Access and Permissions

When a Sigma user sends or schedules a notification, they have the option to choose whether the notification will include a link to the worksheet or dashboard in Sigma.  Anyone viewing the notification in Slack must have a Sigma account with access granted on the report to view it live in Sigma.

Public vs Private Channels

By default, Slack notifications are only available for your account's public Slack channels. To allow exports to a private channel, add the @Sigma Notifications bot to that channel by typing @Sigma Notifications directly in the channel.
