Slack Integration

  • Under Consideration
Slack integration is our top feature request!  Our company lives in Slack, and the integration would make starting internal meetings a whole lot easier.  How we'd like to see the integration:

- Have Blue Jeans listed on the Slack "available integrations" page
- /bluejeans would invite everyone in the current channel, group, or direct message to an instant meeting
- /bluejeans <user> would invite that user to an instant meeting
- Whomever types /bluejeans would have to have moderator permissions

Neal I don't see a ticket to have a Slack integration opened now but I have shared with our API Product Manager and he may chime in. Thanks!

Hey Neal, we've had a handful of folks make that request, and we're taking a look at a few ways to get it done. No promises/timelines yet, but we'll see what we can do - appreciate you being vocal about this; it's very helpful to the PM team to know what's important to our customers.

Hi Neal -

Feel free to put a request in directly with Slack. This will help them prioritize Blue Jeans as well. 

1. Go to the Slack integration survey here
2. In the write-in box for Question 2 - type in Blue Jeans
3. In Question 7, customer fills in their Slack Team URL/Site (e.g. company.slack.com/)

Hi Neal -

Thank you again for providing feedback. I am currently managing the development of the Slack integration and am in the process of collecting customer feedback to help us prioritize proposed features. I was wondering if I could pick your brain on why and how you would use the Blue Jeans/Slack integration this Friday or early next week? Thank you in advance for your insight. 


Thanks,
Simon

I know I'd love to toss in some feedback here. I have a few ideas based on how other services have integrated this feature. Not to mention Todd Figlio (my director) and myself are ridiculously excited about adding this integration.

Just let me type "/bluejeans" and have it drop in the link to my meeting room. That would be awesome when a discussion reaches a point where we need to talk.

Hi Peter -- (per my earlier posts) -- I am currently conducting customer interviews and would love to pick your brain on why/how you would potentially use the Blue Jeans//Slack integration.  Are you available this Friday or early next week for a brief discussion? Thank you in advance for your time.

It really saddens me that I got a notification that this thread had been updated, but it just had a +1 from Peter and now I'm part of the problem.

Noooo! don't be sad! We just simply don't have any updates. 1. I love Slack. 2. I know it's a conversation we have. But that's really all we know. I hope you filled out the Slack Integration survey (above) that Brett Smith posted.

Thanks!

Christiaan -- thank you very much for bringing that up. This is definitely on our radar and we are actively exploring possibilities. I also hope that we can leverage our learnings from the Slack integration.

I am trying to introduce Hipchat within our organization and Bluejeans would be a great addition.

Hi all!

As I discussed with some of you, we are preparing for the Limited Availability version of the Blue Jeans integration for Slack.  

Blue Jeans for Slack allows users to initiate Blue Jeans meetings with the /bluejeans slash command.  To use the integration during the limited availability phase (expected to begin in early September, 2015), please send an email stating your interest to support@bluejeans.com.



Thanks!

Glad to see movement on this, but being a BlueJeans user through enterprise SSO still feels like being a 2nd-class user. Can't log in on web, and now this. How about allowing login through Google so we can use the same Google Biz accounts that we're using to access Slack?

Nathan -

Happy to address your questions:

1. We are working with Slack to support enterprises with Blue Jeans SSO authentication.
2. We do not yet support Google Apps authentication to Blue Jeans but it is a high-priority item and will be done in the near future.

Let me know if you have any questions or would like to discuss.

Thanks,
Simon

For the folks using SSO: I really appreciate your patience as we work with Slack to enable it.
