SlackSend Channel Message

Notify your team of client invoices that meet certain age or status conditions. If your organization uses FreshBooks for invoicing and Slack for internal communication, Zapier can notify your team of invoices that are a certain number of days old or that have a status you choose. All new invoices added after you set up this integration will trigger a Slack message if they meet the age or status conditions. It's a simple way to keep from copying and pasting data from FreshBooks to share in Slack.

Note: This Zapier integration will not generate Slack messages for existing invoices in FreshBooks, only new invoices after you've set it up.

How It Works

  1. A new FreshBooks invoice is created and filter conditions are met
  2. Zapier generates a new message to a channel in Slack.

What You Need

  • A FreshBooks account
