Speed Up HR Tasks with Process Street’s New Slack App
Blog: The Process Street Blog
How many different tabs do you have open on your computer or laptop, right now?
I bet it’s a lot.
And, maybe you’ve also got tabs open for your HR management system, your recruitment software, your reporting platform, your payroll service, your employee engagement tool, and…well, the list could go on and on and on.
Am I right?
But, this makes finding the tab you need when you need it virtually impossible, it slows your computer…right…down, and even the simplest HR tasks can end-up taking twice as long.
“Too many tabs, in almost any web browser, will lead to overtaxed computer memory, a reduction in battery life, and, for sure, a cluttered browser workspace.” – Forbes, Too Many Tabs Open: Save Your PC Or Mac From Overheating
What if there was a way to speed up your HR tasks? What if you could get all your task notifications and updates in one, central place instead of several?

How our new Slack App helps you get HR tasks done faster
The new Process Street Slack App feature removes unnecessary steps, increases accountability, and improves productivity.
The Process Street Slack App puts the right information in front of you, at the right time
Juggling your day-to-day task list, taking care of your company’s employees, and keeping track of what your team is doing and where they’re up to with their HR tasks can be difficult.
As we established earlier, to stay afloat and on top of all your responsibilities, you often end up multi-tasking with a million different tabs open. Which is confusing, not to mention counter-productive.
Instead of using several different platforms to manage your employees and your HR tasks and team, wouldn’t life be easier if all the information you needed was right there, in front of you, in one central place?
Instead of constantly checking your emails, accessing your checklist dashboard, or opening up your HR checklists to see what tasks you need to work on; what tasks others need to work on; when tasks are due; if tasks are on track; if someone has mentioned you in a task, or if a task needs your approval, you’ll receive a notification in Slack.
With the Slack App, you can:
- Communicate with the entire company
- Get instant updates on progress
- Request items from the team
- Review work
- Action tasks
- Complete checklists
- Approve or reject items
Regardless of where you are, what time it is, or what device you’re on, you’ll get the information you need, when you need it.
Handy hint: You can cut down even further on the number of tabs you have open by connecting your Process Street templates to the HR tools, software, and platforms you use, via one of our Webhook or Zapier integrations. Automate your manual tasks and keep track of the transfer of information through Slack.

The Process Street Slack App allows you to approve or reject tasks on-the-go
Building a solid approval process into your Process Street HR workflows stops important decisions from being made without your input.
But, with a million-and-one HR tasks, employees, and team members to manage, crucial approval tasks can easily be missed.
Not with the Process Street Slack App.
Not only will you be notified in Slack when a key decision needs your input, but you’ll be able to approve or reject it there and then, with one quick click.
To summarize: How Process Street can help you do HR tasks better
In a nutshell, the Process Street Slack App connects Process Street to your Slack account, so you’re notified when something needs your attention.
If you’re familiar with Process Street’s HR software, you’ll know that you can use it to create standardized templates for all your recurring HR tasks: From onboarding new hires and updating procedures to interviewing new candidates and supporting career growth. You can then run individual checklists from those templates each time you need to complete a process.
For instance, you could create an employee onboarding template (like the one below), and run a new checklist from this template each time you need to onboard a new employee:
(To get this checklist, log in and add it to your account, or sign up for a free trial).
And, if you’re familiar with Slack, you’ll know that you and your HR team can use it to send and receive messages, documents, links, and notifications, instantly, from wherever you are.
The Process Street Slack App connects your Process Street HR task checklists to your Slack account, so you can receive instant notifications when:
- Tasks are due
- Someone assigns you to a task
- You’re mentioned in a task
- Your approval is needed for a task
Speaking of approvals, not only will you receive a notification when a task needs your approval, but you’ll also be able to approve or reject it, directly from within Slack.
How Sue manages her HR tasks with Process Street’s Slack App
Meet Sue. Sue heads up the HR department of a large financial organization with over 2,000 employees.
To help her manage her workload, and her team of five, Sue uses Process Street’s HR software.
But, Sue was struggling to keep track of her workload, her employees, and her team of five.
She spent most of her time checking what tasks had or hadn’t been done, chasing people to complete their HR tasks, asking for updates, and making her way through a backlog of approval tasks that she’d been assigned to without realizing.
She felt overstretched, overwhelmed, and completely over it.
Until we introduced her to the new Process Street Slack App.
Now, with one quick glance at Slack, she knows exactly which tasks need her attention, who she needs to speak to, what tasks need her approval, and whether she needs to take any action.
She doesn’t need to keep track of the checklist or chase for updates. She can relax knowing she’ll receive a notification when something needs her attention, or if she needs to take action.
With Process Street’s Slack App, she’s now able to focus on the bigger, more important HR tasks, rather than spending her time sweating the small stuff.
