In this section we’ll go beyond the quickstart guide to get a deeper understanding of how to develop and deploy apps.

It’s quick and convenient to install a new Conclude app directly in Slack. The interactive app installer lets you deploy a custom app based on an existing blueprint. For example, if you want to create an app for handling financial approvals, you may want to use the generic approval blueprint as a starting point.

App installer

There are several ways to install an app:

  • Click Conclude Home > Apps > Install App, or
  • Type /c app install in Slack, or
  • Install from the Conclude web app conclude.app/apps.

The installer lets you choose a blueprint as the basis for your app, and gives you an option to create a new channel for the app.

After the app has been installed, Conclude sends you a personal message.

The installer initializes the app with default settings that work well for simple apps. Click the Edit or Settings button to customize and fine-tune your app.

Launch your app

Run an app by using one of these methods:

  • Click the app’s launch button in Conclude Home under Dashboard or Apps, or
  • Type /c [my app] to launch your app, or
  • Type /c to see a list of installed apps, or
  • Launch it from the Conclude web app’s sidebar menu, or the apps page.

App builder

The app builder is a fully interactive way to build and customize apps from within Slack.

Start the app builder from Conclude Home or by using a Slack command:

  • Click Conclude Home > Apps > [my app] > Settings, or
  • Type /c app settings in the channel where the app is installed, or in any of its activity channels.

Edit app source

You may also create and modify apps using the YAML editor:

  • Click Conclude Home > Apps > [my app] > Settings > Code (source link), or
  • Go to conclude.app/apps and click Edit App in the app’s settings menu.

Tip: Create a playground!
We recommend that you create a Slack channel, for example #conclude-playground, where you build your own test apps until you feel confident enough to create apps for your entire organization.
