What does Crossbeam's Slack App do?

Get more done with your partners, sales reps, and marketing teams with Crossbeam for Slack. Crossbeam is a Partner Ecosystem Platform that helps companies find overlapping customers and prospects while keeping the rest of their data private and secure.

Using Crossbeam for Slack:

  • Conduct instant and accurate account mapping with partners. Find out who owns your target accounts at partner companies, then use Slack Connect to collaborate and co-sell with them.

  • Seize on new shared opportunities as soon as they emerge. Notify and mention account executives on new overlaps in Slack Connect channels, allowing you and your partners to discover and discuss new overlapping opportunities as they happen.

  • Grow your partner-influenced pipeline. Find overlaps for accounts on-demand by searching with the /crossbeam slash command to shorten sales cycles and influence partner-sourced revenue.

  • Activate and accelerate co-marketing motions with partners. Use Crossbeam insights in Slack to easily collaborate on partner marketing activities throughout the customer journey.

As a heads up, you must have a Crossbeam account to use Crossbeam for Slack. Register for Crossbeam here and invite your partners today.


Using the Slack App for Crossbeam

Search for a Company or Person in Crossbeam from Slack

Type the following to search for any account or person that includes "Matomo" in Crossbeam from Slack:

/crossbeam Real Co.

You will get back a list of results that include the Company or Person name, your partners they overlap with, and a link to view the record in Crossbeam.

Search results are only visible to you, even if you do the search in a public channel.

However, if you are in a Slack Connect channel, you can "Share in Channel" to share the search result with everyone in the channel.

To search for a person, do /crossbeam people Jane Doe

If you ever need help, just do /crossbeam help

Slack Connect features

If you are using Crossbeam in a Slack Connect channel, clicking "View in Crossbeam" will take you and your partner to your own version of the account in your own Crossbeam account.

Get Notified on New Overlaps for a Specific Report in Slack

Notifications to specific Slack channels can be configured per Report by setting up Report Notifications.

đź”” You can send notifications to public or private channels (including Slack Connect channels), and you can route them directly to sales reps with Slack Mentions.

To mention your sales reps in report notifications for public or private Slack channels, make sure:

  • You include “Account Executive Email” and “Account Executive Name” in your population(s)

  • “Account Executive Name” and “Account Executive Email” are configured as columns in your report

To mention your sales rep and a partner’s sales rep in report notifications for a public or private Slack Connect channel, make sure:

  • Your partner is sharing data for their population with you, and the fields “Account Executive Email” and “Account Executive Name” are included.

  • You configure your Account Executive Name and Account Executive Email and your Partner's Account Executive Name and Account Executive Email as columns in your report.


  • If the account executive isn't in the Slack or Slack Connect channel, they won't get alerted — but they'll still get mentioned so other members in the channel can easily add them.

  • If you include the Account Executive Name in your reports and populations, but not the Account Executive Email, the notification will just display the account executive’s name.


Can I have more than one Crossbeam account connected to Slack?

Currently, no. You can only have one Crossbeam account connected to Slack. It will be the one that you are in when you authorize Slack. Connecting Slack in a second organization will remove the Slack connection from your first organization. 

Can I send notifications to private channels?

Yes, as long as you have invited the Crossbeam app into the private channel. This applies to Slack Connect channels as well.
