If you want to keep up with message history and store them in your database, this Slack to Airtable automation can help. Once set up, each time a new message is posted in Slack, Zapier will create a new record in Airtable. Create a good reference for upcoming projects, and make sure you never lose a chat message when you use this integration.

Note: Once you setup this Zapier integration, you can open it in your Zapier dashboard and add filters to only archive messages about a specific topic if you'd like.

How It Works
