Hello Product Hunters! We are proud to release to you our new Slack Integration. You can now search for open data directly from Slack! OpenDataSoft is one of the leading Open Data solutions in the world. Our portal houses over 3,800 datasets, many of which come from our customers, and grows every day. Since Slack is the tool you turn to for your own projects and to collaborate with members of your teams, we thought it only natural to allow you to search for data directly from your channels. It's very simple: just add the OpenDataSoft integration to your Slack account then type ‘/data [keywords]’ in a channel. Once you've found a dataset, you can view it online (every piece of data is ready-to-view directly on the platform, so there’s no need to download and republish datasets to be sure they’re what you want), view the data on a map, do basic analysis, and then download it in any format or use the API. Everything is free! For now, the Slack integration only performs searches, but we are planning on adding plenty of new features. Please let us know what you would like, and join us on the path to building a smart data ETL search bot! :wink: Please get in touch if you have any questions!
