Your team can quickly send praise to a coworker using the /praise command. Whenever someone in your organization receives praise or completes a goal or milestone, it will be recognized through an automatic notification in a Slack channel of your choice. 

Integrating Impraise with Slack keeps Impraise visible across the organization, helping to keep it top of mind and actively used for real-time feedback and goals between your scheduled reviews. 

Note: Personal development/Work goals will only be displayed if they are visible to everyone in the organization. This adjustment can be made within each goal.

Setting it up

As an Impraise Admin you can connect your Impraise organization to Slack, with the assistance of your Slack Administrator by following these steps:

  1. Go to the Settings page in Impraise

  2. Go to the Integration tab and then select "Slack integration"

  3. Click on the 'Add to Slack' button

  4. You will be redirected to Slack's integration page to authorize the integration.
    Note: You might need your Slack Administrator to authorize this.

  5. You will be reconnected to Impraise. 


  • Check "Private Praise" to automatically send notifications to slack when Praises are sent. The notification will only display the feedback recipient's name.


  • Check "Public Praise" to automatically send notifications to slack when Praises are sent. The notification will display the feedback recipient's name, the contents of the praise, and the feedback giver's name.

  • Select the slack channel to receive these notifications.


  • Check "Goal milestone" to automatically send notifications to Slack when goals are completed.

  • Select the slack channel to receive these notifications.

Tip: Connect Impraise to a channel that is reserved for a lightweight and general-purpose so people can casually review it when they have time. We recommend a #recognition channel!
Tip: The email address should be the same in Slack and Impraise in order for the praises to work.

6. Click 'Save' to complete the integration

Once authorized, Impraise will start sending notifications to the channel you’ve selected anytime someone receives praise and/ or completes a goal milestone.

Privacy and Visibility

Please note that the content of the praise will never appear in the Slack notification unless:

1. Admins have enabled Public Praise in their organization settings


2. the feedback giver has selected to share the Praise publicly.

Praises sent will be visible in user profiles in accordance with your organization’s anonymity settings. The exception is for Public Praises, which will always be visible in user profiles.
