Slack + Runway: visibility for the right people, at the right time
There’s a lot your team needs to know about throughout release cycles, but it takes work to keep comms effective and orderly. Runway’s Slack integration provides timely and targeted notifications to take that work off of your plate.
Keep everyone in the loop, without all the copy-pasting
It takes the same repeated comms, week-in week-out, to keep your team informed throughout your release cycles — and to keep the wider company up to date on each new version that ships. Runway handles all this for you, with timely and context-rich notifications that can be directed to specific channels.
@-mentions at the right moments to ensure no balls are dropped
Missed handoffs and blockers that go unnoticed are some of the biggest causes of wasted time and increased risk in dev and release cycles. Based on roles and responsibilities across the team and during each release cycle, Runway can alert specific individuals in certain time-sensitive notifications to ensure that things stay in motion and nothing slips through the cracks.
“The transparency of Runway really <highlight>enables stakeholders and engineers to all be on the same page<highlight> and avoid the old dance of corralling folks for approvals and confirmations.”

Automated release-specific channels, to stay organized without the extra work
Creating separate Slack channels per release can help teams stay organized and reduce noise, but it adds manual busywork — causing many teams to forego the practice. Runway can create and manage release-specific channels automatically, giving you all of the pros and none of the cons.
Included: app store reviews posted straight to Slack
There’s no need for yet another tool just to pull app store reviews into Slack. Runway grabs the latest reviews, in real-time or consolidated into a daily digest, and surfaces them in channels of your choosing. From there, your immediate team and stakeholders from CX and Marketing can collaborate and triage in threads off each review.
Slack + Runway integration highlights
Granular control over exactly which notifications you receive, and to where
With per-notification settings that control whether an alert type is enabled, and to which channels it is sent, you can keep your comms targeted and avoid unnecessary noise.
Special release announcements so the wider org knows what you ship, when
You can stop manually cobbling together those Slack summary messages at the end of each cycle. Runway’s release announcements keep the entire company informed and include helpful context and links out to relevant release collateral.
Getting connected is easy and secure
Getting Slack integrated takes just a couple of clicks, and the connection is secure, with OAuth access that can be scoped and controlled from the Slack side.
Release better with Runway.
Runway integrates with all the tools you’re already using to level-up your release coordination and automation, from kickoff to submission to release. No more cat-herding, spreadsheets, or steady drip of manual busywork.
