Chatbase provides a quick and easy way to add an intelligent AI-powered chatbot to your Slack workspace. Integrating Chatbase into Slack enables your team to instantly leverage a wealth of AI capabilities right within your Slack workspace.

In just a few minutes, you can make a Chatbase chatbot available across your company’s Slack channels to improve communication, boost productivity, and enhance the employee experience. The chatbot will be able to understand natural language and respond to common queries, resolve issues, look up information, and supercharge your Slack with round-the-clock automated support

Here’s how to integrate a Chatbase chatbot into your Slack workspace:

Step 1: Access and Configure Your Chatbase Chatbot

These steps assume that you have already created a Chatbase account and that you have a Chatbase chatbot already available for use. If you haven't yet, create a free Chatbase account and build your first AI chatbot. For example, you can create a company FAQ chatbot to handle common employee questions or build a recruiting assistant to screen candidates and schedule interviews. Get your chatbot ready before moving to the integration.
