A picture is worth a thousand words, but not a thousand emails. Get a simple concise summary of new files added to Box delivered to you via Slack at the frequency of your choosing. With this Box-Digest-Slack integration, when a new file is created in Box, Zapier appends it to a digest which is delivered via Slack. It's all done automatically so you can focus on the things that matter, like the report that's due...or finding the most embarrassing photo from the weekend. Serious or silly, this automation will save you time.

How this Box-Digest-Slack integration works

  1. A new file is created in Box
  2. Zapier appends the new file to a digest
  3. Zapier delivers the digest via Slack at the hour and frequency you choose
