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 this field, you need to select a date element from Slack.

If you don’t have relevant options in the selector, you need to add a new date field in the Slack setting:

  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. In the section About Me click on “+ Add data element”.

  3. Select the “Date” option in opened Modal Window and click “Continue”.

  4. Add any preferable Label and make sure that the “API” option is selected.

  5. Click “Create Element” and then the “Publish Changes” button.

  6. Return to the Orginice page. A new element should appear in the selector. Make sure that a new data element is selected.

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.
