SlackSend Channel Message

When you have a team that is doing different things on a wide range of platforms it can get pretty confusing. You need to have a common ground where all of the team can get share information.

Use Zapier to integrate information from diverse platforms on common ground. This integration helps you by sending new GitHub commits to Slack as new messages, so that your whole team knows what's going on.

Note: This Zapier integration only works with publicly shared Slack channels.

How It Works

  1. A new issue is created in GitHub
  2. Zapier adds that issue to Slack as a new message

What You Need

  • GitHub account
  • Slack account
