Note that currently your pages have to be public to pull them into Slack (we're working on this and soon your private pages will also be available).

4. Pull your data into your Slack channel

Use the following command to pull your data into your Slack Channel:

/ipp pull <folder_name> <page_name> live

So if your folder is called my_folder and your page is called my_page, your command will look like this

/ipp pull my_folder my_page live

Your Excel data will be displayed in your Slack channel as you can see below. Press the Start/Stop Updates toggle button to start and stop updates to your data. Click Open in ipushpull to view the data in its original format, or click Download in Excel to open the data in an Excel sheet.

You can see an example of one of our live pages by running this command:

/ipp pull LiveDemoPages DemoStocks live

For full instructions type /ipp help in Slack or visit this page. That's also the place to go if you are having any problems.
