SlackSend Channel Message

Want to get status updates to your approval requests without leaving Slack? Now with the help of Zapier the tedious work is done for you. This integration posts a new message to a specific channel on Slack when an approval requests status changes (for example is Approved).

Note: It is a good idea to have separate channels for approval requests and status updates.

How this Slack-Approval Donkey integration works

  1. An approval requests status is changed on Approval Donkey
  2. Zapier posts a message to a specific channel on Slack
