SlackSend Direct Message

Forward messages to selected members on your team with this Gmail to Slack automation. Once set up, each time a new message is received in Gmail, Zapier will send a direct message to a chosen team member via Slack. Make sure the proper team answers new emails when you set up this integration.

How It Works

  1. A new inbound email is received in Gmail
  2. Zapier sends a new message to you or a selected team member in Slack
