Microsoft Teams

With the Microsoft Teams integration in ContentKing you can get alerts right into any of your Microsoft Teams channels.

You can configure alerts to be sent via email as well as via a messaging app: Slack or Microsoft Teams.

If you have both Slack integration (opens in a new tab) and Microsoft Teams connected you can select either Slack or Microsoft Teams channels for the same alert definition.

Alerts in Microsoft Teams

Alerts in ContentKing are sent when important issues and changes occur on your website. You can read more about the Alerts in a dedicated article about Alerts (opens in a new tab).

When an alert opens, it will be delivered to Microsoft Teams right away, bringing your entire team up-to-speed at once and facilitating discussions:

ContentKing will also send a notification to Microsoft Teams once the alert incident has been resolved, keeping this way your whole team in the loop:
