SlackSend Direct Message

People talk to you on more places than Slack, but all the information can still be centralized on your chat app. Set up this automation and we'll do the rest: It will trigger when a new issue is added on GitHub, automatically sending you a direct message on Slack with everything you need to jump right in.

How this GitHub-Slack integration works

  1. Someone mentions you on GitHub
  2. Zapier automation sends you a direct message on Slack
