Dropbox + Slack

Send messages to a Slack channel when new Dropbox folders are made

Slack is a great tool for sharing relevant files with your team, while larger cloud-storage services like Dropbox are great for storing them. This automation helps you get the most out of each platform without having to upload files manually in two places. Notify your team automatically with a Slack channel message when new folders are added in Dropbox, so they can access the files there immediately.
