Turn off automatic file proofing

If you don't want every single file you share in Slack to be turned into a proof, you can turn off automatic file proofing in your ProofMe account, and then tag the ProofMe bot in Slack whenever you want a file turned into a proof.

Turn off Automatic File Proofing

  • Visit your ProofMe dashboard
  • Click on the down-arrow next to your name in the upper-right corner to open your profile settings.
  • Click on My Profile.
  • Scroll all the way down till you see the Slack logo, and find Bot Settings.
  • Turn on Only react when @mentioned.

Tagging the ProofMe bot

Now that you've turned that setting ON, the files that you upload to Slack will no longer automatically turn into proofs. If you want a file turned into a proof, you'll need to tag the ProofMe bot when uploading the file.

  • When uploading a file in Slack, tag the ProofMe bot in the Add Comment section by using the @proofme command (Just like tagging a real person).

That's it! Isn't Slack integration great!
