Error while trying to connect

"We encountered an error when trying to reach Slack.

For more information on how to connect Crosschq to your Slack workspace click here, or contact our support team at support@crosschq.com."


If you attempt to connect with Slack and receive this error, it is likely due to an issue on the Slack side. Please attempt to connect again to see if that solves the issue. Otherwise, contact support@crosschq.com.

 

If you receive the two error messages below when trying to connect, these are related to issues with the current user permissions in Slack. To resolve these errors, make sure that the Crosschq app is correctly added to Slack. Then disconnect and re-connect the connector to renew any token. Otherwise, contact support@crosschq.com.
