SlackSend Channel Message

Welcome new members onto the team with a bit of fun! Once this automation is active, it will trigger with each new user you add to Slack, automatically searching for a "welcome" GIF on GIPHY and posting it to #general so they can start working with a bang!

Note: The GIF will be selected at random using the keywords you customize in this workflow

How this Slack-GIPHY integration works

  1. A new team member is added to Slack.
  2. Zapier searches for a 'Welcome' GIF in GIPHY, and posts it to the #general channel

Apps involved
