SlackSend Channel Message

Slack's a great way to keep in touch with your team, but sometimes you don't have time to chat and read through all the messages that have come in since you last logged in. This is an easier option. Just email a message to the Zapier email address you'll set up with this Zap, and Zapier will automatically add your message to Slack.
