To sync OrgaNice's fields with Slack profile fields and to have auto-update in Slack profiles, you need to make some changes in Slack settings.

Note that only Workspace Owners and Admins can add and manage custom profile fields for all members of their organization.

If you are a Slack regular member, please ask for help from the roles mentioned above.

To enable existing Slack field:

  1. First go to Slack settings “Configure Profile”.

    - Click on workspace title -> Settings & administration -> Workspace settings.

    - You will be redirected to a web page. Click on Menu -> Profiles.

  2. Select the section where you want to enable the field. Scroll to the needed section. Click on the “Edit” button.

  3. Select “API” option in opened Modal Window. Make the state of checkbox “I understand that changing the data source may lead to data loss. This can’t be undone” to be checked.

  4. Click on the “Publish Changes” button.

Once members answer the bot they will be able to edit their Slack profiles only on the org chart because the majority of fields will be switched from user-edited to API data source.
