SlackSend Channel Message

A GIF is a great way to call attention to key terms in a conversation. After this integration is active, Zapier will be your watchful GIF bot, always ready with a fun animation. Every time someone mentions a keyword on Slack (whether it's "deal" in #sales or "awesome" in #general), Zapier will automatically find a random GIF for it on GIPHY, and post it back to the channel right after, so the point is always made clearly.

Note: This automation uses Zapier filters to check for the keyword in every new message of a channel. This is "awesome" in #general by default, but both the keyword and channel are customizable

How this Slack-GIPHY integration works

  1. A key word is mentioned on Slack
  2. Zapier automatically searches for it on GIPHY, and posts a GIF to the same channel
