Slack + Amplitude: Making it easier for teams to share and discuss user insights

Why & how we built a Slack app for Amplitude

If your team is anything like ours, you’re in Slack…a lot. At Amplitude, almost all internal communication happens in Slack, and it’s even our preferred method for talking to some of our customers.

Which is why when we were thinking about how to help teams share and discuss insights from user data, Slack was the first thing that popped into our minds. In fact, lots of our customers told us that they were taking screenshots of Amplitude graphs and pasting them into Slack for further discussion — not exactly an ideal workflow. Continue reading

Let's Build Better Products by Spenser Skates, CEO and Co-founder of Amplitude

Let’s Build Better Products

Last week, we announced Amplitude 2.0 — the next generation of our product analytics platform. Today, I’m sharing the story behind 2.0: the industry shift in how companies are building products, how our users shaped the way we rebuilt Amplitude, and our vision for the future of products.

Back in March of 1995, Microsoft released a product called Microsoft Bob. Designed with computer novices in mind, Bob was supposed to make it easier for the average person to use a PC. The interface was styled as a virtual home where you navigated between rooms to access different programs, all with the aid of an animated dog as your guide (whose later reincarnation showed up in Microsoft Office as our old friend, Clippy).

Slack Visual Links, Realtime Events Segmentation, Formula Improvements, and Auto-refresh Cohorts

1) Slack Visual Links

Note: Slack Visual Links and Shareable Links are only available on Enterprise plans.

You can share and visualize charts in the Slack messaging app. To share visual links, you must create a Shareable Link to the chart. Please note that anyone with the link can view the chart and data, even if the person does not have an Amplitude account with your organization.

Slack: Turn on Link Previews
If a Shareable Link doesn’t unfurl when you post it in Slack, it may be because you haven’t turned on Link Previews in your Slack settings. Here are their instructions on how to do so:

  1. In the top-left corner, click on your name to open the Team Menu.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. In the left-hand menu, select Messages & Media.
  4. In the Inline Media & Links section, check the “Expand links…” or “Expand website…” options.
