Get birthday and work anniversary notifications on Slack

With the Pause-Slack integration, you can set up Special Notifications to notify all teams about upcoming birthdays and work anniversaries.

Only admins can enable this feature.

Some prerequisites to enable Special Notifications:

Before you get started, please ensure that Pause has been integrated with Slack.

Please ensure that teammates have set their dates of birth and work anniversaries on their personal profiles. If a teammate hasn't set this information, your teams won't be notified about it on Slack.

If you're an admin and you have access to these details, you can add them to team members' profiles yourself.

To set up Special Notifications:

Step 1: Go to the Settings page on the top navigation bar.

Step 2: Select the Integrations option on the left side panel.

Step 3: Under the Special Notifications section, turn on the Birthdays toggle.

Step 4: Select the Slack Channel on which all members in your organisation will get notified.
