your phone or desktop.

If you have a premium subscription you can also set this up for the news channel, so you can get alerted as soon as the players you’re monitoring or holding get written about in the press.

Setting up Mobile notifications

To set up player alerts on your Slack mobile app just tap on the channel name you want to be notified of at the top of the screen.

Select notifications and choose “mentions or keywords”.

Once you’ve done that, you need to go to the main settings of the app by tapping on the 3 dots in the top right of your screen in any channel.

Choose notifications and then scroll down till you see “My Keywords”.

Finally you can enter the surnames of all the players you would like notifications for in the box shown.

Setting up Desktop notifications

  1. From your desktop, click your workspace name in the top left.

2. Select Preferences from the menu.

3. Click Notifications.

4. Ensure “Direct messages, messages & keywords is selected.

5. Under My keywords, enter the surnames of the players you’d like to be notified about.

In the example above anytime someone types ‘Messi’ into one of the channels, an alert will be generated.

Alerts will also be generated when Messi appears in the automated price move reports.

Remember, you only need to enable notifications for the channels you want to be notified for. Many members just enable it for the price move and/ or news channels.
