Ask a question from Slack

Modified on: Wed, 18 Mar, 2020 at 11:33 AM

Whether your organization is in a physical location or remote, Slack has become one of the main methods through which teams communicate today. From casual conversations, to collaborating back and forth on projects, Slack is where so much happens. 

A major part of that communication is teammates asking questions which are often asked and answered repeatedly over time. Once you set up the Stack Overflow for Teams integration with Slack, you'll be able to capture this knowledge by prompting users to ask their question on Teams. When the question is asked and answered on Teams, it becomes a shared resource for your entire organization, and searchable from within Slack the next time the question comes up.

When you see a question asked, that will make a helpful addition to your knowledge repository, hover over the message, and click the ... Actions menu.

From there, find the action Ask on Teams

That will prompt users in the channel to post the question on Teams instead. A link to a pre-filled draft of the question on Stack Overflow for Teams makes it easier for the ask-er to submit their question.
