Slack Integration Details

Launched on Zapier July 20, 2017

Simplify your team's communication with Zapier’s Slack integration. Zapier integrations, called Zaps, let Slack interact with other apps you use. You can automatically send messages when something happens in another app or use your Slack message to set off automated tasks. You can even use Zaps to spin up homemade, no-code bots.

Here are some creative ways to use Slack and Zapier:

  • Keep your team updated by sending messages to specific channels when people fill out your form on SurveyMonkey, Typeform, or Google Forms.
  • Effortlessly manage your to-dos by adding new starred Slack messages to Todoist, Trello, Jira, or other project management apps.
  • Archive Slack messages with specific keywords or emoji reactions in Google Sheets or Excel Online for safe-keeping.
  • Send a Slack message to congratulate team members whenever they win Pipedrive deals.

Zapier combines Triggers (like "New Public Message Posted Anywhere") and Actions (like "Add Reminder") to complete an action in one app when a trigger occurs in another app. These combos—called "Zaps"—complete your tasks automatically.

The following Slack Triggers, Searches, and Actions are supported by Zapier:
