Slack does not allow bots access to interact with private DMs or group DMs. There are three main ways to utilize the Manifestly service in Slack:
- From the ManifestlyBot home tab (video example)
- As a direct message to the ManifestlyBot
- In a channel – public or private
In Slack, by default, Bots can interact with all public channels
For private channels, you’ll need to invite the ManifestlyBot to that channel. See our article on inviting a Bot to a private channel.
If you have a DM between yourself and another person or group of people, our Bot cannot interact with this private DM.
