Slack + Chronus
Get instant updates on your mentoring program whenever, wherever.
Slack for Chronus allows you to be on top of any updates to your mentoring program and take actions immediately within Slack. With this integration, mentors and mentees can easily engage with each other or their program administrator at any time.
- Active Chronus & Slack accounts
- User carrying out integration should have administrator privileges in Slack & global administrator privileges in Chronus
- Slack Integration in Chronus should be enabled by the Chronus Support team (on request)
- The user with admin privileges in both platforms will log in to the Chronus platform, go to the Manage page at Global level. They will then click the Engagements card, then click the Integrations icon. Under Integrations tab you will see the list of integrations Chronus supports where Slack will be listed as below.
Note: Only after the feature is enabled by the Chronus support team, will the option to integrate Slack be available for Admins under the Integrations section.

- Clicking on ‘Add a workspace’ will take the admin to the login page of Slack. After entering the login credentials of their Slack workspace, Chronus will ask permission to access the Slack workspace as shown below.
If you are already logged into your Slack workspace, you will be directly taken to step 3.

Once the above steps 1, 2, 3 & 4 are completed, Slack will be integrated with Chronus.
