Not everyone needs to be on Slack. Make sure important announcements get disseminated as needed, even if they start on chat, with this Slack-Gmail integration. It will watch a specific Slack channel once you set things up. Whenever a new message is posted, a new email will be sent out from Gmail automatically, including the message contents and any additional information you want your recipient(s) to know.

How It Works

  1. A new message is posted to a channel on Slack
  2. Zapier automation sends a new email from Gmail

What You Need
