SlackSend Channel Message

Let Zapier do the heavy lifting so you can stop checking Salesforce for new tasks and get notified in Slack automatically instead! With this Zap, you'll get Slack channel notifications for new tasks in Salesforce without having to do a thing (after you set up the Zap, of course). New tasks will trigger Zapier to send channel notifications in Slack so you don't have to search for new work.

How this Salesforce-Slack integration works

  1. New tasks are created in Salesforce
  2. Zapier sends a message to a specific Slack channel
