Integrate with a private channel

- Slackbot will send a confirmation message - Confirm by selecting Invite them to join.
Invite your organization
When you are ready to invite the rest of your organization to Lattice in Slack, create a new public channel, update the channel's name on your Lattice Integrations page, and then invite your employees to the Slack channel.
