Using the Add menu to share application content

If your tenant’s administrator installs and configures applications for you to use, use the add menu to share content resources to your Challo tracks. The following applications are available to you:

Slack Yes Yes Share public channels only.
Smartsheets No Yes Uses Publish the sheet to add your Smartsheet to the track.

Applications appear on your ADD menu if your tenant’s administrator configures one of the following:

  • Configures an office suite integration for your entire organization.
  • Configures an application account for your organization.
  • Allows track members to add their own application accounts.

If you cannot see an application on your add menu, it is likely that your tenant’s administrator has to configure it.

To understand how Challo displays resources you add to a track, see: Sharing resources.

Adding resources to a track

To add a resource from an application to a track:

  1. Click Add.
  2. Click the appropriate application.
  3. If necessary, choose an account from Accounts.
    Some applications:

    • Use a common account for your organization.
    • Allow you to configure your own accounts. See: Adding your own account.
  4. Use the dialog to find and select a resource to add to the track.
    For example, the following dialog is for adding Salesforce content:

  6. In your track, reload Challo and your accounts appears under Accounts.

  2. Click Profile.
