Integrate Lucidchart with Slack

Dreaming of showing off your cool Lucidchart diagrams with your friends via public or individual Slack channels? This tutorial will show you that dreams really do come true.

  1. Follow this link, and click the Add to Slack button.
  2. Login or register a Lucidchart account.
  3. Grant Slack access to your Lucidchart account.
  4. Grant Lucidchart permission to access Slack's list of names, channels, and the ability to send a message upon autocomplete (standard permissions).
  5. Accept the installation.
  • Add commands to (Your team name): Required to make the /lucidchart command work in your Team's Slack instance.
  • Send messages as Lucidchart: Required to allow the "Post to Slack" button, which sends an image of the diagram back to the Slack conversation.
  • Access information about your public channels: Required to pull the names of the public channels, and share diagrams directly into public Slack channels from Lucidchart's Share dialog.
  • Access your team's profile information: Required to pull the names of the users on the team, so we can autocomplete. If we do not autocomplete, the app cannot send a message.
  • Share to Slack: Users can share their diagrams with public Slack channels or individual Slack users from Lucidchart's Share dialog.
  • /lucidchart command: Slack users can now use the /lucidchart command to instantly create and share diagrams for quick and easy collaboration. Just type /lucidchart in any Slack channel, and we'll post a link in that channel to a new diagram that anyone on your team can edit.
