Frequently Asked Questions

Can I receive notifications in multiple Slack channels, or the different notification types to different Slack channels?

Unfortunately not, we currently only support one Slack channel per BlueTally account, although we are considering adding support for multiple channels.

Will I receive check-in/out notifications when any of the MDM integrations (Intune, Jamf or Kandji) or the Excel Import checks assets in/out?

Unfortunately not, notifications on check-in/out are currently limited to actions through the UI or through our REST API.
