Quip Integrates With Slack to Advance the Future of Team Work

Platform Integration Brings Collaborative, Shared Living Documents to Real-Time Messaging to Help Teams Work Together Better

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 10, 2016) - Quip, the leading team productivity suite, announced its integration with Slack, the #1 messaging app for teams, to streamline the workflow between team communication and document collaboration. Quip users can now create and share documents as well as post changes to documents in their Slack channel.

Most collaboration and productivity tools promise to improve how teams work and collaborate, then fail to deliver, leaving frustrated users to default back to email. This results in team and company knowledge existing in individual inboxes and ultimately stalling the process of getting work done. With Quip and Slack, teams are empowered by a simple and powerful document iteration process that's equal parts social and engaging.

Quip's key Slack integration features include:

  • Elevate Slack chats to Quip docs: Spark ideas in Slack conversations and give them structure in Quip docs where you can organize, discuss, and evolve your team's most important work. Using the Slack slash-command to create a Quip doc.
  • Securely share and preview Quip docs in Slack: Paste links to Quip docs into Slack channels and see a preview of the title and folder path.
  • Cross-post updates from Quip docs into Slack: Users won't lose track of ideas even if they're happening in both the Slack channel and a Quip document at the same time. Any @mentions, messages, and edits to a Quip doc will instantly post to Slack.

"Companies on Slack love communicating in real time rather than email, and there's a massive opportunity to give structure to those conversations and make them actionable," said Bret Taylor, CEO and co-founder of Quip. "That's where Quip comes in. By integrating with Slack, we streamline the communication process to put the work itself at the heart of the experience. The future of work is a faster and easier path to getting things done."

Additionally, Quip is a launch partner for the all new "Sign in with Slack" platform feature, which will allow users to sign into Quip, and other participating apps, with their Slack credentials for a seamless relationship between platforms.
