Bring Disqus comments to life on Slack

Posted by Tony Hue on August 22, 2017

It’s no secret that at Disqus we love using Slack for team communication and collaboration. One of the things that Slack does really well is turn links you post into rich and engaging preview content.

What about links to comments on Disqus? Using the new Disqus integration for Slack, comments you share are embedded directly into the conversation so that you can see the entire comment directly in Slack.

Just type /disqus followed by the link to the comment and post your message. You won’t have the spend time manually copying the comment over and your teammates won’t have to leave the conversation to view the comment.

This is what it looks like:
