Connecting Slack with GitHub

I was hoping someone could please provie their expertise.

Our company wants to use Slack for messaging and connect to GitHub for storing of files and folders. They are going to pay for a private membership.

When on Slack, I added GitHub as an App. How do I get the repository with the folders and files in Slack? Any specific instructions on how to do this would be MOST helpful!

Thank you very much in advance for a complete newbie…

Hi @brianb193340,

The GitHub for Slack integration doesn’t allow you to open your GitHub repositories in Slack. What it allows you to do is get link previews in Slack for public repositories, set up notifications with slash commands, and easily stay up-to-date on project activity.

For more information, check out Slack’s documentation on this integration.

Thanks!
