All teams need great communication. Without that, everything goes down in flames! And because we want you and your friends fire-free, we’re rolling out even more ways to collaborate, in even more places. As of today, you can sync your Vimeo projects with Slack and get updates instantly, making it easier than ever to connect with your crew across the tools you use most.
Why it’s awesome
Now you’ll be able to see the actions you and your team members make on Vimeo projects, right in the Slack channels you’re already using. Any Vimeo member currently working on a video project — think a private workspace for your team — can connect their Vimeo account to Slack. From there you’ll start to receive updates on any changes made to videos in that connected project.
Here’s how it breaks down for our different memberships: if you’re a Basic or Plus member, you can link your video projects to your Slack channels, so all members of those connected Slack channels will receive updates as you make revisions to your videos — think thumbnail and title changes.
If you’re Pro and above, these capabilities become a lot more powerful. Members of your connected Slack channels will get real-time updates for any and all changes that your Vimeo project users make to the videos. And, in addition, you and your team can see feedback and updates to your video review pages (e.g. when someone annotates your video, or resolves a comment). As always, with Pro you can add up to three team members to collaborate, or invite up to 10 with Vimeo Business.
Once you sync to Slack, you’ll be able to choose which Vimeo actions you want to see published to your Slack channels. You can enable the following updates for videos in your projects:
- Review page comments, replies, and enabled or disabled review pages
- Any changes to privacy
- When a video is added to or removed from a project
- When a video is added to or removed from albums, channels, groups, or portfolios
- Any downloads
- When videos are published to social channels
- Thumbnail or title changes
- Deleted videos
Ready, set, Slack
If you’re not already using Slack (the horror!), you can download it now and start collaborating in a jiff with your team. On Vimeo, you’ll want to head to your Videos page. When you create a new project, you can toggle to the “Notifications” section to enable the Slack integration. You’ll be prompted from there to connect Slack to Vimeo, and select which Slack channels you’d like Vimeo notifications to be posted to.
To sync current projects with Slack, simply hover over the project name and click “Edit project,” or you can hit the gear icon next to the project name. From there, you’ll toggle to the “Notifications” section and be prompted through the same flow as above.
Then, voila! The most important actions you and your team take will now appear in the Slack channels you work from. So get started by creating a project and launching a review page. In no time, your team will be able to work more smoothly across all the places you rely upon — and we think that’s pretty wonderful.
