Slack App Directory Third-Party Apps for U-M Slack


U-M Slack, Slack App Directory


User requests for Slack App Directory apps to be installed in their U-M Slack workspace.


All apps and integrations in the Slack App Directory are enabled for the University of Michigan Slack Enterprise Grid. However, only Workspace Admins can add Slack apps to their workspaces. When an admin requests to install an app, it will be auto-approved (despite the need to request it).

Note: If a non-Workspace Admin, such as a Full Member, attempts to install an app, their attempt will not be successful. After requesting the app via the App Directory, the app will be stuck in "Request Submitted" status, and they should receive a direct message from Slackbot with a rejection stating they have to reach out an admin.

Additional Information

  • The only exception to this policy is the Maize & Blue public workspace where no apps can be requested or installed
  • Users can view which apps have been installed in their U-M Slack workspace by clicking More from the left sidebar and selecting Apps
  • Apps can only be removed from a workspace by the U-M Slack team. If you are a Workspace Admin and would like to have an app deleted from your workspace, contact the ITS Service Center with your workspace’s name and the name of the app.
