About the Slack Permissions We Ask For
Pingpad is a fully featured collaboration app tightly integrated with Slack. For this to work, you have to give our app permission to access things in Slack. We aren't asking permission to spam your team or invade your business' privacy. Here's what about to ask for and why, and if it ever changes we'll ask your permission again.
Access and modify information about your Public Channels
We create a new Channel in Slack called #team-site with only you in it, and make it easy for you to create Pads for other Channel topic.
Add a bot user with the username @Pingpad
We invite the @pingpad bot to the #team-site so you can get started
Add commands to Pingpad
So you can /task to create a new Card, and /pp to search
Access Team's profile Information
This creates your profile in Pingpad, let's you @mention someone in a Note, and let's you look up and send direct messages to team members through Pingpad.
Access your team's pinned content and associated information
This saves Pinned messages for your tean to edit
Access Content in your Public Channels
This makes it easy for you to save and edit Slack messages with a Reaction ( e.g. :pushpin) , and interact with the @pingpad bot to create a team glossary.
Access information about your Private Channels
If you later choose to /invite @pingpad to a Private Channel, this permission let's us create a Pad for it.
Access Content in your Private Channels
Same thing as with Public Channels
